Recruiting 2018 Volunteers and Foster Families

As an all volunteer-operated organization, Ay Chihuahua Rescue simply doesn’t exist without the time and energy generously donated by our Volunteers and Foster Families. We ask you join us year-round in our life saving mission by joining our team of dedicated volunteers. We are in special need of inquiry response, web design teammates, and the social media savvy who can help us save lives from the comfort of your own homes. Limited physical volunteer opportunities at Chi Amigo Meetups, for transportation, intake evaluations and exit appointment assistants are also available. Every donated hour of your time directly translates to lives saved! We need YOU to make sure Ay Chihuahua Rescue can continue to fulfill our life saving mission. Won’t you join our team of volunteers today?

  • Virtual Volunteers  – Virtual Volunteers can plug in from all over the country with a scheduled/committed contribution to our ACR mission. Request a volunteer application.
  • Fosters – Foster Families must reside in the Greater Austin Texas Region, and be able to transport to northwest Austin for vet visits and Meet & Greets. Request a foster application.
  • Donate – Can’t volunteer or foster but still want to help? Donate! Every dollar you give to ACR, a 501(c)3 organization, is used in direct support of the dog’s in our Adoption Program. No employees and no brick and mortar facility means your donations go a long way toward saving lives. Regular monthly donations are the life-blood of our rescue efforts and without your help, we cannot fulfill our mission.

Volunteer-Operated Chihuahua Rescue Organization in Austin, Texas

Ay Chihuahua Rescue is an all volunteer-operated, 501(c)(3) 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!
