The Story

Tonka was abandoned at a grooming shop-his owners never came to pick him up.

He's a 12 year old boy, a bit fearful, but very sweet.


We have started this fundraiser in order to fund ongoing care and vetting for this little dog.  We may amend the amount as we go along, depending on the amount needed, but in the meantime, we MUST have funding in place in order to provide this baby with only the best care available.

Please keep good thoughts and prayers in your heart for this little one as a new life starts NOW.

We are asking for help with raising the funds to provide basic vetting and ready this little cutie for a new forever home.

Regular updates and photos will be shared on our LSSTLAR Facebook page.

We are counting on the love you all feel for all of these little pups to aid us in our mission to save not only this one, but as many as possible.

If you have trouble using the youcaring fundraiser page, please email "[email protected]"  They need contact with each person having difficulty to figure out what is wrong.

We appreciate all that you allow us to do for these orphaned and neglected, yet very deserving little dogs.  You are the ones that make all of this happen.  You are the ones that put your hearts and money on the line to make up for all of the neglect and abuse they’ve suffered in the past.

Lone Star Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso Rescue is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abandoned and neglected shih tzu and lhasa apsos.

The volunteers of LSSTLAR annually donate over 50,000 hours of their "free" time just to help save little fluffy dogs.

Join us in celebrating what you CAN do if you try.

We rely on solely on donations from the public.  When a dog needs medical attention, we estimate the cost based on our past history and estimates provided by vets.  In the event that a specific dog does not need the funds raised for him/her, we can either apply it to the next needy dog, or refund your donation to you. 

Yes, we do adopt to folks outside of Houston.  We adopt to great homes all over the continental USA.  We can also put you in touch with several transport companies, some low cost and some free, to help you get your baby home to you.  So apply now to adopt ME!!  www.shihtzu-rescue.com.  If you are already approved and want to adopt immediately, simply email [email protected] and make your interest known.

On average, our “normal” basic vetting and care cost was $798 for each dog in 2015.  This includes only the basics:  spay/neuter, dental cleaning, all immunizations, eye medicines, ear medicines, antibiotics for skin infections, grooming, miscellaneous surgeries, etc.  Our average adoption fee was just under $200.  That, of course, leaves a huge gap in our funding for each dog taken in.

Given the extreme level of expenses we incur, we are asking for help with the difference in average basic costs and our adoption fee when we take in a dog.

We will only ask when we have committed to a dog.  We will continue to look for a foster home until we find one.  Sometimes, a dog we’ve tagged may be adopted out to someone in the public, or perhaps another rescue will step up for that dog.  If we have raised funds for that dog, we can either apply the funds to a different dog, our general vetting fund or refund it to you.  It’s your choice.

Of course, not every dogs costs $798.  Some cost $125 and other may cost $950.  But it’s a good average to use from our last year’s statistics.

We desperately need your help so we CAN try to save them all.  We won't turn our backs simply because we are short on funding.  We will ask and beg and beg again, it's worth it to save a life!

Hi Tonka supporters. We are STILL trying to get the funds to treat Tonka's heartworms (and pay his bill to date) He still needs $370 to get to treatment. Please help and share his story! Thanks and happy Friday.

We are still trying to raise funds to pay for Tonka's intake vet care (vaccines, boosters, neuter, blood work to check kidney and liver function, fecal to check for parasites, teeth cleaning) and to pay for his needed heart worm treatment. Hard to believe our amazing vet does all this at the discounted price of $850! It's the best bang for your buck around! Please help Tonka.

Hi there, it's me Tonka. I'm not making too much progress on raising funds to cover my intake vet care or my heart worm treatment. I guess I'm about 1/3 the way there. Thanks for thinking about me...I'll just keep hanging out here and dream of the day when I can be well and find my new family. Love Tonka
