Foster Program

Until you have looked into the eyes of a senior dog and learned their wisdom, held a sick or injured dog in your arms and felt their pain, and had your face smothered in sloppy kisses from a puppy … and smiled, you can’t possibly know the life of a rescuer. We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces. It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat … and find the true soul that lies within. We are Rescue!!

Our organization is working to find foster homes for Lhasa Apsos, Shih Tzus and mixes of either breed surrendered by owners or pulled from the shelters, often just days away from death. Without a place to go, these dogs will not leave the shelter alive … time is a gift they do not have.

Please consider joining us in our mission to save their lives. With your help, we CAN make a difference … one dog at a time.

The rescues are full and the shelters are overloaded. The average dog is granted only 5 days to find a home or be destroyed. Only 2 in 10 animals ever leave the shelter.

Rescue groups across the country work tirelessly to save them, but they desperately need foster homes to house these animals while they find their Forever Homes.

Can you open your home to care for one of these beautiful creatures? Time is not on their side. But, with your help, they will have the priceless opportunity to find a home … one that will love them and see to their needs.

A Few Benefits …

  • Love, licks and Lhasas go together. Love is something you cannot give away without it coming back to you. You will have all the love these furry little bundles can give.
  • Your Foster Dog will receive endless support in finding a Forever home through adoption events and internet placement programs.
  • All veterinarian services are covered by the rescue group. Because of limited funding, our foster homes provide food, treats and toys.
  • All foster pets are spayed or neutered, fully vetted, vaccinated and microchipped.
  • All foster pets are screened carefully before being brought into the rescue program f0r medical and behavioral issues.
  • You receive regular and ongoing information and support from coordinators experienced with the breed.

The problem of pet overpopulation is real. Millions of adoptable pets die in our country every year when all they really needed was a home.

Through our national organization, we are finding homes for abandoned or surrendered dogs every day. Please become a part of the solution and help spread the cure. CONTACT US for more information.
