Ay Chihuahua Rescue is an all volunteer-operated, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of the Chihuahua breed. All our rescued dogs are placed into carefully chosen foster homes. These cherished families provide love, health and mental recuperative care in a safe environment so that our Chihuahuas can thrive while waiting for their forever families to find them. We are committed to helping you Nurture Your Inner Chi.

Our love of the Chihuahua breed urged us to action when the plea for a breed-specific rescue group was placed. Chihuahuas have the second highest euthanasia rate in Central Texas and it is our belief this is due to simple overpopulation and lack of education about the needs of this breed. We strive not only to rescue but to owner-educate and provide spay/neuter options when available. We are a lifelong resource for all dogs adopted through our program and sponsor monthly meetups through Chi Amigos for continuing education, socialization and assistance.

Our organization is partnered with different animal shelters in the state of Texas. They let us know when they have dogs in need and if we have the capacity ACR takes them in and helps fix them up and find their forever family.

Over 650 dogs have been rescued through Ay Chihuahua Rescue.
