Nurture Your Inner Chi!

You helped save a life! Can you chip in to help save another?


It’s never the plan of a rescue group like ACR to have one of our animals end up ill or suffering, but it does happen. This week, the old saying “When it RAINS, it pours” certainly held true. Our poor RAIN (ACR16-0019) presented with many multiple coinciding medical crises that required significant and involved urgent medical care– RAIN presented with: Distressed breathing. Suspect GI blockage that might have required emergency ultrasound and surgery. Diarrhea. Vomiting. Infected paw pad. General malaise and seriously off-kilter blood work stemming in part from major parasitic infestations inside and out which she had when she came into our care. The great news is that RAIN is doing well and is stable, and at this point, has not needed surgery. She is on broad spectrum antibiotics and antiparasitics, and under the watchful eye of her foster caregiver and our veterinary team. Her care is ongoing. Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 8.57.16 PM

Here’s where YOU come in: The even greater news is that YOU made it possible to provide her with the complete and emergent care she needed through your donations and support; but as one would expect, taking on a medical case such as RAIN’s means that our reserves were depleted. It’s what it’s there for, but in order to be there for the next Chi-Baby who needs emergent help, we need to refill those reserves. So that we can be there and ready to act the next time one of our littles is in crisis, can you make a donation today to help make sure we can do exactly that? No donation is too small– after all, as Chihuahua lovers, we know that very big things come in and can happen in tiny packages.

Can you help us today? RAIN is here today because of the generosity of people like you.Donate

Volunteer-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!
