Donate to our Emergency Fund

There are many Chihuahuas that come into rescue with medical needs far beyond just a normal vet exam, vaccinations, and spay or neuter. Issues that require more than the basic vetting would be mouth, eye, ear, nose, or throat conditions, including cherry-eye repair, which is a common ailment of puppy mill survivors. Other conditions that we treat are coccidia, tape worms, and other parasites, *heartworm and erhliccia positive dogs, parvo infected dogs, dental issues, blood disorders, surgical procedures, and knee surgeries. Often these are surgeries that are necessary in order for the dog to live an active, pain-free life. By donating to the Emergency Fund, you are helping "Because of You" help the Chihuahuas live a life worth living, rather than a life of pain.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, and join our rescue wagon...click on the picture below. The Chihuahuas thank you!

BOYCR get's in heartworm positive Chihuahuas as often as heartworm negative Chihuahuas. Heartworms can be a deadly disease and can potentially lead to a very slow and very painful death. However, if treated the dog can lead a full, happy and pain-free life. Heartworm treatment is very expensive and great care must be taken during treatments to ensure the dog does not perish. Please help us help the Chihuahuas and make your tax-deductable donation today!

Sponsor a Chihuahua



Want to help a Chihuahua in need, but do not have the extra time or space to devote to another furry family member?
Then "Sponsoring" is for you!



What is a Sponsor?
A Sponsor is a kind-hearted person that wants to help save Chihuahuas in need.

What must be done in order to become a Sponsor?


  1. Look over all the Chihuahua bios on our Sanctuary Residents Page and see which one you would like to sponsor.
  2. Click on the "Sponsor" button, located on the Sanctuary Residents Page. Enter the amount you would like to donate for the Chihuahuas care and note which Chi you are sponsoring.
  3. Sit back and let that humble feeling sink in....yep, you just did a great thing! A pat on the back is well deserved!

Sponsor's help provide the "extras" for their sponsored Chihuahua. Sponsor donations help to provide special treats, blankets, and beds for their sponsored Chihuahua.

There are times when a Chihuahua requires more vet care than the typical rescued Chihuahua, sponsoring helps ensure that care is received. Sponsors help to provide the extra special care that all Chihuahua dogs deserve!

    Get Creative!

    Some girls in Stroud, OK spent their weekend raising money for the chihuahuas! Can you believe they raised an amazing $40.00 selling Lemonade and Cookies?

    Posh Pooch Designs often runs specials on items, and gives all the proceeds to the chihuahuas

    Zoie the Chihuahua gave $1.00 to the chihuahuas for every new fan on her facebook page during one week. She raised $355.00!!!!

     Harley the Chihuahua had all of his fans send $1 in a card to him for his adoption birthday. He raised thousands for our rescue!
