Chihuahua Rescue Indiana is an all volunteer not for profit, (501c3 pending) dedicated to the rescue, transport and safe keeping of the chihuahua and chihuahua mix pet in need. As Executive Director of this organization I say that we will take any pet in need under a certain weight , IF the need is urgent and and there is space available. Keep in mind that Chihuahuas are the 2nd most surrendered and euthanized breed in the U.S., exceeded by the American Pitbull Terrier. The APBT is another breed overbred, oversold and misunderstood just as the chihuahua is. 

We urge community members to be proactive, spay and neuter, stand up for a pet in need and ADOPT don't SHOP! Thousands of healthy animals are euthanized in shelters each year in this state alone, Millions in the USA, due to irresponsible breeding.

IF you are in search of a PureBreed, PLEASE check our Breed Rescue Organizations, or your local Animal Control, for that pet prior to going to a breeder. And if you do go to a breeder do so with the guidance of the AKC,, and local BREED CLubs that can recommend those who breed for the LOVE of the BREED and not for the money that a litter can generate

Just got back from a short vacation and catching up on voluminous e-mails!!! Gosh, JUST one?!
I totally loved the story of the Soldier and his son, but there are SO many! I have a lovely couple that adopted one of the 14 that CRU rescued from Kentucky, a horder situation, and all of the little chihuahuas were adorable, But all were in need of vetting, which they got. But there was one VERY special little gal that ended up in the home of a Petsmart employee, named Jennifer Sutherland. SHe since has adopted another little gal that came to me through Petsmart, as an owner surrender. That little gal needed veterinary care that the current owner was unable to provide. So we got 2 very special and deserving little chihuahuas into a loving home. Jennifer is a terrific spokesperson for the care and needs of chihuahuas. ANd she would probably LOVe to talk with you! I would love to share her story as well.
The story of the National Guardsman is terrific, but I would need to see if they are willing to share. YOu may call me if you would like. 317-513-8010. Thanks Patty!
