NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue exists to benefit both Shih Tzu and Shih Tzu blend dogs and the people of our community. 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.

We actively works to rescue Shih Tzu and Shih Tzu blend dogs from dangerous environments and shelters with the ultimate goal of placing them in loving, permanent, adoptive homes. We rescue unwanted, abandoned, and abused dogs. We have them vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and provide other medical care.

Pet Friendly Angel of Hope Animal Rescue
Angel of Hope Animal Rescue Angel of Hope Animal Rescue works with local cats and dogs from animal controls and shelters. All of our foster pets live in foster homes with families while they get ready for adoption. Prior to adoption pets are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, cats are tested for feline leukemia, and dogs are tested for heart worm. We are a limited intake, all volunteer organization, that fits our foster pets with appropriate foster homes. At adoption we can help you determine if the pet is a good fit for your home and family. We will share their personalities and quirks with you to help you decide.

Angel of Hope began helping cats and kittens in 2003, ten years later we are rejuvenating it and adding puppies and dogs to the list of wonderful pets that find forever homes. Stop by our next adoption event and meet your new best friend!
