May 1, 2012 > Chihuahua Palooza
Submitted By Christina Gin
Chihuahuas are everywhere from the red carpet to commercials to even having their own movie. They are small and cute but they also require the care and commitment of any companion animal and live up to 20 years. The challenge of owning these dogs sinks in quickly for many unprepared owners; consequently, animal shelters are inundated with too many Chihuahuass.
Visit the Hayward Animal Shelter between May 1 and May 5, 2012 to celebrate the small dog during Chihuahua Palooza, sponsored by the Hayward Animal Shelter Volunteers. To help find loving homes for these special little dogs, the Shelter is offering $20-adoptions on all Chihuahua and Chihuahua-mixes. Dog license fees still apply to adoptions by Hayward residents.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to adopt other big and small dogs, kittens, cats, bunnies and other cute critters.
To contain the size of the Chihuahua population, the Shelter is offering a limited number of FREE Spay and Neuter vouchers to City of Hayward Chihuahua owners on May 5, 2012 from noon until 5 p.m.
Discounted adoptions and the free vouchers are provided by Hayward Animal Shelter Volunteers.
Tuesday, May 1 - Saturday, May 5
