Get Involved


Our Foster Family Program is in need of new foster homes! Ay Chihuahua Rescue does not have a brick and mortar facility from which you can view our available dogs. We place our rescued Chihuahuas into loving foster homes who are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to give our pets the best chance at adoption! Unfortunately, without that physical facility we can only save as many Chihuahuas as we have homes in which to place them. Your decision to become a Foster Family truly means a Chihuahua doesn’t have to face death due to overcrowding at a local shelter, or worse – a tortured life in a clutches of unscrupulous back-yard breeders or puppy mill. Can you help us save a life today?

Check out this video of Eleanor Rigby who was successfully rescued and placed with a forever family as a result of being placed with a loving, volunteer foster family! Please complete the request form on the Foster Family Program page to request a Foster Application or email directly to


Ay Chihuahua Rescue depends on its volunteers in all aspects of our rescue efforts. There are many opportunities to get involved from transportation, adoption events, fundraising, web design, special events, etc., and we will happily keep you only as busy as you choose to be! Every donated hour of time makes a humongous difference in our ability to save lives. Visit the Volunteer page to request a Volunteer Application or send an email to and let us know you are ready to jump in and have some fun at our next event or adoption day!


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 members anymore. Your donations make it possible for us to save lives…and for that, we cannot thank you enough!
