What Sets Heart Dog Apart?
- Heart Dog is run entirely by volunteers and has no paid staff.
- Every dog lives in a foster home as a member of the family while they prepare for their transition into their forever home.
- Every dog is fed high quality grain free food.
- Every dog is given a full medical and behavioral evaluation and treatment if needed prior to becoming available for adoption.
- We use only force free training methods.
- Every adoption includes a free group class at Courteous Canine.
- We screen applicants thoroughly and process applications quickly.
Foster homes are the backbone of rescue. Because we do not have a shelter facility, the number of dogs we can save is limited to the number of foster homes we have. We are always in need of foster homes. We provide everything including medical care and food!

If you have a talent and a love for graphic design, we need you! We are in need of a volunteer to help design professional quality printed materials such as banners, business cards, brochures, and t-shirts. Think you might be a good fit? Please contact us!
Featured Adoptable ~ Miss Molly Moo Moo
Molly is an 83 pound laid back girl who loves to snuggle with her humans and relax on a soft bed. She is completely potty trained and doesn’t chew inappropriate things. She is a blast to be around and loves to play ball. She has the cutest underbite ever that is guaranteed to make you melt into a puddle of love!
Molly originally belonged to a homeless man who she dearly loved. The man became sick and went into the hospital, and our friend Nikki was kind enough to provide a temporary home for Molly. Unfortunately, the man never came out of the hospital and Molly found herself in need of a new forever family. Molly was heartworm positive and had a cherry eye. Our friend Nikki started Molly on the slow kill heartworm treatment method prior to coming to us. When she came to us, we continued with the slow kill method and she tested negative for heartworms this April! We are also happy to report that thanks to generous donations, we were able to have Molly’s cherry eye repaired. Molly is now completely healthy and happy and ready for her forever home!
Molly is about 3 years old, spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, dewormed for intestinal parasites and up to date on heartworm and flea prevention. Her adoption donation is $200 and includes a free group class at Courteous Canine.
