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.
