Adoptable Dogs

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

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

Let me introduce myself… I’m Ben. You know, some dogs need to be surrounded by friends, but me, all I need is a life long companion. What can I say? I’m needy and want all the love to myself, but there’s a reason why I’m selfish with my love. You see, I was found at a low point in my life at a young age. We won’t get into details, but let’s just say I had it rough and was found by some really, awesome people. Now that I am older, I have the right to say I am a searching to be the main squeeze in someone’s life and to be a little selfish, which is why, I prefer no competition with other animals or kids. That being said, I am ready to give all my love to a special someone. I am obedient and know how to sit, stay, and what down means, and I know that we only potty outdoors. I love car rides, walks, and LOVE to play fetch. With an abundance of activity and love to give, what more could you want? Ideal Match: My ideal match will understand I have only child syndrome. I’m not looking for doggy, kitty, or human siblings. My ideal match would take me on car rides and walks and give me some cuddles in between. In the summer, I would love to have a kiddy pool, but we can talk about that when it comes time. I want a companion that sees me as their one and only. I promise once you get to know me, you wont need another. Chain of Hope’s adoption fee is $200.00. This includes: deworming, all vaccinations, rabies tag, micro-chip, spay/neuter, heart worm test, flea & tick prevention, and heart worm prevention. If you are interested in adopting Ben, please submit an application on our website and one of our volunteers will contact you. https://chainofhopekc.org

Hi, I’m Keys. I’m a fun loving, extrovert, who is interested and curious in about everything! I love to play, go on walks, and take naps. My favorite thing to do is to see how tiny of a “dog donut” I can become. For being a big guy, about 70 lbs, you would be amazed at how small I can get. You should see it! When I’m not being a world champion dog contortionist, I’m being incredibly goofy and making people laugh. As for new people and animals, there truly are no strangers, just friends I haven’t met yet. One thing my foster momma wanted to let everyone know, I enjoy a good bro session. While I love the everyone, bro sessions are really cool. Also, I’m not fond of vacuums, but that’s because I don’t know why they are needed. I’ll help you clean any food that is dropped. Since I do try to be a doggy iRobot, trash cans are kind of interesting to me, so you may want to keep them out of reach. Ideal Match: Number 1 requirement- must love dogs! Mostly because I’m a dog but then I also love dogs, so if you love dogs that means that hopefully we can hang out with MORE dogs! I hear there’s this place called the dog park that is filled with dogs! I may like to give that a try one day! Aside from friendship and being active, I mostly just want lots of attention and someone who understands I’m still learning to be a dog. I need someone who has patience in refining my manners, but I’m a quick learner. I promise to be your best friend, to keep the floor clear of all food debris, to never potty in the house, and if needed, be an excellent wing-man. I’m here for you! If you are interested in meeting Keys please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application. Once we have received your application someone from out team will be right with you. Adoption fee includes: deworming, all vaccinations, rabies tag, micro-chip, spay/neuter, heart worm test, flea & tick prevention, and heart worm prevention. Local adoptions only please!

