Chihuahua and Chihuahua Mixes make up anywhere between 30% and 50% of the average shelter population at any given time and many are needlessly euthanized to make room for the incoming homeless population.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Sadie's Safe House is working to decrease the number of homeless Chihuahua and Chihuahua Mixes.

Sadie's Safe House pulls animals from "high-kill" shelters and make sure they get spayed/neutered before adopting them out so they cannot reproduce. We also do the same for animals surrendered directly to the rescue by their owners.

Sadie's Safe House has formed partnerships with other rescues, shelters, independent individuals and veterinary clinics across the United States to be able to help as many animals as we can.

In 2018, 44 dogs were accepted into the rescue and 30 found their forever homes. The majority of these animals were intact and capable of reproducing at time of intake. All animals are now spayed/neutered. It is an uphill battle that we will continue fighting until we can't fight anymore.
