ADOPTABLE DOGS

WHO WE ARE
Silverwalk is a small, home based dog sanctuary just outside of Cape Girardeau, MO
specializing in the rescue, fostering & adoptions of Beagles, hounds & senior dogs.
Silverwalk Hounds is a small "division" of Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary, Inc..
Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary has some dogs on site but mostly cats while Silverwalk has only dogs, of which most are hounds.
Safe Harbor and now consequently Silverwalk are a 501c3 tax exempt organization. Please see the link at the top to the Safe Harbor page for more information. Silverwalk remains in Cape Girardeau County outside of Cape Girardeau, MO.

Founded in memory of Goldie, Oliver and Emma, the first 3 rescue dogs of my adult life who are now entertaining God
Inspired by 7 Bells (Cole Camp, MO) & Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuaries



Thank you for your trust w/these dogs - please adopt, donate, foster so others may be rescued and live.

We look forward to helping you adopt
one of our wonderful dogs or directing you to someone else.

All Silverwalk dogs live in and out of the house with access via a dog door to the yards/field.
All dogs are up to date on shots and needed medical treatment
as well as receiving basic obedience training.

The wonderful vets at LaCroix Pet Hospital in Cape Girardeau and Heartland Veterinary Care in Jackson, MO
make sure these dogs are healthy, wealthy in spirit, and perhaps wise :).

"arrooo arrooo!"

Please see Raggedy Ann, Elvis, and others
who are waiting at the Rainbow Bridge under Happy Tails/RIP.
Because we also have senior dogs,
we must acknowledge that death is a part of life.
We know these dogs had a loving home for the last months/years of their lives.

"Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable -
they may be a bit out of shape and worn around the edges,
but they fit so well."

We appreciate any help or donations.
All donations go directly to support the dogs and their care.
Thank you for caring about rescued dogs.

All dogs adopted from Silverwalk will be neutered or spayed prior to adoption - there is no exception.
Please check out this video for a humorous yet very serious plea to spay and neuter your pet: HELP! Cat Music Video

Please EMAIL & REQUEST an adoption form. Email silverwalkhounds@gmail.com. Thank you. An application does NOT obligate you to adopt a dog but helps us get the process started
Vet and personal references are necessary prior to adoption.
Silverwalk's goal is for both the dog and the adopter to be very happy for a very long time.

Please check out this campaign link before you decide to get a dog: www.dontgetadog.com

There will be a binding adoption contract to be signed and an adoption fee of $100-$200 cash paid at the time you receive your dog.
This fee in no way covers the cost of caring for a dog till adoption
but is meant to indicate how seriously Silverwalk values life.
It also helps support those dogs who are not sponsored.
Limited transport help is available.

References are available from adopters - please ask.

Silverwalk dogs will appreciate any donations of cash, blankets, dog food, dog beds, laundry detergent, crates,
anything that may make a dog's life more comfortable as he awaits his forever home.
