Thank you so much for considering adopting your new family member from Chihuahuas of the Valley!


We have amazing little dogs looking for their forever homes and we are doing our best to make the adoption process as fast and efficient as possible.

Please download a PDF version of our adoption application that you can fill out and then email to us at by clicking on this button:



Or, you can contact us via email and we will send you an adoption application to submit to us.


We cannot place holds on any available dogs, and cannot move forward with your adoption request until we are in receipt of your filled-out form.


We do not schedule any meet-and- greets without receiving an adoption application beforehand.


We consider all adoption requests most seriously, so please understand that returning a filled-out application is the critical first step! Also, filling out the application in no way commits you to any adoption, nor does it commit us to placing any dog in your home. This is simply you providing the information we need to move forward with your application to adopt.

Once we receive your application we will carefully review it and address any question or concerns that we may have.


Due to the volume of applications on the variety of our rescues we'd like you to know if you do not hear back from us within 1 week, please feel free to move on. 

Should your application be approved we will put you in touch with the foster home of the dog you are interested in. Together with them you will set up an appointment for a home check and a meet and greet with the dog of your choice.

We encourage you to have the whole family, including any other pets, present at the meeting to determine if the dog is the right fit for all of you.

Once you have found your perfect match, you will have to sign an adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and welcome your new family member to his or her new life.


Usually, the adoption process takes about a week from beginning to end. But please be patient with us!

All of our rescue dogs live in foster homes. The fosters have full-time jobs and we have to coordinate around their busy schedules.


Adoption fees for dogs is $300 - $500

For all dogs under 3 months of age that are not spayed or neutered at the time of adoption we request a deposit of $200.

The deposit will be refunded in full when you submit proof of neuter/spay from your veterinarian.

If you prefer we can also set up an appointment for your dog to have the spay/neuter surgery done at our vet clinic.
