Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt throughout Ohio and surrounding states. Adopters should be prepared to come to Central Ohio as we do not ship our dogs.

About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Shih Tzus into permanent adoptive homes. Ohio has a significant number of Shih Tzu that end up in shelters and we are dedicated to reducing and ultimately eliminating Shih Tzu that have to be euthanized in shelters due to lack of space.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are a foster home based organization and do not have a shelter. Please see our events listing on our website for upcoming events at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com

Our Adoption Process:

The first step in our process is to submit an online application at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/forms to get the process started. We do NOT schedule meet and greets prior to an application being approved.

Please read the dog's complete bio on our website at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com and read over our adoption guidelines as most of your questions can be answered there.

Adoption fees are based on the age of the dog and not the vet fees incurred to be fair to older dogs and give them a better chance at adoption. All dogs are spayed and neutered prior to adoption and receive at least their first round of vaccines, including rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella. We also microchip all of our dogs. They are also heartworm tested and on prevention. We do not adopt on a first-come, first served basis but do attempt to match the dog to the family that best suits the dog. We require personal references, landlord (if applicable), and vet reference.

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.
