We are an all volunteer organization and as such do not have the manpower to respond to phone calls. Stray dogs are handled by the Lucas County Dog Warden (419) 213-2800 and abuse/cruelty concerns are handled by the cruelty officers at the Toledo Area Humane Society (419) 891-0705. We do not operate a shelter and all of our adoptable dogs live in foster homes throughout the community. To inquire about adoption you can check the schedule for our adoption events on the Calendar Page of this website or email to apply to adopt.
