About Our Rescue Group:We are a team of three that intends to do anything within our power to change the world for as many dogs as we can. We rescue in memory of those we did not save. OUR MISSION ---The mission of SW MO K9s is to locate homeless, needy, unwanted, and abandoned dogs, then search for and place these deserving souls in rescue or a forever home instead of sending them to be euthanized in a shelter. The dogs we have posted are in foster homes or in other holding facilities. If you are interested in learning more about, or adopting, any of the dogs, please email Connie, Sherry or Rhonda at SWMOK9s@yahoo.com. You can call Sherry at 609-332-0357 or Rhonda at 417-827-3205.
Come Meet our Pets:All of our dogs are in pounds or in foster homes waiting for their forever family to claim them. Contact us at SWMOK9s@yahoo.com for an appointment to meet any of our dogs.
Our Adoption Process:Dogs are pack animals and do not do well away from the other members of their pack. The adopter is the alpha member of the pack, and the dog or puppy needs as much one-on-one contact with the alpha as possible. For this reason, all SW MO K9s dogs are adopted to inside homes only. Thank you for understanding we want only the best for the dogs we place in your home.
Because dogs are never safe out on their own, SW MO K9s are adopted to families who agree to keep them leashed at all times they are outside, unless they are confined within a secure fence. We do not want our dogs running in packs or dashing in front of traffic. They are safe when they are confined or leashed. All dogs are to be returned to SW MO K9s if the adoption does not work out.
A home visit is required. When we visit, we are looking for a pet safe, and a pet friendly home. We want to see if other pets are congenial with the new adoptee.
The adoption fee is the vetting fee which is usually $100. This includes spay/neuter, parvo/distemper shots to date, and rabies vac. Additional vetting may increase the fee.
