We are Open!

Well folks, it only took 2 years of planning, and a year of active volunteer work, but Shep’s Place is finally open. We received our Animal Shelter license from the State of Missouri last week, and our Business License from the City of Independence. So yesterday, April 6, 2019, we took in our first dog, John Wayne. JW is a 10-year-old labrador / Australian shepherd mix, and came from Midwest Animal Resq. He is the PERFECT model of a Shep’s Place dog: old, mellow, sweet and affectionate, and friendly with other dogs. He will soon be joined by several other residents.

It’s been a long road, but we made it! Now we just need to figure out how to sustain it over the long haul, both financially and through volunteer and community support.

  1. Bless You!!!!!!💖 Thank you for breaking all barriors and opening such a Jewel of a place for precious dogs who no longer have a place to call home, for whatever reason. The senior dogs who come to your Sanctuary are blessed and then also, go on to Forever homes. Even the dogs who don’t are also blessed, because of You who took on the HUGE undertaking of building such a MUCH NEEDED loving place to call home for Senior dogs in our Community, who just need a place to call home.
    Each one of you are such a blessing to our 2 legged and 4 legged Community.❤❤❤❤❤
