OMG, why are so few dogs on your website right now?!

Hello there! Hearts & Bones is very grateful to have been able to continue operating and safely rescuing dogs in need throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We're rescuing new pups and doing virtual adoption meetings pretty much every day!


We're currently experiencing an unprecedented level of interest in adoption - which is amazing! But that means within hours of posting dogs here, they all end up having a large number of great applicants ready to take them home. At that point we move them to "adoption pending" status and remove them from the website. We regularly have around 40 dogs in our care, but you'll probably only see a couple available here every day as we post new dogs and place others on hold.


This is still the best place to see which dogs are available for adoption and check out all the new pups! Please know that we will get to every adoption application, and that once you're approved, your Approved Adopter status applies to any dog - even if the one you initially applied for has been adopted! We appreciate your patience as our team works to adjust.
