Nurture Your Inner Chi!


6th Annual Halloween Costume Contest

October 16, 2017

The most highly anticipated Ay Chihuahua Rescue Sponsored Meetup of the year is here – The Chi Amigos 6th Annual Halloween Costume Contest! Our Amigos are the most creative in town, and this is your chance to show off and have some fun! PAWsome prizes will be awarded to winners in three categories again this year:

  • HANDCRAFTED – you imagined it, then cut, sewed, glued, taped, and somehow made it happen!
  • PRE-MADE – you found the best costume online or in-store and can’t wait to show it off!
  • JUDGE’S CHOICE – this prize goes to a pup whose costume was maybe kinda sorta just a weeee bit, well… not the winner BUT they made up for it in attitude!

Contestants need not be Members of The Chi Amigos Meetup Group to enter the Costume Contest. They must however, be 25 pounds or less to enter the Small Dog area of Cedar Bark Park. Every costumed pup will receive a special Halloween gift! Invite your friends and family to participate or just come along to cheer but remember – if everyone comes just as onlookers we will have no one to look upon. So grab those bed sheets and bat ears to join all The Chi Amigos for some Spooktacular Fun! There is no entrance fee, however donations are always appreciated.

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!
