Helping Beagles & other hounds find homes,
one at a time
(or two if you wish)

Silverwalk Hounds is a foster home for Petfinder listed rescues needing help to save Beagles, Coonhounds, and senior dogs. . I seek to share, promote, crosspost, and champion Beagles, other hounds, and senior dogs in need. All dogs are spayed/neutered and up to date on shots. Since Silverwalk Hounds is a sanctuary, both the remaining dogs AND any formerly adopted dogs from Silverwalk Hounds in need are welcome to stay for their natural lives.
Please adopt or foster.

Perryville, MO

Silverwalk is a small, home based dog sanctuary just outside of Cape Girardeau, MO
specializing in the fostering of Beagles & senior dogs.

Founded in memory of Goldie, Oliver and Emma, the first 3 rescue dogs of my adult life who are now entertaining God
Inspired by 7 Bells (Cole Camp, MO)

Thank you for your trust w/these dogs - please adopt, donate, foster so others may be rescued, fostered, and live.

We look forward to helping you adopt
our wonderful dog and directing you to those for whom we foster.

All Silverwalk dogs live in and out of the house with access via a dog door to the yards/field.
All dogs are up to date on shots and needed medical treatment
as well as receiving basic obedience training.

The wonderful vets at Dogwood Veterinary Hospital, and LaCroix Pet Hospital in Cape Girardeau
make sure these dogs are healthy, wealthy in spirit, and perhaps wise :).

"arrooo arrooo!"

Please see Raggedy Ann, Elvis, and others
who are waiting at the Rainbow Bridge under Happy Tails/RIP.
Because we also have senior dogs,
we must acknowledge that death is a part of life.
We know these dogs had a loving home for the last months/years of their lives.

"Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable -
they may be a bit out of shape and worn around the edges,
but they fit so well."

All dogs adopted from and through Silverwalk Hounds will be neutered or spayed prior to adoption - there is no exception.
Please check out this video for a humorous yet very serious plea to spay and neuter your pet: HELP! Cat Music Video

Please EMAIL & REQUEST an adoption form. Email Thank you. An application does NOT obligate you to adopt a dog but helps us get the process started
Vet and personal references are necessary prior to adoption.
Silverwalk Hounds's goal is for both the dog and the adopter to be very happy for a very long time.

There will be a binding adoption contract to be signed and an adoption fee of $100-$200 cash paid at the time you receive your dog. This fee may be adjusted by the rescue sponsoring the foster dog at Silverwalk Hounds.
This fee in no way covers the cost of caring for a dog till adoption
but is meant to indicate how seriously Silverwalk Hounds values life.
It also helps support those dogs who are not sponsored.
Limited transport help is available.

References are available from adopters - please ask.

Silverwalk dogs will appreciate any donations of cash, blankets, dog food, dog beds, laundry detergent, crates,
anything that may make a dog's life more comfortable as he awaits his forever home.
