Looking to Adopt a Chihuahua in New York?

Operation Chihuahua

If you live in New York, and you have been looking to adopt a Chihuahua, your opportunity may soon arrive… err… I mean land! The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is helping to fly 15 Chihuahuas from California animal shelters with the hopes of finding them homes in New York and on the east coast. The project, dubbed Operation Chihuahua, will fly the dogs cross country on Virgin America Airlines.

Since many people in New York City need to have smaller dogs for their smaller apartments, and since New York City animal shelters don’t always have many small dogs, this sounds like a great idea. According to the article I read about this effort in the New York Post today, there may be additional flights to bring more shelter dogs to the east coast.
