Our Current Fosters

We often foster dogs from the Pottawatomie County Humane Society and Animal Doctor in Junction City. We also help various citizens in our area who can no longer provide proper care for their dog(s). Please check back frequently and feel free to come meet them! All our fosters can be found on PetFinder.

Adoption Resources

According to the ASPCA, "Five out of ten dogs in shelters and seven out of ten cats in shelters are destroyed simply because there is no one to adopt them." Save a life, save a rescue, support your local shelter!

Great things about adopting:

You get to interview your new friend - most shelters let you spend a little time with your potential adoptee so you can make sure he/she is a good fit. And since most shelter dogs aren't puppies, you can get a good feel for their personality before you commit.

Many shelter dogs already have some training - It's not unheard of to find a dog that's already housebroken and knows some tricks! Although you shouldn't expect this to carry over to their new home right away, it can make retraining incredibly easy.

It costs less - Most dogs at the shelter are already spayed/neutered and up to date on their shots. If they aren't, many vets in town will give you a discount on these services for adopting. You're saving a life - Feel great about taking your new friend home to its new happy comfortable life!

Things to keep in mind when adopting:

Make a choice that fits you - If you like to spend your weekends curled up by the TV, it's probably best to stay away from dogs with high energy and dogs bred for hunting. On the other hand if you're looking for a new running partner, a snuggly dog may not be your best bet. Do some research on breeds to get an idea of what might suit you - but keep in mind breed guidelines don't always fit specific dogs, especially mixed breeds.

It will take some time - to get your dog settled into its new home. Keep in mind that your new friend doesn't know what's happening and he/she may assume your house is another temporary placement. Some dogs will display behavior issues in the beginning because they are scared! It's usually nothing that a lot of love and a little training can't fix.

Use all your resources - If you and your new friend are having some trouble adjusting, don't forget that there are ALWAYS resources available. You can obtain information from your local vet, trainers, rescue organizations and area pet stores. Don't forget doggy daycare! A tired dog is a good dog.

If adopting is not for you, you can still support your local shelter with donations of money, food, bedding, toys, treats, or really anything related to pets!
