We are a 100% foster-based rescue, which means all of our dogs live in approved foster homes (we do not have a shelter). We are dedicated to finding the best Forever Homes, and therefore will perform home visits as well as conduct veterinarian and reference checks for each potential adopter. We do not adopt on a first-come, first-serve basis and it is our right to approve or deny any adoption application. Adopters must be at least 21 years old and live within one hour's drive of St. Louis, MO. If you would like more information about one of our dogs, complete the Adoption Application and the dog's foster parent will contact you as soon as possible.
