Adoptable Dogs & Cats

When you adopt a dog from Chain of Hope, you are giving a dog a second chance at life. We bring in some of the worse neglect and abuse cases in Kansas City, MO. You will be amazed at the transformation a dog goes through from suffering on a chain to now living in your home where they don’t have to worry about when their next meal will be. They will give you nothing but unconditional love.

We do charge an adoption fee since most of the cases we bring in require extensive medical needs. The adoption fee also helps keep our doors open so that we may continue on with our mission.

Chain of Hope’s adoption fees:

  • Puppies 1 and under – $250

  • Dogs between 1 and 10 – $200

  • Seniors 10 and up – $100

  • Kittens and Cats – $85

This includes: deworming, all vaccinations, rabies tag, micro-chip, spay/neuter, heart worm test, flea & tick prevention, and heart worm prevention.

Freedom

  • White German Shepherd
  • Housebroken

"Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” – Hans Christian Andersen Meet Freedom! A white German Shepherd full of sunshine and love and could easily work a flower. Freedom was a medical release to COH as they were running free one day when someone decided to shoot Freedom for no other reason than to be cruel. The medical bills are high but Freedom's spirit is higher. They are currently in foster care and doing great despite having a cone on for several weeks. The cone will come off soon but then there will still be several more weeks of continued, strict leash walking only followed up by another x-ray. While Freedom is loved by all who meet him, he is still up for adoption for his forever home. He is kenneled trained and getting very good at leash walking. Does your home and heart have room for this growing boy? Vet says they're expecting him to reach 85lbs! Freedom has not been dog, cat, or kid tested since they've been on strict rest with their injury. No Dog aggression has been noticed on walks or through fences, so that is a good sign and he LOVES people and butt scratches. He also loves head scratches, belly rubs, and compliments but who doesn't. Finally, Freedom is still pending neutering and heart warm testing, which will be covered by COH once the vet clears him. If you think your home might be a good fit for this boy who deserves nothing but love, then please fill out an application to set up a meet and greet. View full description »

We rescued Braxton after he'd been found as a stray by a man and then put on this guy's back porch for four months. He was not socialized and scared to death when we finally got him and brought him to Chain of Hope. What a difference a month has made!! Braxton is doing so well! He loves other dogs, he loves playing in the big yard with his dog friends and he loves people! He is now fully vetted and ready for adoption! Braxton is a big boy! He's probably pushing 75 lbs and is all puppy. He wasn't taught anything, but has learned so much since being here. He just needs a little polish and to continue to gain confidence. He is crate-trained, obedient, extremely handsome and most of all, deserving! A foster home would benefit him greatly! He'd be a great doggie companion if you have a dog that needs a friend to play with for awhile.

Tina is currently in a foster home with two other dogs and doing great! She is coming out of her shell and blossoming into a fantastic dog. She loves going for walks, house trained and kennel trained. Tina lived in a chaotic environment prior to coming to Chain of Hope. She is incredibly shy with new people and takes some time to warm up. She would do best in a home with another dog and a fenced yard. Tina is kennel-trained, weighs about 50 lbs. and we think she is about a year old. She will need someone with time and patience to help her gain confidence.

  • Housebroken
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

June Carter is a young (2-3 year) Weimaraner/pit mix who has lived quite a life. How she ended up at Chain of Hope is pure dumb luck. June was an abandoned/surrender, she was found living a life of solitude in a pee soaked room by a friend of COH. COH was full so June was snuck into the program by a stealthy foster volunteer. June went from emotional neglect to almost unlimited love in her foster home. She had a good life at some point as she knows her basic commands, is kennel trained, and house broken. As with almost all COH dogs, she could use some refining around the edges. June has a healthy amount of energy and would love an active house with either daily exercise or a furry sibling who likes wrestling and playing as much as she does. Currently she is the queen bee in her foster pack. After dominating at backyard wrestling, June is the biggest cuddler and has taken on the nickname June Bug. Aside was her happy personality, June is a stone cold fox! She Will melt her with her tan coat and matching golden eyes. Please submit an application if interested. Not cat tested, dog friendly, she would thrive best with older kids as all June level food is fair game. **Local Adoption Only - Kansas City Area** Adoption fee includes deworming, all vaccinations, rabies tag, micro-chip, spay/neuter, heart worm test, flea & tick prevention, and heart worm prevention.

Gabe just completed heartworm treatment the first week of October and he's ready for a forever home now. He loves people and other dogs - his feelings about cats are mixed. He'd probably do best in a home without cats. He's a super sweet dog that loves being close to his people. He's rather large (80 lbs) and will take up at least half of your couch when he gets comfy. He gets nervous in the car but his foster mom is taking him on short car rides to fun places to help overcome that fear. **Currently in a foster home with another dog and doing great. **Local Adoption Only - Kansas City Area** Interested in meeting Gabe?

Tank is a volunteer favorite at Chain of Hope! He absolutely LOVES people of all ages and does well with female dogs. He is not good with cats though. He's pretty laid back and is a great snuggle buddy. He's very particular about getting his meals on time and will complain to the manager if dinner is late. He's not picky about what is served though! **Local Adoption Only - Kansas City Area** Adoption fee includes deworming, all vaccinations, rabies tag, micro-chip, spay/neuter, heart worm test, flea & tick prevention, and heart worm prevention.

You're probably looking at my pictures and wondering "WHAT?" Well, let me explain. My name is Star and I am a senior girl that was neglected for a while. But as always, Chain of Hope came and saved the day. I am a little pitty hippo, but who doesn't like a little extra lovin? I am so extremely happy that I have been saved that I show appreciation to everything! I'm a super star on a leash and love to go for walks. I am house trained and kennel trained but don't really need one. I am good with people and love children. I do need eye drops in one eye twice a day and I take a pill for my thyroid but I don't mind at all. It's no problem for me!

Update on Franny. She is currently in board and train at The Pet Connection in Beloit, KS and doing fantastic! They have her playing with other dogs and enjoying every minute! Hi, I'm Franny! I am a 2 year old cattle dog mix that has been in some tough situations. I have been bounced around from house to house and was never given the love I needed. I was scared, confused, and didn't know what was happening the day that Chain of Hope came to rescue me. Little did I know, that was the beginning of a new life for me! It took me a few days to get acclimated. I was terrified and no one had ever showed me love before, so I didn't know what it felt like. After a few days, I allowed some of the Chain of Hope people in and I have been a different dog ever since! I am still slow to warm up to strangers, but I am definitely learning to trust people and that they are there to love me. I love to give kisses and sit in your lap, just to show you how grateful I am! I am full of energy and love to play to fetch and would make a great running partner.
