You've come searching for a fluffy
 companion to share your life with or
for options when you can no longer
keep your Old English Sheepdog. 

Midwest Old English Sheepdog Rescue

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit rescue, our mission is to rescue stray, abandoned or neglected dogs along with dogs whose families can no longer care for them (at times bad things happen to good people & their pets) and place these pets into loving, permanent homes.

We strive to promote and encourage responsible pet ownership. To ensure humane treatment, compassion and respect for all dogs. We also strive to make a difference in pet over-population by ensuring all dogs adopted from MOESR are altered prior to adoption.  Please read our pages to learn more.

We are an all volunteer rescue. Please fill out an adoption application before inquiring about a pet. A volunteer will contact you when a pet is available that best suits your needs per your application.

Your donation is tax deductible

Placement Directors:

Nancy Hakala

Nita McCreary

  Please feel free to contact us after you've
  completed our Adoption Application.  

Foster Homes & Volunteers Needed

If you have space in your heart and home, please consider fostering! It's a great way to help with rescue, and a great way to know if an OES/dog is really going to fit into your lifestyle. Administrative help is always needed -- even a little of your time helps a LOT!
