Little dog lovers, you’ll love this group! Chihuahua Rescue and Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue that takes in Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. All their dogs live in foster homes. CRT is not your typical Chihuahua rescue, they don’t just look for the cute and perfect ones. For every puppy that is either born into or taken into by CRT, they will take two senior dogs. CRT tends to take the ones that have extensive medical issues, hospice cases, and even more seniors.
“Our purpose is to extend public education and awareness regarding overpopulation, abuse, neglect, importance of spaying/neutering, and the tragic, high rates of Chihuahua abandonment and shelter euthanasia. We have placed thousands of Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes since 1996. CRT requires an application, vet check, reference check and home visit for each adopter.”
CRT does not warehouse dogs in a shelter. As in most rescue groups, our dogs are cared for in healthy, safe, loving foster home environments. CRT foster parents work very hard to be sure that their foster dog feels safe and loved while working on housetraining, crate training, socialization, etc. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, fecal tested, microchipped, on heartworm preventative and have all other veterinary needs taken care of (such as heartworm treatment, dentals, luxating patellas, etc.) CRT is known, and has always been known, for taking the injured, infirm and elderly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. Please consider the adoption of one of these dogs as well. Seniors and special needs dogs make great pets too!
