Sprite's Story...
Hi there...my name is Sprite!!!! I was born in January 2011 and I am a chihuahua/terrier mix male. My three sisters have already found their forever homes...now it is my turn!!! I weigh about 10 lbs and I love to run and play with my foster brothers. But, if you want to chill out, I will keep you company sitting right next to you. I know how to use a doggy door but if foster mom goes out and closes the door I will patiently wait to go potty outside when she gets home. I have been told that I am quite a handsome boy (foster mom says that a LOT, too!!), do you think so too? I am shy with new pets and people at first (would do best with older kids) but will warm up to you if you give me a little time. I would love to find my forever home, can I come home with you?

About AZ Chihuahua Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

AZ Chihuahua Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization. Our network consists of experienced rescue people who were previously doing rescue independently and realize the benefits of joining together and combining resources.

We believe there is a home for every dog we foster. Some just take a little longer to find. Most dogs spend at least a short time in foster care so we can evaluate their behaviors in a home setting. We can give potential adopters information on how the dog may interact with cats, children, men, women, other dogs, and so on. These are vital components to a good match. We also try to improve potty training skills if they are not already house trained. Our foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our dogs for life in a world where fear and starvation are non-existent.

Our Purpose

To rescue, rehabilitate and place chihuahuas into stable, loving homes

To educate the public about the responsibilities of chihuahua ownership in an attempt to alleviate the problem of unwanted pets

To build public awareness about the human-animal bond and its benefits to society

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Policy and Fees

ADOPTION POLICY

Our Adoption Policy at AZCR requires all potential adopters to complete an application and interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our dogs. AZCR will determine the best home for each dog based on the application process and interview. The application and/or interview does not guarantee an approval. It also does not guarantee the adoption of a particular dog you may be interested in. AZCR may recommend a different dog more suitable to your household. AZCR is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the dog based on our policies and standards.

ADOPTION FEES

Why do you charge to adopt a rescue
dog?

When AZ Chihuahua Rescue (AZCR) takes in a dog, we incur some veterinary costs. Sometimes, the cost is minimal. However, there are several dogs we have taken in with significant medical needs. In some cases, we may take in more money on one dog which will help offset the higher medical expenses on another dog. (See our
"featured chihuahua" link to read about one of our medical needs dogs.) Reality is that in many cases, without additional donations from the public and our volunteers, we still would not be able to cover some of the medical expenses AZCR has incurred.
