Ellie May came to us with no home of her own. She is a perfect fit to our family. The Chihuahua Rescue were all so helpful and kind. We could not imagine our life without her. Thank you team Canada/Texas Rescue for bringing us together....Lori & Family.
TCR is an amazing organization. I originally intended to just foster Buster but I fell I love with him and adopted him almost 2 years ago. I could not be happier with my decision to keep my boy. He is a wonderful little guy who lifts my spirits every day. Thank you TCR! You do a fantastic service for these little ones!
Our family was looking for a playmate for our one chihuahua - Ref. When we met Mayweather and McGregor who are brothers, we just couldn’t take one! So glad we took them both! We changed their names...as much as we loved their first given names. We have our team - Ref, Coach aka Mayweather and Player aka McGregor. Thank you!!
My husband and I have been looking to adopt a rescued small breed for months. We saw the Texas Chihuahua Group had been bringing dogs to Canada and were excited to have an opportunity to possibly bring a dog to Richmond Hill, Ontario from Texas. Unfortunately the woman I dealt with who said she was in charge of "GTA adoptions" was not very friendly and quite rude on the phone and in her emails. She kept "forgetting" and "misplacing" information that I had already provided to her. It took so long for her to complete my "reference checks" that the dog we had our heart set on was adopted to someone else and she did not seem very apologetic. She did tell me was that this was not her "real" job and she and her husband were just volunteers. Her attitude stunk! The Texas people were very friendly by email and phone, but the Canadian person for the GTA area was rude, unhelpful and gave the impression I was inconveniencing her by asking questions. I was also informed that I was too old to adopt a puppy which I thought was quite rude as to me, she was implying I would die and leave the puppy behind. Of course I would ensure there was a home for our dog with a family member or friendddd if something should happen to my husband and I down the road. What a disappointment. A few months ago we found a sweet pair of young dogs at "The Dog Sanctuary". They had to stay together and we were happy to take them both. "The Dog Sanctuary" treated us like we were angels saving these 2 lovely dogs and did not even ask us how old we were! They processed our application quickly and treated us with the utmost respect the entire process. Our experience was so positive we are now monthly Donors to "The Dog Sanctuary". Ontario has lots of great rescue groups who have their priorities right! I inquired about potentially becoming a monthly donor but the Canadian branch is not a registered charity and can NOT give out tax receipts. Hopefully Texas Chihuahua-Canada smartens up and gets it right but if they don't, there are many alternatives to find your next dog like The Dog Sanctuary!
Texas Chihuahua Rescue has been an absolutely amazing experience! I am so blessed everyday that I got my little girl Sky! TXCR cares about all of there animals tremendously and does a long a thorough check to make sure the animals are paired with the right house. My little girl Sky is deaf so the process was a bit longer than usual which I appreciated a lot. It shows how much the organization truly cares for each pet. Sky had some anxiety before I got her but she is doing absolutely amazing at home with her pug brother Teddy! She is the happiest, most playful and beautiful little girl! Thank you so much TXCR! Every animal deserves love, a home and a new start! Would highly recommend
I cant say enough about the incredible work that they do at Texas Chihuahua Rescue! From the initial application to the final transport of your dog; they are spectacular. You can really tell how they care about the animal and also care for the proper pairing of them with their new owners. I cant recommend enough how wonderful an experience this was, even adopting from NJ!! The hard work that they all put in shows!
We recently adopted Oscar AKA Houston. He has been a bright light that has shown on our family in an unbelievable way. He brightens our day everyday. Our other dog Daisy love's playing with him and enjoys having another dog in the house. Adopting Oscar has been a wonderful experience. He's an easy going sweetheart.
I recently adopted two senior chihuahuas from Texas Chihuahua Rescue.
What I love about them is that they are very thorough in their application, they tell truths about the dogs and their personalities. They answer any and all questions and they follow-up on their adopted dogs.
I didn’t think that I was ready to adopt so soon after my Rottweiler suddenly passed in August but after seeing some of TXCR’s dogs on Facebook, I just had to adopt a couple of them.
Thank you to Texas Chihuahua Rescue for taking such good care of these beautiful dogs that have no voice. Thank you for giving them a chance to be loved.

Adopting a rescue dog takes a great deal of thought. My husband and I had decided that we didn't want another dog after the passing of our beloved Cocker Spaniel. It had been 3 years by the time Coco (named April by the rescue) found me. She had come to Canada for a hopeful adoption and was fostered in my community when her and I met. She was SO cute, I couldn't resist and after taking her home to meet my husband, within 2 days, she was ours and she had found her furever home. Coco had hit the jackpot you could say....we lived in Ontario for 6 months and wintered 6 months in Florida. She would never have to see snow! Life was good and after 9 months, upon having a blood test for her ongoing heartworm meds, she came up positive for heartworm. This was devastating news to us and after speaking with the Texas Chihuahua Rescue representative, they offered to fly her back to Texas to give her the heartworm treatment. Coco spent 10 weeks in Texas and seemed to do ok with her treatment. She came home but upon her return, she just didn't seem right and the folks at Texas Chihuahua Rescue agreed. Coco, very quickly became ill. She starte walking criss crossed, wobbling...signs of ataxia. We took her to a chiropractor and that helped a little we thought. Texas Chihuahua Rescue asked us to get an MRI and helped us with it, along with any other medical bills for hospital stays, etc. The MRI showed us she had Inflammation on the Brain and the protocol would be a steroid medication. Day by day, Coco was feeling better....it has been 4 weeks and she is almost 90% of her old self. She will continue the meds till they tell us to stop and we hope that she will continue to feel well and ward off the neurological problems. There were times on this journey that we were ready to give up...times that we thought she would not make it through, but with the help and loving support from Texas Chihuahua Rescue, we have our little girl back. She is still here for us to love and cuddle because sometimes it is about loving someone else besides yourself. Coco has completed our family and softened our hearts and we can't imagine life without her. This organization is top notch and I can't say enough wonderful things about it and the people that work for the rescue...working hard everyday to save the life's of these little ones. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!
