Canadian Chihuahua Rescue and Transport consists of a network of volunteers across the country. They have Regional Coordinators in each Province and have volunteer and adoption applications coming in monthly.
Chihuahuas come into the care of CCRT in a variety of ways. Shelters and humane societies across Canada will contact them when they need help. Owners will surrender their dogs to them should they no longer be able to care for them. Finally, if someone knows of a Chihuahua facing death, abandonment, or abuse, they encourage that person to notify the CCRT Committee by posting a message to the CCRT internet mailing list or contacting one of the Area Co-Ordinators.
The mission of the CCRT is to:
- assist in finding homes for pets whose owners can no longer care for them,
- rescue, foster and provide necessary veterinary care for homeless, abandoned, neglected, abused or unwanted Chihuahuas
- match homeless chis with loving new adoptive homes which have been carefully screened by approved volunteers, and to provide follow-up support to new owners,
- ensure that all Chihuahuas placed through CCRT are microchipped, spayed or neutered and properly vaccinated,
- educate Chihuahua owners and the general public about the breed, its traits and temperament, the special needs and considerations in caring for Chihuahuas, and the necessity of spaying or neutering, vaccinating, and providing regular veterinary care.
Please note, the CCRT only rescues Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixed breed dogs.
