AY CHIHUAHUA RESCUE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported entirely by private donations from our community, adoption fees and merchandise sales. We do not receive monies from any government agencies. Through the generosity of our supporters, we are able to rescue the many homeless, abused, neglected and unwanted Chihuahuas in our community. Your donations are applied in direct support of our Chihuahuas. We have no paid employees and are able to save lives through the countless hours donated by our volunteers.Chihuahua Puppy

Setting us up on your bill pay program is a convenient way to participate in a monthly sponsorship. Automatic monthly donations give ACR the security of a steady, reliable stream of financial support to manage daily operations. Since we are a volunteer-run organization, we have no paid employees. Rest assured that your donation will go directly to support the dogs of ACR. Click on the Donate Button to setup recurring donations easily through PayPal. In return for your support, you will receive a regular update on our dogs currently in foster and the warm tail wags of a very thankful group of rescued Chis!

Every dollar you donate is applied in direct support of the Chihuahuas in our adoption program. When we adopt a dog into a forever family, we are able to pull another Chihuahua from death row at a local kill shelter, or from someone unable, or unwilling to care for their family member anymore. Your donations make it possible for us to save lives…and for that, we cannot thank you enough!

A Note from our President:Mistydawn Compton
“Has someone done something special for you, or have an upcoming birthday? You can give the gift of life in return! If you would like to donate on behalf of that special someone, whether it is in their honor or memory of a beloved pet, I will send a card personally, to let them know of your generosity! Please include mailing instructions and if you would like the amount to be disclosed as well. We cannot thank you enough for your continued to support of the dogs of Ay Chihuahua Rescue!”
