Dallas-Fort Worth Shih Tzu Rescue & Lhasa Apso Rescue
“Dedicated to helping homeless pets find their way home.”
DFW Tzus & More Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue and foster care organization whose ultimate mission is to match homeless Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apsos, and their furry friends with loving, forever home, and give these homeless animals a second chance at a wonderful, new life. By working closely with local animal shelters, we hope to prevent the senseless euthanasia of these unfortunate stray or abandoned pets, which have ended up in shelters through no fault of their own. We also take dogs from owners who can no longer care for them. As our human population ages, we are taking more and more dogs from the elderly who have to downsize and go into senior facilities where dogs aren't allowed. So heartbreaking!
We are an ALL VOLUNTEER group and take no salaries nor personal expenses. As we say often, ALL of our $$ go to the dogs! Our main expenses are vet care, boarding, and grooming. Most of our volunteers work full time, have families, and yet still make time to love and care for their foster dogs as if they were family. We have a great group of selfless volunteers who definitely go above and beyond.
We usually have weekly adoption events on Saturdays at Euless Petsmart, and our foster parents attend as often as possible in order to find homes for their foster dogs and make space available so that we can save more dogs. We are always in need of additional caring foster homes and volunteers to transport from shelters to vet clinic.
If you are interested in volunteering, we encourage you to come out to Euless Petsmart and meet us. Check our event schedule on our website www.savethetzus.com for times. Our reward is a Happy Home, and believe us when we say that once you find that ideal match for your first foster, you will be ADDICTED to RESCUE and Rescue will become your passion too!
