MBR is a small group of people who try to help as many displaced animals as possible. We work with humane officers, veterinarians and shelters in the state of Ohio to help dogs that are being mistreated, abused, neglected, or have medical needs. We also take in dogs from high kill shelters, local county-run pounds, and in-state rescues to allow them to make room for new in-takes to their facility. Occasionally, in extreme circumstances, we will assist with owner surrenders. Once in our care, all of our animals are given proper and necessary vetting to ensure their well being. We do not have a public shelter; the majority of our dogs are in foster homes. That means prior to adoption, our animals live in someone’s home until they can be placed in a loving FURever home. MBR operates 100% on volunteers and donations. We are a registered non-profit 501(c) 3. From 2006 through 2019, we have rescued over 2,400 dogs and plan to grow that number as we continue on our mission.
The adoption fee for all dogs listed depends on the breed, age, vet care, cost to pull from the kill shelter, worming medicine, flea medicine, etc. The adoption fee BARELY covers all of the previous mentioned expenses. Please do not ask for us to lower the fee. The dogs listed on this site are located at various foster homes throughout Ohio. We do not have a shelter therefore anyone wishing to visit one of our dogs must first complete an application and be an approved adopter for that dog. Please make a note that the majority of the dogs are being kept in Elyria, Ohio. We do not transport our dogs, you would need to come to Elyria to meet and possibly adopt. You must be a minimum of 23 years old to adopt. All adopters must fill out an application, NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE!
