Abigail Rose

Please read my story and help find me a home...

Abigail Rose has been with us for over 3 years. She is so sweet, we love her very much! She has a few issues steming from being in a shelter kennel for so long. The kennel she is in is only 10 feet by 3 feet and she only gets out a few times a week. You can imagine how she must feel. She has been here so long and is way in the back kennel, she has seen so many dogs go to homes and would love to be amoung them. She will require patience while she gets used to living in a real home but the effort that you put in at first will be tremendously rewarding. She is a loving, good dog. From what we can see in the shelter environment she is not too good with other dogs, however a lot of times dogs behave differently in a home environment than the shelter where the number of dogs is so high. Please consider this wonderful deserving dog! She is mostly housetrained but will require a potty schedule when she first gets home from the shelter so she gets into a habit at her new home.

Who We Are


STAFF was built originally to house our Thrift shop and for our animals that are up for adoption. Our Thrift store is the main monetary base for the animals we rescue and for our ongoing spay/neuter financial assistance program that benefits our area animals. Our volunteers and staff are few but mighty. Those interested in helping should come to our building on Hwy 5 just south of the Morgan/Camden county line or call us at 573-374-2629. Memberships in STAFF are available. S.T.A.F.F. is a Missouri licensed animal rescue group dedicated to enhancing the life of our area animals. We support an ongoing spay/nueter program with financial aid available on a need basis. We are located just inside the northern edge of Sunrise Beach, MO. on Hwy 5.

Our adoption fee is $50 - $300 for dogs, and $40 for cats. The higher adoption fee on the young, purebred dogs helps offset the expenses on the large and small mixed breed dogs that wait longer for an adopter. While our personal belief is that all dogs should be treated equally, we must face reality. Given a choice, mutt over purebred, same smaller adoption fee, the mutts will generally be left behind.

You will receive a healthy friendly pet. All our animals have been treated for fleas/ticks, been wormed, received vaccination and rabies shots and have been sterilized unless too young. For the young ones, we require sterilization and we cover the cost.

As you can tell, the adoption fee does not cover all the expenses we have on the animal. STAFF pays the remainder of the costs by operating a thrift shop.

Come Visit Us!

STAFF is located just south of Laurie, MO. on the east side of Hwy 5. We are 1 and 1/2 miles south of the Route O intersection (main stoplight in Laurie). This is just south of the Camden/Morgan county line and at the northern edge of Sunrise Beach, MO.
