|Wee Rescue is an all-volunteer organization
dedicated to rescuing Lhasa Apsos, Shih Tzus,
and Pekingese from Central Texas shelters. Our
mission is to place these homeless dogs into
safe, loving, permanent homes in Greater Austin
We are a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are
tax deductible. Visit our donation page to make a
Wee Rescue takes dogs with medical conditions, meaning that we often take in “seniors”
and/or dogs with great needs (medical, grooming, etc.). We are fortunate enough to have
foster parents who are willing to help these frail creatures who sometimes end up
becoming permanent fosters, and we extend our sincerest thanks to those fosters who
give a warm and loving homes to these fosters for the rest of their lives.
Unfortunately, these older and often sick dogs often require more medical care than
younger dogs. Since they remain in foster care for a long time or even for the rest of their
lives, Wee Rescue covers all expenses for those dogs, which are often substantial and
way beyond what our regular adoption fees and donations cover.
For that reason, we are starting up a new sponsorship program that allows those
interested in helping, but who are unable to adopt, to help care for a dog in need by
sponsoring either a particular dog (fully or partially) or by simply contributing to the
sponsorship program in general. If a sponsor decides on a particular dog, the foster
parent will provide regular updates and pictures of that dog and sponsors may even get a
chance to meet “their” dog in person.
As with other tax-deductible donations, anything we receive in this program will go 100%
toward the care for the dogs in our program. All foster parents are volunteers and some
even contribute to recurring expenses themselves. But it is never enough and we always
need more help. The more help we receive, the more dogs we can take off “death row.”
