About Us

Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc. a Colorado corporation recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization is committed and devoted to the rescue and home placement of Chihuahuas and small dogs that have been abused, neglected, abandoned and/or surrendered by their owners. We educate the public to become responsible dog owners and spay and neuter their dogs. Our vision is to see that the unnecessary euthanasia in Colorado ends, and that all adoptable dogs will find their forever homes.

October 2005 was the start of Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc. Sue Fisher, President and Sharon Henson, Vice President formed the organization with the policy that we would not be like most rescue groups and be breed specific and only rescue purebreds, but this organization would rescue Chihuahua mixes and other small breed mixes and purebreds. We felt that all small breed dogs deserve a second chance at life, no matter what breed or mix as long as they are less than 15 pounds full grown.

Since we are not a shelter, we do not have a facility for you to come visit all our little ones. They are all in foster homes throughout the state of Colorado. Our little ones are cared for in foster homes where they are part of the family, and they can be taught that life will now be better for them. Get them over the fears that they have and also get them healthy again. Foster homes are the backbone of this organization, without them, we would not be able to rescue the little ones that we have.

We depend totally on volunteers. Everyone involved with Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc is a volunteer, who has opened up their homes and hearts to save a life. Everyone is dedicated to the little ones that we rescue, and we do everything within our power to give these wonderful furry friends a second chance at life.
