Areas 7 Bells Sanctuary Serves

We serve Cole Camp, Benton County, Missouri and surrounding areas. We do adopt out of state as long as the adopter comes to our location or to the foster home.

7 Bells Sanctuary's Adoption Process

Our goal is to find the right placement for each pet. We never want them to be hungry or unwanted again. We will answer every question to the very best of our knowledge and always be honest when it comes to the animal's suitability for a home. We want to make sure that you get the pet that will suit your special needs and that you will be able to meet the special needs of your pet.



Senior citizens and disabled receive a discount.
We also offer a discount to those in uniform keeping us safe.


Land of the free because of the brave.
May our Lord wrap His Bubble of Protection about those that serve

May He comfort those left behind waiting, worrying & grieving.




The adoption fee ranges from $150 to $300.

The fee is based upon veterinary care, age & size of dog.
In addition as noted above we do make special arrangements for Senior citizens, the disabled and our military families.


The higher adoption fee on the younger small dogs helps care for the older dogs that take longer to find fur-ever homes.




Our adoption process begins with the e-mail or phone call to us. We will be asking for your complete name, address, telephone number, your veterinarian contact information and at least two personal references. We will then call you to ask a series of questions.

About 7 Bells Sanctuary

We are a small, foster home based rescue, licensed by the Mo. Dept of Agriculture in June 2004. We specialize in senior dogs.



We also offer Hospice care for dying dogs as space permits.



This site is dedicated to Max, rescued by Carolyn, and Lady, rescued by Connie. Both were senior dogs that were in kill shelters and were "Naturals" when visiting the care center. Because of them, this rescue was born.



We handle no more than two large senior dogs at a time. All of the dogs are completely vetted including but not limited to altered, vaccinated, dental & microchipped before being placed for adoption.



Most, yet not all, visit care centers to become familiar with medical equipment. The goal is to get the senior pets into senior homes or non-senior homes with a low energy lifestyle.



Our goal for 2007 is to have a few small dogs, under 25 lbs., 1 to 6 years of age, in our foster homes. These small dogs will be closely observed for 2 weeks before being adopted out. This will allow us, hopefully, to notice and care for any medical problems or behavior problems that may arise. Their adoptions will help provide funds for the special needs of the large senior dogs that wait longer to find that special fur-ever home.




We are working on the Mighty Mutt Youth Program. This program will focus on small, young mixed breed dogs that are good with children. After all, how will children get experience with dogs unless they have a first pet? We need to educate the young people of today to make the future better for the dogs of tomorrow.



Mixed-breed dogs make excellent pets and lifelong friends. As a general rule, they enjoy better health and temperament than purebred animals. Unfortunately, a great number of these wonderful pets await their KILL DATE in shelters around the country. They are often not adopted because they are not a purebred dog. Thus, many are DESTROYED! The goal of the Mighty Mutt Youth Program is to change that by:


1. Locating kill shelter dogs that interact well with other animals and children


2. Rescuing these young dogs before they are killed and get them to the veterinarian


3. Uniting the right family with the right Mighty Mutt


4. Educating the young person and his/her family with guidelines for responsible pet ownership and proper preventative care for pets




We operate solely on donations. We can always use towels, sheets, baby blankets, shampoo and grooming supplies. For those of you that love to garage sale and shop in thrift stores, we could use gently used collars, leashes, bowls, any pet supplies. You may mail them to the address shown below. Your donations will be used to save the lives of pets and provide veterinary care.



In 2009 we became a 501 (c) 3. Your donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.




We send a monthly newsletter and will be glad to add you to our list. We will also send a year end financial statement upon request. We do not pay for advertising or salaries. We have wonderful volunteers providing foster care, assisting with care center visits with the pets, computer work and fund raisers. The young children who volunteer today to help with the pets will grow up to be animal lovers and advocates. We have an obedience instructor willing to work with you so that you may keep your dog. Word of mouth in a small town spreads like wildfire. Folks love old dogs. We truly adore ALL the volunteers!

Come Meet 7 Bells Sanctuary's Pets

We are in a rural area five miles from historic downtown Cole Camp. Some of the pets may be in foster homes. We do not have a kennel as all of these pets live in a home environment. We are open 7 days a week by appointment.



Cole Camp is located in Benton County. Cole Camp is southeast of Kansas City about 2 hours, northeast of Springfield about 2 hours and southwest of Columbia about 2 hours. Cole Camp is located on 52 Highway, a short drive from Truman Lake and the Truman Dam. Please check out Cole Camp at www.colecampmo.com There are many places to visit while in the area looking for a pet, and some of the businesses are downright pet friendly. The Harris Guest House is a B&B which encourages well behaved pets to spend the night.
