About Our Rescue Group:

We are an all-volunteer, foster-home-based group dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abandoned, abused and otherwise neglected shih tzu and lhasa apsos.

If we have space available, we take in dogs of all ages and with any type of medical condition.

Our Adoption Process:

An adoption applicaion is required. We ask for three references and a vet reference if you have had a dog in the past two years. We require a home visit.

We rarely adopt to homes with young children unless they have proven experience with shih tzu or lhasas or a similar temperament small dog.

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.
