Once a match between you and a dog is agreed upon the adoption contract is signed
and a non-refundable adoption fee is due.

The adoption fees are as follows:

  • Dogs up to 8 years of age $350
  • Dogs above 8 years of age $250
  • Any two dogs adopted together 25% off of the adoption fees for both

Then you and your new best friend can begin your lives together!

There are times when more than one person wants the same dog.  We take multiple
applications on each dog and make every effort to find the best match for the dog.

There may be times when the dog that you are interested in may not be the right
match for you and your family.  We base our placement decisions on the specific
needs of each of our dogs.

Completing an application does not insure approval for adoption from our
organization.  Wee Rescue reserves the right to refuse adoption to anyone who we
believe will not provide an appropriate environment for the dogs that we rescue.
These amazing Wee Rescue dogs come to us from a variety of circumstances, but
they have one thing in common: they are all looking for a forever home. If you are
interested in adopting one of our dogs, please follow our application process.
policy is to adopt our dogs to homes in the Austin metro area and nearby
communities because we must do a home visit to complete the process.
Contact us if you are outside the Austin metro area to see if it is possible to
do a home visit.

We have a 3-step adoption process.

1) The first step is to fill out an adoption application. You can download the MS Word
here. If you don't have MS Word, then you can download the PDF version
here. Fill it out and send it to us at info@weerescue.org or bring to a Meet & Greet.

2) Have an in-person interview with a Wee Rescue volunteer at a Meet & Greet, so we
can learn more about you and what kind of dog you are searching for.

3) Upon approval of your application, a home visit will be conducted by a volunteer.  
We do not adopt to families with children under the age of 8, except with approval of
the Board of Wee Rescue.
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
