Our Mission

Chihuahua Rescue & Transport (CRT) is a foster-based rescue group that places Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes. 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. Please Opt to Adopt…Spay/Neuter —> Save Lives

Adoption Policy

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please submit an application.

We require an adoption application, reference checks and home visit before adoption.

We also require that all current pets be UTD on shots, on HW preventative and spayed/neutered. Adoption fee is $250.00 for Chi's over 1 year of age and $300 for Chi's under 1 year of age. Other adoptions fees are priced as listed.

We do not set up a meet-n-greet with a dog without an approved application and a completed home visit.

The process starts with an online application. When the application and references have been checked, a home visit (HV) is required. After the HV report has been reviewed by our board, a meet-n-greet will be set up.
