Nurture Your Inner Chi!


TRAVELER Thanks You and Ay Chihuahua Rescue does too!

Tiny and a bit timid outside of a pack, TRAVELER arrived at our door in need of medical care.
February 21, 2017

THREE PAWS UP! We put out the call for a Valentine’s Day Donation Drive to help with little TRAVELER‘s medical bills, and you responded with love! Here are the generous folks that helped get us very close to meeting our goal:

♥ Eileen G. “Brie and I wish to help with Traveler’s vet expenses. Brie is doing great and sends her ♥”.
♥ Yesenia C.
♥ Theresa C.
♥ Mary W. “For precious Traveler or any other chi in need”.
♥ Judy L.
♥ Holly M.
♥ Erika C.
♥ Antonio C.

TRAVELER has been steadily gaining weight and even found the energy to play a game of “tag” with the chickens. YAY!

October 29, 2016 – With 17 Fabulously Fun Contestants in the 5th Annual Halloween Costume Contest, Judges Teresa, Kimmy and Diane were hard pressed to pick just 3 winners. In the end, Mariela’s Hancrafted Ghostbuster Brigade, Carmon’s Day of the Dead Fairy and Desirae’s ACR Foster Bus took home the big prizes! Every one had a fun time and left with baggies of wholesome grain free treats to enjoy. NO tricks by the weatherman this year meant perfect weather to enjoy our Amigos… and that was the greatest treat of all!


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!
