WE WERE ALERTED TO A HOARDING SITUATION IN A NEARBY COUNTY, WHERE 40+ CHIHUAHUAS WERE SEIZED BY THE LOCAL ANIMAL CONTROL. WE WENT TO THE COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL AND PULLED 11 OF THE CHIHUAHUAS, RANGING IN AGE FROM 3 WEEKS TO 5 YEARS. MANY OF THE DOGS WERE DEEMED UNADOPTABLE DUE TO AGGRESSION, BUT WE REALIZED THEY WERE AFRAID IN THE CAGES AT ANIMAL CONTROL, AND WE RESCUED SEVERAL OF THE “SEVERE AGGRESSION” CASES. ALL THE CHIHUAHUAS WERE VACCINATED THROUGH THIS GRANT, AND WE ALSO SPAYED/NEUTERED THEM (EXCEPT FOR THE NURSING MOMMA AND TWO PUPPIES). FIVE OF THE CHIHUAHUAS HAVE BEEN ADOPTED SO FAR. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE VACCINATION GRANT TO ENABLE US TO SAVE SO MANY OF THE CHIHUAHUAS. I HAVE INCLUDED PICTURES OF SOME OF THE CHIHUAHUAS STILL AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.
