Adoption Stories

  • A New Home

    Each year we service over 700 dogs from the city of Bella Vista. We know they would rather be at home with you.

  • Safe Enviroment

    Every day our staff interacts with each animal providing fresh water and food. Every living space is cleaned with bleach and deodorizer.

  • Microchips

    For $20 your pet can be microchipped at the shelter. This allows any vets office or animal shelter to identify the pet with a quick scan. We will also register the chip for you and update if your information changes.

  • Healthy Pets

    We are limiting the number of people entering the kennels. We encourage you to stop in and tell us what you need in a companion and we will bring the dogs to you.

Our Benefits

The no-kill shelter is managed by an elected, volunteer board. We have six full time employees and numerous volunteers. The shelter cares for over 500 dog and 300 cats a year. Animals are fed, walked and cleaned 365 days a year. All this is made possible by hundreds of concerned citizens who give so generously of their time and money. 

The welfare of the animals is our driving concern. Consider adopting  one of our animals.  We will do what ever we can to ensure that an animal can stay out of our shelter and in a loving home.

Questions

FAQ

Rescue dogs are often a mixed breed and tend to live longer. If you are looking for a particular breed, we recommend going to their particular rescue group. Even if they are not local, they will have resources. We do not recommend people profiting off their animals offspring ever.

Tuesday – Sunday 10 AM- 4PM

Visit us. We have a volunteer application for animals and events. Visit with an adoptable animal and write a bio with a hand drawn picture, and we will post it. Encourage those in your neighborhood to alter their animals.

We have found that Purina One works best with all our residence’s tummy’s.

It helps them live longer lives and keeps them at home. Animals that are not altered, tend to roam, become aggressive and of course, reproduce at an alarming rate. An average cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year.
