About Our Rescue Group:

CUTEODYSSEY'S DOGGIE RESCUE is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused, abandoned and neglected dogs. We are now a 501(c)(3) non profit!!
Cuteodyssey Rescue is primarily a Shih Tzu Rescue (although we do take other breeds and mixes), located in San Diego, CA. We are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, tax ID number: 27-441-9788. Look for us soon proudly listed in Guidestar, the national database of non-profit organizations. We love dogs and we love to see them enhance a life. Our goals are two-fold. First, we want to save shelter dogs and secondly, we want your life to be improved by matching a wonderful dog to a safe, loving and caring family. No one should have to live without a furry little friend, when there are so many of these little munchkins needing loving homes.

Nowadays, we visit area shelters and rescue small dogs, usually between 3 and 15 pounds. Occasionally, we will also have dogs available that have been relinquished by their owners, for one reason or another. All our dogs are given their basic shots, rabies vaccine, flea and tick treatment, worming medication, vet checked, micro chipped, and are spayed/neutered. We keep the dog in our home for some TLC and evaluation in regard to its temperament, socialization, and health, in order to make the best possible fit for a prospective adopter.

The dogs you visit on our website are living in our home as loved members of our family. They beg at the table at meals, sleep in our beds, snuggle in our laps while we watch TV, go for rides in the car, chase the mop, and happily celebrate our return home, even after just taking out the garbage!!! We are not a shelter. This is our home and everyone that comes into our home has the run of it. (We have a lot of tile and hard wood!!) Sleeping kennels, cozy cages, and warm comfy couches, chairs and laps.

Forgive us if we seem to be intrusive when applying for a dog. We are extremely picky in choosing homes for our little ones and WICKEDLY protective. Once they become members of our family, we treat them as we would our own children when we're placing them in a new home. Although we don't have a history on the dog's past or know how it got to the shelter, we do have a sense of its character and needs. If you see a little one that you'd like to adopt, please fill out an application. We get quite a lot of email, so please be patient with us, as we do try to get back to each and every person. (We don't monitor our message machine very well, but we do monitor our email).

If we feel that you would be a good match for one of our little ones, we will phone or email you and make an appointment for you to see the dog. All dogs are shown in our home by appointment. We, generally, do not adopt our little ones to families with children. Our babies are children themselves and deserve your full attention.
Legal notes:

To all potential adopters of our dogs:
The exact age of each individual dog is in some cases never actually known, as many of our rescued dogs have no history of ever having had homes. We do our best to get as many Veterinary opinions on the approximate age of each dog and their best guess at the general age range, judging from the health, dental examination, and many other factors, but most importantly, our personal Veterinary doctors opinion. Canine teeth generally begin to show some wear at about 5 years old. Vets also examine the eyes to see if the dog has signs of age related changes. Taking all of this into consideration and comparing it with the average lifespan of the particular breed can give a good approximation of a dog's age. We do our very best to keep you as accurately informed as possible.
Thank you for considering giving a homeless pet a forever loving home.

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.
