Hercules was found as a stray with an embedded collar (meaning the collar had cut into his neck). After many attempts to catch him, he finally came to us. The collar was removed and he slowly began to heal, both the wound on his neck and the one in his heart. He is still wary of new people and situations, but he has come a long way. He does well with most other dogs and cats. If this is the pup for you, go to our website - Click on the link to the application, complete and send. An application will put you at the top of list for consideration.

We do adoption events in the St. Louis area every weekend. Please submit an application on our website: or check our facebook page for details. So many pups seeking a home, so little time - we have many more dogs and pups coming up every weekend than are on the adoption sites. We post a list of the dogs coming up every Friday evening on Facebook.

To Adopt or arrange a meeting: Go to our website - Click on the link to the application. You are not obligated to adopt, but please - if you change your mind - give us a call so the pup we are holding for you can find a home.

Housetrained? That depends on you. Even a dog that has been housetrained in their previous home will need to learn your schedule and how to communicate with you. For your dog to be successful: use a crate, go out with your dog, praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.

Adoption Fees: We take cash (and we love it) credit cards and checks. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back give a full refund in the first week. After 7 days, we will take your puppy back and you can consider your adoption fee a tax deductible donation to a very appreciative organization. To hold a pup longer that the earliest possible delivery date, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit.

About Diana's Grove Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are one of many grassroots animal rescue groups. Grassroots. Caring for abandoned and unwanted dogs consumes our time, energy and financial resources. You might wonder why we do it. Here is why:

I believe that each one of us is called to do what stands before us to be done. You might be called to stand up for your political beliefs or devote your resources to your church or your spiritual work. You might be a volunteer and provide necessary community services. Some of you, like me, care for abandoned dogs, cats and other animals...just not at home or not so many at home. Like you, I do what I can. Our land and our staff enable us to do what stands before us to do; we take in abandoned dogs.

We live in a rural area with limited resources. There are very few services for people and none for unwanted dogs and cats. There are no local vets, animal care facilities or doctors. When we get a call or see a dog wandering on the roadside, we decide what to do. Should we say yes or should we acknowledge our limitations and be realistic? Here in Cabool, MO I can’t kid myself. The next solution isn’t coming down the road behind me. If we don’t do it, no one will. The dog that we don’t take may well die a slow, lonely death in the woods. If at all possible, we take the dog. We provide medical care, food, shelter and lots of love. In order to continue our work, we must find homes for the dogs in our care. Yes, we are a no-kill shelter, but the dogs that we can’t take don’t live in a no-kill world. Every dog that we place means another dog can live.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We will be PetCo in Chesterfield every Saturday from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm and Sunday from 11:00 am to 3:30pm. We bring about 65 dogs and pups to meet you. A list of who is coming is on our Facebook Page on Friday. We will announce our PetCo Adoption days on Facebook as well.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee varies for each dog and is listed with the information about the dog. For each adoption, we request that an application be completed along with an adoption contract. Both of these items can be found at in the center column.
