Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a safe and loving environment for Shih Tzu, Maltese, Lhasa Apso and occasionally other small mixed breed dogs until appropriate permanent forever homes can be found.


We care for relinquished dogs from owners who can no longer keep or care for their dogs. We also receive dogs from numerous shelters throughout the Denver Metro area and from individuals who have found stray dogs and who have been unsuccessful in locating their owners. CSTMR brings these little dogs into our homes and in the process gets to know each dog's individual personality, temperament, and habits so we can match them with the most suitable home.

Would you recommend Colorado Shih Tzu, Maltese, and Lhasa Apso Rescue?

This rescue helps so many dogs! There are some very sad stories that come through, but a lot of happy families find their pets through this rescue. This is a small all-volunteer organization that could really use your help! I have found it be very rewarding.

CSTMR works hard to match dogs and owners so both will be happy. We have adopted two from here and are extremely pleased with the care they received from their foster home and with the concern even after they were adopted.

This is an excellent organization. I fostered a Shi Tzu that I eventually adopted. I am now fostering a delightful little Lhasa. It is a wonderful thought that you are helping these precious little dogs that might otherwise be homeless. It helps me too...I get to go out for walks that I might not otherwise do!

This is a chance to give dogs a second chance! The families who come forward to adopt these dogs are amazing and seeing that makes it worthwhile. CSTMR adopts approximately 100 dogs a year!
