Make Adoption Your Only Option!!

Meet Levi! He's a 2 yr. old, neutered male Border Collie Mix.  He's currently being fostered in Des Moines so he can get the training he needs. Levi has a lot of energy, so additional training was needed to teach him some manners & how to walk on a leash...he's responding great, learning quick!  He's learned quite a vocabulary of commands!     

He's not aggressive at all, he's playful & friendly, gets along great with other dogs, kids, even cats!  He'll make an ideal pet for that active family (going camping, jogging, walks, etc.) always on he go!  He's a happy-go-luck guy, he loves to run & play...especially fetch, it's one of his favorite games! :) He really aims to please & loves to snuggle...he'll make a very loyal and sweet companion!

This June marks a year Levi has been with our rescue, he came to us when his family moved & he was left behind.  We'd love to year with a happy tail of a new family Levi can live with knowing the comforts of a good loving home.   

If you feel you can give Levi the home he needs, please contact us at, or FB, thanks so much!! :)

Adopt a Puppy

If you'd like to adopt a friend from Dog Gone Rescue, please contact us to arrange a time to meet the animal you are interested in and fill out our application.  Our adoption Fee is $75.  We look forward to meeting you!

All of our adoptable animals are heartworm tested, up-to-date on all vaccinations, including FIV & FeLk for cats.  State law also requires any animal adopted from Dog Gone Rescue be spayed or neutered within 90 days of adoption; however we strive to help control the pet population by trying to neuter and spay all of our animals before putting them up for adoption. 

We've just recently started microchipping all of our pets as well to prevent them from ending up back in the shelters/pounds. 

We are a registered non-profit and rely solely on private donations.  The Adoption Fee will help us pay for many things: Vet expenses, food, kennels, dog houses, pet beds, leashes/collars, etc., basically items to keep them happy, healthy and comfortable until adopted.   

To apply to adopt an animal from Dog Gone Rescue, please print out our application, complete & email, fax or mail back, thanks!




I'd like to thank everyone that has been putting money in our donation jars, mailing in personal donations, as well as donating food & wonderful pet items, such as toys, collar, leashes, pet beds, treats, even costumes!

It's absolutely wonderful to know I have such heartwarming and generous support to keep helping these really does make a difference, thank you so much!!!
