What can we tell you about lovely Patricia that's not evident from her video and photos. She is wonderful example of what can go right when you rescue an abandoned puppy found on the side of the road to die.

She's been at our sanctuary since her rescue as an abandoned puppy. Our vet's initial guesstimate of her age when we found her was about 4 or 5 months of age. We've given her all her needed shots and spayed her. Then set about gaining her trust. She acted out the way many neglected, abused dogs do by biting, barking, tearing things up, and being the instigator of many scuffles. Patience, firm loving hands and voice, and (silly as it may sound to you) explaining what her place in the pack was has made all the difference. Today she is a completely different dog, although she still has flashes of mischief now and again.

Patricia has some heeler, border collie and maybe even pit bull in her--it is impossible to determine. She stands 34" at the top of her head, current on shots and weighed 76 pounds at last checkup. She loves being outdoors, in front of the fireplace or a/c - depending on the weather and is a terrific watchdog. She will do best in a home without small children or grandchildren (under ten) as she is very strong and will usually greet you with her full body weight - we call it the Patricia tackle.

If you have room in your life and heart for this amazing little lady, please call today. (870) 431-8354 or email We'll be happy to tell you how easy it is to apply for adoption and rescue Patricia. And we can even transport her to a location near you for a small fee.

About Perry's Orphans Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Perry's Orphans provides rescue, adoption, and a NO KILL haven for endangered, abandoned, and unwanted pets.

In operation for more than 15 years, rescue is all our dear founder Mr. Perry A. Boore did - seven days a week. Tragically we lost Perry March 2, 2015 after he suffered devastating injuries rescuing animals from a house fire. But his work is carried on by his daughters Deborah Duran and Carla Colby. Both maintain Perry's Orphans Sanctuary numerous web sites monitoring email traffic and sending updates for the pet listings for the organization. Deborah is currently on site at the sanctuary in Arkansas.

Come Meet Our Pets...

If you are interested in seeing any of our puppies or dogs, please call or email first before coming to our sanctuary. We will also meet you in the local area for a face to face pet meet. If you have children or another dog in the house bring them along so they can get to know each other too. We will do what ever we can to assist you in finding your new companion.

Your donation does help to offset some of the costs associated with spaying and neutering; heartworm testing and prevention; basic vaccines and parasite control; and shelter upkeep where applicable. Also, there are many dogs that come to us with problems that have expensive veterinary bills, i.e. heartworm treatment, broken legs, mange.
After adoption we are always available to assist and advise our adoptive families in every way we can. Our adoption policy allows you to surrender the animal back to us If for any reason an adoption does not work out.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Guidelines:

• We never allow any dog under the age of 12 weeks old (3 months) to be adopted. This ensures the animal is current with all shots/treatments such as DHLPP or DAPPV +4Way LEPTO (for Distemper prevention), Drontal, Ivermectin, Rabies vaccinations, Heartworm prevention, De-worming, Grooming care, and safe, personal transportation to you. AND most importantly is spayed/neutered before going to a new home.

• Fenced in yard is preferred for anyone adopting a dog and required if adopting a puppy. Note up to 1 year in age is considered a puppy.

• Veterinarian reference is required.

• All current dogs and cats in the adoptive household must be spayed/neutered prior to adopting from Perry's Orphans Sanctuary.
