Compassionate Animal Rescue Efforts of Dutchess County


Looking for super fun? Here’s Lightening!! Lightening Bug is a super happy Chihuahua who was lucky enough to escape from a dismal fate to the loving arms of CARE.

She was dumped at the NYC kill shelters with 6 other dogs. They were healthy and puffy and of course, got snatched up immediately. Lightning was left there with severe dental disease and two cherry eyes. We knew we had to help her. We immediately took her to our vet who did surgery on her eyes and did a dental and removed most of the teeth that were rotting in her mouth. Now that she’s all better, she needs a furever home.

Lightening is a 6-8 year old bundle of energy who is always ready for an adventure. She loves to go for walks and is good on a leash. She is housetrained and appears to be paper trained as well. Although Lightening is a spunky little girl, she is also very happy sitting in her dog bed while her foster mom is busy working. She gets along fine with her foster sibling and has been super friendly with everyone she meets. You might say she’s the life of the party! Lightening sleeps on the bed and is one of those dogs who loves to burrow under the covers. Need a snuggle pal? Lightening is your gal!
Due to her size, a household with older children would be preferable.

If you would like to meet her to see what fancy clothes her foster Momma will have her in come to the Petco in Poughkeepsie today from 11-3:30.
