January Cause ‘Good Works’ Story



Star Pup of the Month

Lhasa Happy Homes Rescue, Inc. is a rescue and foster care organization in the Los Angeles area that specializes in saving Lhasa Apsus and Shitzus, but also helps other small dogs (under 20 lbs) in need of homes.  It was created almost by accident, when the founder went to a shelter to adopt a pup and found it full of abandoned Lhasas and Shitzus.

One iGive member wrote, “Lhasa Happy Homes…saves the broken and sick dogs from shelters that no other rescue will take. Just last week, they rescued a little shihtzu who has a grade 6 heart murmur (the highest) and she has already had a risky spay surgery and will have surgery soon to determine if she has a PDA (blocked artery in her heart). They will rehab her until she is ready to be adopted to a forever home that they thoroughly check out to make sure it’s the best home possible for her. That’s just one example of the work they do. I can think of several dogs they saved that would have otherwise been put to sleep.”
