At Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc., we are dedicated to finding the best possible home for each Chihuahua and small dog we have in our care. Also, we are committed to good health and quality of life for each and every little one that we rescue. All of our little furry friends are placed in healthy, safe and loving foster homes and, therefore, are not housed in a shelter situation. Our Rescue's mission does not end with just placing dogs in new homes. We work hard to educate the public on how to meet the needs of small dogs and how to avoid abusive and neglectful situations with these little pets.
Prior to starting Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc. Sue was a volunteer for another rescue organization. At first Sue was a volunteer doing home visits and helping with transport. Then she volunteered as the Colorado Coordinator. Since the organization didn't have a strong presence in Colorado, Sue decided to start Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc. Sue's business background is in accounting and management of for-profit companies, with over 30 years of management experience. Sue has been a pet owner all her life and her love for the Chihuahua breed, encouraged her to startup a rescue organization. She felt that most rescue organizations are breed specific and decided that the organization would specialize in Chihuahuas but would also rescue any small breed and mix, as long as they are under 15 pounds.
Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue is located in the state of Colorado. We feel very strongly that it is important to take care of the small dogs in need within Colorado. We do not take small dogs from out of state, nor do we adopt outside the state of Colorado.
