Dumped Dogs shelter came about after years of working with Dogs - as a Groomer and Private Rescuer of Dogs. Many of our friends and relatives were constantly finding dogs and sending them to us...
Often times we would come home to dogs tied to our gate or puppies left in rubbermaid containers on our porch. We are proud that God has blessed our passion for saving his dogs - and we are now in a location where we can offer our Shelter Dogs for adoption to the public.
Dumped Dogs is currently seeking 501c3 Status
We are currently registered with the Department of Agriculture as a rescue shelter - and are hoping our 501c3 will enable us to fund-raise more effectively so that we can help more dogs!
WE are a private shelter...WE serve a very under-served community in a rural area where dogs are often "Dumped" - thus the name!!
WE also take in former breeding dogs from the Amish Community. We have advertised in their shoppers that we will take in breeding stock that were formerly euthanized when their breeding days were over. The response from the Amish Community has been very favorable!! Thanks to our friends who have a rapport with this community - we have been able to educate them that their "Livestock" still has many good years in them. Though rehabbing and socializing them may take a little time - they are often some of the best adopted babies because they are so grateful to be loved!
WE DO offer spaying and Neutering from our vet at a reduced cost of $100 for Neuters and $125 for Spays -for all of our adopted dogs. We also offer pick-up and Delivery for the dogs the day of surgery. Cost for spay and neuters are in addition to the adoption cost.
WE also work with the SNAP - Spay Neuter Assistance Program who helps our adoptive parents get their dogs altered at a reduced rate.

He called looking for a beagle and JackRussell mix. His name was Damen and his own Jack/Beagle mix had just died of cancer a few weeks ago at the age of 13. "And she was the best dog ever!" he said on the phone - his voice trailing of - full of emotion and memories. Being a Jack Russell enthusiast myself, I had to agree. "Jack mixes are awesome!" I said.
He asked about other dogs too that he'd seen posted on our website. But the little girl in question had not yet made it to the web page.
" My friend, Mark,got a dog from you a couple of years ago," Damien said. "He's bringing me down because I wasn't afraid I might not find the place. ". He told me, " Mark assured me you folks always have such nice dogs for adoption. So we'll be down tomorrow evening and we'll see her?" he asked. And I told him that would be fine.
By the time Damen and Mark made it down to the shelter, we'd already had a banner day. Lots of adoptions and preparing for a big weekend of placements already in the works. When he said he was there for a beagle I had to think about it for a second....YES!! I recalled at once and ushered them back to meet our Jack and Beagle mix girl in the back yard. He asked that I let a few other possible adoptables out at the same time so he could pick or see who picked him.
His friend Mark, whom I recognized as a former adopter, and I watched as the Jack and Beagle mix followed Damen around as if she knew that he was there for her. The other two small beagle mixes were friendly to Damen, but did not share the same desperation for love as the little Jack mix girl who would not leave his side.
" I think it's gotta be this one," Damen said. "She is just as cool as Jessie - the girl I just lost." He then recounted memories of his love of 13 years - and how she'd slept with him and ridden in the truck with him everywhere...and how she would greet him on the days when he got home from work- if she didn't get to go along.
"She got sick and she did me the best favor ever by passing before I had to make that hard ride to the vet. " he said - holding the little Jack-Beagle mix girl and stroking her head. "I gave her the best funeral, too. I dug her a big hole in her favorite corner of the backyard- and wrapped her up in her blanket she always used to lay on..." he continued. "Then I put her three favorite toys in her blanket and buried her with her head resting on her pillow." He kissed the top of the little girls head and sat her down on the ground and watched her race around the yard.
"I have lots of room and live on a dead end road..." Damen told us watching her. "She's really perfect for me..". I couldn't have agreed more.
For as I watched him leave with his freshly bathed new companion - I heard him tell his friend who had brought him "I'll bet she'll be the best dog ever! ".
