ACR gives a full on **4-Paw Salute** to Sarah K. of Girl Scout Troop 1154 for choosing the Chihuahuas of ACR as the recipients of her Bronze Award Project efforts. Sarah (whose family fosters for ACR) worked diligently for 20 hours handcrafting flashy and super fabulous bandannas to help our Chibabies get noticed and get adopted! Sarah met up with ACR at The Chi Amigos and caught us enjoying CHIsicles! ACR Chikids didn’t hesitate to drop everything and line up for these PAWSOME Bandannas! Thank you Sarah K.! You really know how to Nurture Your Inner Chi!

Senior Summer at ACR continues

September 19, 2016

ACR continues to enjoy a “Senior Summer” and some of our girls are a bit long-in-the-tooth. Of course, when you’re a senior Chihuahua – teeth are a rare commodity! ACR proactively assesses the dental health of every dog as they enter our Adoption Program. We treat about 85% with full dental procedures including Senior Panel Blood work (prior to anesthesia), pre/post surgery antibiotics, thorough cleaning, and extractions if necessary. This is an expensive, but vital step to a healthy “Senior Summer,” a step on a caretaking path that we cannot travel alone.

To help ACR Chihuahuas on their path to good physical and dental health please donate or consider becoming a sponsor.

ACR Seniors give TWO PAWS UP! in thanks to these donors who helped them smile a little wider: ♥ Diana W. ♥ Elise A. ♥ Christena G. ♥ Wendy L. ♥ Brenda M.

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

Gracie CollageLittle GRACIE needs your help. She is in bad shape along with so many others this year, with flea dermatitis plaguing her tiny 5 pound body. At only 5 years old she should be strutting a perfect white coat like Marilyn Monroe, batting those soulful, deep eyes at passersby…instead GRACIE was passed by at the shelter from which she was pulled. ACR looked passed her wretched exterior and saw the beauty within! GRACIE is a delight! Keeping you in sight whenever possible, she is truly a snuggle bug! Curious, a little silly and a lot ready to get healthy and get a home with Furever on a plaque by the door.

GRACIE is an adoptable Chihuahua in Central Texas through Ay Chihuahua Rescue. To help with the cost of GRACIE’s recovery please donate and become a sponsor!

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? GRACIE is here today because of the generosity of people like you.

Ay Chihuahua Rescue extends heartfelt thanks to our donors who donated to GRACIE’S health fund. You truly make a difference!

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!
