All of the HSO pets need to be kept inside and treated as a member of the family. Please be patient with our pets. They have all come from situations where they have never known to depend on humans for love and comfort. While they crave this love and comfort, they may not know how to go about getting it. They have been abandoned or spent their lives as strays or chained or penned outside away from their human families, and have to learn how to behave in a way we want them to.

Humane Society of the Ozarks is responsible for finding a home for the dog/cat, and the foster family must not place him/her in a home that has not been approved by the HSO adoption process. We do, however, appreciate all help you can give us to find an appropriate home. If you find a potential home, please have them fill out an adoption form and forward it to to process and do a home visit. While HSO will make every effort to help match you with a safe and nondestructive dog, they are living creatures and thus unpredictable and we cannot be held responsible for any damage to either person or property caused by the foster dog.
Your help will save a pets life!  Thank you!!!
