There is a non-refundable donation of £350 per Chihuahua. The donation does not buy the Chihuahua the donation is for the purpose of ongoing medical expenses, transport, foster care and admin costs incurred by Chihuahua Rescue UK during the year. We are a non-profit organisation and not one of our representatives is paid, we are all volunteers.
The Chihuahuas that come into our care are placed in an approved foster home to be assessed and checked by a vet prior to finding their forever loving new home. We do not have kennels for our small dogs.
We usually have far more applicants than dogs available at any one time therefore please be patient as we match an available Chihuahua to the most suitable home for his or her needs from our approved waiting list, it is not a matter of first come first served. If a suitable Chihuahua becomes available which we feel would suit your situation and your requirements you will be contacted with details of that Chihuahua. We will contact you to make an appointment for a home check, prior to you being offered any Chihuahua for adoption or foster. A home check is not too intrusive!
We are available and willing to give help, give advice and guidance throughout the time you have your adopted Chihuahua from us at Chihuahua Rescue UK.
N.B…Please be kind enough to let us know if at any time you no longer wish to be on our waiting list.
