About Us


We are a new rescue ready to celebrate our 1 year anniversary soon.

NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue welcomes new foster homes ready to help these deserving companion animals.

NSSTR appreciates your tax deductible donation. All proceeds go directly to the veterinary care of our adoptable dogs. Your contribution is making a real difference in the life of a loving little Tzu.

Adopting A Friend

NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue strives to best match each dog and family. We're interested in good homes and good people so we ask for information and references. We also do a home visit before final placement is made.

Please send us an email to express interest in any of our dogs and we will send you complete information and an adoption application.

Our email: NorthStarShihTzuRescue@gmail.com

You want the best dog for your family and we want the best match for our sweet dogs. Thank you for choosing NSSTR.
