Temporary change in Adoption Policy

Sadly, with the present situation regarding the COVID-19 restrictions, we need to make a few TEMPORARY  adjustments:
Effective immediately, we are suspending out-of-state adoptions longer than a 3 hour drive from our location in Bath, OH.
We will also be prioritizing the apps that presently have a fence and another dog, due to the fact that the majority of our rescues are Mill Dogs.
If you do not presently have a dog, but have a fence and are seriously willing to adopt a pair, we will also put your application on our priority list.

Please keep in mind, this is a temporary situation, but one we must implement. Our first priority is finding the right forever home for our precious rescues.
We also have to be considerate of those who step up to meet our needs by volunteering. 
We are in unchartered territory at this moment and we ask you to be patient as we navigate through the ever-changing restrictions being set by our state to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Emergency Plans for Your Dog

Golden Retriever Adoption and rescue

Pete: Male, 13 years old

Pete - we’re trying to help this old guy find a forever home. His owner has just passed away. He’s a 13-year old who looks to be a cocker mix, Golden in color. He weighs about 50 lbs.  Any room at your house?

If you're interested in Pete, please fill out our online adoption application



Champ: Male, 7 years old

Champ - isn't he a great looking dog? He's 7 years old and has spent his life in a puppy mill. But things have changed for the better and he's now a Golden Treasure, loving life in his foster home, and learning to play ball--his new favorite thing. As goldens go, he's a big fella. As with all our mill dogs, he requires another dog in the home and a fence.

Boomer: Male, 3 years old

Boomer - sometimes we get a dog that's hard to read.  Boomer is one of those dogs.  He is very sweet but gets nervous.  We originally were told he was some sort of doodle but now think he could be an Irish wolfhound mix but we have no way of knowing for sure.  He is 95 lbs and is 3 years old.  His new requirements include a quiet adult home.  He'll do OK with most other dogs, but no cats.  He was in a home that had too much activity and it frightened him, causing him to nip.

If you'd like to seriously consider Boomer, please fill out our online adoption application




Emily: Female, 9 years old

Emily - At 9 years old, this cutie is looking for a new home since her owner died.   We're looking for a special home--one without cats or small animals.  Emily is blind and diabetic. Emily should be ok with 1 other dog who is a senior and/or quiet.  Or, she'd love being an only dog.  Can you help her on her way?

If you're interested in Emily, please fill out our online adoption application
