As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Meet Dollar and Peso at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every Thursday we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pets are Dollar and Peso. Read more about them below! 
 
Name: Dollar and Peso 
ID: #10019 and #10020  
Gender: Male
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Age: 8-9 years 
Weight: 8 pounds
Fur: Fawn Colored 
 
If you have a soft spot in your heart for senior dogs, please consider adopting Dollar and Pesoeither alone or as a pair. These boys are Chihuahuas and clearly share some DNA. They look very much alike, although Dollar may be a year older than Peso, according to information provided when they were surrendered to the shelter.
 
They are fawn colored and weigh around 7-8 pounds. They have short coats that do not require much grooming care other than bathing and brushing on occasion.
 
Dollar and Peso were “backyard dogs” without a lot of hands-on affection. As a result, they were initially uncomfortable with being picked up and handled.  After further interaction with our volunteers, they have become more affectionate and responsive, and will often come up to put their paws on our legs for attention. Dollar likes a good back rub, and Peso enjoys some lap time.
 
As they are getting older now, Dollar and Peso really deserve to have a more comfortable environment outside of the shelter. Although they are well cared for by our staff and volunteers, these boys would be so grateful for a nice soft, warm bed at night in a quiet loving home. They are not demanding, and would not ask for much more.
 
If you can give some love to these senior boys, they would be eternally thankful and loyal to you. They have earned a comfortable “retirement home” for their senior years. Maybe it is with you?
 
Their adoption fees are $120 each, which includes neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations, and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.  
 
They are eligible for the shelter’s "Senior For Senior" reduced fee adoption program. If the adopters are seniors (50 and over) the cost of each adoptee is $39.00. If the pets are adopted together under the shelter’s "Buddy Plan," the cost is $201.00 total for both dogs. 
 
If you are interested in meeting Dollar and Peso or any of the other wonderful animals at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Avenue, San Gabriel. We're open Tuesday through Sunday (the shelter is closed Mondays.)  For more information, call (626) 286-1159 or visit our website
