So you want to foster!

Here at Chihuahua Rescue Australia, we are firm believers in foster care. We believe that the best way to find out what the Chihuahua is really like is in a home environment. All our Chihuahuas are temperament tested before they enter Chihuahua Rescue Australia and will be placed with a foster family who suits them best while they are waiting for their 'pawfect' match.

We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our foster carers if problems should ever arise. Our Chihuahua behaviorists, with over 35 years experience, will be on hand for any questions you may have in relation to training your Chihuahua.

We cover all vet costs for your foster dog in care. We can provide collars, leads, blankets, bedding or whatever else your house guest may require. All we ask from you is to provide food, water, cuddles and TLC to your foster dog.

If you are interested in becoming a foster carer for Chihuahua Rescue Australia, please send us an email at and we will send you an application. All successful applicants will be required to have a home check before a Chihuahua is placed with your family.
