Our Lil’ Bit Of Heaven
Animal Rescue & Sanctuary
About us. Home. Adoptions. How You Can Help. Contact us. Upcoming Events.

Upon arrival to OLBH all of our animals are spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, fecal tested, wormed, receive age appropriate vaccinations and a complete physical exam by our veterinarian.  They are tested and placed on a monthly heartworm/flea/tic preventative.  Each of them are kept up to date on vaccines and any other medical care they may require while they are here with us.

Once you've found your new furry family member, we require an adoption application be completed (after you have met and decided upon the furry kid of choice) which you can do here on our site.  The application is reviewed, references are contacted and then you are approved or denied.  If your application is approved a pre-adoption exam is scheduled with our veterinarian (depending upon the length of time the kid has been with us) and a home visit is schedule with you and your family to ensure our girls/boys are going to safe environment and the right one for their individual personalities. The adoptee is brought along to the home visit and if everything falls into place they get to stay with their new family.  The adoption fee is due at that time and an adoption contract between yourself and our facility will be completed.  All of their medical paperwork, Shelter Care Insurance information, tags and the following months application of preventatives will also be provided.

We require that you  schedule a time to visit all of our kids. We are available for appointments every day and are willing to work around your schedule to assist you in meeting them.

There are always always always so many more hurting and in need that we can help by having room  available.

 Remember, you need to come and meet and greet the furry kid or kids you have decided upon and then fill out an application. We will not process the application until you have met the dog in person

OLBH does adopt out of state, however we do not ship animals, you must come to OLBH.We also require a fenced in yard.  Exceptions may be made for those residing in an apartment depending upon the animal of choice.  Underground fencing may be acceptable again depending upon the animal of choice. We do not adopt to homes where our furry friends will live outside.

I am a dog. I am a living, breathing animal. I feel pain, joy, love, fear and pleasure.
I am not a thing. If I am hit – I will bruise, I will bleed, I will break. I will feel pain. I am not a thing.
I am a dog. I enjoy playtime, walk time, but more than anything, I enjoy time with my pack – my family – my people. I want nothing more than to be by the side of my human. I want to sleep where you sleep and walk where you walk. I am a dog and I feel love…I crave companionship.
I enjoy the touch of a kind hand and the softness of a good bed. I want to be inside of the home with my family, not stuck on the end of a chain or alone in a kennel or fenced yard for hours on end. I was born to be a companion, not to live a life of solitude.
I get too cold and I get too hot. I experience hunger and thirst. I am a living creature, not a thing.
When you leave, I want to go with you. If I stay behind, I will eagerly await your return. I long for the sound of your voice. I will do most anything to please you. I live to be your treasured companion.
I am a dog. My actions are not dictated by money, greed, or hatred. I do not know prejudice. I live in the moment and am ruled by love and loyalty.
Do not mistake me for a mindless object. I can feel and I can think. I can experience more than physical pain, I can feel fear and joy. I can feel love and confusion. I have emotions. I understand perhaps more than you do. I am able to comprehend the words you speak to me, but you are not always able to understand me.
I am a dog. I am not able to care for myself without your help. If you choose to tie me up and refuse to feed me, I will starve. If you abandon me on a rural road, I will experience fear and loneliness. I will search for you and wonder why I have been left behind. I am not a piece of property to be dumped and forgotten.
If you choose to leave me at a shelter, I will be frightened and bewildered. I will watch for your return with every footfall that approaches my kennel run.
I am a dog – a living, breathing creature. If you choose to take me home, please provide me with the things that I need to keep me healthy and happy.
Provide me with good food, clean water, warm shelter and your love. Do not abandon me. Do not kick me. Do not dump me when your life gets too busy. Make a commitment to me for the entirety of my life, or do not take me home in the first place.
If you desert me, I do not have the means to care for myself. I am at the mercy of the kindness of people – if I fall into the wrong hands, my life will be ruined.
I will experience pain, fear and loneliness. If I wind up in an animal shelter, I have only my eyes to implore someone to save me, and my tail to show you that I am a friend. If that is not good enough, I will die.
I am a dog. I want to give and receive love. I want to live. I am not a thing. I am not a piece of property. Please do not discard me. Please treat me with kindness, love and respect. I promise to repay you with unconditional love for as long as I live.

If you are a veteran, with an approved application you can adopt one of these wonderful dogs for just $75

Take a look at the available dogs, you are sure to find the new best friend you are looking for!

Here are just a few of these OLBH veteran dogs looking for their furever homes!



A Dog sits in a shelter wondering if they will ever get out – wondering if they will ever find home again.

A Dog sits is a shelter and decides that there is no tomorrow – no reason to wait and hope for a life beyond isolation and pain.

A Dog sits in a shelter and recedes within – lets go of the ties that they once held to our human world – their instincts tell them flight, fight, give in, give ...up, surrender.

A Dog sits in a shelter and feels weak and alone and helpless and depressed.

A Dog sits in a shelter and the days pass – their future now bleak – their history all too familiar…

“I was once a pet. I was once a family member. I had people to watch over me and feed me and they were always there. I was an animal – a primal being with nature coursing through my veins – energy in my step and wind in my face. I was a companion, a friend, a protector, a helper, a healer. I grounded my humans to the good in life and I lived for those moments when they would see the world as I do – full of possibility and opportunity in every second. Every single day was meant to be filled with our desires and our dreams. I was always there for them. I never gave up on them. I always knew that they would be there for another day of this dog’s life. They promised me that when they let me join their world and made me part of their lives. I saw it in their eyes. I would never have to wonder…there was always home.”

Every sad dog in a shelter has a sad history of sad humans who have proved to another “lesser” species that we are full of failure and disappointment…

Shelter dogs are sick of our lies and promises

Make Change Happen

A Dog is for a lifetime – THEIR LIFETIME! No EXCEPTIONS!

Rescue is a Mission – not for us to find reward but always in an attempt to lead the ones we have lead astray back to the open arms of a home…
