My mother has a 5 pound chihuahua.

If you mean for a visit, I would think so. Ask the Administrator or RN.

At my father's ALF they do allow pets within a weight limit which a 5 lb chihuahua would certainly meet. As noted in the earlier response the staff do not provide any care for the animals - no feeding, no walking, no toileting - so you need to take all responsibility for the animal. They also charge for any damage caused by the animal to carpets, floors, etc.

Some ALs do allow pets, but it is my opinion that the owner needs to be able to take full responsibility for their care - staff have little enough time to look after the residents without having to clean up after their pets as well.
