Our Mission

Please watch our calender for events! 


You can follow us on Facebook or visit us at 

We are a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status.  Our shelter is very small made up of all volunteers who have families and jobs.  We do require home checks for all our adoptable dogs. Most of our dogs come from high kill shelters.  All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and on heartworm preventative. Saving and helping dogs is our passion.  

We are located in Missouri.  We do not adopt out of state.
