CCRT stands for Canadian Chihuahua Rescue and Transport, a network of volunteers working together to rescue, transport, foster and provide necessary veterinary care for homeless, abandoned, neglected, or abused Chihuahuas.
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.
If you have any questions, or wish to become a volunteer with the CCRT, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Some of our dogs are ready for adoption, some are in foster care and a few are in desperate need of special care.
If you are thinking of adopting a dog, we encourage you to visit our Dogs Ready for Adoption page to learn more about our special rescues.
