Lorraine is available ( Updated 08-15-2022 )
Lorraine and Marty would love to have a family of their own! How did we come to have two older and bonded Chihuahuas? We have a no dog left behind policy when it comes to families or dogs surrendered together. We wanted to save a GSD and discovered that she had been surrendered along with her “siblings.” Their owner had died and there was no plan for the dogs, as is often the case, so they ended up in a very scary shelter. We couldn’t leave Lorraine and Marty behind, so we welcomed them into the Coastal family.
The GSD sibling, Sadie, has since been adopted and is living the good life. These two are being overlooked, as they’re a bonded pair of adult, cream colored Chihuahuas- the shelters and other rescues are overfilled with dogs just like them. What those other dogs don’t have are their personalities! Marty is the embodiment of a warm hug and Lorraine isn’t a put-it-all-out-there kind of gal- she makes you earn her trust and then worships the ground you walk on, making your bond even stronger. They are healthy young seniors, around 7 and 8, super sweet, and have both had dentals and extractions since coming into the rescue. Now they just need a family to love!
As Lorraine and Marty are a bonded pair who would like to stay together, we will only adopt them as a duo (for just one adoption donation).
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
