Coco Chanel

Coco is a petite beauty who was rescued by a Good Samaritan. She is a little bundle of joy!

She is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever known. She loves dogs, cats, kids. She is truly a diamond in the RUFF!!!



Thomas the Tank Engine

TomTom is an adult male - available now for adoption! He is a 3 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. Thomas was one of the 500 dogs taken in a giant dog-fighting bust in Missouri in 2009 (click here for more info) and we got Thomas through the U.S. Department of Justice. Thomas loves cuddling, walks, kids, and cats. He is too pushy for most dogs, though.  



Lainey is a senior adult female - available now for adoption!

She is 9-10 years old but is very active. She loves kids, adults, and cats, but does not like other dogs. Poor Lainey was adopted out to a family in 2006 and came back to us in 2012 because her family had gotten a new dog and Lainey didn't like him. So they kept the new dog and gave away their "old" dog. Grrrr! Will you be her forever family?

Brutus Buckeye

Brutus came to us as a horrible

abuse/neglect he is living the best life ever, basking in the love of his forever family!  


Morgan is a young adult. She was surrendered right before Christmas by a single mother who had lost her home and car and had to move in with family who wouldn't allow their dogs. Morgan was living outside 24/7 and was freezing to death. Now she is warm and happy in her forever home.


Gizmo is a senior Chihuahua who was dumped at a shelter by his owners when he became incontinent (because of old age). In this video he is looking a bit befuddled, not sure what's going on with the camera. Gizmo is also very incontinent. He is a permanent sanctuary dog.

who had a very rough life before we rescued her. She still does not fully trust most people but she loves her sanctuary family. She is a permanent resident in one of our loving foster homes as one of our sanctuary dogs.




Fancy is an adult female who we rescued from a backyard breeder (she was forced to live in a squalid cage outside and bred to produce many litters sold for illegal drugs). She is now spayed, fat, and happy in her INSIDE loving forever home!




Phoenix (FiFi) is an adult female who was found starved almost to death, so emaciated that the fleas had left her cold body to find a "living" host. She is now completely healthy and in love with all humans and dogs!
