Donations and Volunteering
Donations to our rescue effort are much appreciated.
We are always grateful to receive cash donations or donations of supplies (all sizes of crates, premium dog food, towels, blankets, shampoo, toys and treats, etc.) Some of our dogs have special medical needs, and donations can be made directly towards their medical treatments on our website at NBSTR.org. We can also use help with transporting dogs and fostering. FOSTER HOMES are a great need! Typical time frames for fostering are from 3 weeks to several months at a time. It is very rewarding, and you will enjoy watching the Shih Tzu blossom under your care. If you wish to join New Beginnings Shih Tzu Rescue and become a foster parent, email
