My husband and I had a very positive experience from beginning to end. These volunteers love what they do. They deeply care for the dogs and it shows. At every turn they were responsive, helpful, informative, *honest* and KIND - throughout the adoption process. Thank you, Texas rescue! We love our furry angel very much!

We adopted our dog Heights two weeks ago from the program. She is a very friendly and affectionate dog with excellent manners. It is clear that she was fostered and trained very well. She has excellent temperament and manners, she walks well on a leash, is obedient and eats well. Working with the tcr program was very enjoyable and the professional approach they took made us comfortable in the pet we were adopting. We found out about the program from a neighbor who used and recommend it and we would do the same.

Thank you

We love our new baby from Texas Chihuahua Rescue!! What an awesome place for these homeless puppies and dogs! The people who organize this and all of the kindhearted volunteers who donate their time are number 1 in my book. I was chosen to receive Zeitel who I fell in love with at first glance and love even more now!! Tamie and Catherine I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This is Sancho. We adopted him July 14th 2018 from TXCR and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. We also have two pomchi boys (they’re brothers) and it was such a hard process to adopt them. This was so easy. They gave us back to back emails about information, things we should buy, check in emails once we got him. Also, they did a home visit (or virtual home visit) which really shows how much they love and care for these animals. The rescue has such sweet staff and volunteers! If we were going to adopt another pup we would for sure adopt from TXCR. If your wondering they Spay/Neuter, microchip,deworm (if needed) and vaccinate all pups before adoption which is a great thing.

I would rate TXCR a 5/5 and fully recommend them!!

This has been a very positive experience for us! We adopted Kimmi last weekend and she has adapted very well at our new home. Her previous vet records were provided and her foster owner was very supportive and helpful.

About 2 weeks ago I decided to attend an event this organiation held in Hamilton- this is where I met my little fur-baby Charlie (was Genevieve). I had been in contact with other rescue organizations and I found the process with them to be slow, difficult, and overwhelming.
As soon as I sat Charlie down on my lap I knew that I wanted her to be a part of the family. The volunteers there were beyond sweet and helpful, they assured me they would get Charlie to me as soon as possible. I was nervous due to my negative experiences with rescue organizations but this time it was much different.
They were deligent yet VERY quick, I went to pick Charlie up the following weekend. They were in contact with me answering questions Prior to pickup and still email to checkup on her and offer support.
If you are on the verge of giving up on rescue organizations PLEASE give Texas Chihuahua Rescue a go- you will not regret it!!!! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart

Such a fabulous experience! I cant say enough about the amazing team of volunteers. They are a hardworking and friendly group of people. We spotted our wee Elden (now Oliver) online and less than two weeks later he was in my arms!
I love that we can have reunions with other adopters.
I highly recommend Texas Chihuahua Rescue to anyone thinking of adding a rescue to their life. We need more people like them.

Bella is wonderful! We didn’t get any pictures or videos before her arrival so we were a bit curious on how she would look but she’s absolutely beautiful. She’s such a lovebug! And has slowly been opening up and showing her true personality day by day. TCR made the whole process quite easy and worry free. We love what they do and are absolutely grateful for Bella (:

Chica (aka Wyla) is doing great! We were a bonded pair the moment our eyes met. She comes to work with me everyday and is fast becoming the highlight of everyone's day at the office. She follows me everywhere and barely requires a leash and it has only been a week! I really appreciate all the support and consultation from the Texas Chihuahua Rescue. They answered all my questions before the adoption and have stayed in touch to see how things are going. I would recommend them to anyone looking to adopt a Chi. My choice in adopting Chica was one of the best decision I have ever made.

We live in Ontario Canada and at first I was hesitant about adopting a puppy from Texas and having to pick it up in Buffalo, NY. I had no need to worry, however, because the process was quick and easy and all of our questions were answered. We were even sent a video of our puppy, which we watched almost every day until he arrived. Everyone at TCR was extremely pleasant to deal with. Also, we had no trouble at the border at all.
The puppies/dogs come fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped, and neutered/spayed, so the adoption fee is very reasonable (and also includes transport).

The entire experience was positive and exciting , and I highly recommend adopting a dog from Texas Chihuahua Rescue. We love our little guy! Thank you, TCR!

Amazing staff and quick process. Only took a few days to process his application. Chico (formerly stone) is a sweetheart and quite the cuddle bug. Couldn't ask for a better dog and a better organization to have worked with to get my furbaby.

I had been looking for a chihuahua for quite some time now and I found this rescue on Facebook. Texas Chihuahua Rescue has so many sweet pups coming in each day, it was very hard to pick just one. I had been looking for an older pup to give them a loving home for the rest of their days. I had found one, but someone got to her before I could, then another and the same thing happened.
Then one day I was just looking and they posted about my little man Pilot and it was love at first site! We are an aviation family with 3 other pups, Piper, 10 yr old chihuahua, Cessna, a 1 year old black lab, and our newest addition thanks to my sister in law, Amelia Airbark, she is a 3 month old chug. Now imagine my surprise when I saw this adorable little man named Pilot! It was meant to be, I posted many times on his picture about how perfect he would fit in with my pack and immediately emailed Tammi about adopting him. Next thing we know, we received an email stating Pilot was available and we could come get him!
I was beyond happy! We loaded up our pack and drove down to San Antonio to meet Kelley and pick up my little man. He fit in perfectly with our pack.
Everyone at TCRI are very professional, they are so loving with their rescues, they do everything they can to get these poor babies off the streets and out of these shelter to get them adopted to loving families. They work so hard and depend on us for donations to be able to help as many babies as they can and the work they do is absolutely fantastic.

Thank you Texas Chihuahua Rescue, Inc for all you do for these animals. You are all an amazing family, and let’s not forget all the families that take these pups into their homes and foster them until they go to their furever homes. God Bless you all!

I had a very positive experience adopting my first dog ever with TXCR! They responded promptly to questions, I was provided with all the information I needed as well as told what the process consisted of. Everyone I was in communication with was lovely. I felt supported throughout the adoption process and if I were to be having issues with my dog, I would feel comfortable contacting them for support/advice. This is an amazing charity, I would recommend it to anyone interested in adopting a chi! I'm very grateful for everything they do, and for giving me the adorable Serena, who I think is the best dog ever :)

After losing one of our four legged family members last year we felt it was the right time to add a new member. We always knew we wanted to give a home to a rescue dog this time round so spend some time online looking for the right one and came across Texas Chihuahua Rescue on facebook and after doing some research knew we wanted to go through them. From start to finish the whole process was fantastic they made it an easy process for us! As soon as we saw our little guy Ludo (aka Jojo) we knew he was the one. I have to say Shirley who we dealt with from the Canadian Team was just the best and nothing was to much trouble so thank you Shirley! Ludo has been with us for 5 days and he acts like he has always been with us and his fur siblings have welcomed him with open paws! If we ever wanted to bring another pup into the family then we would go through TXR for sure!! Thank you guys for everything you are simply the best!
