NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue needs foster homes!

We need foster homes near Minneapolis & Saint Paul!

Please contact us so we can send you an application.

Every minute matters when it comes to rescuing a Shih Tzu.  We may get a short notice that someone needs to surrender their dog or a puppy mill dog needs a temporary home. We can’t help if we don’t have families willing to foster.

Most Tzu’s adopt out fast, but like anything there is a process and we will always make sure our dogs go to the best family to ensure they’re taken care of the rest of their lives.

Not sure what you’d be committing to as a Shih Tzu foster family?

We have people to help train you and your family.  If you, or someone you know is interested please email us at
