Looking to add Chihuahua to your family? Maricopa County Animal Care and Control has nearly 200 for you to choose from. In fact, according to a news release, the shelter is so stuffed with Chihuahuas that some kennels are housing four dogs.
To help ease the crowding and prevent euthanasia of adoptable pets, the county is offering the Super Chihuahua Adoption Special through June 30. During this time, the adoption fee for all small dogs over 1 year old is $51, and includes spay/neuter surgery, a 4-in-1 vaccination and a rabies vaccination.
"We ask all residents of Maricopa County to consider a shelter pet as the next addition to their household," Andy Kunasek, chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, said in a news release. "Get out there and save a life."
