PLEASE NOTE! Unless stated otherwise, our dogs and puppies are located in Arkansas, and transported to the north/northeast once adopted. We do occasionally have dogs/puppies placed in foster homes in the north/northeast. In the cases where the pet is somewhere other than Arkansas, it will be noted beside the name of the pet.

2/20/16 Red is about 2 years old and was found as a stray. No one ever came forward to claim him. Red had a case of heartworms when we took him in but he has been treated and is now ready for his own home! Red is house trained (adopters should be prepared for accidents for the first few days, while he adjusts and learns his new home/schedule/expectations). He gets along well with other dogs but would do best with a female dog that is 35lbs or more, since he is a bit territorial with other males and too rough for small dogs. He would also do fine as an only dog. He is fairly energetic but very trainable. He just needs a home where he will have the opportunity to exercise, as most hounds need. He is a fence escape artist and requires a family who will never leave him outside unattended. His hound nose gets him into too much trouble and he could be gone before he knows it. Red loves all people and would especially enjoy a home where he has a chance to go for car rides - this is his favorite thing in the world and he stalks the door at his foster home, hoping to go any time someone comes in or out. :) He has the potential to be a great friend and companion for the right person. Red is located in Arkansas but out of state transport is available. For more info, email

About Adopt-A-Stray - MA

About Our Rescue Group...

Adopt-A-Stray Rescue was founded in Jan. 2010 by Kelley Prichard. Kelley saw a need for the unwanted pets at the local Animal Control to be given a chance at life. Adopt-A-Stray is a non profit (pending) Rescue group. We routinely pull dogs (and sometimes cats) from the euthanasia list at our local kill shelter. We also take in strays and owner surrenders as space/resources permit. Most of our available pets are located in ARkansas and are transported to the northeast once they are adopted or have a foster home to go to. The transporters we use most often are Got Orphans Transport ( and Alpha Dog Transport ( All pets are given age appropriate vaccinations and are seen by our vet prior to going to their new homes. Please email for more info on our adoption procedures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Call for an appointment. Since we dont have a physical shelter, it is important that you call or email before trying to meet the pets. We have most of them in foster homes, some here in Arkansas and some in the Northeast.

Our Adoption Process...

I required that all pets in the home are current on veterinary care - this includes vaccinations and heartworm prevention, minimum.
I require that every pet in the home (ok, maybe not fish and reptiles) be spayed/neutered unless there is a valid medical reason not to.
I have an adoption application and contract for each pet.
My adoption fee varies, depending on what type of pet, breed, age, and medical condition.
