The Chi Amigos - Austin Chihuahuas & Their Toy Breed Friends Message Board › Welcome and Holiday Happenings Meetup Info
I wanted to extend a personal welcome to all our new Amigos! Your active participation makes us a strong and helps all our Chibabies learn important and appropriate social skills! THANK YOU FOR JOINING US!!!! We are very excited to add happy new faces to our growing family of Chi and toy breed lovers in Central Texas.
Our holiday donation drive for the adoptable pets of our sponsor, Ay Chihuahua Rescue, is well on its way to help meet their many needs. More than anything they need monetary donations of course, or prepaid veterinary vouchers/gift certificates at either Balcones Animal Hospital (512-258-538), Emancipet, Animal Trustees of Austin or Humane Society of Williamson County. They also need small collars, short leashes, dog beds, bags of the dog food Wellness, Royal Canin for Chihuahuas, Blue Bluffalo or Solid Gold. Gift Certificates to Petco or Petsmart are also a great idea allowing them to get then what they need.
Ay Chihuahua Rescue will be bringing all of their handmade goodies with them for sale as well! Fleece blankets, snug sacks, their AMAZING harnesses, fun car magnets, hand painted pendants exclusively designed for ACR by local artist Monica Knighton, and much more!!! Stop by the bright orange xB in the parking lot with aychihuahuarescue.org in the back window and check out all the wonderful items they have for sale that might just help you finish up your gift list!!!
ONE LAST NOTE: Have you seen the Doggie Delight Raffle Basket from ACR yet? They have put together a basket o' goodies valued at over $200! Tickets are just $5 or 15 for $50!! We will be drawing the lucky winners name at the Holiday Happenings Meetup event!!!r You need not be present to win - but what a basket of presents it is!!! WOO HOO!

As of today, the weather looks like it will hold for us and make for a nice outdoor meeting! Should that forecast change, watch your email and our Meetup group website for details on where we will meet instead.
In the meantime, we will be getting some information put together for purchasing some Chi Amigo t-shirts and brochures to help us spread the word about our happy meetup group! You are all amazing and your Organizers wish you the best of holidays seasons and warmest of Chi-lovin' to all!
