Toy Breed Rescue in Central Alabama

Southern Shih Tzu Rescue, Inc aka Southern Shih Tzu and TOY BREED RESCUE (SSTR) is a 501(c)3- IRS charity organization, with over 17 years of rescue experience. ALL volunteer rescue, located in central Alabama.

Focusing on rescuing dogs from kill shelters, puppy mill /breeder survivors and on rare occasions taking an owner surrender, but only if they have NO dogs awaiting rescue at a local shelter. They are NOT a public shelter, they do not take in lost or stray dogs or handle animal control contracts.

What is their GOAL? To keep our door OPEN to every toy breed shelter or puppy mill dog that needs our help!

How can they do this? If everyone that visits this page makes a minimum $5.00 contribution to our Vet Fund!

The cost of one lunch could help SAVE the LIFE of a non-adoptable shelter furbaby. Thousands of dogs are killed each year. ALL funding will go directly to the care of a needy furbaby.
