Nurture Your Inner Chi!

We are an all volunteer-operated, 501(c)3 non-profit organization, whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Chihuahuas in Central Texas.  We are solely funded by adoption fees, merchandise sales, and principally through generous donations from Chihuahua and animal lovers just like you!  We do not have a brick and mortar facility, so all our Chihuahuas live with volunteer foster families dedicated to improving their health and mental well-being.  As the back-bone of our organization, our cherished foster families know that their participation truly means the difference between life and death for an at-risk Chihuahua.  This also means that without overhead, every dollar donated to Ay Chihuahua Rescue (ACR) is used in direct support of the Chihuahuas in our adoption program!  The more families willing to open their doors and hearts to foster Chihuahuas, the more lives we can save.  Learning how to NURTURE YOUR INNER CHI is easy, when you join us on our life saving mission.  Whether adopting, fostering, volunteering or donating… your participation truly makes a difference!

Our Foster Family Program is in need of new foster homes!  Ay Chihuahua Rescue does not have a brick and mortar facility from which you can view our available dogs.  We place our rescued Chihuahuas into loving foster homes who are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to give our pets the best chance at adoption!  Unfortunately, without that physical facility we can only save as many Chihuahuas as we have homes in which to place them.  Your decision to become a Foster Family truly means a Chihuahua doesn’t have to face death due to overcrowding at a local shelter, or worse – a tortured life in a clutches of unscrupulous back-yard breeders or puppymill.  Can you help us save a life today?  Check out this video of Eleanor Rigby who was successfully rescued and placed with a forever family as a result of being placed with a loving, volunteer foster family!  Please complete the request form on our Adopt or Foster page to receive a Foster Application or email directly to
