At Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc., we are dedicated to finding the best possible home for each Chihuahua and small dog we have in our care. Also, we are committed to good health and quality of life for each and every little one that we rescue. All of our little furry friends are placed in healthy, safe and loving foster homes and, therefore, are not housed in a shelter situation. Our Rescue's mission does not end with just placing dogs in new homes. We work hard to educate the public on how to meet the needs of small dogs and how to avoid abusive and neglectful situations with these little pets.

Target demographics:

to help end the un-necessary euthanization of healthy, treatable and adoptable small dogs in shelters throughout Colorado.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

179 small dogs we rescued and we placed 194 into their forever homes.

Geographic areas served:

the state of Colorado

Programs:

We take in the small dogs and provided them with any and all medical care that they need, provide training as needed and get them ready for their forever homes.

CSDR is the best charity that I've ever volunteered with! They are very transparent, thorough and committed to making sure all of the little ones get into the right homes. I highly recommend donating/working with/adopting with CSDR. It'll be an awesome experience!

CSDR is a great nonprofit group. They make sure the foster homes are safe and the dogs get awesome care, whatever that may be. Very organized and friendly.

This rescue group has been so helpful and kind to the little furbabies in need of second chances. They are dedicated to making sure these dogs go to safe and loving homes, which makes me feel very happy and at ease. A wonderful group who truly makes a difference!

This group provides a valuable service to the 'little' ones of Colorado. A co-worker dedicates her time, energy, resources, and home to the care, feeding, and placement of Colorado's tiny residents. Keep up the good work!

It’s great to know that there’s a place where the needs of these small dogs are a provided for with tender loving care. The commitment of the organization and volunteers is to be commended. If you are looking for a “best friend” to add to your family – I would highly recommend visiting Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue Inc.

What a wonderful organization! Their volunteers have hearts full of love for each little one who comes into their system. These pups get another lease on life by being fostered and adopted by truly loving homes and the humans who become their new 'parents'. Everyone I know who is involved with this organization has lots of room in their heart for these little creatures. And they are diligent in working to ensure each animal finds a safe place for the rest of its life, whether that is 10 more years or just a few months.

I am incredibly proud to be a part of Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue. I was so blown away to learn that it was started by a woman who just knew she needed to do something to help these small dogs. Just a regular woman - not a woman with millions of dollars - and it made me realize that I can make a difference, too. I don't have to wait until I have a ton of money or until I can devote ALL my time to it. I can make a difference NOW. I am so thankful to Sue for what she has done and for what her example has taught me. This organization is filled with kind, warm people who genuinely love these dogs and offer whatever time they may have to helping them. It is a group of people who are working together and making a difference.

I have only been involved with CSDR for a short while ~ I am impressed by the care and love given to these dogs. These sweet dogs are given a chance at a happy, healthy, loving home because of the work done by CSDR. I'm proud to be a part of it and plan to be a volunteer with this non-profit organization for many years to come!

I did a lot of research of where to volunteer my time before choosing Chihuahua&Small Breed Rescue. They do a great job caring for the fur babies they rescue and also make sure that fosters and volunteers get training before working with the rescues. They are commited to their mission and the dogs they rescue. I am honored to be a part of this organization.

This is a group of very caring people. The little ones are well taken care of by all of the fosters. You can tell how much the volunteers care when you see them at meet and greets. It is a group that I am very proud to be associated with and plan to dedicate the rest of my life helping their cause.
