About Our Rescue Group:

We are a new non-profit Texas corporation for the rescue and rehoming of Shih Tzu and other toy breeds. We are always in need of donations of supplies or funds to assit with rescue costs. Donations can be made on our web site at www.toybreedrescue.com

We accept into our care toy breeds from shelters, lost, owner surrendered, abused and or abandoned.
First stop is for a physical from a licensed veterinarian, shots/exam and alteration. Next stop is in a loving and safe foster home for some TLC. We will evaluate the appropriate environment for each companion. We rehome these companion animals into approved loving adoptive homes.

We do this because there are too many homeless and abused toy breeds that need someone to be their voice.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our companion animals are in loving and safe foster homes in Texas. We don't have a shelter. We prefer a more personal touch of you and the foster family contacting each other and sharing information about the companion of your choice. The foster family lives with the companion daily and no one knows them better. After you have completed an application, your references, and home visit completed we put you in touch with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process:

First you complete adoption application
on our web stie at www.toybreedrescue.com

You sign the adoption contract and pay adoption donation ($250-$400)
This can usually be done within a week as long as your references are available for us to talk with on the phone.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
