Why should I donate?
Every penny of your donation goes to the care and welfare of the dogs.  Our members are all
volunteers.   All of our funding comes from donations or fund raising by our volunteers. 

Our primary cost is for veterinary expenses and the cost of bringing dogs back to health is a large
one.  Our adoption fees range from $100 to $400 per dog, depending on its age.  The adoption fee
does not even begin to cover the veterinary costs Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota has invested in the
dog.

Our secondary cost is for education: the printing and distribution of brochures, handouts, and
communication.   These materials offer training, health and socialization information, as well as
featuring dogs ready for adoption.

Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.  All donations are tax deductible.  
If you would like to donate, please send to Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota, P.O. Box 46562, Eden
Prairie, MN  55344. 

If you are interested in working with us, sharing your time and knowledge, please contact us. We
would like to meet you.  Please contact a Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota volunteer.

How are the donated funds applied?
We are glad when a Shih Tzu is adopted into a good home.   No matter where our dogs came from,
our goal is to find them a home where they will be cared for and loved. But if you ever wonder, or
ever hear someone ask, "What do you sell your dogs for?" remember there are costs, emotional and
financial, visible and some not obvious, involved in getting a dog from where it was rescued to the
good home it deserves.  Bringing a dog into rescue can be as simple as “picking up the dog”, and as
complex as restoring trust, obtaining multiple evaluations, and undergoing necessary medical
procedures.   Typical expenses from the time a dog comes into rescue until the dog is adopted
include:

Transport of a dog (gas expenses) from  its unwanted home/abusive situation to its
foster home …………………………………$25+

Standard Veterinary Expenses:
    Office Visit $45
    Spay or Neuter $300
    Dental treatment (loose or diseased teeth can lead to infection) $200-$300
    Heartworm testing $35
    Heartworm Medication $35
    Vaccinations & microchipping $100
    Bath, grooming, nail trim $25-$50

Prescriptions & Dietary Supplements to restore health… $25-100

Telephone calls to check references of applicant (often long distance)………….. $5

Transport of dog (gas expenses) to the family interested in that dog……………..$5 - $25

THE AVERAGE COSTS TO STRMN FOR SERVICES PROVIDED FOR EACH DOG IS BETWEEN $500
AND $1,000.

These typical costs do not take into account infections, abuse injuries, or surgeries. Our
adoption fee is based on the dog's age. It does not reflect the expenses the rescue has incurred in
addressing the medical, emotional and nutritional needs of that dog.

Most significantly, the adoption fee demonstrates the new family's commitment to their dog. To
some people "free" means easily discarded. Our mission is to place dogs in homes where they will
be valued and loved.   The adoption fee is one way for the adoptive family to say, "The life and love
of this dog are secure”.
