Nurture Your Inner Chi!

chihuahua rescueVolunteer-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!

paypalIn 2015, ACR could not afford professional pet sitters. When we needed help… we hired OZZY.? Working part time to pay his way through agility classes, Ozzy’s fee of 1-Kibble Ration/Hr (and an after-shift paw massage) was a very affordable alternative for us.? ACR’s Chihuahuas love Ozzy more than peas love carrots!? He is their dog bed, hot water bottle, playground monitor, protection against werecats, confidence builder… Ozzy’s patience, resum?, and skill set are endless!

Unfortunately, Public Agility Community College (PACC) increased tuition forcing Ozzy to raise his rates for 2016.

Please help!? Donate this year to Ay Chihuahua Rescue.? Our Adoption Program is full of worried Chihuahuas – they don’t want to lose their best friend.? Help us keep Ozzy in Kibble, and our Chihuahuas happy and safe while they wait for their forever families to find them.
