About Our Rescue Group:


This site supports a small group of people who try to help as many puppies and dogs that have been displaced through no fault of their own. All of the dogs are checked by a vet, altered and updated on all vaccinations prior to going to a home.

We are all volunteers who do the best that we can with the limited funds and resources available to us. We give the potential adopter as much information as we can, including copies of all vet records but we normally do not know the history of the dogs, as they are strays at the pound. Very rarely do we have owner releases. All dogs in our program were minutes away from being put to sleep so the pound could make space for more strays.

Come Meet our Pets:

We will be at Rural King 430 Oberlin Road, Elyria, OH 44035 from 10 - 1 the second Saturday of EVERY month.
Please check our website at www.mbrohio.com for additional locations and events we will be attending.

The dogs listed on this site are located at various foster homes throughout Ohio however. We do not have a shelter therefore anyone wishing to visit one of our dogs must first complete an application and be an approved adopter for that dog.


Please make a note that the majority of the dogs are being kept in Elyria Ohio. We do not transport our dogs, you would need to come to Elyria to meet and possibly adopt.



NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE

Our Adoption Process:

Due to recent events we use discretion when adopting to a home with children under the age of 5 and to an adult under 23. This does not mean you are automatically disqualified but we may require additional information.

The adoption fee for all dogs listed depends on the breed, age, vet care, cost to pull from the kill shelter, worming medicine, flea medicine, etc. The adoption fee BARELY covers all of the previous mentioned expenses. Please do not ask for us to lower the fee.


All adopters must fill out an application. Please see listed below an application. You may copy this application, paste into an email, fill it out completely, and send it here to be processed.

Adoption Application

We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for any reason if we feel the needs of the dog will not be properly met or the adoption is not in the best interest of the dog.

Please make sure you completely fill out the application before submitting it to us. Missing information will delay the process and false information will result in your application automatically being denied.

The application and adoption processes are designed to match appropriate homes with appropriate dogs. While many dogs may be attractive to the eye, we are very careful to understand the lifestyle of each adopter since we clearly understand the individual needs of dogs in our care.

We do not ship dogs; we require that the applicant come to meet the dog and us before an adoption will be finalized.

Our goal is to place dogs in happy, forever homes where the adopting party and dogs are both winners.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
