Who We Are

Homestretch Hounds is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity. Our organization receives no tax dollars, our work is made possible only by the generosity of people like yourself. We are a rescue and shelter located in Southwestern Ohio. Most of our rescued pets come from small, rural pounds. Our mission is to give these fantastic animals a second chance at life by bringing them to our program when their time is up at other facilities. Our program cannot continue without your support. Our adoptable pets have so much to give, they just need to be given a second chance. By adopting a pet, you are truly saving a life. Please take a look at our wonderful dogs for adoption and please spay or neuter your pets. Thank you for your support!

Adopting a friend

Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet. We have many pets in need of a loving forever homes. In adopting a pet, you are actually helping two...the one that you adopt and the one that takes their place in our rescue. If you are thinking of adopting a dog, please take a look at the wonderful dogs we have in need of homes. If you cannot adopt a pet, please consider a donation of a few dollars, a gift card, or supplies to help us in caring for pets waiting for homes. Thank you for your generosity in helping homeless pets!

Prior to adoption, all pets have been examined by a licensed veterinarian, spayed or neutered, given age appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, treated for fleas, checked for internal parasites, treated for internal parasites as needed, and all dogs are heartworm tested.

Our adoption fee is $165 for most dogs and puppies and includes microchipping, spay or neuter, and the above mentioned vet care. We do not profit on these fees, these fees help us to cover some of our expenses.

Please send us an email for more information on any of our adoptable pets or for an application to adopt.
Thank you for giving a pet in need a second chance at life!!!

Interested in helping dogs in need?

If you have room in your heart and your home please adopt one of our wonderful dogs. If you are not able to adopt at this time, then please sponsor one of our wonderful adoptable pets. Some of the adoptable pets are only with us for a short time, while others are with us much, much longer. Our rescue is open to any pet in need as space allows. The expense of caring for these residents whether short or long term is huge. Sponsorships can be arranged in any amount.

We are in need of supplies for the animals. We are always in need of new or gently used, leashes, collars, dishes, toys, cages and crates...and just about any other pet item you can think of. Good quality dog and cat food, treats, paper towels, bleach, laundry detergent and other cleaning supplies are also needed. We are also in need of new or gently used comforters, blankets, bath rugs with non-skid backing, dog and cat beds. If you can donate any items, please contact us, thank you!

Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. We are all volunteer allowing 100% of all donations to go where they should, to the dogs.

Thank you very much for your support!
