NZ Chihuahua Rescue Trust needs your help!

We are fundraising for much needed vet costs.


New Zealand Chihuahua Rescue Trust desperately needs your help with vet costs.

Our current bill for ONE MONTH is over $1800! :(

We are pretty resilient here at NZCR and understand living costs are high for everyone right now, so we don't like to beg for money often.

But we have had multiple new surrenders lately, some with very high medical needs.

Just to name a few:

Pip: Dental procedure, vaccination update, heart consultation and medication.

Amelia: Amelia has had not one, but TWO patella surgeries in recent months.

Delilah: Extensive dental procedure.

Bella: Dental procedure.

Tilly: Tilly had terrible flea dermatitis, she requires a medicated bath daily and a special diet.

All dogs that come into care are also flead and wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, and spayed or neutered, which soon adds up!

We don't want to have to turn dogs away, but we really need to generate some fees for vets costs or we may have to :(

Any small amount is hugely appreciated by the trustees and the dogs alike! :)

About us

New Zealand Chihuahua Rescue ("NZCR") is a registered Charitable Trust (CC55119) founded in 2017 after a need for a rescue dedicated specifically to the re-homing of Chihuahuas (and Chihuahua crosses) was identified.

Use of funds

Funds will be used for vet care for the dogs in the New Zealand Chihuahua Rescue Trust's care.

any surplus will be used for the same, as our vet bills are an ongoing cost.
