is a non-profit all volunteer organization that specializes
in the rescue and adoption of dogs and puppies
Founded in 2003, DogsOnly has already rescued, fostered,
and rehomed many adult dogs and puppies.
In addition to the work being done in Arkansas DogsOnly
supports rescue and rescue efforts throughout North
America by providing support and assistance to national
dog rescue transportation groups.
How We Operate
DogsOnly does not have any kennel premises, so the dogs
that we rescue and rehome stay in their own homes until
we can find them a new permanent home or alternatively,
they stay with some one you find to foster them as we
do not have any foster homes. We try and help dog owners
have options other than the "free to good home"
We also will try and help you place your dog even if
you are turned away by local shelters or rescue groups
because they do not have space or because your dog has
special needs. Our goal is to provide an option for
people needing to re-home their own dog or a stray that
has not been reclaimed.
We offer free website posting to advertise
your dog for adoption, free showings at adoption events
at local pet stores, reduced cost vaccinations for puppies
and adults for adoption, referrals for reduced and free
spays and neuters, free ivermectin treatment for heartworms,
free digital photos that can be posted to our website
for those that do not have cameras or computer equipment,
free copies of applications and contracts for adoptions
to assist in finding the right home and free advice
whenever you feel you need it.
We feel it is very important for the general public
to be aware of what happens to some pets who are
away for free in the paper. Some of course go to good
homes, but the problem is that some do not. Some
taken in by people called "bunchers" who
go around and collect free dogs and turn around and
them to research labs for $20-$30 dollars a peice.
Your family dog deserves a better life and it is up
to make sure they go to a good home. Some bunchers
even take women and children with them to make it
your dog will be a family pet. Don't fall for this.
Unless they have a fenced yard and you have done a
by, checked their vet reference, do not adopt to them.
Other dogs end up as "Pit Bull bait" where
dogs are trained to fight and kill, and your family
dog has just turned into its next victim. DogsOnly
is here to give dogs the right chance at finding
also strives to offer help and advice to any dog owner
who is experiencing problems with their dog. We try
to educate and inform in a friendly and constructive
manner and if we are personally unable to help, we will
do our best to find someone who can.
Everyone involved with DogsOnly is a
volunteer. We have a number of trained volunteers who
look after dogs or pups until new permanent homes are
found and we have a number of other volunteers who help
with transportations, adoption events, fund-raising
events etc. If you think you might be interested in
becoming a volunteer, please visit our volunteer’s
The number of adult dogs and puppies
that DogsOnly can foster is very limited, so we strive
to promote the efforts of other rescue groups and in
so doing help prospective adoptees to locate their new
