About Us

Information on who we are

Second Chance Chi Rescue and Pledging Club is a collaborative effort created by animal lovers who recognize that the highest percentage of dogs killed in shelters are Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes.

With love and hope for change, we join together to SAVE LIVES…one life at a time.



Our Organization

About Us and  how we work to achieve our goal:
We run our own rescue as well as a pledge club that works in conjunction with rescue groups who pull dogs from high kill shelters and shelter dogs who also are in need of medical attention.
Our club members make pledges and 100% of the funds raised are donated to rescues to pay for vetting and rescue of dogs in hi kill shelters. The lives we help to save go on to find forever homes and live the lives they so deserve to live.

Our Mission

We feel it is our responsibility to protect and improve the lives of abandoned, abused, homeless unhealthy and needy dogs in hi-kill shelters by rescuing, vetting and finding them great loving forever homes.

(Our mission is dedicated to)

1. Holding fundraisers and pledging for rescue and vetting of dogs in hi-kill shelters across the united states promoting their rescue and to fund the rescues activities.
2. Educating the general public and all others on the Chihuahua and other breeds.
3. Rescue and re-home Chihuahuas and other dogs that have been abandoned, neglected, abused and/or surrendered to kill shelters in the country, community, and surrounding area.
4. Ensure all our adoptable dogs are spayed/neutered micro chipped and vetted for health before leaving to their forever home. Encourage pet owners to spay/neuter their dogs.
5. Rescued dogs will stay in an approved foster home or with us until we find a forever home that is a good match for the dog. Each prospective adoption applicant will be interviewed by at least two volunteers and all references checked and home visits done.
6. To rescue and pledge on as many small breed dogs as our rescue capacity and funding will allow.
