​About us


We are a non-profit 501c3 canine rescue, licensed in Kansas and Missouri, dedicated to helping save the lives of dogs in desperate situations such as being in high kill shelters and owner surrenders from Kansas, Missouri and surrounding states.  


We are always in need of foster homes in Kansas and Missouri.

Please contact us or check the volunteer tab above to fill out a foster home application.


If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill out the adoption application. Out of state adoptions are considered on a case to case situation, and are not guaranteed.


If you are surrendering a dog, please contact us and we will send you an owner surrender form. All owner surrenders require current copies of vaccinations.


Saving dogs from shelters usually costs hundreds of dollars per dog, and many dogs we save are in poor health with parasites such as heartworms. We appreciate any donations towards our efforts!
