Who We Are

Our mission is to help dogs in the economically devastated areas in the Ozarks. We are a St. Louis based organization whose facility is in southern Missouri.  Our priorities are mom's and pups, pregnant dogs, dogs from families who are coping with loss or financial devastation, and dogs in Animal Control facilities in the small towns around us who face euthanasia.

We strive to provide a better life for our rescued dogs and in the process build ties in our community and better the lives of everyone who adopts. 

Last year we took in 1557 dogs. We make weekly trips to the St. Louis area. To see our schedule, visit TakeAFriendHome.Org.

"We take dogs from horrible situations you could never imagine and put them in loving homes they could never imagine" - Cynthea Jones

Come Visit Us

We are in the St. Louis area every Saturday with 65+ Dogs looking for homes. We understand that many people are busy on Saturday's and we are willing to work with anyone interested in adopting. Send us an email at dogs@takeafriendhome.org and we can send you pictures of dogs and pups looking for a home. Potential Adopters are always welcome to visit us at the shelter, but it must be done with an appointment.
