I adopted Little Richard a few years ago. When he passed away I adopted Reece and now he has a pesky little brother named Oscar. All three were adopted through the Arizona Chihuahua Rescue and they were and are terrific little buddies. Love them to pieces.
Find out who we are and what we do
AZ Chihuahua Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization. Our network consists of experienced rescue people who were previously doing rescue independently and realize the benefits of joining together and combining resources.
We believe there is a home for every dog we foster. Some just take a little longer to find. Most dogs spend at least a short time in foster care so we can evaluate their behaviors in a home setting. We can give potential adopters information on how the dog may interact with cats, children, men, women, other dogs, and so on. These are vital components to a good match. We also try to improve potty training skills if they are not already house trained. Our foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our dogs for life in a world where fear and starvation are non-existent.
- To rescue, rehabilitate and place chihuahuas into stable, loving homes
- To educate the public about the responsibilities of chihuahua ownership in an attempt to alleviate the problem of unwanted pets
- To build public awareness about the human-animal bond and its benefits to society
What People Say
Benedict (the Chi formerly known as Cole) helped heal our broken hearts. We lost our 12 year old Chi and the house was too quiet and too lonely.
Benedict has brought peace to a house that missed having a dog.
We adopted Barbie from Arizona Chihuahua Rescue..im gunna say 5 years ago…she looked so much like Baby Girl another black and white that I had. She has been the sweetest girl and fit right in with Neecie. I think Barbie is missing her companion…i had to put her down Aug. 19th. It’s heartbreaking to see how many of these sweet babies that need permanent homes. I commend all of you for fostering and caring for all these babies and giving them a second chance in life!
