Adoption Policy and Fees

Our Adoption Policy at AZCR requires all potential adopters to complete an application and interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our dogs. We only adopt to Arizona residents. AZCR will determine the best home for each dog based on the application process and interview. The application and/or interview does not guarantee an approval. It also does not guarantee the adoption of a particular dog you may be interested in. AZCR may recommend a different dog more suitable to your household. AZCR is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the dog based on our policies and standards.


Why do you charge to adopt a rescue dog?

Arizona Chihuahua Rescue uses variable adoption pricing with the understanding that one chihuahua’s higher adoption fee will leave a financial legacy for other chihuahuas in need of extensive medical care or additional time to find their forever family. Our fees range from $100 to $400. Special discounts may also apply.

Please contact the foster mom of the dog you are interested in to find out what that adoption fee is.

Thank you for your interest!