Texas Chihuahua Rescue comprises of many rescuers, volunteers, transporters in Texas and in Hamilton/Toronto, Canada area, like they say "it takes a village to raise a dog". Adopted Alfalfa a little Chihuahua mix who has medical issues. Their response to my questions and application was less than 24 hrs. We spoke , they answered all my questions and many more to ensure that Alfalfa would be a great addition to my family. I completely understand Alfalfa's medical issues when I adopted him and accept him as he is. Alfalfa is a very happy boy who loves to dance and make me laugh. He was transported to Hamilton, Ontario and they found him a fabulous foster until I was able to pick him up and bring him home in Alberta. A fabulous rescue who works hard at saving many lives and finding them the perfect home for their new second chances at life.
I would like to thank everyone involved in saving these wonderful babies. We've been looking for a long time for a rescue chihuahua in Ontario with no luck. I stumbled upon your Facebook page and I'm so grateful that I did. We adopted Sweet Pea who is now knowen as Lola. She's so sweet and adorable and a wonderful addition to our family. The adoption process was easy and seem less. I would highly recommend this rescue team to anyone. Thank you again for entrusting us with this precious baby. We promise to take care of her and love her unconditional. Such a rewarding feeling to save a life and get nothing but love and trust in return.
We adopted Elara now Gemma from Texas Chihuahua Rescue. She is a living doll. Our rescue boy Jax is totally in love with his new sister. The process was slick right up to delivery. The transport was so nice and our dog came off as clean as if they had given her a bath ❤️ Will def adopt again from them when it's time for another little. Thank you Texas Chihuahua Rescue. We are in love with Gemma
I've been following Texas Chihuahua Rescue for some time now on Facebook. I already am the proud parent of Chloe, my long haired chihuahua. I was looking to rescue another long haired chihuahua and come across Elvis on their website. He was a Hurricane Harvey surrender and I was drawn to him. I filled out an application immediately and spoke with Catherine very soon after. Elvis officially became part of our family and we love him. I feel awful that his previous owner had to give him up and would like her to have peace knowing we will love him for the rest of his life. Texas Chihuahua Rescue is a wonderful organization'!

When I found "Cami" at ACS she was almost completely bald, ears completely infected, and her nails looked like they had never been cut. She was actually crying huge tears. I sat with her for hours before I checked my Facebook and saw the rescue by chance. I contacted them through email and Tammie answered right away. They were on the way! A few weeks later I picked her up. She overcame her skin issues, double ear infections, tooth surgery (all covered by TCR) and slowly but surely came out of her shell. She has an actual smile on her face daily and we adore it! She won our hearts and the hearts of her new brother and sisters. Every time we thought about taking her to an adoption event she'd hit a new milestone and prove she belonged here. Now named Bella Star she's adjusted perfectly. She potty trained right away, and helped her shy sister break out of her shell. She also loved cats so the transition was seamless. We're over the moon with our little Star. We couldn't imagine a life without her. She was definitely the missing piece in our home. Thank you Texas Chihuahua Rescue we can't say enough good things about you all and the entire process. Our baby is now in her forever home.
Texas Chihuahua Rescue is a fantastic organization. If it wasn't for them, I would not have met my precious long-haired chihuahua "Picasso." They matched me with a dog that would be happy living in an apartment on the 12th floor. Everyone who meets my little guy in the elevator or the dog park loves him. But, they don't love him as much a I do! He adds so much happiness to my life. He is a very gentle, sweet doggie who loves to cuddle. Deciding to rescue this precious dog was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thanks Texas Chihuahua Rescue!
I saw my Korva through Adopt A Pet. I fell in love with her instantly. Texas Chihuahua Rescue responded to my application quickly. They gave an accurate description of her personality and the qualities of a home that would make for a good fit for her. I really liked that they sent videos so I could see her in action and the video helped to win over my husband. Initially he was uncertain about adopting a pet he hadn't met in person. As you can see in the photo insert he is totally in love with her just like me. Tammi Parker and all of the team were supportive and loving. I thought the pick up process was fun and exciting. I am so HAPPY KORVA is in my life. This is a great organization. Keep up the good work!
We wanted to add to our fur baby family and found TCR on Facebook. We submitted our application and waited to find our perfect little Jac. It was love at first sight!
Thank you TCR for doing what you do for these precious little dogs. And Thank You for this little angel Jac ❤❤❤
What an amazing experience! We are just outside of Toronto Canada and had never adopted a pet before. Everyone made this experience so easy, while still being excited for us! After we adoted and were waiting for our dog to arrive, we were sent pictures of how she was doing! Meeting the transport truck in Buffalo was a sinch and crossing the border was no problem at all!!!! I was shocked at how truly easy the whole expreince was. I highly recommend Texas Chihuahua Rescue!!
On Saturday Aug. 26th our family was blessed with our sweet little Royal. Thank you Texas Chihuahua Rescue for bringing this sweet girl into our lives. The process to adopt Royal went smoothly for us and I could tell by the communication with Cyndy..Texas Chihuahua Canada that this foundation cared deeply for their dogs and placing them in good homes. When I went on the Texas Chihuahua Rescue site, scrolled down and saw Royal, it was love at first site and the process to adopt her began. She is a sweet, cuddly little bundle of joy and we will treasure her always. I would highly recommended Texas Chihuahua Rescue to anyone looking to adopt a rescue.
