Our story

Dizzy was a little 15 year old Chihuahua who was dumped and abandoned in a supermarket car park and left to fend for himself. He was in an appallingly poor condition, dirty and unkempt, unable to walk or see and with infected eyes and mouth, he would not have survived alone.

We were privileged to have given him a safe and happy home and showered him with love and affection before he very sadly died on 26th July 2016, leaving a huge gap in our lives.

Dizzy Chihuahua Rescue was set up in Dizzy’s memory, to keep this very special little dog’s name alive and to help little Chihuahua’s in need.

How to help..

Pet rescue is very expensive and we do not receive any government funding. We rely on funds and donations to help cover the costs of vaccinations, dental treatment, neutering and spaying, transportation and other veterinarian fee’s for Chihuahua’s who come into our care.

We will only rehome a dog once it has been fully assessed and veterinary checked. We endeavour to send our dogs to their new homes, well balanced, rehabilitated and healthy.

Sadly, this is not always possible and occasionally we have dogs with ongoing medical conditions.

Thanks to our supporters, we are able to fund these dog’s vet and medication fees for the rest of their lives. These dogs remain Dizzy Rescue dogs but are cared for by our DCR Angels.

Where are you based? Do you rehome anywhere in the UK? We are based in London, but have DCR Foster Angels in different areas within England. We only rehome in England.

Is there a fee or payment to rehome a Dizzy Chihuahua? There is a non refundable donation of £300.00 per Chihuahua. The donation doesn’t buy the Chihuahua.  As we are a non profit organisation, the donation goes towards transportation and ongoing expenses  for all dogs in our care, veterinarian fee’s for spaying, neutering,  vaccinations, microchipping, dentals and any other medical conditions and needs.  We personally are not paid for the time and effort that we put into the rescue, we do this voluntarily for the good of the rescue and to improve the lives of Chihuahua’s in need.

I don’t have any time to care for a Chihuahua myself but I want to help?  You can help in many ways, make a one off donation, sponsor a pet, send in a raffle prize. We appreciate every effort made no matter how small. Every penny goes to the little Chihuahuas and every penny is important!

Can I apply to rehome a pet if I have children? As a rule, we do not rehome to households with children under the age of 10. That being said, each dog is different. Some dogs have lived with children and will be fine, others may not. We assess each situation and dog individually. Please make sure you fill in the application form fully so that we may do this.

Can I apply to rehome a pet if i live in a flat? We assess each situation and dog individually. Chihuahuas are great dogs for people with small homes. As long as you can exercise and walk them daily and offer them a rich and fun environment inside the flat, we are happy to rehome.

I already own another dog, can I apply to rehome a rescue dog from Dizzy Chihuahua? We assess each situation and other dogs in the home individually. Many dogs enjoy the company of others and a big part of the assessments with our dogs is to determine whether we feel they would like to live in a home with another dog or on their own.

Are there any other restrictions to rehoming a dog? We do not rehome our little Chihuahua’s with any other unsprayed or unneutered dogs or cats.

I need help with vet bills, can you help? We are currently a very small group with very limited funds. We hope to do so in the future but at the moment, we are unable to offer this kind of help.

I only want to rehome a Chihuahua of a certain age / sex / colour? Can I choose?  Because of the nature of animal rescue, we cannot predict what animals which may come to us looking for new forever homes. We will take into consideration your requests but our priority is the happiness and welfare of each dog.

What happens if I don’t get along my rehome dog or if we have problems? Dizzy Chihuahua rescue will always take an animal back if the re-home is unsuccessful. In fact it is one of the conditions of rehoming a Dizzy rescue dog. We do not allow the ‘selling on’ of our pets.

What is the home check for? We carry out home checks to make sure your home is suitable for one of our re-home dogs to be safe and secure. We will advise you if we think changes need to be made to satisfy the requirements. Once these changes are made, we will be happy to place an animal with you.

Can I leave my animal with you when I go on holiday? No we are not a kennels or pet boarding facility. We do know a number of boarding facilities around the country that are very good and are happy to provide you with details.

I would like to foster animals for you. How do I apply?  Please fill in our foster application form.  Once we have had a chat and carried out a home check, we will discuss with you the fostering process. We are always looking for good foster homes.
