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!

We had the best adoption process and we are happy with our new addition. He has four human sisters to spoil him and it is so exciting to see him develop his little personality as he settles in. Texas Chihuahua Rescue made everything so easy, and matched our family up perfectly with little Indy. All of his paperwork was organized and up to date and made our first vet visit easy! Highly recommend this rescue!

I just want to say thank you so much for all you do. My little Acadia is everything and more than i expected . She is a real sweetheart. Not much of a barker, loves to give lots of kisses, and she knows when to go potty. She is friendly to everyone. She loves her walks.
I would definetly recommend this rescue , they love these little animals and take so much care for them. I can't say enough. Anyone wanting to adopt please do. Thank you all, for caring for these beautiful animals. If it wasn't for you i don;t know where little Acadia would be.

Very impressed with Texas Chihuahua Rescue Inc., - from their first contact, the interview and explaining the process this charity bar none cares about animals. I was hesitant to use them as I'd NEVER heard of them, called PETSMART Charity to confirm they were legit and they confirmed. Texas Chihuahuha Rescue Inc - THEY WERE absolutely 100% the real thing, an organization that is passionate and caring about the animals they are helping. The description of the dogs is spot on, as a dog owner I can tell that the foster parents were wonderful socializing and training the dogs (as much as they could in a foster home). My little guy is very submissive which was perfect for my old French bulldog. He's healthy, has had initial heel training and is coming along so beautifully - he knows his new name and LOVES his big brother. Thank you Texas Rescue!! Keep on the wonderful work :)

This is a rescue that truly cares. They are well-organized, responsive and informative. A special shout-out to the Hamilton Ontario chapter. I'm sure they work tirelessly to make sure these little guys find their forever homes. My little Bee is the sweetest dog ever! She felt right at home instantly and loves her new big brother, snow and visits to Grandpa. I share my story with everyone.

Texas Chihuahua Rescue really know their Chih's and have their best interest to heart. I hope to help out our Canadian chapter this fall.

Thank you everyone at TCR!!! ♥

I adopted Arnold/Yuki when learned in Facebook that he was from a puppy mill and he has been in a kennel for more than 3 years. His condition was a disaster according with the picture taken at the time. I decided adopt him knowing a dog no socialized as a puppy is going to be very difficult to adapt to a normal life, and even when is being a challenge for my ordered life with two older pets, the life with my new baby has been very rewarding. I am very happy with my dog and he is learning quickly. Now he learned to be in and out through the dog door, enjoys walks in the park, eats and sleeps very well. He still has a lot of things to learn, but I am sure he is a happy dog. I am glad to be part of Texas Chihuahua Rescue.

TXCR Rock! They were amazing to deal with through the whole adoption process. Tons of communication to keep me in the loop on what was needed, next steps and how to be prepared. They do amazing work and you can tell they really care about their dogs and the families that are adopting. They were kind, patient and knowledgeable and I enjoyed my experience so much I'm keeping in touch with our coordinator and am considering becoming a volunteer with them.

Honestly, the only hard part was waiting for our new fur baby to arrive from Texas!

Thanks TXCR. You guys are awesome!

The adoption process was easy to follow and they were very quick to process the application. Communication and pictures were provided so you could watch your new family members final journey home. We adopted such a sweet little dog. She is very healthy and happy. Pick up day had so much positive energy, and there were tears of happiness. I am extremely happy and hope by recommending this rescue to other we can help save more lives.
