Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Power of Chi is an Oakland, CA dog rescue focusing on fostering and finding permanent homes for Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes.

About Our Rescue Group:

Power of Chi is a volunteer based foster rescue that was formed by Oakland Animal Services volunteers after seeing countless Chihuahuas overlooked simply because of the number of Chi's in CA shelters. In an effort to help these awesome little dogs become more adoptable, Power of Chi pulls those that need a little extra attention and focus to help them prepare for a happy life in forever homes of their own.

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.
