Rescue Spotlight: AZ Chihuahua Rescue

AZ Chihuahua Rescue (AZCR) is a non-profit rescue group staffed by volunteers dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating unwanted or abused Chihuahuas and placing them into loving permanent homes. While the dog is in the foster home, his or her behavior can be evaluated in a home setting. This allows them to provide potential adopters with information about the dog’s behavior and needs, thereby ensuring the best possible match. This rescue group also focuses on educating the public about responsible Chihuahua ownership.

The AZCR website maintains a listing of Chihuahuas available for adoption, which they adopt out only to Arizona residents. If you are interested in adopting a Chihuahua, you will need to complete an adoption application and meet with an Adoption Coordinator. The adoption fee helps cover the cost of medical care such as spay/neuter, medical care and vaccinations.

If you live in the area and are not able to adopt there are other ways to help. If you have the time and space, you can volunteer to provide a foster home for a dog waiting to find his or her forever home. You can also make a tax-deductible monetary donation, or donate needed food or supplies. PetMeds was proud to help support AZCR with a donation of pet supplies.
