We understand that there may be many reasons why you (or someone you know) can no longer care for their Chihuahua or Chihuahua cross. Please feel free to contact us via email to discuss a Chihuahua you wish to re-home.
We are happy to privately work with Breeders who are looking to re-home ex-breeding stock and happily accept dogs or puppies with special needs. There is no age limit on the Chihuahuas we accept!
Please see below for our information and forms, should you wish for private assistance in finding a suitable new home for your Chihuahua. Once your form is received, our Managing Trustee will then be in contact with you to discuss and make arrangements should you wish to proceed.
There are two options we offer in terms of re-homing:
Option 1 – Rehoming via the Trust
We are happy to take in dogs and place them in foster care with us if this is your preference. When dogs are placed in our care we provide behavioral rehabilitation, medical treatment, de-sexing, vaccinations, flea and worming treatments and Council registration for the dogs. Once they are fit to be adopted we vet the potential applicants and make sure that the very best forever homes are chosen. This process is free for the former owner. If this is your preference please fill out the form located below titled "Option 1"
Option 2 – Advertising on behalf of the Owner
The Trust will advertise your dog and vet potential Applicants in your area, however they remain with you until they find their new forever home. This process is free for the former owner. However, we will charge the successful Applicant a $200.00 re-homing fee to be paid to the Trust. This is because the Trust does not support advertising "free" dogs and there will be considerable time spent vetting applicants on your behalf. The re-homing fee will go towards assisting other dogs in the Trust's care. Under this option we do not provide medical treatment and it will be your responsibility to resolve any issues that should arise with the successful Applicant. If this is your preference please fill out the form located below titled "Option 2"
Are you interested in a dog advertised for re-homing on the website?
If you are interested in applying for a dog which is available for re-homing in your area, please download the form below, fill it out and forward a scanned copy to us, via email. The Managing Trustee will then be in touch.
Please note, when dogs are re-homed by the Trust, the Trust often has not met and/or assessed the dog and cannot be sure of its suitability with children, small animals or other dogs. A $200.00 fee is applicable and to be paid into the trust account prior to hand over of the dog. We will note on the advertisement any health issues advised to us but we rely solely on information from the former owner. The Trust does not assist with any medical care in the cases of re-homing and we are not responsible for any issues which may arise, the former Owner is to remain as your point of contact.
Please note: we are not an enforcement agency, if you have any concerns about the welfare of a Chihuahua or other dog, please contact your local SPCA.
