In Honor Of and In Memory Of
If you’d like to make a donation in Honor Of or in Memory Of someone, furry or not, please email our Treasurer. She’ll make sure it gets posted here and your donation will go towards helping all the little dogs in our care. We appreciate your donations and we thank you for supporting us and helping us take care of these deserving little souls.
We’ve had a lot of adoptions lately, which means that a lot of new Chihuahuas have come into rescue. This is a special program to begin their vetting process: Save-A-Chi! For each $50 contribution, we will publish the names of the donors on our website and in the issue of the newsletter immediately after, along with the name of the Chihuahua who was given a head start with their vetting process — a checkup and vaccinations.
Please help us to help these little guys. As I’m sure you all know, vet costs are rising along with everything else, and while $50 doesn’t come close to covering what we spend on each dog (about $250), it gives us a good start towards getting them ready for adoption.
If you can help just one new rescue, please send your contribution to
We’ll choose the very newest little rescue to receive your donation, and notify you of the dog’s name and the region where it is being fostered. If you have questions about the program, please email our Treasurer.
Best Friend Sponsorship Program
“What is a Best Friend?”
We’ll let some of our furry friends in need of Best Friends answer this question:
“Hello! We are Chihuahuas who need a forever home. Right now we live with a foster mom or dad who takes very good care of us.We know that you would love to adopt us but can’t do it right now. If you’d like to help take care of us you can become our “Best Friend.” You can make a weekly or monthly donation, or a one time donation. When you become our Best Friend your name will appear next to our photo and we will be so grateful.”
“How do I become a Best Friend?”
First, decide if you prefer to sponsor a specific dog… or if you can’t make up your mind feel free to ask us for help! We can provide suggestions for you! Be sure to include a note with any kind of payment indicating which dog you wish to sponsor, so we may list your name next to the dog as a “Best Friend.”
