The Chihuahua Project
Chihuahua’s are the #2 pet killed in U.S. animal shelters (#1= cats, #3 = pit bulls). According to the ASPCA’s latest findings, approximately 2.7 million pets are killed in our nation’s animal shelters annually. The Chihuahua Project works to share positive stories of Chihuahua rescue, rehabilitation and adoption in addition to dispelling myths surrounding the often misunderstood breed.
Meet BLAIR! Blair was deemed unadoptable at the animal shelter. She’d been tossed into the shelter after her “owners” were done breeding her. She was in bad shape; covered in fleas, very little hair, a belly filled with parasites, unspayed, unvaccinated and emaciated, not to mention, terrified. Blair came to Advocates 4 Animals and fell in love with our co-founders. She is not fond of new people and has an incredibly difficult time adjusting to change (growling, barking and is not good around new people in general) and for that reason, she remains with A4A for the rest of her life (so that she’ll always feel safe and get lots of love!)
Blair loves to burrow under covers, howl while we are singing, go for walks, go to Crossfit/workout with us (she even participates in box jumps), and she loves to run wild with her toys and put on a show (which includes lots of excessive howling, barking and rolling on her back). Blair, along with the countless chihuahua’s we’ve rescued/rehabilitated/adopted at A4A throughout the years, inspired us to start The Chihuahua Project…to dispel misunderstandings and myths about the chihuahua breed and to share positive, uplifting, inspiring stories about chihuahua’s…in hopes of spreading the word about how wonderful rescue chihuahua’s are and to encourage more chihuahua adoptions from rescues and shelters across the globe!
