Reviews for Chihuahua Rescue And Transport Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I first adopted a Chihuahua in 2005 from CRT and another this past Dec. It was a wonderful experience both times. The dogs I selected had been checked out by a Veterinarian, had all their shots, and were neutered. I was given their medical records, personal items, microchip info, personality info, and even a little extra food that he was use to eating. The adoption coordinator called me a couple of times the first week just to make sure everything was going ok. I really appreciate the care that they give their dogs and they make sure that the adoption is good for everyone.

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 1 stars  

CRT is a very unorganized organization. There is no way to contact anyone who works there other than email address--no physical address or phone numbers. I inquired about adopting a specific dog about a week ago and still have not heard back. It really is a shame that their organization is so dysfunctional because they are losing qualified people who are interested in giving these dogs a home. There is no way to access any information about the dogs for adoption other than their name, age, and a few other simple identifiers. When I called the only number listed for the organization, I got a director in Texas and I live in North Carolina. She forwarded my information to my local contact via email but she never got back to me. It is clear that the woman I spoke to was dedicated to her job, but it seemed like CRT might just be very understaffed.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it easier to contact local CRT branches and shorten the time that it takes employees/volunteers to respond to inquiries about the dogs

Per the Northwest Regional Director, Laura Hasenstan in Cincinnati, Ohio, it is not permitted to allow anyone to adopt a Chihuahua who has a child under the age of 16 in their home.
The only exception to this rule is if the Child has "previous experience" with a Chihuahua living in the home.

If you have a child, don't waste your time. There is a huge difference in the developmental level and behavior level of children in the age range of 1 to 16, but not according to CRI.

If you work from home, are financially stable, have a very suitable environment, previous pet owner, excellent character and veterinary references...it doesn't matter. If you have kids...you are OUT!

A friend was rejected for not having a fenced yard. She had previous owned 3 Chihuahua's. A fence requirement for a Chi...really?

What a shame, they reject qualified applicants.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The adoption request process

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Modify adoption procedures and policies to a case by case basis by a qualified person.
