ABOUT US

Who are we?

We are all people who are Chiaholics and therefore devote our lives to save, rescue, rehabilitate and re-home chihuahuas from all walks of life. We rehome surrendered Chihuahuas that come from homes that hand then over for whatever person reasons. We also rehome breeder Chihuahua's that have entered retirement. Our ex-breeding Chihuahua's have lived in cages or pens for most of their lives and have not been part of a family or been a pet prior to rehoming. These Chihuahua's will need some form of integration to learn to become part of a family environment, and therefore we only consider loving patient knowledgeable families that is willing to commit to their on-going integration. It is difficult to give numbers in terms of fosters and adoptable Chihuahuas as they come and go on a daily weekly basis. But we have approximately 15 dogs at any given time looking for homes. We have 13 special needs dogs which is un-adoptable due to health ailments such as corneal ulcers, blindness, separation anxiety, psychological scarring and who suffer from post-traumatic stress and then of course the geriatric dogs and other we are attempting to rehabilitate. These dogs all need on going medical treatment and chronic medication. We do not have a shelter, all our dogs are fostered at loving homes where they can receive love and attention to aid in rehabilitation. All Chihuahua's will be sterilised before rehoming. We are all volunteers who have permanent jobs and our own families but devote our time purely out of love for the breed.

Adoption process

We do reserve our right not to home a special needs or ill chihuahua. We also first try and re-home in the area the chihuahua is situated in and will only in extreme circumstances consider flying a chihuahua to another province at the new owner's costs. All chihuahuas will be inoculated and sterilised before being re-homed.

Procedure to follow:

  • Be 100% sure that you know the breed.
  • Complete the adoption application form.
  • We will then contact you to arrange a home inspection.
  • Should the application be approved the new owner will sign an adoption contract.
  • We reserve our right to do a follow up check with prior arrangement suitable to both our representative and yourself.
  • Should the adoption not work out for either the chihuahua or the new owner the chihuahua will be returned to CASA and only CASA can re-home the chihuahua.
  • An adoption fee of R 1100 is payable to cover inoculation and sterilisation costs.
