NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue's Adoption Process

NorthStar strives to best match each dog and family. We're interested in good homes and good people so we ask for information and references. We also do a home visit before final placement is made. You want the best dog for your family and we want the best match for our sweet dogs. Thank you for choosing us!

Please contact us if you have questions about any of our dogs or the adoption process:
