About Us


Did you know? 

On top of pulling dogs from euthanization lists and high-kill shelters, LuvFurMutts also takes in a lot of dogs whose owners have died or have been hospitalized and can no longer care for their beloved companions. 

We know many of you cannot have or do not want a dog permanently. However, if you would like to try fostering (all medical expenses/needs covered), please contact LuvFurMutts today and visit our website at 


Adopting A Friend

If you would like to meet a dog that you are considering adopting, we REQUIRE you to first fill out an application. Please read below for ALL the details.  Applicants must be 21 years of age and live within our adoption radius.

LFM has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs. We do not operate under a first-come, first-served model. 

As an all-volunteer organization, it may take up to a week or two before everything is finalized.  Please know we do our best to process adoption applications as quickly as possible.  We appreciate your patience in the process!

Visits to meet available pets are by appointment only and an application is required before we will set up an appointment. This saves both us and you time by allowing us to check your references and get your application approved before your visit is scheduled. Once you are approved to adopt, we will set up an appointment.

If you are planning on meeting an adoptable dog at at adoption event, please submit your application ahead of the adoption event you plan to attend so we have time to review it prior to the event.  This is important as we do not do same-day adoptions. Also, be sure we know you are coming to see a particular dog.  We do not have enough volunteers to bring all dogs to events.

LuvFurMutts reserves the right to deny any application. We will let you know whether your application is approved or denied. 

Adoption Radius

We do not adopt dogs to adopters that live further than three hours out of our area (*also note, on some particular dogs, we do not adopt to adopters that live further than an hour out of our area, such as puppies that may need to come back for vetting and would be noted in the dog's bio). 

We define our area as a 3 hour drive time from Cincinnati, OH using zip code 45231 according to Google Maps below (not based on how fast you can drive the distance). If you are not sure if you are further than four hours or not, please use our map below for your convenience. This rule is for the safety of our dogs – we need to be sure we can get our dogs back quickly in the event an adoption doesn't work out. 

Adoption Fees

Our adoption donation is $200 and is tax-deductible.
LFM does not charge higher fees for purebred dogs, puppies, or dogs that have had extraordinary medical expenses that far exceed the $200 adoption fee – we depend on donations to help us cover those costs.

We accept cash or checks made payable to "LuvFurMutts Rescue".

Prior to Adoption

Unless health or age reasons prevent us from doing so, every LuvFurMutts' Dog has:

-Vaccinations up to Date (Including Rabies)
-Is on Heartgard
-Is on monthly flea protection
-Had a Dental if needed
-Been Spayed/Neutered
-Been Microchipped with 24 Petwatch microchips and free lifetime
registration is included
-Been tested and is Heartworm Negative
 *All dogs over 5 receive pre-op blood work. This lets us know if the dogs have liver, heart, kidney, etc. problems*

Please note, LuvFurMutts Rescue cannot guarantee age, breed(s) or adult size of the dog. We do our best on their bio based on our veterinarian's assessment. Thank you for understanding!

Who We Are

LuvFurMutts, a 501c3, is a volunteer-based animal rescue that operates a foster program which re-homes unwanted pets to caretakers of all ages; in particular to seniors. Our goal is to offer a loving home to all pets and to provide care to those pets in need of medical attention. We provide education and promote awareness to the general public to control the pet population through spaying/neutering and adopting animals from shelters rather than breeders and puppy mills.

LuvFurMutts is an all-volunteer rescue run solely out of foster homes. We do not have a facility for you to come and visit our dogs, but we would love to see you at our adoption events where you can meet them! 

Our number one goal is to save as many dogs as we can.  If you would like to help us in this mission, we are always in need of volunteers, foster homes, donations or goods.  

Thank you for your time and remember, mutts need love, too!
