Chihuahuas in Hoarder Homes

Chihuahuas rescued

In Tucson, Arizona, pet shelters are full of Chihuahuas rescued from hoarder homes. Overwhelmed pet owners who didn’t see themselves fit for taking care of their furry buds anymore “dumped them” all over town.

In the last two weeks, the Pima Animal Care Center has rescued over 400 Chihuahuas, about 30 large-breeds, and a dozen other animals.

What’s even more surprising is the fact that many livestock is also present in the shelter. Even though rescue partners are looking to find permanent homes for these animals, many of them are still waiting on a forever home.

The director of the shelter said that they are currently taking 75 to 100 pets a day. Considering how that can be quite overwhelming for everyone involved, we seek out your help to make things better.

The caretakers noted that many of the Chihuahuas rescued (as well as other pets) are under-socialized and need dedicated owners. If that’s you, then this is your shot.

Those looking to adopt or foster can call 520-724-7222. Through July 16, pets that are four months or older are available without adoption fees.

You should be aware that licensing fees of $20 can apply to these dogs.

PACC, the wonderful shelter at 4000 N. Silverbell Road, is holding a free pet microchip clinic from 9 to 11 a.m. through July 1.

The facility is open from noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
