Almost 50 Chihuahuas Found at One Home
March 31, 2021 | North Charleston, SC
This week our team responded to a call for help from Anderson County PAWS to assist with nearly 50 dogs that were rescued from a home in the Upstate. Police officers were notified of an elderly woman who needed assistance and during their wellness check they found the chihuahuas on the woman’s property. The woman received the medical attention she needed and all dogs were removed from the property due to poor living conditions.
To make space for these rescued chihuahuas, we need to get as many of our current dogs adopted as soon as possible. Can you make room for one more?
When our staff was notified of this situation, we deployed a rescue team to Anderson County PAWs. Through our No Kill South Carolina 2024 initiative, we are working diligently with our network of South Carolina shelters to make sure that each dog has the best chance at a safe future in a loving home.
We brought 23 of these chihuahuas back to Charleston Animal Society from our Upstate partners. Of those 23 dogs, 11 will receive care here while the other 12 will be cared for at another local sister shelter.
All of the chihuahuas were shy and shaking with fear when they arrived, but our veterinary and behavior teams will evaluate their needs and make a plan for their care. Our expert animal care team is working hard to help these dogs feel safe and comfortable with all the cozy beds, blankets, toys and food they could need.
Your support can provide all the necessary training and medical care for these dogs to thrive. Help us guarantee a safe future for these chihuahuas and other animals in need by donating today! We also have a number of wonderful cats, dogs and rabbits looking for a loving home right now. If you are thinking about adopting a new furry friend, now is a great time to come meet some incredible animals that would love to join your family.
