Chihuahua Rescue and Transport (CRT) is a national foster-based rescue group that places Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes.  Our purpose is to extend public education and awareness regarding abuse and neglect.  We have placed hundreds of Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes.  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!  

We currently service the following states.

Midwest Region (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, Eastern Iowa, and Western Pennsylvania)

Southeast Region (North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland,  and West Virginia)

Southwest Region (Texas and Oklahoma)

Please browse our site to see Chihuahuas currently up for adoption.

CRT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, public charity.  We have no paid employees. We are dedicated to rescue, adoption and the medical care of stray and homeless Chihuahuas in need, and to help control the growing overpopulation through spaying and neutering all dogs in our care.
