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

Contribute to our Capital Fund to help establish a Community Adoption Center to improve the lives of more people throughout Central Illinois. Your property, vehicle, cash, and in-kind donations can help us acquire a facility and make the necessary zoning and licensing improvements.

      A donation of $500 will supply nonpermeable flooring for a portion of the indoor space. A donation of $5,000 will provide fence materials for a one-acre exercise yard. A suitable property donation or monetary equivalent can earn your family or your business "naming rights" to our new facility.

No-Kill Rescue & Foster Care

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

With Paypal You can sponsor one dog, sponsor a dog each month, or help us establish a comfortable and dedicated facility.

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

“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.”    —
