Meet Margarita (and Purgalcito) PR Chi

9y Margarita was rescued days before being delivered to a kill-shelter Nov 22. She’s a little angel on earth. Extremely docile, innocent creature capable of making friends with any other dog or cat. Super quiet, she's ideal for apartment living. She loves her daily walks, loves nature and car rides, which she can climb in on her own.

Like Pulgarcito, Margarita suffered from malnutrition and serious dental problems so many teeth were removed-- common for Chis To avoid more extractions, her teeth should be brushed weekly. Although a little older, she still has a lot of energy. A sweet girl who likes the comfort of a soft bed both at night and naps during the day. She knows to use the newspaper and the blue pad so can stay many hours alone in a house. Please apply so she has a home upon arrival to the US from PR.

Dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD on age appropriate vaccines, Rabies vaxed, and microchipped (not Lyme vaxed but we seriously recommend it!) All are in the NY/NJ area but we will adopt out of state to the purrfect home and in some cases, we can arrange transport. Please go to our site fill out an application
Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on Saturdays or Sundays, weather dependent--please ask by writing us at and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application early Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too.

Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!
