How do I adopt a pet?
Adopting a rescue dog is a rewarding experience. Not only are you adding a wonderful member to your family but your adoption donation enables us to save more stray, abandoned, and abused dogs.
To a dog lover, owning a rescued dog is a very special privilege. Rescued dogs seem to know they’ve been given a second chance and usually show their appreciation, accordingly, in the love and loyalty they give to their new owners.
After what these little dogs have gone through, we want to be sure they are going to be happy in their new home (and we want you to be happy too). Therefore we try to match adopters to dogs based on the adopters’ desires and situation, and also on the dog’s personality. Since our dogs are fostered until they’re adopted, we get to know them and their little personality quirks.
Are there any adoption requirements?
Tzu Zoo Rescue’s (TZR) purpose is to place homeless Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos and other fluffs into loving forever homes suited to each individual dog’s needs. We take special care to match the right home with the right dog, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the dog and the adopter. To ensure the best matches are made, we have a process that is effective in determining the best homes for our dogs. Our adoption process may seem time-consuming or unnecessarily complicated, but please know that we have the dogs’ best interests at heart. We strive to find the best homes possible for each of our dogs, as well as find the right dog for you and your lifestyle which is why each application is taken on its own merit.
