Who We Are

Shih Tzu and Furbaby Rescue, Inc. is a national rescue organization dedicated to the rescuing and rehoming of toy purebred and mixed breed dogs. We accept dogs in need from shelters, other rescuers, 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.

**News Flash** We have an urgent need for foster homes. Please visit our website at to fill out a volunteer foster home application. 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 don't take the furbabies to a pet store on Saturdays to be adopted. We save our foster furbabies from shelters or they are given to us by previous owners who can no longer care for their furbaby. 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 babies and have been approved by our organization. We then screen the foster baby while in our homes for any behavior problems such as food agression, dog or cat agression, housebreaking issues, etc. One of the jobs of the foster parent is to work with the furbaby and help them adjust to living in a loving home where they have free run of the house. Our favorite part of the job is to just love and adore the foster furbaby and spoil them rotten. We do reap the benefits of watching that scared little furbaby adjust and blossom into a sweet affectionate pup who loves to play and cuddle as they were meant to do.
