About Colorado Shih Tzu, Maltese, and Lhasa Apso Rescue

The Colorado Shih Tzu and Maltese Rescue (CSTMR) was founded in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt
rescue organization. We are based in Denver and are a member of the All Breed Rescue Network (ABRN).

Our mission is to provide a safe and loving environment for Shih Tzu, Maltese, Lhasa Apso and
occasionally other small mixed breed dogs until appropriate permanent forever homes can be found. We care for relinquished dogs from owners who can no longer keep or care for their dogs. We also receive
dogs from numerous shelters throughout the Denver Metro area and from individuals who have found stray
dogs and who have been unsuccessful in locating their owners. CSTMR brings these little dogs into our
homes and in the process gets to know each dog's individual personality, temperament, and habits so we
can match them with the most suitable home.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
