Interested in Adoption?

There are times when Chihuahuas need to be re-homed, and if you would like to offer a new home to such a dog then in the first instance you should write to the Secretary of the British Chihuahua Club Rescue Association (BCCRA), at the address below, enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope and requesting a 'Rescue Adoption Registration Form'. To save time and postage you may wish to download a copy of the form to print out and complete. Please note that we can only consider rehoming dogs within mainland Britain.

To download a copy of the Adoption Registration Form (1MB PDF) please click here. The completed form should be returned to the address above. As postage costs come out of Rescue funds, we do not acknowledge receipt of forms by mail unless a stamped self-addressed envelope is enclosed.

Once filled in and returned, the adoption form is filed, awaiting a suitable dog. The list is not operated on a 'first come, first served' basis, but rather concentrates on matching the dog to a home most suitable for its requirements, for instance some dogs love the hustle and bustle of a family, whilst others prefer a home on a one to one basis. Once a dog becomes available, the most suitable sounding home is contacted and a home-check is carried out by a member of the Club, living in the vicinity and, if all is satisfactory, the dog is received and an adoption form to be completed in duplicate, one copy for the new adoptive owner and one for the Rescue File. In some cases, where there is nobody available to do a home check immediately, we may take a reference from the prospective home's vet and perform a follow-up visit later (This only happens occasionally).

We do not sell dogs for a specific amount of money, but a voluntary donation is suggested. Elderly dogs are checked by a vet first and if there is ongoing medication at the time of adoption, we may offer to help with this, depending upon the circumstances of the new adoptive home.
