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

“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.”    —

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

All of our adoptable dogs can be seen at https://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=IL824. We're a no-kill rescue based out of foster homes around Champaign-Urbana, so please fill out our adoption application at http://goo.gl/forms/tllJgYfPIq and let us know if you're interested in a particular dog and we can bring them to you for a home visit. The normal adoption donation is $200, and entitles you to a Petfinder adoption kit worth $160.

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