My story

Dawn (who knows the name Lucy) is a sweet girl. She was adopted back in 2016, but her owner could no longer care for her due to divorce and change of job. While in the home, she became very attached to the children and would not leave their side. She was accustomed to being groomed and having her nails trimmed. She loves to be wherever the people are and would prefer a home where she is not alone too often. She really wants a home where she can be an indoor dog, but with outdoor playtime. She is scared of big dogs but loves small dogs and is very protective of them. She can easily climb a chain link fence and knows how to wiggle her way off a cable, so a privacy fence or supervised outdoor time is needed.

Go meet their pets

The sanctuary is open to the public. We encourage you to bring along any potential fur-siblings to help pick out your new pet as well. We also hold monthly offsite adoptions at Petsmart and Petco stores in Springfield Missouri, Fayetteville & Rogers Arkansas, and at Orscheln's Farm & Home in Republic, MO. Please find us on Facebook to see where we're going next! (Schedules vary)
We don't always get a chance to check our emails throughout the day, so the quickest way to reach us is by giving us a call at 417-835-3647. Come out and meet your new best friend!

More about this shelter

We are a no-kill sanctuary for stray and abandoned dogs and cats, and for those left homeless by the death of their guardian. We provide an environment as homelike as possible with lots of loving care to our furry residents. It may take days or years, but we will always keep trying for all of the animals in our care. Volunteers and donations are always needed and welcome!
