We are a small, private rescue, licensed by the State of Missouri in June 2004. We specialize in senior dogs. We also offer Hospice care for dying dogs as space permits.

This site is dedicated to Max, rescued by Carolyn, & Lady, rescued by Connie. Both were senior dogs that were in kill shelters & were "Naturals" when visiting the care center. Because of them, this rescue was born.

We handle no more than five large senior dogs at a time. All of the dogs are completely vetted including but not limited to altered, vaccinated, dental & microchipped before being placed for adoption.

Most, yet not all, visit care centers to become familiar with medical equipment. The goal is to get the senior pets into senior homes or non-senior homes with a low energy lifestyle.

Our goal for 2006 is to have a few small dogs, under 25 lbs., 1 to 6 years of age, in our foster homes. These small dogs will be closely observed for 2 weeks before being adopted out. This will allow us, hopefully, to notice & care for any medical problems or behavior problems that may arise. Their adoptions will help provide funds for the special needs of the large & small senior dogs that wait longer to find that special fur-ever home.

Priscilla will be heading up the Mighty Mutt Youth Program. This program will focus on small, young mixed breed dogs that are good with children. After all, how will children get experience with dogs unless they have a first pet? We need to educate the young people of today to make the future better for the dogs of tomorrow.

Mixed-breed dogs make excellent pets and lifelong friends. As a general rule, they enjoy better health and temperament than purebred animals. Unfortunately, a great number of these wonderful pets await their KILL DATE in shelters around the country. They are often not adopted because they are not a purebred dog. Thus, many are DESTROYED! The goal of the Mighty Mutt Youth Program is to change that by:

1. Locating kill shelter dogs that interact well with other animals & children
2. Rescuing these young dogs before they are killed & get them to the veterinarian
3. Uniting the right family with the right Mighty Mutt
4. Educating the young person and his/her family with guidelines for responsible pet ownership & proper preventative care for pets

We operate solely on donations. We can always use towels, baby blankets, shampoo & grooming supplies. For those of you that love to garage sale & shop in thrift stores, we could use gently used collars, leashes, bowls, any pet supplies. You may mail them to the address shown below. Your donations will be used to save the lives of pets & provide veterinary care. While we are not a 501 (c) 3, we will be more than happy to send you a receipt for your donation.

We send a monthly newsletter & will be glad to add you to our list. We will also send a year end financial statement upon request. We do not pay for advertising or salaries. We rely on word of mouth to place these pets. We have wonderful volunteers providing foster care, assisting with care center visits with the pets, computer work & fund raisers. The young children who volunteer today to help with the pets will grow up to be animal lovers & advocates. We have new volunteers coming to assist almost weekly, including an obedience instructor willing to work with you so that you may keep your dog. Word of mouth in a small town spreads like wildfire. Folks love old dogs. We truly adore ALL the volunteers!
