I love Texas Chihuahua Rescue! I love our compassion for savings seniors, little dogs that are in peril and all the Chihuahuas & mixes we take in. We have the most amaxing foster homes that help us until we can find furever homes for the dogs we rescue. Our partnership with a team in Canada is helping us find more homes for the dogs we rescue. We are so fortunate to have a wonderful Facebook following to help us find the funds to care for these dogs!

Our sweet Thea is a 3 year old chi mix, and owes her life to TXCR. She was found by them in a shelter, pregnant and on death row. The took her in, helped her to deliver her puppies safely, and then fostered her for over a year while she battled some stubborn heartworms. When she was listed for adoption, we fell in love. The rescue team was so incredibly helpful and warm throughout the interview and adoption process. They delivered her to our home, where she was a perfect fit for our family. She has been so gentle and loving with myself, my partner, and our 5 year old daughter. She has such an incredible temperament, sleeping in all of our laps, soaking up the snuggles, and basking in the love. She is quiet, incredibly well behaved both indoors and outdoors, walks so well on her harness thst our daughter is able to walk her with zero trouble. We cannot believe how lucky we are to have found her, and the entire TXCR team. We could not have asked for a better match, and feel so much gratitude towards these wonderful people for enriching our lives with Thea's presence. This rescue will be our go to for any future fur babies, no questions about it. They are angels, and they have given us such a beautiful gift. Thank you, team, for saving our sweet girl, and for fostering her thorough her most trying times. You are truly changing lives with all you do.

We have adopted 2 adorable Chis from TCR,I and have not regretted either adoption. We adopted ChaCha 2 years ago after loosing our precious Chiquita. We recently adopted a Senior Chi, Evie. ChaCha was adopted as a Therapy dog for my husband who had been diagnosed with Anxiety and she visits him in the hospital when he is there. She is a Beautiful, smart and Loving little Chi. I When I saw Evie's picture she just tugged at my heart and I knew she would live the rest of her years with us in Utopia Texas. She is deaf and probably around 14 years old. She barks at us when she needs to potty or eat. Her big round eyes follow us everywhere. ChaCha & Evie love to play "Chase Mz Kittie" Evie still haven't decided about Big dog brother, Bear & Big dog Sister, LOla and just watches BIG cat Brother Turk. When she sees me in the kitchen, she follows me and watches me with those Big Beautiful Black eyes. She has taken to our home as if she had lived here her whole life. We love both our girls. TCRI is an incredible group of loving humans, doing an impossible job trying to ease the suffering of some of the Homeless dogs. If you're contemplating getting a Chihuahua or any pet PLEASE RESCUE instead of buying. Too many Homeless dogs & cats get put down.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for giving us Indie. My wife would go to our local Petsmart every saturday to look at Chihuahuas and when she saw India (now Sandy) she fell in love. She is such a sweet girl! She is getting along very well with our two Golden Retrievers.
Again, thank you for taking your time come to our house and trusting us to take care of her.

Best Regards, Gary And Yoshiko Penton.

Texas Chihuahua Rescue is by far the most incredible group of compassionate people I have ever encountered. I adopted a little chi from Texas and he was safely transported all the way to Burlington, Ontario just a few days ago. During the adoption process, after the adoption was confirmed, and even after my little chi's arrival, Texas Chihuahua Rescue continued to support and walk me through everything. They are so easy to communicate with and try their hardest to be there when you need them, or even when you don't need them! They check in with me to see how everything is going. I'm so grateful to be a part of their extended family! And I love my Chi, Kalvin!

I wasn't really looking for another furbaby. But I came across your facebook page. And just couldnt resist. I applied for one of the chihuahuas. But he was adopted to another family. I was just a little sad. But then there she was. Journey AKA Farah. Oh she was so stinking cute. So I thought... Should I apply again for this one? So I did. I got "the phone call" Lots of questions. And rightfully so. Wouldnt have wanted it any other way. Tamie was so nice. So I waited. And then. I get another phone call. I was able to adopt Journey. I was so happy. She has been a blessing. We love her so much. And the adoption transition went awesome. Not having to worry if she had any kind of illness was a BIG plus. This Chihuahua rescue makes sure they are completely healthy before being adopted. Here is a photo of our sweet Journey.

My sister fosters through this rescue and I always watched online for a dog. When Lolly showed up I told my sister about her and she went over and got her from her foster mom. My sister flew her up to Minnesota, where she currently lives with her brother Monkey. I could have asked for a better sister for him. They are inserperable and love each other so much! Thank you so much for saving her and all the lives that you have!

Everything you could hope for in a rescue organization. Caring, loving, professional, proving excellent medical care and forever homes for the most euthanized breed of dog, and staffed entirely by volunteers. I don't remember how I found out about TXCR, but have followed them on Facebook for some time. When 2 little Chiweenies were posted, both with birth defects to their front legs, I commented "I would love to take them but I live in Kentucky". "We transport" said the Director. I am now the exhausted owner of 2- 5 month old Chiweenies who have taken over my house, my heart, and my pack. I will highly recommend you consider adopting one of the sweet Cheeps that have been rescued and cared for by this wonderful organization. And remember, you can't have just one Chihuahua. They're small, so you need 2 or 3 of them~ Terry Baker
