From Death-Row to Farm Hand!

We discovered that many of the people that are willing to open their hearts to a Bella Run horse are also dog lovers! As a 501(c)3, we have the ability to intervene on behalf of the dogs in shelters that the public cannot pull. These dogs are scheduled to be euthanized with no chance at finding a home. Thousands of dogs are euthanized each year in Ohio alone without ever being placed up for adoption. Simply put, that isn't fair, and we are in a position to do something about it. That is how the Farm Dog Program was created.

Our unique Farm Dog Program has been a great success! In addition to house manners, we give dogs the tools necessary to be safe on a farm! When not working outside with us, the dogs are in our home, not chained up or in outdoor kennels. We expect that their new owners do the same. A dog that can behave off-leash and act appropriately around large animals is more appealing to potential homes with horses. Our dogs leave us confident, happy, and willing to work... perfect for a life with horse people!

Because we spend so much time with out farm dogs, we only have a couple dogs in the program at a time. If you are interested in a particular breed/type of dog, please contact us and can help you find a good match, even if it is through another rescue! There are always dogs needing homes!
