Tiny Treasures Rescue is an not-for-profit organization that takes in orphaned, abused and neglected Shih Tzu and other small dogs in New York City and Westchester County. TTR rehabilitates dogs that have been through serious abused or have long-term illnesses or conditions. The organization also cares for senior dogs and ensures that the dogs spend their remaining lives in a peaceful, safe and loving home. TTR is not a shelter but a volunteer-based rescue group. The rescued dogs are taken care of in foster homes until the organization finds a permanent home for the animals.

Based on North Bellmore, New York, Pug-Peke-Tzu Rescue takes in small dog breeds, especially Shih Tzus, pugs and Pekingese dog breeds. Like other rescue groups, the organization rescues small dog breeds regardless of age and health.

The local chapters of the ASPCA and Humane Society in New York also are also dedicated in rescuing dogs of any breed, size, age and health condition. Both the HS and ASPCA are no-kill organizations and are dedicated to finding permanent homes for adoptable dogs.
