“With Holy Shih Tzu’s help, these small dogs become wonderful companions for families, children with special needs, lonely adults
and the elderly, creating a mutually beneficial human/canine relationship.”    —

No-Kill Rescue & Foster Care

Our dogs are wonderful companions who naturally help with anxiety, PTSD recovery, and depression.

HST is not a breed-specific rescue, but we specialize in small dogs who might not survive a typical shelter.

HST is a foster-based rescue. Most of the adoption process is done online to avoid stressing the dogs.
