Nurture Your Inner Chi!

We did it! Donations in hand, ACR wasted zero time getting GIZMO the surgery he needed. We are so glad we did! Not only did his bladder have one ginormous and another large stone inside, but an additional smaller stone had migrated and become lodged in his urethra, reducing his stream to a trickle. He will need to stay on a specific diet to reduce the chance of more stone development, but it costs about the same a high quality grain-free product and is very manageable for most.
Although walking a bit gingerly with a belly full of stitches, happy little 10-year-old GIZMO is up walking around. He is looking forward to returning in a couple weeks to remove stitches and get his teeth cleaned in preparation for joining a new Furever Family! Will it be you? Now that GIZMO is post-surgery, we are accepting applications for him! Visit our Adopt page to request an adoption application.
Many licks and tail wags to the donors who helped GIZMO get his bladder surgery! We couldn’t have done it without your support.

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!
