CRT is a national foster-based rescue group that places Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes.  Our purpose is to extend public education and awareness regarding abuse and neglect.  In 2010, CRT placed several hundred Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in approved homes.  CRT requires an application, vet check, reference check and home visit for each adopter.  

CRT does not warehouse dogs in a shelter.  As in most rescue groups, our dogs are cared for in healthy, safe, loving foster home environments.  CRT foster parents work very hard to be sure that their foster dog feels safe and loved while working on housetraining, crate training, socialization, etc.  All our dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, fecal tested, microchipped, on heartworm preventative and have all other veterinary needs taken care of (such as heartworm treatment, dentals, luxating patellas, etc.)  CRT is known, and has always been known, for taking the injured, infirm and elderly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes.  Please consider the adoption of one of these dogs as well.  Seniors and special needs dogs make great pets too!  

For more information about our adoption process, please go to our adoption process page.   To view our national list of available dogs, go to "Dogs Available For Adoption" or use the menu to the left.  For more history on CRT, please visit here.
