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.

To adopt an animal, please see our

Hi, I’m triple B - Big Boy Barry. I am a 60 Lb, 7 month old lab mix that is going to be an extra large boy, so I just decided people can start calling me Big Boy Barry. While I might be big, I don’t let that stop me from trying to be a lap dog and lay right next to you on the couch. Size doesn’t matter right? 🙂 I am currently in a foster home with other dogs and kids and I am doing fantastic. I love to play outside or lay on the couch and look out the window. If you’re looking for a big boy, I’m your guy! If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Hi, Im Clay. First thing you should know about me is I’m a little shy. I was found as a stray, so I am a little nervous about new things. Im not used to being in a home, but I don’t potty inside or make messes, so I'm clearly a very good boy! Some things Im learning with treats and some encouragement are: how to eat out of a bowl, that hardwood floors and stairs are not scary, how to walk on a leash, and that it’s safe to come out of my hiding spots. Things I love include: my foster doggy siblings, playing outside with my foster doggy siblings, lots of pets from my foster mommy, sitting for treats, and shredded cheese. I am very gentle and loving, and I am learning that not all people are bad and that I am deserving of love. With a doggy companion and some confidence, I will learn all the workings of being a family dog. As I continue to grow, I will make sure Chain of Hope updates everyone here.

Hi, I’m Lucky and I am a 11-12 month old hound mix that was dumped in the country. Luckily (like my name), I was found and I am in a loving foster home now. In my foster home, I have a foster kid sibling, foster dog sibling, and a foster cat sibling, so everyone knows that I am great with dogs, cats, and kids. I am doing fantastic in my foster home, but I have learned I can jump over a 4ft fence, so I will need a tall fence if i get my very own back yard. Im really hoping my name brings me some additional LUCK and I find my forever home. If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Don't let my beginning pictures worry you, mange doesn’t have anything on me and with my medicated baths, I am getting better and my fur is growing back. Now that I am feeling better, I’m starting to play and show my personality. I am about 1 years old and LOVE to play and prance around. I am good with other dogs and don’t mind cats. I am very playful and learning how to control my excitement so kids with dog experience are best. Do you want to be apart of my success story and get a REALLY cute fur baby as well?

Hi I’m Thornton! I am a Chocolate lab mix that is a cute as they come! Chain of Hope has been a part of my story since I was a puppy. They always came and helped remove me from a heavy chain and provide shelter and warmth for me while I lived outside. One day, I really wanted to play (I’m young you know) and slipped out of my collar and was hit by a car. I suffered a horrible broken leg, but Chain of Hope was able to rescue me and get me surgery. Now I am on the mend! Since my surgery was so extensive, I am on rest for a while, but as I continue to get healed, more of my personality shows. I am a lover and am told I am a funny boy! I love other dogs and am very playful. Since I lived outside for my whole life (1.5 years) and on the end of a chain, I would love a warm home and a yard to play in. Maybe a kid or other dog siblings too! If you are interested in meeting me, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Hi! Bloom here! I am a senior American Bully mix that is as sweet as they come. I was found cuddled up in trash after I was dumped in bad condition, but Chain of Hope knew I would *BLOOM* into a happy healthy dog, and that’s just what I did!

Have you ever seen a pitty with beautiful reddish-brown fur? Well, I guess my name is fitting… I’m Ruby! I’m 3 years old and the perfect snuggler. I am currently in a foster home with some human siblings and doggy siblings, and while I am selective on my doggy friends - human siblings are were it’s at! I love laying anywhere near people and honestly, people are just my thing. Other great qualities about me… I’m potty trained, kennel trained (although I don’t need one), I only eat food items (so no “what are you eating?!?!” comments will be needed), and I am a super fast learner! There are a few things I’m not fond of though… I’m great on a leash, but get a little jumpy when other dogs pass (I’m just trying to talk “HEY, WHATS YOUR NAME?!”), and I am a little selective on my doggy friends. I do fine with my foster doggy siblings, but I just need to go at my pace and have a proper introduction. If you are looking for a family dog, to cuddle with your kids (or you) and be a chilling partner when Netflix is on (you know, some Netflix and Chill action), well I am your girl!

Hi I’m Susie! I am an adult pit bull (not a senior - but a lady doesn’t tell her age), that loves the companionship of people. Before Chain of Hope got me, I had an accident that caused some neurological damage, but that doesn’t stop me! I love laying in the sun or sitting in my next best friends lap (which you can see Im the perfect size for). I love human attention and would love to find my own family. I am very food motivated and other than a slip every now and then when I walk, I am another loving girl looking for her forever home.

Maggie is a wonderful, young pit bull with a great personality! She has quite a story. Maggie lived on a chain for 2 years and never went inside. It was very sad because she has so much love to give! Chain of Hope was finally able to rescue her and she is so happy to be here getting so much love and attention. Maggie is kennel-trained, house-trained, obedient and smart! Maggie is always up for an adventure. She is great in a car and loves to go for car rides. She loves to go for walks and is good on a leash. She will pull at first from the excitement but mellows out as you walk. Maggie is a social gal and loves her dog friends. She loves to play and would enjoy another dog in the house. She seems a little too interested in cats at this point! Maggie is very affectionate and wants to be with people! She missed that for so long! If you have a lot of love to give to a very deserving girl, then Maggie is your girl! If you are interested in meeting Maggie, please visit www.chainofhopekc.org and fill out an adoption application.

Luke has had a very difficult life. We've posted about him on our fb page a few times. He lived on a heavy chain for 5 years and he never went inside. He was out in the freezing cold and snow and he was out in the sweltering heat, sometimes with no water. It was a miserable life. Chain of Hope was finally able to rescue him and Luke has gotten his life back! After all he went through, he tested positive for heart worms. Luke recently completed his heart worm treatment and he is doing great! He is currently in a foster home and learning how to be a happy dog! Luke is about 6 years old and weighs close to 90 lbs! He's a gentle giant who is now finding out what life can really be like! We can't think of a more deserving dog. He has so much love to give and it's been great to watch him get love and care and respond so happily!

Gabe is such a sweetheart! We have no idea why he's been homeless for so long! He was found as a stray over a year ago. He was watching over the body of his deceased dog friend who was hit by a car. Gabe came to Chain of Hope where he made lots of new friends! Gabe loves people and other dogs. He's currently in a foster home with another large playful dog and he's doing great! When he's not playing with his dog friends, he enjoys snuggling on the couch with his people. He's rather large (80+ lbs) and will take up at least half of your couch when he gets comfy.

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/foster mom if dinner is late. He's not picky about what is served though! Tank is in a foster home with his best friend Star. They are a dynamic duo. Tank is house trained, kennel trained, and leashed trained. He is looking for a forever home to retire in. If you are looking for the best senior dog, look no further. Tank is your man. He LOVES kids, love and more love.

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.

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.
