This is our awesome transport coordinator picking up Sullivan from West Virginia. This poor fellow was sold at a yard sale and ended up at a kill shelter. 😢 Sullivan has so many issues, the vet hardly knew where to start. For now he's on several medications as well as 3, given 3x per day, for his eyes. We are so fortunate that one of the vet techs took him to foster so his medications could be administered properly. Things are looking up Sullivan! Welcome to SASS!! . . 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 #sassrescue #adoptdontshop #adoptadog

Sears, Daylynn, Castle and Kaufman all started their heartworm treatment. It's hard to put them through it when they seem so happy and healthy, but if we didn't, they wouldn't be that way for long. They will receive another painful injection and will be kept quiet for weeks. A hard thing for young active furkids. Please be sure to protect your pups from this horrible infestation. . . 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 #sassrescue #adoptdontshop #adoptadog
This one is a heartbreaker. 💔How does a 4 yr old end up in this kind of shape? 😢 Cubby is missing an eye, the other is infected. His skin is in such awful condition that it looks like an elephant's. He is underweight. Very frightened. He's the only one that had to have a leash left on. He already has really settled down and is allowing handling. That's just what we can see. He hasn't visited the vet yet, so we hope there are no more issues. Welcome to SASS sweetheart. Your life will change. Promise. . . 💜💔💜💔💜💔💜💔💜💔💜💔💜💔💜💔💜 #sassrescue #adoptdontshop #adoptadog

SASS Rescue is a group of individuals that rescue Shih Tzus from a variety of situations all over the country such as high kill shelters to owner surrenders. We love and care for them in our own homes until a suitable permanent home is found. By having the dogs in our homes it enables us to better help you select the right dog for your family. Our goal is that our dogs will be in a loving home for the rest of their lives.
Shih Tzu is a friendly lap dog that at one time was bred to be a companion dog for Chinese royalty. Some say living in the imperial palace gave the Shih Tzu an arrogant quality, although they also display qualities of devotion and adaptability. They are not afraid to stand up for themselves. They tend to be sweet, playful, and trusting as well.
SASS Rescue is run strictly on adoption donations and the generosity of our supporters. We receive no government funding to save these dogs. We will not turn a dog away due the expense of treatment or location. Our belief is every dog should have a chance at a happy, loving life.
Visit with our pets ready for adoption. Meet your perfect match today!
Without fostering, there is no rescue. Every year we save over 160 pets.
Every little bit counts! Your generous donations help animals most in need.
You can help animals that we would otherwise not be able to facilitate.
