About Our Shelter...
We are located in a rural county in the south battling animal welfare and awareness. We take in dogs in need, get them healthy and adopt them. We help as many rescues as we can. We build awareness for dogs in need and network however we can. We also run across a lot of feral dogs running wild and we rehabilitate or find other rescues who do the same. There are many dogs out here running free and hit on the side of the road. We are working on stopping this.

Our Adoption Process...
You must be prequalified to visit one of our dogs.
99 percent of our adoptions require a fenced yard If you rent or own a home. Military will need a 2nd qualified home as a backup plan. Apartment living is ok.
Our adoption fees:
Adoption fees are $175.00-$200.00. All dogs are Spay/Neutered, Up to date on Vaccinations and Microchipped.
Once adopters are approved for adoption the dog they wanted is placed on hold for pick on the available date. We will only hold for a few days after available date.
Our adults are tested for Tick born, Lyme, and Heartworm Diseases, and treated prior to adoption. Some dogs we might opt to do a slow kill and only keeping them on the monthly heartworm prevention. This solely depends on each dogs circumstances.
Puppies are given proper wormer and are only adopted out 2-3 days after their 2nd set of shot. If there's any health concerns the adoption date will be canceled till healthy. If they have coccidia we will provide you with the medication to take home. If they are due for another wormer and also ready for adoption we will provide you with the wormer to take home.