Hi, my name is Eileen, but some call me Beauty Queen Eileen, whichever you like. I got my name because whenever I came to Chain of Hope, both legs on one side were broken from getting hit by a car. Do you get it… I Lean. HA! Anyways, more about me… I'm a fun, energetic gal, who LOVES fetch. I could play fetch for HOURS! When I’m not bringing a toy to your feet, I would love a lap to lay on or a nice bed to take a nap on. I’m such a happy girl that I am always wearing a smile and expressing my emotions with my ears. I think my smile and my beauty marks is why I have the nickname Beauty Queen Eileen. What do you think? Ideal Match: My ideal match would be someone (or someones) active. I am fine with doggy friends, as long as we get a proper introduction, but cats are a no go for me. They are kind of weird in my book. I’m also good with kids, but let’s meet so we can become friends first. Another trait my ideal match would have is probably a good throwing arm, so we can play fetch a lot. Did I mention how much I like to play fetch? If you’ve got a good arm, lets meet and I can put it to the test! (Just look at my video.. I even bring the toy back.. As long as you make sure to throw it again.) If you are interested in meeting Eileen please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Hi, I’m Levi and the one thing you need to know about me… I am the happiest boy EVER! I have a lot of energy, but I also LOVE cuddling. I will cuddle ANYONE. I currently go to doggy day care and dog parks and have a lot of fun with it! My foster mommy says I should tell you that I am completely house trained (no indoor potties going on here), leash trained, and I know sit, shake, and “kissy” (I’d be willing to show you if you want). I have a goofy smile and it comes out with I get the zoomies. I LOVE zoomies! I also love to hop up and down when I get excited. Don’t worry, not on people, just to show that I am ready for the next adventure! Maybe one day I will beat the world record for doggy vertical! Since I am so athletic, I would need a wood fence over 4ft. I just get a little interested to see what’s on the other side. While I am excited a lot, don’t forgot I also LOVE to cuddle, and I am quite the charmer. Apparently, I’m the most handsome boy this side of the Mississippi. I’ve got references, just ask. Ideal Match: Honestly, my perfect match is a doggy friend and someone who loves to cuddle. I'd love a doggy friend around my age to play and cuddle with, but pretty much any age will do. My human must also be ready to laugh constantly, because I’m funny and they better be prepared. So, if you’re ready for a handsome, funny, loving, and goofy dog, I’m your guy!

Hi, I’m Divet. Before I came to Chain of Hope, I had a pretty rough life. I ran around in the cold a lot, I’ve had quite a few babies, and I’ve got a bad eye that’s being removed 2/18/20. While I may be one eyed, my other eye is a beautiful brown that will make you swoon! I don’t need two eyes to get you the best puppy dog eyes out there. I am the perfect medium size dog at about 55 to 60 pounds, but I look much smaller. Let’s just say I hold my weight well. I love being indoors, playing with my doggy friends, and meeting all the wonderful volunteers. I get so excited to see new people when they come in and love to get petted. I, also, love to give hugs! While I love Chain of Hope, I can only imagine what a home of my own would be like. I love other dogs and kids, and I’m fine with cats! I do this really cute snoot when I cuddle in close. It’s just my way of showing how happy I am to be near you. Honestly, as long as I can get lots of love, I am happy! Ideal match: Since I had a rough start, all I want is a loving family. I am fine with any kind of siblings, I just hope they will play with me when I get my spirts of energy and allow me to cuddle. While I do like to play, I don’t need a ton of exercise; just a little bit to keep my pretty figure. Since I am a medium size, I would be great with kids, small dogs, or big dogs. Honestly, if you want a loving companion that is young and is extremely affectionate, I am your girl!

Hi, I’m Bear, I’m about 7 years old, and I’m looking for a new home. You see, I had a home with a loving dad that took me on walks, but recently he passed away. Luckily one of our neighbors saved me and asked Chain of Hope if I could come stay with them, and they said “Yes!” At first, I was pretty nervous, but after a few days I realized all the people here are really nice and I get to hang out with some cool doggy friends. Right now, I’m hanging out with the senior dogs and we all get along great. I love all the volunteers here too. They will sit on the floor with me and I like to sit as close as possible to get pets. Since I’ve been at Chain of Hope, I’ve met a lot of amazing people and friends, but I am ready to be back in a home. I like other doggy friends, kitty friends, and kids, and am just looking for a nice place to lay my head and get some good rubs. Also, did you see how pretty man smile is? Everyone here calls me handsome, what do you think? Ideal Match: My ideal match would be someone who will let me sit with them and pet me. While I would be fine with siblings (dog, cat, or human) its not a necessity for me. I also really like walks. I used to go on walks a lot and would love to go on them again. Honestly, I’m just looking for a home filled with a lot of love, and I promise to add even more love into the mix.

