Taz needs a foster!


Taz must be an only dog. He is so incredible with people. He spends hours just curled up next to me. He is not aggressive, but rather hyper-vigilant around other animals. It does not matter the size of the dog. Taz has had no stability in his life and his poor self-esteem comes out as defensive offense.

You can follow more on Taz and donate to his care here: Taz

If you are available to foster and have no other pets or children under 12, please fill out the  application.

Sweet and spunky Taz still needs a foster!
Taz is not good with other dogs.
Ideal home will be with a human he can trust. He is amazing with people.
Taz was a stray who has been in an outside shelter in KS for months. He is safe in a temporary home at RMFBR but desperately needs a foster home. 
He is almost deaf and is missing an eye. His teeth are broken and rotted so they are being removed in stages.
He deserves the best life.
Can you help?

The local small town Kansas shelter had previously been involved with Taz and Bridgette when they had been locked in a bathroom and starved.

A few months ago, the shelter found them wandering the streets in severe neglect. The shelter tried to press charges against the owner this time and Taz and Bridgette were stuck in the outside kennels while the law sorted it out. They decided to drop the charges and told the shelter “just euthanize those old dogs”.
So we stepped in. Now we need you.
Taz’s teeth are rotting and broken. We caught this just in time as an abscess was building under his gums. Almost half his teeth were removed yesterday and more dental surgeries are scheduled. He is also missing an eye from being attacked by a dog and is mostly deaf.
Bridgette will be getting her dental on Tuesday. She also has a large open mass/wound to be removed Tuesday. She has had an open wound for who knows how long.
These two have spent their 8 or 9 years fighting for their lives. We are trying to give them peace in their twilight years. They are both incredibly sweet and amazing dogs. They deserve love and comfort. Can you help us get them healthy?

Opal has found her forever home!


Opal came to me from her before home, where she had “small person” syndrome. Meaning she would pick on dogs bigger than her! She has a lot of bark, but no bite. Which makes her a great protector and a fun addition to the family. She is the sweetest and most relaxed french bulldog that I had the pleasure of fostering. She took a week to get adjusted to me, but after that, she welcomes you home with a big smile, and greeting at the door. Opal loves to chase bunnies, and birds around the neighborhood when we go out on walks, so make sure she’s on a leash, before she goes out! She’s not found of big dogs, and has issues seeing or being around them. Opal is a great dog that will cuddle up to you on the couch, and play catch for short periods of time, she likes her walks at night and in the morning, where its cool and peaceful. Opal needs a one dog home, where she can be the center of attention, and the Queen of her domain!


Opal needs a home with no other dogs. No exceptions.


Opal’s donation fee will be $250.


Be sure to fill out both the foster app and the adoption app if you are interested in Opal.


From her foster status: Sweet little Opal is settling into her foster home! She’s a little shy but foster mom has all the patience in the world. Opal’s surrendering owner had rescued her from craigslist and loved her dearly. Unfortunately, Opal has that little ‘tude with other dogs some Frenchies have and kept attacking the resident mastiff. Her owner tried everything and finally made the heartbreaking decision to call us.
Opal will get all the time she needs. Once she is ready for adoption, she will be posted. She is healthy at 6 1/2yo. The shaved spots on her are from her fights with the bigger dog. They are all healed well and her hair is starting to grow back. Welcome, Opal! We will be sure you are the only queen in the house.


Tink has found a home!

Tink 6.JPG

Hello, very nice to meet you, my new name is Tink, my foster dad named me that because when I walk around the house my little feet go “tink, tink, tink.” Who doesn’t love the sound of little paws? They also call me Tinker Bell sometime, because I am just that cute.Let me tell you a little bit about me. I was living with a family that had way too many dogs, so the people at RMFBR stepped in and took me to my new foster family. Here, I have settled in nicely and have learned what it is like to be a loving family pet.  I enjoy the company of other dogs and have daily wrestle sessions with my foster sisters. I am 100% potty trained and know how to go sit by the backdoor to let you know when it is time to go out, or I will even let myself out through a dog door. I know that being in my crate while the humans away is a safe and comfortable place to be and often will just go in there and lay down for a nap on my own. I am very proud to report I know how to walk nicely on a leash and know the commands of sit, off, go lay down, no, up, come, and stay. My humans are still working with me on more tricks, they say I am very smart! I love going to the dog park and get along with all other dogs and people I meet, big or small.
My favorite things to do in my foster home is snuggle on the couch with my humans. They let me crawl up on their laps and lay my head on their chest for nap-time, that is the best. I have learned to love the snow and like romping through it, even when it is taller than me!
The Dr. told me I have some allergies, but thanks to RMFBR they are now all under control. I will need a bath every week or two, but it is easy to do in the kitchen sink and I quite enjoy them, very relaxing. I also get an allergy shot once ever two weeks. The shots don’t bother me at all and I sit nicely for them.  I also am sensitive to food so will need a family that will feed me the kinds that work well for my skin, the great news is that the food can be purchased at pets mart so it is convenient. I also love veggies! Carrots, green beans, cucumbers, just call me a doggie composter.

Ok, well that is a awfully lot about me, I mean we haven’t even met yet! So fill out an application and lets get to know each other!

Finn has found a home!

Finn’s waddle12347883_10205705838305482_6535118576877847216_n

Finn, a neutered male 6yo, is a very affectionate dog, and loves to be close to people. He will nuzzle up as close as he can to you on the couch. He is always happy to see you when you get home, and is very loyal. He is playful and likes to chew on bones and other toys, although he can get a little possessive if another dog gets near him while he’s chewing on his bone. He currently lives in a foster home with a male black lab and a female pug, and he get’s along with both well. It took him some time to adjust to the lab, as Finn seems to be a little confrontational with bigger dogs, but he adores the pug. The perfect home for Finn would be a place where he can be the only dog, or have another smaller dog as a companion.

Annie has found her forever home!

Meet Annie!


Annie is one of the sweetest 9 year old girls I have had the chance to care for.

She loves her daily routine – get up, walk and then her favorite- EAT!! She isn’t really a picky eater – just happy to be fed. She will need to remain on a low-ingredient food as she has had some skin issues. She was on antibiotics and seems to be better, even though she still has some scabs.

She loves walks as well.

It took her about 2 weeks to get comfortable with me enough to start giving me kisses, but now she smothers me with kisses daily and follows me everywhere. image2

She loves car rides, loves to hang out with her foster sister Molly and play.  She gets along with the roommate’s cat, but I think she got scratched at one point so she just leaves her alone now.

She hasn’t gotten the hang of fetch and retrieve yet, so I assume she didn’t have that growing up, but she loves to befriend other dogs and hang out by the pool and socialize.

She doesn’t like loud noises but what dog does? She has great manners, hasn’t had many accidents in the house and is in general just a sweet lover.   She is just happy to be with me whatever that means we are doing!

And of course, she loves to sleep! Sleeps on the bed every night and the couch during the day.

Oh, and of course when I am gone and come home she is right by the door wagging her tail at me and so happy to see me.  Definitely not high maintenance just goes with the flow.

I can’t say enough about this sweet Annie.

Annie’s adoption donation will be $250.
