Wee Rescue holds adoptions on the 2nd & 4th Saturday of every month at Petco Great Hills Trail in the Arboretum from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
We only adopt in the Austin, Texas area and we do not place our dogs in homes with children under 10 years of age.
Wee Rescue is currently looking for volunteers. We need help with any of the following: Foster homes for our dogs; Fundraising.
Who "Wee" Are
Wee Rescue is an Austin Texas based rescue group that rescues Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, and Pekingese from Town Lake Animal Center. We are an all- volunteer, non-profit rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of abused, abandoned, unwanted Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, and Pekingese breeds. The organization is funded entirely from donations and all the money collected is used solely to cover medical, grooming, and other needs of these dogs. Our dogs come to us from local shelters, as strays, and as owner surrenders.
Adopting a friend
To adopt a dog from Wee Rescue, you need to fill out an application, and have a home visit. Our adoption fees are $250 which helps us to cover the costs associated with the dogs. Since home visits and follow-up visits are a requirement of the adoption process, we adopt out only to the Austin, Texas area.
We take multiple applications on our dogs. We do our best to match our Wee dogs to an adopter. If we have a young, energetic dog, we want the dog to be adopted by the person or family who can best provide for a young dog. If we have a more mature dog who just wants his person as much as possible and is a lap dog, we hope to find someone who is retired or employed part-time. For our very special needs dogs, we just hope to find that "very special adopter."
Come Visit Us!
All of our dogs live in foster homes until adopted. During foster care, we are able to evaluate the dogs to help find just the right home for them. If you would like to meet our dogs, please come to our Meet & Greets. We can also schedule adoption visits.
