Arizona Shih Tzu and Small Breed Rescue is a 501(c)(3) not for profit rescue dedicated to the rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming of Shih and smaller breeds such as Poodles, Yorkies, Bichon, Schnauzer, Lhasa Apso, Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel and Terriers. We rescue pure breed as well as mixes of all ages ... and we have been know to take a bigger dog or two who have been brought to our doorstep with no where else to go.
We believe that there is a home for every dog, but we have the responsibility to place our dogs into home that will meet their needs both physically and emotionally. We look for people and families with patient and loving hearts who understand the furbaby mind.

If you see a rescue kid that you would be interested in opening your heart and home to, send us an email with the name of our furbaby.
** Please note that we do not adopt out of the state of Arizona **
We will send you a pre-adoption application to complete and return for review within 24 hours. Please do not send multiple emails.
We process each application to be sure we match the right family who will best meet the needs of our Rescue Kid ~ that he or she will thrive!
Once that match is found, we will contact you and set up a Meet and Greet with you and all members (including 4 legged) that will be living in the home. We work with your schedule and they are done 7 days a week.
As an "All Foster All Volunteer" rescue, we do not have a physical brick and mortar building to visit our furry kids.
All of our rescues live with their foster families to show them love and transition them into family life full of happiness
