Nurture Your Inner Chi!

chihuahua rescueVolunteer-Operated Chihuahua Rescue Organization in Austin, Texas

Ay Chihuahua Rescue is an all volunteer-operated, non-profit organization, whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Chihuahuas in Central Texas.  We are solely funded by adoption fees, merchandise sales, and principally through generous donations from Chihuahua and animal lovers just like you!

In-Home Foster Families

 We do not have a brick and mortar facility, so all our Chihuahuas live with volunteer foster families dedicated to improving their health and mental well-being.  As the back-bone of our organization, our cherished foster families know that their participation truly means the difference between life and death for an at-risk Chihuahua.

Donations Go Straight to the Dogs

This also means that without overhead, every dollar donated to Ay Chihuahua Rescue (ACR) is used in direct support of the Chihuahuas in our adoption program!  The more families willing to open their doors and hearts to foster Chihuahuas, the more lives we can save.

Join the Family!

Learning how to NURTURE YOUR INNER CHI is easy, when you join us on our life saving mission.  Whether adopting, fostering, volunteering or donating… your participation truly makes a difference!

DonateJUSTIN update! Thank you all for sending our little guy love and healing energy. He is continuing to do well and is on crate rest while he recovers from the icky heartworms. He received his treatment through Balcones Animal Hospital and everyone there loved him so much that one of the vet techs offered to foster him so we could open up one of our foster homes to another dog. So, rest assured JUSTIN is in very capable, loving hands. It’s a good sign of things to come!

You can keep up with his progress on Ay Chihuahua Rescue’s website or Facebook page.
