Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Fuzzy Pawz Shih Tzu Rescue of Ohio is a small group of foster homes in Ohio. We adopt our Shih Tzus to mainly Ohio residents but out of state adoptions are not out of the question. It is the responsibility of the new adoptive home to arrange transportation.

About Our Rescue Group:

Fuzzy Pawz Shih Tzu Rescue is a small group of volunteers and foster homes who dedicate their time and energy to saving Shih Tzus and Shih Tzu mixes. We take in owner turn-ins, pull from shelters and also take in mill dogs. We are a 501c3 non profit rescue and rely solely on donations and adoption fees for funding.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our foster furkids are in foster homes. We do not have a shelter. Appointments are necessary to meet your future adopted fur kid.

Our Adoption Process:

If you are interested in adoption, please email the foster parent listed on the bio for an application . Your application will be reviewed by our board of directors, references called as well as your vet reference. If all these pass, a home visit will be scheduled. We strongly suggest that the applicant ask as many questions about the dog as possible before the adoption takes place.

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.
