YCRAA objectives:

  • Rehabilitate and place homeless Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in homes that meet the needs of each dog.
  • Promote responsible pet guardianship through education, resulting in a rewarding experience and relationship
    • How to choose the right dog.
    • Care for it.
    • The importance of proper socialization.
  • Build good working relationships with veterinary professionals, other reputable animal rescue associations and dog training organizations.
  • Ensure, to the best of our ability, that every dog placed will never be homeless again.

Each home is carefully screened before placement.

Each dog is evaluated for temperament, has a vet exam, is up to date on all shots, and receives whatever other vet care is needed.

Adult dogs are spayed or neutered before adoption.
