Helping More Shih Tzus

Your donations help us to provide necessary veterinary treatment
for the dogs in our care.

All of our dogs are health checked, vaccinated, Microchipped and neutered prior to adoption but many may also need other procedures such as dental treatment, umbilical hernia repair, mammary tumour removal and occasionally specialist treatment such as orthopaedic or ophthalmic surgery. In 2017 our vet bills were in excess of £54,000.

We are run entirely by volunteers and rely on your donations and fundraising to enable us to provide for the dogs in our care.

Southern Shih Tzu Rescue needs your continued support to be able to continue helping Shih Tzu’s in need.
There are various ways you can support us (list below to hyperlink to the related web page)

Thank you for helping us to help them.

Help Us Celebrate!

2015 was our 30th Year!

Helping Us to Help Them .


Thirty years is a great milestone, and during this time we have rehomed over 3,500 Shih Tzu dogs!

To all those special people who foster, transport, home-check and help us in all sorts of ways, a heartfelt THANK YOU. You are the lifeblood of our charity and without you there would be no rescue.

If you'd like to join us become a Member. If you'd like to help the rescue in any way, you'll be helping Shih Tzu who need us for their wellbeing, to find their new forever homes and to have the comfortable and happy life that all dogs should have.

Right now we are having to turn dogs away due to lack of foster carers, so we would dearly love to celebrate our anniversary by recruiting more lovely, caring Foster Mums & Dads. Would you be interested in Fostering to help us save another dog's life?
