About Us

ACR Banner Header

Ay Chihuahua Rescue is an all volunteer-operated, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of the Chihuahua breed. All our rescued dogs are placed into carefully chosen foster homes. These cherished families provide love, health and mental recuperative care in a safe environment so that our Chihuahuas can thrive while waiting for their forever families to find them. We are committed to helping you Nurture Your Inner Chi.

Our love of the Chihuahua breed urged us to action when the plea for a breed specific rescue group was placed. Chihuahuas have the second highest euthanasia rate in Central Texas and it is our belief this is due to simple overpopulation and lack of education about the needs of this breed. We strive not only to rescue, but to owner-educate and provide spay/neuter options when available. We are a lifelong resource for all dogs adopted through our program and sponsor monthly meetups through Chi Amigos for continuing education, socialization and assistance.

Our ever growing volunteer base and cherished foster homes have provided us the opportunity to have a significant impact in the Central Texas community and we look forward to many years of saving lives!
