Welcome!  NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue (NorthStar/NSSTR) is an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to Shih Tzu and Shih Tzu blend dogs and the people within our community.

Located in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/Saint Paul, with foster/adoption programs in the Twin Cities, Chicago & Rockford IL, we operate as a no-kill rescue that provides rescue and adoption services, and meaningful outreach programs in order to advance the welfare of these companion animals, to serve and educate our community, and to make a positive, loving impact on the lives of both.

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!
