Our Featured Pet...

Faust is the happiest little goober. He is a 4yr old Bully that we think is Pit and Bulldog judging by his short, super stocky, hippo appearance. When he came to the rescue he had severe Dermodex which caused a bacterial skin infection. Through all of that he never ceased to show off that adorable bully smile. His hair is still growing back in, but he’s making leaps and bounds of progress from where he was when we got him. Faust loves his toys and even likes to carry them around on walks. He walks well on a leash, but does get very focused on other dogs he sees. He is still working on his manners and could definitely use some more obedience work with his new family. He loves being near his people and doesn’t know a stranger. We do not know how Faust is around kids, but he does like to jump and gets a little mouthy when he gets excited so he would be best with older children. He does have a grade 4 heart murmur, but is not currently taking medication. He likes to be the dominant dog and would do best with female dogs. We do not recommend that Faust go to a home with a male doggie brother. He seems to do fine with cats, he is curious but has not tried to chase them.

Our Mission:

To save the lives of Ohio's homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, and provide necessary medical treatment, safe shelter, and a loving, dedicated forever home.

To promote the safety and well being of domestic animals, including the need to neuter/spay, and give guidance on the responsibilities associated with being a pet owner.

To educate the public on the inconsistencies and failures of animal rights enforcement, including laws, abuse, shelters, puppy mills, etc., and assist law makers with educational tools and information to enact proper regulations for Ohio's needy animals.
