Meet cuties Rhett (black and white little guy) and Scarlett (all black gal). These two were found together in a nearby neighborhood. Sadly, no one has come looking for them and they have been at the shelter for quite some time. If you can provide a temporary home, please let us know!


Rocky (bottom pics) and Bullwinkle (top pics) are turning out to be even more adorable than we ever thought! Just look at these gorgeous boys. Sadly, they are still waiting for a forever home. The shelter is no life for any pup- please consider taking them home for the holidays (you can foster them you know!).

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! With the holiday season in full gear, we hope that everyone takes a minute to think about the homeless pets that would LOVE to experience the security that a real home brings. If you don't want to make a long-term commitment, please consider fostering a pup in need (it's only temporary). If you think someone else will do it, unfortunately they won't. These precious pups need you- call Allison at 901-240-9848 if you can help!

This is the latest on Midnight from his foster mom up North!:

"It is going very well! He fit right in, and is so friendly and affectionate. He has already formed quite a bond with our son, and follows him everywhere! I have attached some pictures for you. I can say, we will be adopting him. He is just so good, we can’t believe it. I would say his foster home did a great job! Thanks you so much!"

Here's the latest from Brady & Brandy's new mom (who happens to be Jane's new foster mom too!).

"In September, we adopted Brady & Brandy from Arkansas who are the best dogs ever! Brady is our first ever male dog and I imagine he acts just like an active little boy -- about 5 years old! Brandy is much quieter and has had a few skin issues-- which are getting much better lately. You might think three dogs were plenty... but we decided that helping out Lucky Pup Rescue in Kennebunk was more important than our furniture. So, this past Saturday, Jane the Beagle (mix) came for an extended visit. We are actually her foster parents... and she is the sweetest dog imaginable. And, it's really OK that she and Brady act like crazy things and tear around the house. It gives Brandy a break.

Brooke (also pictured) is again in a snit over a new dog in the house. But, she'll get over it. It only took her two weeks to get used to Brandy and Brady... so we figure Jane will be fine in a week, tops. Eventually Brooke will be best friends with Jane. It's just a matter of time.

Thanks so much Sherry for helping out with yet another Marion pup!


Ollie is doing FANTASTIC in his foster home. He is such an "easy pup" as fosters go. He has not had any accidents at all and he stays in the kitchen on his dog bed. Ollie adores Ashley (and vice versa). He wants to romp and play so badly (his foster lets him play in a confined area under supervision since he still needs to rest a few more days following his neuter). This boy is absolutely wonderful. He would be such a great family dog- very playful, but gentle. Ollie is about 7-8 months old if we had to guess and he weighs 30 pounds (not likely to get too much bigger we don't think).

Ladybird is one lucky girl! Bobbie (Silverwalk Hound Dog Sanctuary; drove from Cape Girardeau to Hayti, Missouri, on Saturday to meet one of our volunteers in order to foster her. She is in wonderful hands with this angel. Bobbie has fostered many of our Hound pups in the past (in fact, she still has our sweet Oxford and Scout). Ladybird is still available for adoption. She would absolutely love a quiet, stable home life. The vet thinks she is about 4-5 years old, so she is ready to curl up on a cozy dog bed! Ladybird will work on socialization while with Bobbie as well as hang out with her pack of mostly hounds :) Feel free to call or email if you have any questions about this beautiful girl. This is the latest from Bobbie:

"Here is more WOW - she is very communicative: she often wants me to go outside. She will stand and watch me. I then said something to her, she twisted her head to listen, then hopped around, going to the steps and back towards me till I followed her outside. She didn't seem to want me to DO anything, just be w/her :). She gave me a play bow this afternoon in the house. I gave each dog a treat in the pack this evening, trying to teach them to wait their turn and remind them, no sit, no treat. She was watching - took her a bit to get a sit; I had to touch her butt but the second time, she went right down after watching another dog sit and get treated. This is a lovely, very intelligent dog whom I LOVE."
