My story

This boy is AMAZING! He is currently living in an office due to being so amazing and us being out of space. Ole Jack is house-trained, crate-trained, and enjoys rolling around in the grass! He needs a home without other animals. However, this boy is will be so thankful and provide you with so much love in return! He is a senior and is very calm except when he does his happy dance which is the cutest thing ever!. Update: He went to a short-term foster and did amazing and was such an easy house guest the foster said!

Ole Jack is an older fella but he still has energy! He absolutely loves to go on walks with volunteers and has been opening up more and more here at the shelter. We've learned he LOVES butt scratches and will lean into you so much that he tips over! Ole Jack has this grumpy looking face and just makes everyone smile because it really doesn't match his personality. On a recent day trip he enjoyed strolling through the park, eating peanut butter cookies, and feeling the breeze on his face while hanging in the front seat during the drive. If you are looking for an older guy to adopt that will just enjoy going on walks and cuddling up afterwards then Ole Jack is the dog for you! You'll just need to supply a lifetime of butt scratches. :)

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Some dogs are at the shelter and some are in a foster home. If the dog you like is at the shelter, please contact the person listed. She will fill you in on all the details. If the dog you are interested in adopting is currently in a foster home, please EMAIL the individual "Foster Parent" noted in the description.

An Adoption Form Questionnaire will be emailed back to you. Upon completion, email the application back to

After review, we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come and visit with the dog in the foster home. If the adoption is appropriate, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

A nominal adoption fee is charged for each dog. This fee includes a vet check, all shots, any necessary medical work and medication, spay/neuter (if possible and appropriate). All of our work is volunteer. WE MAKE NO PROFIT ON THESE ADOPTIONS. This fee does NOT include those additional things we supply while the pet is in our care e.g. pet supplies, food, toys, grooming, training, etc. (plus a heck of a lot of hugs!)

More about this rescue

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997 in order to save shelter dogs that need a foster placement.

We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

The reasons for fostering include:

  • Orphans too young for adoption
  • Nursing mothers
  • Mildly sick/injured dogs
  • Dogs that have been abused
  • Dogs that can not adjust to living in a shelter environment
Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue and a local shelter work together to place these dogs in temporary, loving foster homes. When you adopt from us, you are helping to save a shelter dog!!

Our Goal is to save shelter dogs in need and place them in good homes. To promote the placement of special need dogs with the help of adoption bags, grooming, socialization, and providing needed supplies. To pair the right dog with the right human companion(s), enriching everyone's lives.

Our Mission is to develop trust and love with a dog that needs to be reminded that many humans can and will take good, loving care of it for the rest of its lives. To then find loving homes for these previously abused, abandoned, sick, neglected and confused dogs. To give the dog a solid re-start with behavior, health, and trust. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters.
