Who We Are

Shih Tzu and Furbaby Rescue, Inc. is a national rescue organization that is dedicated to the rescuing and rehoming of toy purebred and mixed breed dogs. We accept dogs in need from shelters, other rescuers, puppy mills and individuals giving up their pets for a variety of reasons. Our furbabies are examined and treated by our veterinarians, innoculated, and spayed or neutered before placement. They are also thoroughly temperament assessed. We believe that, somewhere, there is a home for every dog, but that we have a responsibility to place our dogs into homes that will best meet their needs, both physically and emotionally. We look for people with patience and loving hearts, and an understanding of the furbaby mind. Shih Tzus and Furbabies, Inc is a non-profit organization recognized under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Your donation may be tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Adopting a Friend

We welcome your inquiries. Potential adopters are asked to complete an application, which includes personal information, personal and veterinarian references, and questions which will help us to determine which pet will fit best into your home and family. We are looking for homes which understand that adopting a pet is a 10 to 15 year committment to love and care for this little being and all his needs. APPLICATION FORM.



Shih Tzu and Furbaby Rescue appreciate your generosity and loving hearts. We have an ophthalmology fund, for the many pups that come to us needing eye surgery - common in Shih Tzus, Pekinese, and other toy breeds. We also graciously accept donations to our vet fund, and appreciate those of you who shop through, allowing webstores to donate a % of your purchase to our babies. For more information on what's needed or how to contribute, Email Meredith. We appreciate all inquiries. Thank you!

Volunteers Needed

We have an urgent need for foster homes. We do not operate a shelter or have any formal facility. All our rescue pups are in private approved foster homes throughout the United States. We do not take our fosters to a pet store on Saturdays to be adopted. Adopters must be fully approved before adoption. We save toy breeds from shelters, puppy mills or they are given to us by previous owners who can no longer care for their pet. We then have the pups fully vetted, including all shots, heartworm and fecal tests, spayed or neutered, and a thorough examination of ears, eyes, etc. for any potential health problems. Our vets are familiar with the health concerns of rescue dogs and have been approved by our organization. We then screen the foster baby while in our homes for any behavior problems such as food aggression, dog or cat aggression, housebreaking issues, etc. One of the jobs of the foster parent is to work with the foster and help them adjust to living in a loving home where they have free run of the house. Foster parents have the pleasure and sheer joy of loving and adoring the foster furbaby and spoil them rotten. We do reap the benefits of watching that scared little furball adjust and blossom into a sweet affectionate pup who loves to play and cuddle as they were meant to do.
