Peke A Tzu Rescue

Peke A Tzu Rescue is a Non-Profit Shih Tzu Rescue and Pekingese Rescue exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We are also active in Maltese Rescue, Poodle Rescue, Yorkie Rescue and Mixed Small Breed Rescue. Our primary location is in Trufant, Michigan but we do have foster homes in Indiana and Florida. The rescue is comprised of volunteers donating their time and love. We do not receive any money from city, county, state or federal governments. The volunteers are not paid except with pupster kisses and adoration. Many of the gift shop items are donated by volunteers so that the rescue receives 100% of the sales proceeds. Also the Director of the rescue maintains our website so that we do not have website fees with the exception of server costs. We rescue dogs from local animal shelters, animal control facilities and private owners. All are fostered in our homes until they find their Forever Home. All vetting needs are addressed upon arrival with the appropriate follow up vet visits. We also provide a Pre Adoption Physical which is done within a 7 day period prior to adoption. This physical includes a wellness exam and fecal. A copy of the Pre Adoption Physical with our veterinarian's signature will be supplied to the adopter. We will keep an update of total vetting costs at Foster Vetting Costs. We do adopt out of state, but request that the Adopter fly in or drive in to get the baby.
Additional information on adoption can be found at Adoption Guidelines.

    All of us pupsters are football fanatics. We watch every game from the pregames to the final big one "THE SUPER BOWL!!"
    We thought we would have our own Super Bowl and invite all of our prior customers to participate by sending us a picture of their pupster modeling a Peke A Tzu Rescue belly band.
    The belly bands being modeled can be any of our fabrics for we think all of the pupsters look "Super" no matter what fabric they have chosen.
    All proceeds of this contest will be applied to our fabric fund so that we can continue to provide quality belly bands to our Peke A Tzu Rescue Pupster Patrons.

    Hey, pupster friends. We know some of you aren't overly excited with your new wardrobe so we thought we would offer something especially for you.
    When your Mom or Dad sends us your picture for the contest ask them to send your guess for the final score for the Super Bowl Game.
    For Example New York Giants 21..New England Patriots 14.
    The pupster's guess that is the closest to the total of both teams final score will win two of our squeaker and ball bones plus three flannel pull toys that our volunteer makes for us. We pupsters here love them!

    If there is a tie each winner will receive this special gift.

    We pupsters are really excited about this contest knowing that our Pupster Patron Friends will be "lifting" in style!
