Meet Mr. Bates - Transport

Introducing Mr. Bates, a distinguished pup named in honor of the esteemed character from Downton Abbey, renowned for his unwavering integrity and gentlemanly demeanor. Much like his namesake, Mr. Bates exudes an air of quiet nobility, possessing a shy yet gentle soul that endears him to all who meet him. Mr. Bates weighs around 35 pounds, a perfect blend of size and grace.

Mr. Bates delights in expressing his affection through subtle kisses on the arm or hands, a gesture that speaks volumes about his innate sweetness and desire to connect with those around him. In nervous situations, he displays a submissive nature, preferring to retreat rather than engage in confrontation.

While Mr. Bates may initially be apprehensive of new sounds or changes, as well as fearful on a leash, he is making strides in overcoming these challenges through patience and positive reinforcement. His remarkable calmness during grooming and bathing sessions is a testament to his resilient spirit and adaptability.

Rescued from the dire conditions of an illegal puppy mill, Mr. Bates has emerged as a shining example of grace under pressure. Despite his tumultuous past, his capacity for love and his gentle demeanor remain undiminished, offering hope for a brighter future in a loving and supportive home.

With his dashing charm and unwavering loyalty, Mr. Bates is sure to capture the hearts of those who have the privilege of welcoming him into their lives, where he can continue to embody the true essence of a gentleman in every sense of the word.

All our dogs are microchipped, heartworm negative, and fully vaccinated. They also receive regular heartworm medication, flea and tick treatment, and deworming medication. Adopt with confidence, knowing your new companion is ready for a loving home!


We're excited that you've found a dog or cat you're interested in! To help streamline the adoption process and ensure we have the necessary information about potential adopters, please follow these steps:

1. Understand the Difference: Submitting an inquiry or application on Petfinder is not the same as applying for the dog or cat. Inquiries provide us with minimal information about the potential adopter, making it challenging for us to evaluate suitability.

2. Submit an Application: We kindly ask that you submit an adoption application on our website to be considered for adoption. Please choose the appropriate application link below based on whether you are interested in adopting a dog or cat:

3. Be Patient: Keep in mind that we are a volunteer-based organization, and we receive a high number of inquiries and applications. Due to these constraints, we may not be able to respond to every inquiry individually. However, submitting an application provides us with the necessary information to consider you as a potential adopter.


We are based in Columbia, KY, and extend our services to other locations through our transport program. To ensure the safe and responsible transport of our animals, we currently only transport dogs to two specific destinations: Greenwood, IN, and Wilmington, OH.

To be eligible for transport, dogs/cats must meet specific criteria:

1. Approved Application: You will need to submit an adoption application for the animal and receive approval. Please also note that clicking the "I'm Interested" button on PetFinder is not an application. To start the adoption process, you need to fill out an application on our website.

2. Deposit Paid: A deposit must be paid as part of the adoption process.

3. Transport Contract Signed: The potential adopter must sign a transport contract, indicating their commitment to meet the dog on the designated date.

The 'Transport' label next to each animal's name signifies that this animal is available for transport, but please remember that this transport service is exclusively for dogs that meet the above criteria. This ensures the safety and well-being of the animals throughout the journey.

Before reaching out to us, please take a moment to review these frequently asked questions. We strive to provide you with all the information you need right here. Please understand that due to the high volume of inquiries, we may not be able to respond to questions covered in this FAQ section.

1. Are your dogs potty trained?

Unless the dog's bio specifically states that they are potty trained, you can assume they are not. Many of our rescue dogs come from challenging circumstances and may not have been exposed to housetraining. Housetraining is typically the responsibility of the adopter.

2. Do you transport to other locations?

Currently, we only transport to Wilmington, Ohio, and Greenwood, Indiana.

3. Is this cat/dog still available?

If the cat or dog is listed on Petfinder and does not have an "adoption pending" tag on the website, we are still accepting applications. However, please be aware that we often receive multiple applications for each animal.

4. How long does it take to hear back about my application?

It can take up to 10 days to receive a response from us. If you do not hear back within this timeframe, please understand that we may have chosen not to move forward with your application. We are a volunteer-based organization and, while we read every application, we may not be able to respond to each one individually.

Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our fur babies and for taking the time to review these FAQs. Your support and understanding of our processes are greatly appreciated as we work tirelessly to find loving homes for our rescue animals.
