Meet Enrique! Enrique is about 4 years old and came from the Hocking County Animal Shelter. He is a total love bug who enjoys his people and playing. He does not let his size stand in his way...he can hold his own. True to his breed he prefers to be the big dog in the home and would love to be the only child. Would you like to meet our Enrique?

His adoption fee is $175 and covers the cost of his neuter, vaccines, preventative medications, microchip and 30 day free trial pet insurance. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization and your adoption fee is a tax deductible contribution.

We are looking for fosters.

Have you ever considered being a foster to a homeless dog?
A lot of dogs are put down every week due to not enough space at kill shelters and not enough space at rescue shelters. Rescue shelters can only save dogs that they have a place for whether in the actual shelter or in a foster home. Being a foster has so many advantages. You will feel good about saving a dogs life, giving a dog a second chance to find their forever home, and you will be loved unconditionally just by temporary providing a homeless dog shelter and love until they are adopted. Who knows you may find your forever friend.

Becoming a foster can save a life!

Make a Difference
Please spay or neuter your pets to prevent unwanted litters. Millions of dogs die in shelters each year because there arenít enough good homes for them.

donít buy your pet from a pet store. Pet stores use puppy brokers that buy from auctions and puppy mills. These dogs are breed purely for profit and their care and health are forfeited for the bottom line.

Keep your dog on
heartworm preventative and current on vaccinations. Parvo and heartworms are easily prevented illnesses that can kill a dog and are expensive to treat.

Adopt your next pet from a shelter or rescue organization. The love youíll receive from a dog who knows how bad life can be, cannot be matched.
The feeling you get knowing you saved a life; Priceless.
