ALTHOUGH MANY PEOPLE CARE FOR DOGS, WE CARE FOR MANY PEOPLE’S DOGS. The Mission of our Shelter is to provide sanctuary & safety to the stray or abandoned Dog, the neglected or abused dog. To provide a No-Kill sheltering option for those in need. We also provide a “Voice of Decency” here within Ladonia for other related humane and human issues. A “Shelter” for those citizens in the “Silent Majority”. With a goal to advance Ladonia through volunteer projects and new thinking. “Helping Dogs” as they teach humans.. To Educate in the proper care/control and feeding habits of our four legged friends, and demonstrate leadership without the need of government powers. To improve the quality of life and restore PRIDE for both humans and dogs.
We do not accept Surrendered Dogs, we will not accept your Dog. If you rescue a Dog, it is yours, Not ours. We have to many in-need and cannot help all. We have a waiting list for Rescues. We are here for the Stray Dogs, not a rejected Pet or the feel good moment of being a one-time Dog rescuer. You may report to us about a dog in need, but do not bring it to our doors.
During the years 2010-2012, our Shelter rescued and re-homed over 175 Dogs. We have aided over 250 dogs in the past 36 months in this community and others,,, most returned home safely well fed and given collars, many others were provided No-kill sheltering. All of our Dogs are Free Adoption, but screening is required, before any Dog is adopted. We will accept Donations.
We accept all Types of Dog products such as food, treats, cleaning supplies and Cash for Vet care. We also are looking for your Ideas to improve Ladonia. We are aware the Dog Problem is simply an indicator of a larger cultural problem and need your help to solve those issues if we are ever to solve the problem with Stray Dogs. Please send your inputs to us @ email@example.com
Our favorite dog poem:
FOR A STRAY DOG: (Dedicated to Lolly “RIP”) Your wistful eyes searched each one as he passed, Stray dog-so lost, so starved and starkly thin, And yet your gallant hope held to the last That there would come a heart to take you in.
Some came who yelled at your bewilderment, Some kicked you or threw things till you’d gone, BUT, Oh more cruel was the one’s who bent and petted you, and murmured quietly and walked on. CHARLOTTE MISH
