Since 1991!

Our farm where the dog rescue is located is northwest of Spokane near Seven Mile and we are open by appointment only in advance.  This dog rescue is a private residence and we do have vicious watch dogs that we need to lock up so no one is injured.  If folks arrive without appointments they are chomped and go to the emergency room.

Once we have an appointment to drop off dogs (See our To Place a Dog Page first BEFORE calling us) or come to adopt or volunteer only then will we give our exact location.  We can't have folks dumping their horse or other unwanted animals while we are sleeping, etc.

There is NO paid staff here! We are all volunteers. 

Margo Mossburg, is the Director or Main Pooper Scooper here since we opened on April 11, 1991.  It was Margo's silly idea to work our show and breeding horses plus start the dog rescue here at the same time to help wieners needing more training before placement.  She started out as a dachshund breeder with her family until we opened the rescue in 1991 when so many folks needed to place their dogs.  

Our horses here are Morgans and whatever we foster when working rescued horses now and then.  Margo is a second generation Morgan Horse breeder and trainer.  See Dragoon Morgans, if you like horses.  We also volunteer every summer at events with our buds at Rough Start Horse Rescue!   We place around 10 to 15 head of well trained horses each year now thanks to all our great horse volunteers.

Margo can train horses and dogs but she gives up on training husbands or cats!

Dennis Mossburg is the Head Volunteer who keeps all the machinery running like appliances, cars and riding mowers.  He has another real career doing law enforcement stuff but he helps out to keep us up and running.

There are 100+ other steady volunteers who attend events or come to the house to socialize and dog hug so our foster dogs get trained before placement.

Thanks but we already have enough foster homes that are close and convenient to us so we can get dogs back quickly when we have any adopters arriving to adopt.

If you want to volunteer here please see our To Volunteer page first on this web site.

If you are trying to place a dog with us please READ the To Place a Dog page first on this site BEFORE calling or emailing us on the form below. Many questions are already answered.  

If you want to adopt, please read that To Adopt page BEFORE calling or emailing as we do not adopt dogs without our waiting list form filled in first.  We do answer 500+ emails a day for this dog rescue so we do not adopt without our paperwork first.  Thanks.

Message Phone Only:  (509) 796-2140  We can't talk on the phone with yelling dogs who are playing and having fun here. Think noisy daycare but with four feet instead of two.  Please leave a message.  We will never answer the phone when working here with noisy dogs or out working horses for local fairs and horse shows.  

Email is always faster to reach us but please read our To Adopt or To Place pages before calling or emailing.  Thanks.

E-mail:  I check emails all day long and check the phone once or twice a day.
