Shelby (formerly Ellen), is a real Shih Tzu who was rescued from South Suburban Humane Society when she was nearly two years old. Although she only had a short stay at the humane society before finding her forever home, not all animals are that fortunate.
South Suburban Humane Society is a not-for-profit dedicated to promoting the well-being of pets and the people who love them in the Metro Chicago region. Through the care and sheltering of animals needing protection; providing pet care resources to communities; promoting the human-pet bond through adoption services to find forever homes for animals in its care; and targeted, high-impact spay/neuter policies, the South Suburban Humane Society makes every effort toward ending pet homelessness, reducing pet overpopulation, and creating a better world for pets and their people.
A percentage of profits from sales of all printed and digitally formatted Shelby the Shih Tzu™ series books is being donated to the South Suburban Humane Society to aid in its ongoing work.
