We are a Non-Profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization; A Companion Animal Rescue and Placement Organization; Registered with the State of Washington
CRandR is a Chihuahua rescue organization founded in 2005 by many volunteers.
CRandR uses years of experience, excellent reputation and a large network of rescue contacts in the US and Canada to facilitate the surrender, fostering and adoption of abandoned, abused, or neglected Chihuahuas & Chi Mixes in the Pacific Northwest.
We do this by making literature and information available to the public at numerous pet-related events and fundraisers. We accept small dogs into foster care, facilitate the adoption process, do home visits, coordinate veterinary care, help transport pets to new homes, and provide follow-up support with new owners.
Since CRandR does not have a shelter, "foster parents, located in MANY areas of WA" take our rescued Chihuahuas into their homes and provide the necessary love & care. In these homes, the animals receive training, socialization and evaluation. Lifestyle and needs of prospective adopters and pets are carefully matched to ensure the best placement. Potential adopters are asked to complete an adoption application and an interview with a CRandR volunteer.
We have rehomed over 633 dogs!
CRandR has fundraisers thruout the year to raise additional funds for these needy animals.
We have a few of our adoptable dogs on display at Outreaches:
*PetSmart - Burlington 3rd Saturday 11am-4pm
of each month
*Seniors 4 Seniors - a Senior’s Adoption Program*
• Adopter age 62 to 70 yr or disabled – Dog age 8 yr or older $50 fee
• Adopter age 70 yr & older – Dog age 8 yr or older $25 fee
• Must be able to provide Veterinary care & a back-up plan, in case you are unable to continue caring for the dog you adopt
WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT ANY AGGRESSIVE DOGS INTO OUR RESCUE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
*CR&R does not do same-day adoptions unless you are preapproved. Our dogs are located in foster homes throughout WA.
*Adoption application with references checked & a home visit are required. Please request an application by emailing: click here
*CR&R does not operate on a first-come, first-served basis. All dogs are individually matched to the right home and family.
*All CR&R dogs have basic health checks and are fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered prior to placement unless the dog is a young puppy, where we require a prepaid spay/neuter receipt from your Vet.
*Our basic adoption fees range from $50 to $250 depending on dog's age and health.
*We usually do not adopt to homes with children under the age of five years. Children between the age of five and ten years will be considered depending on the dog and family.
*Most dogs will only be placed into homes with fenced yards. Smaller dogs and/or seniors MAY be placed in homes without fenced yards, depending on the individual dog, however we will not adopt to rural homes with no fenced yards and we do not consider invisible fencing to be adequate.
