Available Dogs

TO APPLY FOR ADOPTION: Visit our Adopt page for further details on our adoption policies and to submit a form requesting an adoption application. Upon receipt of that request, we will reply with our application and some basic instructions on how to complete it. Our application process normally takes three to five days depending on how quickly we can reach your references. Important Note: Ay Chihuahua Rescue checks references as part of the application process. Providing current phone numbers for your references makes the process much faster.

To give our dogs the best chance for adoption, we allow the submission of up to three applications for the same dog. Applications are not awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, but to which family can best meet the needs of that particular pet. It may be that all applications are “approved,” but only one can be awarded the dog for which all have applied. In that case, the non-awarded families will have “first right of refusal” on other dogs currently in or coming into our adoption program, as long as their unique family dynamic is well suited to their dog of interest. Approved applications remain active for six months, after which time, they must then be reviewed again to confirm positive veterinary and residency status.

Remember me? I’m ROCKY and although my Freedom Ride was weeks ago, I haven’t felt good enough for introductions. I arrived with terrible pneumonia and since I’m just one year old, I had a hard time shaking it. Ugh! Well today was my first day of REAL freedom – no leash and the whole yard to play in! My Foster Mom said she’d never seen four pounds of puppy flesh fly so fast! I’m ready to find my Furever Family now, so watch for ROCKY updates to learn more about me!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s SUPER VINNY!! Able to leap small buildings (and cyclone fences) in a single bound, this puppy can fly! VINNY is barely a year old and has a power packed backside that comically launches him just high enough to make sure he has your attention. VINNY loves to play and although any toy will do, it is tug-o-war he enjoys the most! Don’t worry, VINNY only weighs a whopping five pounds, so you’re guaranteed a win! You’re also sure to end up on the happy side of life if you adopt this adorable puppy. VINNY is special… he knows many basic commands and is already house trained! All this awesomeness at just one year old is amazeballs and he is ready to learn more… will you be the Furever Family to teach him?

Why are there only a few dogs here today? Ay Chihuahua Rescue can only save as many dogs as we have foster homes in which to place them. Opening your home to a foster dog, even for a short while, truly makes the difference between life and death for a Chihuahua in desperate need of help.

Can’t adopt, but want to help? FOSTER! Opening your home to an at-risk Chihuahua, truly means the difference between life and death for that dog. You supply food, transportation and tons of love – and ACR takes care of everything else! We are in desperate need of more Foster Families – especially those who are willing to take in young puppies and/or have experience with dogs rescued from puppy mills. If you are not training/behavior savvy, that is OK too! Ay Chihuahua Rescue has behavior specialists ready to help! If you are willing – we are able and together we make a life saving team!

Can’t adopt or foster, but still want to help? DONATE! ACR is a non-profit organization with no paid employees. As a volunteer-run rescue, every donated dollar is directly used in both medical and promotional support of the dogs in our Adoption Program! Your donated dollars ensure that all pets adopted through Ay Chihuahua Rescue are fully vetted and as healthy as we can make them prior to adoption. The Foster Families of ACR are truly wonderful, and this ensures your chosen dog will have had as much rehabilitation, training and love as we can possibly provide before joining their forever families!
