Chihuahua Rescue Truckee Meadows, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in the northern Nevada area.  We help small dogs find forever homes.  While in our foster care we get them medical care, vaccinations, spay/neuter and more.  We have outstanding medical bills and can always use any donation you may offer.  Sadly, Chihuahuas are the number two breed euthanized in the western United States' shelters.  Education is a piece of the problem - people simply believe because they are small - they are not euthanized, but that is incorrect. We rescue Chihuahuas and other small dogs from euthanasia.  We often take special needs dogs, help those senior dogs that would die in the shelter and find a foster home and work with some dogs with behavior issues, rehabilitate the dog and find great homes.  

Often these tiny but mighty dogs may have been saved from an abusive or neglectful home and are often, thrown away because the owner no longer wants to keep them.  We do help those dogs that can no longer be cared for by the owner or the owner is deceased.

It is a myth that these rescued Chihuahuas are aggressive and not suitable for family life.  Many dogs end up in rescue because their owners find them difficult to manage once they turn from puppy to adolescent.  Often, it is not the fault of the dogs but it is simply the owner has not helped to teach the adolescent dog what is acceptable behavior.  Additionally and sadly if the Chihuahua wasn't introduced to various situations, places, people, dogs and more...so now the small mighty Chihuahua is afraid of so many things. Having a dog takes commitment in time and energy. These rescued Chihuahuas turn into wonderful pets if given the chance to shine.

Many rescue dogs are rehomed quickly, however some need special help to overcome fears, anxieties or some trauma and remain in foster care for months or even years. These tiny but mighty Chihuahuas with Chihuahua Rescue of Truckee Meadows, Reno are looking for special people who want to help this delightful breed.  Chihuahua Rescue of Truckee Meadows, Reno wants to help the special little dog find their dreams...a home they can call their own, free from stress, fully enjoyed and loved for the remainder of their lives.
