Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
River City Chihuahua Rescue is a non-profit organization in the state of Missouri with 501(c)3 status granted by the IRS. We have no paid employees. We are a local, internet-based organization dedicated to the rescue, medical care and adoption of stray and homeless small breed dogs in need. We help control the growing overpopulation by spaying and neutering all dogs in our care. We provide all necessary veterinary treatment and place them in foster homes until they are adopted into forever homes. Whenever possible, RCCR also raises public awareness regarding the abuse and neglect of small breed dogs as well as overpopulation caused by not spaying and neutering.
We're back! As promised, RCCR is back and ready to get back to what we love - doing rescue! Remember that we have a Facebook group page and we love, love, love updates! Thanks to the internet, we can all stay in touch so easily. Thank you for supporting our mission.
If you live near or are
willing to come to the St. Louis
area, we can usually make arrangements for you to
meet dogs between adoption events. We will need
to have an application in hand before a meeting takes
place. We check our email several times a day!
This will take you to our adoption application. Please copy, paste, complete and submit to Rivercityrescue@gmail.com
If you have trouble accessing our application via google docs, please send an email to our application email address (email@example.com) and you will get an automated response containing our application. Please return it to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as soon as possible.
Let us know that you saw this dog on 1-800-Save-A-Pet.com!!
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
