About Us

How We're Helping

We are a rescue for the African Basenji and Shiba Inu. Our dogs come  from shelters, owner surrender or found abandoned. We accept elderly, medical need and ones with issues such as fear biting and not properly socialized. Those who can be treated are placed in a home.  We have several permanent residents due to behavioral or health issues. 


In addition, we provide counseling to current owners and education regarding training and behavioral issues, as well as other resources  to keep those dogs with their owners and prevent owner surrender. 


We cover Midwest and Mid-South states mid-South states and are located in Indianapolis Indiana.


Since we are foster based, we are in need of homes in the Central Indiana, Northwest Indiana, Chicagoland area. We can also accept fosters around Louisville KY.
