NZCR relies entirely on donations in order to help save the lives of Chihuahuas and Chihuahua crosses throughout New Zealand
WHO WE ARE:
New Zealand Chihuahua Rescue ("NZCR") is a registered charitable trust, run by volunteers.
We rely entirely upon donations and fundraising to rescue chihuahuas (and chihuahua crosses, together with other small breeds) from situations of neglect and abuse. We also take in dogs that are surrendered to the Trust, unclaimed at the Pound, or otherwise requiring a new home.

- Transport dogs in need of rescue/re-homing from their locations to our base in Christchurch, or to knowledgeable foster carers throughout New Zealand.
- Provide necessary medical care for dogs in the care of the Trust.
- Provide vaccinations, flea and worming treatments to dogs in the care of the Trust.
