Thank you for your donations! Our medical needs are never ending for our pooches. So many times I want to post pictures of the services our dogs receive but oftentimes, they are so graphic. Today, we have a dog new to our program named Freedom. Unfortunately, he was caught in a live clamp trap for days. Thankfully, he survived but he is losing his leg today because of it. He is a young dog though & will make a wonderful recovery. THANK YOU for your recent donations & THANK YOU to https://www.facebook.com/WhiteGlovePM/?fref=ts for matching all donation until the end of November! Because of all of you, Freedom will be the cutest tripod in town! Please stop by the White Glove Property Management page & "Like" it!

Chandler was cleared by the cardiologist & even the neurologist. Although he has a murmur, his episodes are caused by what they feel is fused disks in his neck. Plan of attack: Xrays this week (sneaking in a dental; poor guy has so bad breath!) to see how bad it is. Stay tuned!
Dogs by Debin is located in Kansas City, Missouri. We house & care for approximately 40 dogs at any given time. Our dogs arrive in our care in many ways; owner surrenders, strays & we pull from local high-intake shelters.
We have an equal balance of dogs that need medical care, behavioral rehabilitation & some dogs that are just ready to get into that new home today. All of our dogs leave our care spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped & heartworm tested (if positive, we treat them).
We were developed based on the fact that there is a gap in the system here locally. The shelters that are open-intake, although they are doing the best they can, they can only do so much. Those shelters are also very stressful to the dogs & this is where we step in. You can consider our place a half-way home for dogs if you will. We allow the dogs to be dogs again, offering them behavioral modification, land to run on, playgroups & necessary vet care. With this being said, our adoption rate is sometimes slowed due to the fact the dog(s) may not be ready for adoption right away. We set our dogs up for success & match them with the right family. Our final goal is to have the adoptions last the dog's lifetime.
Our #1 goal though is to have a dog stay in their current home, should it be safe. We offer counseling & resources to do our best to make this happen. When it's not possible, they may safely surrender the dog to us, provided we have space.
Please consider donating to our cause. You can visit our Facebook page & watch while we grow, or help us grow by making a donation. We are a licensed shelter through the state of Missouri & a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
