Abandoned Chihuahuas get married in adorable miniature chapel ceremony arranged by shelter

In an adorable ceremony on Wednesday 9-year-old Peanut and 3-year-old Cashew exchanged marital vows at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) in Bexar County in Texas. 

An animal shelter is celebrating the union of two of its residents who have been described as "inseparable." In an adorable ceremony on Wednesday 9-year-old Peanut and 3-year-old Cashew exchanged marital vows at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) in Bexar County in Texas. 

To make the ceremony special, the shelter went out of its way to create a mini chapel and made it dreamy using a bubble machine. According to SAHS, which is a non-profit, no-kill organization in Texas, both Chihuahuas were surrendered to the shelter in April 2022 by their families who could no longer take care of them. 

It was during this uncertain and stressful situation that the pair met in the SAHS medical building. Both were having dental surgeries and when they came across each other the bond was immediate. It was love at first sight claims the shelter. Over the weeks, the staff watched their sweet relationship beautifully blossom and ultimately they decided to host a ceremony in the hopes that the two cuties find their forever homes. 



 

During the romantic ceremony, the pups were elegantly dressed up, with one wearing a crisp suit and the other flaunting a mini wedding dress complete with a short veil. "The ceremony was to celebrate their love and recovery journey," shared Public Relations Associate at SAHS, Lucia Almanza, according to Good News Network.

"Their small, intimate wedding day was shared with staff, volunteers, and our closest friends. The event included a beautiful walk down the aisle, bubbles, music, and cake, of course!" Almanza added about the ceremony which also featured a red carpet flanked with dog-shaped hedges.

"A couple of days before we had some volunteers who constructed Peanut and Cashew. Their very own chapel in their own time, complete with a bubble machine for added fun for the dogs," she added. Lucia also noted that Peanut and Chestnut are both up for adoption and are available to be taken home individuation. However, the staff at the SAHS, which was founded in 1952, is hoping that they two can find a home together to continue their honeymoon forever.