Just look at my pictures; see my beautiful eyes and my little smirk… that’s me and my name is Chop. I’m an 8 month old, charming boy, who loves to play. Right now, I spend my days playing with my friend, Eileen, in the yard and giving the best doggy eyes to charm the people at Chain of Hope into giving me treats. When Eileen and I play, we love to chase each other and play tug-o-war to see who’s can win. Even though she is a more experienced player, I can hold my own. Since I am a young pup, I do have quite a bit of energy, so I’m always up for playing, but once I get my energy out, be prepared to be smitten with my beautiful markings and my striking personality. My friends took me to Bar K and a couple hours there and I’ll be asleep in your lap in no time! Ideal Match: Since I am a young boy that has a lot of energy, I would either love a doggy sibling that will play with me, or a very active family. I would love to big back yard to run around in. I would also be great at being a running buddy, with some training of course, but I am ready to learn! Another thing I would like in my furever home…. TREATS! I love treats, but you can definitely make me work for them. That’s fun for me! If you are active or have an active doggy that needs a play friend, pick me! I promise to be the bestest, cutest, most loving, and most charming boy around!

Hi, my name is Polly. I was an owner surrender to Chain of Hope, because I was in sad shape. I’m pretty skinny and my eyes hurt a lot, but the nice people at Chain of Hope are nursing me back to health, and while I am a pretty girl already, but am getting more and more beautiful as I am getting better. All the people at Chain of Hope tell me how beautiful I am, so I know my spirits are raising quickly. While I am a little nervous, I am still the sweetest girl around. I’m just happy with all the love and rubs I am getting right now. I am starting to perk up and show my personality, I am a fun loving girl. I’m a little shy around new people, but once I sniff you, I will be ready to receive all your love. Since I’m only 5 years old, I am ready to live the good life! Ideal Match: My ideal match would just be a loving home. I am fine with other people and dogs, but maybe more of a low-key lifestyle. I do like to play at times, but I really like to just hang out – maybe a little Netflix or Hulu binge sessions. I would totally be down for a binge and cuddle session. Now that I have my eyes clear, I am much happier and would am looking for maybe a little bit more activity, but I will always be down for cuddles.

Have you ever seen a more adorable puppy? Probably not. I’m Pancake. I have the best puppy dog eyes that you won’t be able to say no to. Personally, I think I could be a puppy model, what do you think? Anyways, since I am young, I am still developing my personality, but right now, I am playful and love to be held. I, currently, am the first thing volunteers see when they walk into Chain of Hope and I make sure to put on my best puppy dog eyes to get all the love. I am good with other dogs and cats, which would make me the perfect puppy for any family, and I would love a home and family of my own. Just look at my pictures, it will be so hard to say no. Ideal Match: My ideal match would be someone (or a family) that will be my furever home. I want to grow old with you! I love to play, but I also love to cuddle. Since I am a puppy, I would love to learn some skills and some cool tricks, if you are willing to show me. I also know that potties are for outside, but my bladder is a little small. So if you can teach me how to potty outside, that would be awesome! I’m ready to learn all the fun stuff of being a dog, and if you teach me, I will teach you how to be a world class cuddler! **Keep checking back for more updates and pictures of this adorable puppy, Pancake.

Hi, I’m LeeLa and the one thing I love, is a good belly rub! Right now, I can’t really walk up to people very fast due to a broken leg, but I am sure to roll over to people when they come to me to show them that I’m looking for a good belly rub. The volunteers at Chain of Hope have been raving about how sweet I am, and I can’t really disagree. While I don’t have too much energy right now, I am young, so I imagine once my leg is healed, I will love to play. In the meantime, I will enjoy all the extra love I get from the people at Chain of Hope. Ideal Match: Right now, I’m on the disabled list, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from loving me. I don’t mind cats and I hear I may meet some dogs soon to see if I like them. I’ll make sure my people update you on that. I do know that I want a family that will give me tons of love though and I promise to give them a belly to rub. **Keep watching for more updates. My friends will update frequently.
