A second chance for Chiweenies

In June, our Humane Investigations team partnered with a local pet owner to release 11 Chihuahua Dachshund mixes into our care. Upon their arrival at AHS, our expert team provided the medical and behavioral attention they needed. Now, thanks to animal lovers like you, these sweet dogs are making the transition from shelter life to the loving homes they deserve.
