Our Mission

The BC Chihuahua Rescue (BCCR) is a Canadian charitable organization (non-profit) rescuing Chihuahuas in British Columbia, Canada. The BCCR was established in 2001 and was formerly known as the West Coast Chihuahua Rescue.

The BCCR takes Chihuahuas that are no longer wanted or can no longer be cared for and finds them loving, safe, forever homes. We also provide foster care and/or a safe haven for an emotionally troubled dog. Our main focus are dogs is BC, but we will help a dog from anywhere.

By educating the public, we pledge to stop puppy mills, put an end to pet store animal sales and end the abuse of these special animals. We also strive to stop irresponsible breeding strictly for-profit without regard for health and temperament.

How you can help - Volunteer!

Whether you have a little spare time to do some volunteer work or have a place in your home to provide temporary foster care for one of our Chihuahua rescues, we would love to have you aboard!  There are so many ways you can help make a difference and, hey, maybe make a few friends along the way!

Whether it's fostering, transporting, putting up posters or handing out flyers, or getting involved in our fundraising efforts, we welcome your help. The rewards for helping are many, the joy of knowing you helped give a new life to a needy dog is the most awesome feeling you'll ever have! Together, we can make a difference!

Would you like to help, but do not have the time to volunteer or provide a home for a homeless Chihuahua?  Please donate what you can.  We operate solely on donations with 100% of our funds going to assist in the care and placement of our dogs.

Donations are eligible for acknowledgement with an official charity receipt for tax purposes. Your receipt will be emailed to you within 48 hours of receiving your donation.

— Edward Hoagland

"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole."

— Roger Caras

"Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished."

— Dean Koontz
