Chihuahua/Small Dog Rescue of Central Florida is staffed by a small group of dedicated, unpaid volunteers. We receive no commercial or government funding. Most of our dogs come from local animal shelters where rescue organizations like ours are considered a "last resort." This means that we are called upon to rescue the dog after it has not been claimed or adopted, and is scheduled to be euthanized. Because the shelters are often very full, the amount of time a dog has before being euthanized ranges from 3 to 10 days. After the dogs are rescued we place them in foster homes until we can find them a permanent home. Because we have already placed them in a home environment, we can tell you a little about their habits and house manners--something you will not know if you adopt from a shelter or kennel. If you don't see a dog on our site that you would like to adopt, please bookmark our site and check back frequently. Before adopting a dog, prospective owners must fill out an adoption application. Once approved, a home inspection will be required before the adoption can be finalized. At this time Chihuahua/Small Dog Rescue is unable to adopt dogs to individuals living outside of the Central Florida area (generally defined as within 200 miles of Orlando, Florida). Due to an overwhelming number of abandoned pet birds, we have now started accepting them in limited numbers. Parrot adoptions will require the same application and adoption process required for the dogs.
