    Last month we found out that Chihuahua Rescue did a photo shoot with Santa Claus during the holiday season. We asked if they would send us photos from that shoot… below is a link to their photos.

    Last Summer started the Make A Difference Program and, after a rally of votes, invited 10 individuals to help serve in their communities and participate in this program. This started the M.A.D. program and every month we get updates on how each project is moving forward. Want to find our more about the Make A Difference Program? Click here for details. Hi Donny!
    Our Rescue group had another amazing month!

    Since becoming part of the M.A.D. Team in August:
    * I have answered 337 inquiries about dogs on our {website](
    * I have processed 86 applications to adopt dogs.
    * I have processed 33 membership applications to our group BC Chihuahua rescue. These are the people who volunteer to foster, transport, and help fundraise.
    * My facebook page M.A.D About Rescue is now up to 1838 members and has grown on a daily basis since starting up in August! It has an amazing NETWORK of Rescue people that have been invaluable when a dog is in need! Just in this last week I put out a plea to help three dogs “Peanut”, Lucky Duck and “Benjamin” who were on their last day in the California shelter. Within an hour of writing the members on our MAD website, these dogs had been arranged to be pulled from their certain death , and were in foster homes!! I LOVE this group!!!!
    * Here is the link to the Pet Photo shoot with Santa!! did an awesome job of accomodating 129 visiting pets and helping us with some much needed fundraising for vetting all of the dogs we have taken in! Here is the link to the pictures!
    * We have taken in 43 dogs since August!!!! All have been vetted by us, as we make sure they are up to date with shots, spayed or neutered, and dentals.
    * Our MAD slideshow is updated. Here you will see our supporters, foster families, transporters, fundraisers, and businesses that help us out! — Check it out!
    * The Urban Dance Company continues to sell our MAD jewellery line in their store!
    * A very proud moment for BC Chihuahua Rescue is our decision to reach out and help out when we can in California, where the shelter dog situation is indeed beyond sad. Our latest arrivals were Fawn, Holly and Chester who were flown to us by a volunteer transporter with Alaskan airlines. They were within one hour of being euthenized and are now safely in our care! All have adorable personalities and we are ecstatic about giving them a deserved chance at happiness! It will be actually more than 3, because one is about to become a mama anyday now! Oy! Another new experience for me in Rescue!!

    Take Care! Linda
