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.

****** Hurricane Harvey Update *****
To our CRT supporters,
We wanted to give you a brief update on the Hurricane Harvey rescue operation and share our next steps:
On Saturday, Sept 2nd, CRT was contacted by a Houston Area Hurricane Harvey animal rescue that over 100 Chihuahuas were involved in the rescue area. (See the video below). For the last 30 days, the SPCA in Houston has been working to reunite with owners. While many have been reunited, many more of these dogs will need help and forever homes. CRT has committed to bringing some of these Chihuahuas in to our program.
Here is what has happened so far and what will be happening over the next two weeks:
* One week ago, the Houston SPCA contacted CRT and asked if we could immediately help with a cruelty / seizure case. They had 21 Chihuahuas who had been seized and they were running out of space because of Hurricane Harvey dogs. We immediately drove to Houston and rescued these 21 dogs. They have been vetted and are being put in to foster homes.
* On Oct 4th, our CRT team will be driving to Houston to rescue about 50 more dogs that were Hurricane Harvey survivors. Our Midwest CRT Region and Southeast CRT Region Volunteers will meet us in Dallas, where we will divide the dogs and take them to their new foster homes in all three regions of the country that CRT serves.
* Once they arrive in their new foster homes, we will begin vetting them, getting them acclimated to foster homes, and will put them up for adoption as quickly as possible
How can you help?
* We need to raise additional funds to pay for vet work on these dogs. Here is a link to donate: http://www.chihuahua-rescue.com/how-to-donate//
* We can use more foster homes in every region. To foster fill out the information at: http://www.chihuahua-rescue.com/foster-volunteer//
* We will need new families for all of these wonderful dogs. To adopt, please fill out the following: http://www.chihuahua-rescue.com/adoption-application//
Stay in touch with us via our website and three regional CRT Facebook pages for updates!
