Welcome to Ohio Fuzzy Pawz Shih Tzu Rescue

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home small breed dogs into permanent loving homes.  To evaluate each dog and potential home with the goal of matching each dog to the best possible home. To provide education with regard to the Shih Tzu breed, the importance of responsible pet ownership, and the importance of spaying and neutering to help with the over-population of pets. To work in cooperation with shelters, rescue groups and other national breed rescues to help coordinate our efforts.

Volunteers & Fosters Needed!

We are always in need of outstanding foster homes.  If you have ever considered fostering, please visit our Volunteer Information page to learn how you could help.
