About Us

Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue, Inc., is a volunteer-based, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to the rescue and re-homing of Chihuahuas and other small breed dogs weighing less than 15 pounds when fully grown.

Most of the dogs we save are removed from shelters, others have been abused and abandoned, while some are surrendered to us by their owners. We also teach the public how to be responsible dog owners and stress to them the importance of spaying and neutering their family pets.

We were founded in October 2005 with offices located in Colorado Springs, CO, by President, Sue Fisher and Vice President, Sharon Henson. One of our guiding principles is to support other rescue groups, whether it’s helping them get started, connecting them with shelter managers or assisting them with transports. A vital part of our own rescue vision is a Colorado free from unnecessary euthanasia, and where all adoptable dogs are found fur-ever homes.

With no physical facility, we rely on a network of experienced, temporary foster homes throughout the state. All foster dogs receive the medical attention they need while they’re nourished, nurtured and socialized to prepare them for their ultimate destination: permanent, loving homes.
