Dear Volunteers, Adopters, and Supporters,
We continue to grow in 2013 and life for our volunteers becomes more demanding. We can really use your continued support and recommitment to the babies.
During 2012 alone we rescued 162 homeless,
neglected and abused dogs that you helped in some way to get adopted to loving
The cost of medical treatments this past year exceeded over $89,000. As the number of dogs we
rescue and the costs associated with our work continue to increase, so do the
We all know the importance of thanking our Donors and Sponsors but this is not something we have been able to keep up with like we know we should. We're hoping that some of you will be willing to say "Yes" and assist administratively by helping us send out the "thank you notes" to our website benefactors and golf tournament sponsors. We have standard letters composed, just need a personal sentence or two and mailing......something you can do from home.
We have obtained a new volunteer for the website and maintenance, so the biggest need we have right now is for a Meet and Greet Coordinator.
The Meet and Greet Coordinator is someone who would be willing to coordinate events in different area venues like Petco stores, dog bakeries, dog parks, garden centers, and other dog friendly
venues. Sites are up to you, with final approval, of course.
You would send emails advising of events and set up a team to arrange transports and set-ups also. Gather a power team around you and the tasks will not be large!
If you have knowledge of Power Point or similar software, we could also use help there, as well as with making flyers for our Meet and Greets, as well as other events.
If Tzu Zoo Rescue is going to continue to provide and improve the important services we have in the past, we need your assistance. Please consider volunteering to help with the above mentioned needs.
Contact either Lynda, Stephanie or Carol if you would like to help.
Now comes the PLEA for MONEY. WE ALWAYS NEED!!! There are continuing expenses involved with our wonderful and understanding vets.
In Summary -
Tzu Zoo Rescue Volunteers, Adopters and Supporters
Please help where you can and encourage others to do so as well. This is a great rescue who gives less-adoptable dogs the chance to flourish and eventually add joy to a family.
A special thank you to those who give regularly. Your help us sustain every month. Each and every donation makes a difference.

Early in my rescue career, there was no way I could have more than 3 dogs, so I thought I would just do transports and shelter pulls.
One October Saturday in 2003, I raced to catch up with Bekye to get a little guy on her transport. She had 8 dogs stuffed in her compact car and here I was going to add another. Since I had a SUV, I offered to finish it taking the rest of the way to Centerville. We had crates enough for all of them except this beautiful lhasa gal named Princess.
Princess became Brittany in our rescue and she sat like a perfect girl in the passenger seat. When she wanted loved, she nuzzled under my hand and then looked at me with the eyes that I missed so deeply from my beloved Pebbles. A month later, I went to Houston for a Meet and Greet - there she was. I couldn't part with her again, so un-be-knowst to Bobby, he had just become a "foster" dad to this beautiful girl.
I actually adopted her out, but agreed to keep her over the holidays since they were going out of town. They didn't call when they were supposed to, so I got that funny feeling they weren't good enough for her and adopted her for ME!!! She has been the one dog that I owned that was all mine.
She was never a huge fan of my continued rescue work, but tolerated it like the lady she was. She loved going on home visits and car rides just with mom. When the bed would get too crowded, she literally dove off the bed in the beanbag purchased just for her.
These photos were taken this year. She has always been beautiful, with a unique little underbite. The loss hurts, but the journey with her was very rewarding and never a regret that I didn't let her go. I had never witnessed Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia and I wish I never had.
Thanks for reading this and viewing her photos. In her honor, my husband and I have donated $1000 to Tzu Zoo Rescue to make sure more are saved.

We started on June 3, 2008 taking in our very first foster Tiffy.
Since that time we have done the following:
We still have 15 that need a foster home, so let me know if you can help with them.
Be proud of what we have accomplished. These numbers are unbelievable for our small little group.
Thank you for hanging in there to save all these fluffs.
