Who We Are
Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota (STRMN) is an all volunteer organization with a mission to Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Re-Home Shih Tzus and Shih Tzu mixes who are in need of loving homes. We believe every dog should have a second chance, and should be treated as a living creature with respect, dignity and compassion. While our volunteers are located in Minnesota, we are committed to rescuing Shih Tzus from other states as well. As long as we have an available foster home, we will rescue and care for another Shih Tzu. STRMN is a 501c3 charitable, non profit organization. All donations to STRMN are tax deductable and 100% of donations go toward the care and comfort of our rescued dogs.
Where do our dogs come from?
Our rescued dogs come from a number of places and situations: owner turn-ins, strays, shelters, puppy mills and some from retired breeders. Regardless of where the dogs have originated, they are given love, kindness and attention in our foster homes and provided full medical care. Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota has high standards for the quality of care provided for our dogs, both in foster care and in their forever adopted homes.
How can I help?
The strength and success of Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota is in our volunteers. Each volunteer brings their skills, talents and expertise to our organization. We work closely with our volunteer foster families in an effort to guarantee a successful experience for all. Throughout the year we plan a number of social activities, hold quarterly membership meetings, fund raising events, and our annual STRMN Rescue Reunion each June.
There is always a dog needing to come in to rescue and a foster home. We very much need more homes so we do not have to turn away any dogs. If you have space in your home, and love in your heart for a Shih Tzu or Shih Tzu mix, we want to talk with you! Please also read “Why Become a Foster Parent?” written by one of our foster moms who especially cares for puppy mill dogs. STRMN will cover all necessary veterinary care at pre-approved veterinary clinics

Our Featured Shih Tzu
This breed is more closely related to the wolf than any other breeds.
Whether a star in the ring or at home, the Shih Tzu is one of the oldest breeds of dog
Dear Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota,
We at DogBreedsInfo.org are pleased to present you with a Dog Rescue Award for excellence in providing underprivileged dogs a much valued resource. We take pride in acknowledging the best organizations around the country with our special award emblem, recognizing them for their outstanding work - Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota certainly qualifies as one of them.
Thank you for all the work you and your organization provides for dogs in need. We wish you the best in continuing your highly valued service. DogBreedsInfo have recognized your dedication to dogs and your willingness to help them out. And if anything deserves an award, wouldn't that be it?
Pumpkin is an adorable two-year-old, 8-pound, black and white, female Shih Tzu. Up until the time she came into foster care Pumpkin had spent her entire life in a puppy mill, so she is just now finally figuring out what it means to be a “real” dog!
Due to her prior circumstances, Pumpkin tends to be shy at first, but when she gets to know you, she loves the companionship. Pumpkin also loves to chew on bully sticks, carry her stuffed toys around the house and roughhouse with the two other Shih Tzus who live at her house. And, Pumpkin also loves to go for walks and loves to ride in the car.

Many online retailers participate in iGive. When you visit a participating online store, you will see a button that says “iGive ON”. You can see that store’s deals by clicking the button. When you make a purchase, a portion of your purchase goes to your cause. It never costs more, the stores pay for it, and iGive takes care of all the details. Initially just log on to www.iGive.com and select Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota from the dropdown as the cause you wish to receive the donation. Then make your online purchase with the retailer. iGive will even let you know when they have sent a check to STRMN.
Also, another way to financially support STRMN is to think about including Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota as a possible beneficiary in your estate planning. Our rescued dogs will always need vetting, our greatest expense.
Thank you to the Petco Foundation for their generous grant this spring. Thanks to your help, we’ll be able to afford more veterinary care for more dogs. The animals thank you, too!
