Many areas have private rescue organizations sometimes geared towards specific breeds or sizes, since they take in fewer pets and don't perform euthanasia. Other online resources to search for these include the database of Pets 911 (searchable by breed and location) and Adopt-a-Pet which has a Small Dog Rescue & Adoption feature, too.
