Chaco is a male red nose pit mix about a year old, currently available at the Needles Animal Shelter. He’s a talker, is good with other dogs, doesn’t like cats, has been around children and likes to be with people. In fact he’ll climb fences to be with people so he’ll need a secure yard. He’s reddish-brown with a white splash on his chest. He’s current on his rabies vaccine and is fully sponsored for alteration. The shelter also has several cats on hand. All pets at the Needles Animal Shelter are fully sponsored for spaying or neutering and vaccinations. Visit the shelter behind the aquatics center off J Street between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 8 a.m. and noon Fridays. Always check the shelter for missing pets. Call 760-326-4952.
