We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a Chihuahua with people who need to rehome their Chihuahua in the Brooklyn area.
What We Do
Direct rescue & adoption of pets, from one good home to another. Rehoming a Chihuahua keeps them out of shelters.

Chihuahuas Are Right at Home in Brooklyn!
The awe-inspiring Chihuahua makes up for what it lacks in size with personality. With majestic motions, this small dog walks into your life and steals your heart with its playful, loving attitude, and larger than life demeanor. Brooklyn, with its mixture of elegance and blue-collar mentality makes it the perfect place for such a wondrous creature as the Chihuahua.
Your favorite tiny dog descended from Mexico based Techichi. Techichi were small Toltec dogs originally bred for their abilities as loving companions. Today, this loving nature is why the Chihuahua is such a popular breed for adoption. Known for their small stature, these dogs will love you with hearts as big as Great Danes.
Chihuahuas have plenty of distinct breed characteristics. These small dogs are energetic, but they can usually get their needed exercise in a small space, making Brooklyn apartments the right fit for them! Intelligent and eager to please, Chihuahuas respond best to positively-enforced training practices.
There are plenty of cool, Chihuahua-friendly activities to be found in the borough of Brooklyn. First and foremost, since many Chihuahuas tend to commute in a bag, you can easily take your Chihuahua to the many dog-friendly stores in Brooklyn. For example, bring your leashed Chihuahua to Marisa Perry Atelier, a famous Brooklyn high-end jewelry store.
If you and your Chihuahua want to do something more physically demanding, take a trip to Prospect Park Dog Run, an off-leash dog park made specifically with small pups like the Chihuahua in mind. Your Chihuahua can run around and socialize with other dogs their size in this Brooklyn park.
There really are so many exciting things you and your Chihuahua can do in Brooklyn, so don’t hesitate to adopt a Chihuahua to bring home!
The best way to save a beloved Chihuahua, or any pet, is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.
Brooklyn Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
