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.

To adopt an animal, please see our

Hi, We are Birdie and Zeke - the bonded pair house cats of Chain of Hope. We have lived at Chain of Hope for years and have loved being the top cats in charge. We have met many dogs, cats, and people throughout our years at Chain of Hope, but its time for us to retire. The constant changing environment is starting to cause us to stress a little bit, so its better for us to get into a home together and have a little peace and relaxation. (Clearly retirement!) Birdie is a cross eyed, female yellow tabby that is as sweet as they come. Zeke is a male grey tabby that is truly the boss, but becomes quite the softy for cuddles and Friskies lil soups. They are both pretty independent, but love to be cuddled with and sometimes held. They are great with dogs, other cats, and all people. View full description »

Hi, I’m Vega and I am a cute little, feisty puppy – with a little bit of a limp right now. Before I came to Chain of Hope, I was stepped on which caused by back right leg to break. But according to the doctor, I just need to wear my cast for 6 weeks and my leg should be as good as new! Since I am so young, there’s a lot of sleeping, pooping, peeing, and playing… and repeat! I am now in a foster home and am doing great. I am learning to be a dog with my foster brother and love getting attention from my foster family. I am around another dog and cat and am doing great. My foster family will continue to watch my leg and provide me with the needed tools to be an amazing girl!

Hi, I'm Luna and I am a one year old, beautiful white pit that is looking for a new family. See my family didnt want me and put me on the streets. Luckily, I was picked up by Independence Animal Control, but I was so terrified and my guard was up. How could my family do that to me? Once Chain of Hope found out where I was, they brought me into their program. I was nervous at first, but I am such a lovebug now! I am still a little timid and might let out a bark or two, but once I know you are good, I am as sweet and loving as they come! I just need a bit more polish and to gain a little bit more confidence that I can trust again. I keep a clean kennel all night and love other dogs. I love to play hard, but will crash as soon as I am done and will relax. I also listen very well and would love to learn more tricks - as long as treats are involved (wink wink).

Hi, I'm Franny! I am a terrier 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, but I am definitely learning to trust people and that they are there to love me. I am good with other dogs and am so excited to find my new forever home. I love to give kisses and sit in your lap, just to show you how grateful I am! I love to play with other dogs and would love a doggy sibling.

Hi, I’m Toffee! I am a young pit mix puppy that has the most beautiful eyes. I am around 9 months old snd was not socialized well before being surrendered. While I am timid at first, I’m also learning to trust and that good people bring butt scratches and treats! I’m a great medium size and love other dogs. Other dogs definitely make me feel more at ease and I love to play and follow their lead. While I do loved other dogs, I would be okay by myself as well, it just might take me a little longer to warm up. If you are looking for a young, beautiful, playful girl... look no further!

Have you heard about Beans A.K.A Beano? He's just a good boy with a rough past looking for a place to rest his head and his heart. He comes from a house of neglect and has just blossomed into the happiest boy that is just so grateful for the attention and snacks he's been receiving in his foster home. Beans is full grown and house trained. He's somewhat kennel trained but has been left out with his foster pack with no noted destruction or accidents. He's pretty nervous about new activities but with some more work he will become the best walking buddy or ride around town partner. Beans is eager to please his foster parents. Beans is most comfortable with female humans and would do best in a home with grown children and another dog or 2. Beans has really begin to trust his foster dad but still has unsure moments, thank you previous POS owner for that. If you'd like to schedule a meet and greet, fill out an application via @chain_of_hope_kc . Beans is currently scheduled for heartworm treatment at the end of April but after that he will be good as new only requiring a metric ton of affection and butt scratches (which he deserves) #chainofhope #fosterdog #beano. #adoptdontshop If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Hi, I’m Junior and I am the cutest senior beagle you will ever see! I am about 9 years old, but am just as happy as can be now that I am at Chain of Hope. I am completely blind in my left eye and have sight in my right eye, but with daily eye drops, the doctor hopes to keep me comfortable and for it not to progress. Trust me, my eyesight doesn't slow me down. I LOVE people and am good with dogs and cats, but my FAVORITE thing is going outside. As soon as that door open to go outside, I do the cutest little happy run (or so I am told). Sunny days are truly my favorite! I am such a good boy and would love a warm bed, a sunny yard, and a family to love me. If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Hi, my name is Apollo! You may have seen some of my photos when I was first rescued by Chain of Hope. My story and the pictures were pretty sad, but I am healed and love to be around people. See back in the winter, Chain of Hope was called, and I was almost frozen to death. I lived a life outside (even during cold months) and when it was in the negatives, I basically was frozen and extremely malnourished. Luckily, Chain of Hope was called just in time and they came to save me. I was rushed to the vet and given medicine to save me. I was on my road to recovery and I sent the first few days being hand fed by the Chain of Hope team and sleeping on an elevated, heated bed. Within a week or so, I gained over 10 pounds. I was also heartworm positive and last week, I went through treatment and am feeling so much better! Now that I am healthy and a good weight, I am ready to find my forever home! I am a very loving boy and super smart. I am house trained, kennel trained, and I love to be around people. I do need a home with no cats and no dogs, but would be the PERFECT companion for someone looking for an only dog. I have so much love to give! I love when the volunteers some see me that my tail goes in circles like a helicopter! If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Sherlock is the name, and playing in my game! I am a one year old pitbull mix with the cutest brindle on my feet. I was surrendered by my owners and was really confused and nervous at first, but with the help of my best friend Indi, I am gaining more confidence and know I am safe. I lived in a house for a while, so if you’re wondering if I have basic obedience, no need to worry! I can sit, stay, shake, come, down, fetch and drop, AND I am kennel trained, potty trained, and leash trained. I know, I’m the full package. I am also good with kids and other dog (just not small dogs. I like to play with doggy friends my own size). I am extremely smart, playful, cuddly, and loving.

