The Story

Update.  Aug 24, 2015

Thelan became very ill last week so we rushed her to the hospital.  She had a raging infection, pretty substantial anemia and an inguinal hernia.  It was touch and go for several days but she made it through the infection.  She is now back and in recovery.  Of course, her bill just skyrocketed so please help.

Backstory.

Little Thelan has been on her own for a long, long time.  Horribly matted - probably one of the top five matted dogs I've seen in 16 years - both eyes damaged beyond repair - just a total mess.

Good samaritan saw her wandering around and begged us to take her.

Of course, we did!!

Look what someone did to this sweet dog!!

You can help us save her.

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.

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 $623 for each dog in 2013.  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 $693.  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!
