Nurture Your Inner Chi!

Recruiting Volunteers

As an all volunteer-operated organization, Ay Chihuahua Rescue simply doesn’t exist without the time and energy generously donated by our volunteers and foster families.

We are in special need of the following volunteer types:

  • Application Auditors
  • Web design teammates
  • Transportation

Every donated hour of your time directly translates to lives saved! We need YOU to make sure Ay Chihuahua Rescue can continue to fulfill our life-saving mission. Won’t you join our team of volunteers today?

  • Virtual Volunteers  – Virtual Volunteers can plug-in from all over the country with a scheduled/committed contribution to our ACR mission. Request a volunteer application.
  • Donate – Can’t volunteer or foster but still want to help? Donate! Every dollar you give to ACR, a 501(c)3 organization, is used in direct support of the dogs in our Adoption Program. No employees and no brick and mortar facility means your donations go a long way toward saving lives! Regular monthly donations are the life-blood of our rescue efforts and without your help, we cannot fulfill our mission.


Thank you to all our ongoing sponsors and recent donors!

Volunteer-Operated Chihuahua Rescue Organization in Austin, Texas

Ay Chihuahua Rescue is an all volunteer-operated, 501(c)(3) 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 backbone 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!
