Who We Are

Shih-Tzu Rescue of Central WI Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (License # 279534-DS), dedicated to saving the lives of abused, abandoned and unwanted Shih-Tzu and Shih-Tzu mixes. We are based in Central Wisconsin and adopt out our rescue Shih-Tzu to homes located in WI. Each and every dog accepted into the program undergoes a physical examination by a veterinarian, is spayed/neutered, brought up to date on shots, heart worm checked and started on preventative, de-wormed, and any other medical problems they may have will be treated prior to being adopted. We have no shelter - all of our dogs live in foster homes in the Central Wisconsin area until we find them a home. The adoption fees are based on the age of the Shih Tzu ranging from $175.00 to $450.00. These fees are used to offset our vet bills. We do not adopt out to families with children under the age of 6 years old. To fill out an application to adopt, please email: or go to our website at

Foster Homes

Shih Tzu Rescue of Central WI is in NEED of FOSTER HOMES and/or volunteers who have time to help fund raise, pick up the Shih-Tzu from shelters, check references and do home visits.
