Well, that’s what I am here to do.

Chihuahua Rescue & Transport (CRT) 

Chihuahua Rescue & Transport (CRT) is a foster-based rescue group dedicated to placing Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in forever homes. They have managed to do so with thousands of dogs since inception in 1996.

They serve many states, including Ohio in the Midwest region.



WolfSpirits Rescue

Based in Akron Ohio, WolfSpirits Rescue is a small, non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing toy breed dogs.

While not dedicated to chihuahuas specifically, they have been known to have these available for adoption. They are worth contacting and checking in with.

Located out of Wapakoneta, the Auglaize County Humane Society is another non-breed specific rescue that routinely has chihuahuas up for adoption.