Buddy has quite a story. Once a street dog, now a well behaved little man. It took us with the help of others many, many months to catch this boy. He is so smart and crafty. Regardless of his history not trusting people, he is a very sweet, gentle boy. He is smaller around 50 lbs and loves to be next to his person. He is currently in a foster home with a 9 year old child and two other large dogs. Buddy can be nervous when meeting new people, but he warms up to everyone he meets. He will sometimes tuck his tail or let out a small growl which we are working on in his foster home where he meets lots of new people.

Hi, I’m Denny! I’m a cute smaller Shepard/Pit mix that is about 6 years old. While I am about 6 years old, I still look young and have the energy of a pup! You see, Chain of Hope has been a part of my story for a long time and finally, after a lot of time on a chain outside and a month at KCPP, I’m here! Since my life has been a little rough, it took me time to warm up but now, I’m beginning to trust people. I love to play and absolutely love sausage biscuits, peanut butter, and squirt cheese. Let me tell you, I’m very food motivated and will learn quickly with some extra treats! If you’re looking for a medium size dog that can bring lots of fun and energy to your mix, definitely look at me!

Hi, I'm Fritz. I am an 8 year old Rot/Lab/Shep mix. The first 8 years of my life I was stuck outside either in a pen or on a chain. It was pretty rough, but I knew as soon as Chain of Hope came, my life was going to change! At Chain of Hope, I was able to run around and play and I haven't stopped smiling since. I am currently in a foster home and loved going on walks. I am a pro at walking on a leash. I am a little dog selective, but cats don't bother me at all. If you are looking for a big guy to take walks with, I am just the one! I would love a home with some land to romp around on. I love going on hikes and I LOVE car rides. *Currently in training with The Pet Connection *Fritz is in a foster home with two cats and doing great *Good with cats and other dogs *Not good with children If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Hi I am Bruiser. I am a 2 year old American Pit Bull. Ever seen a pitbull listen with tilted head and raised ears of what? Why? Well I am a pro at it, but I am just trying to understand. My favorites things are being next to my person snuggling or on an adventure. I love to swim, and I can even paddle board! Paddle boarding is one of my favorite things to do. New places and car rides are a close 2nd though. Also, do you disc golf? I understand being behind the disc already and getting better at learning the rules. I don't really bark unless you need to go somewhere without me, or to let you know that I need to go out to potty. I stop when I realize I can relax in my dog bed while you are gone. I tend to have some sepperation anxiety but I relax more and more everytime you come back to love me again! I am not destructive, I just want to be by my person. Whether its chill'in on a bed at home while you work or riding in the car. If you are looking for a loyal side-kick? I am your person. I play hard, so of course, I rest hard. I will cuddle on the couch or in bed, and I only snore a bit! I am kennel trained but do not need it. Overall, I do well being the only pup with a lot of attention. I will create a happy home for someone with energy and is active. I promise to give tons of kisses and love to the perfect family who gives me time and wants a companion. **Needs to be the only dog **Children above 12 years **Local Adoption Only - Kansas City Area** **Needs to be the only dog** **High prey drive** **Muzzle trained** Adoption fee includes deworming, all vaccinations, rabies tag, micro-chip, spay/neuter, heart worm test, flea & tick prevention, and heart worm prevention.
