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

Ellie: Female, 4 years old

Ellie - she's a four-year-old mill mama. What a blonde beauty she is! She's doing very well in foster and her favorite pastime is playing with the male golden in the home. She requires another dog in the home and a fence.

Teddy: Male, 3 years old

Teddy - this handsome guy is another puppy mill entry. We're finding that he's great with other dogs and his favorite pastime is playing. He needs a little work walking on the leash, but it won't take long, once the weather figures out what it wants to do. He requires another dog in the home and a fence. Did I say he's 3 years old?

Boomer: Male, 3 years old

Boomer- Isn't he handsome? He's a 3 year old doodle who lost his home because of a divorce and needs to find a new home. His favorite thing to do is hang with you. We call that a Velcro dog. He's good with kids and dogs, but hasn't met any cats. A big, tall fella (87#), he'll need a fence and a canine friend to keep him company.

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?
