About The Sanctuary


About Liberty Acres

Liberty Acres is a 22 acre sanctuary devoted to enriching the lives of dogs as they wait for a "forever family". We strive to provide a loving and homelike environment to senior and  special needs dogs. These dogs come from other shelters where time is limited and resources are in short supply. We offer these "death row" senior and special needs dogs a place where they can get back to health and be re-homed. Some become permanent residents due to health issues. Check out our Sanctuary Citizen section. 


Accommodations for our Dogs

While at Liberty Acres, dogs enjoy accommodations in cozy, tiny homes with access to a doggy door and a fenced in area.  The houses are air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. You will find the dogs lounging about on a couch or snuggled up in a bed. There are trained staff that live on the property, therefore the dogs never feel alone.  Daily Activities for the dogs include: hikes in the woods, off leash running in the 6 acre fenced area and a 3 acre pond.


Where do our dogs come from?

Liberty Acres is a last resort for senior and special needs dogs who have been in other shelters. These dogs have been placed on their euthanasia list and their time is very limited. We work with several shelters around the area to pull these dogs so that they will not be put to sleep. Instead they come here to wait for adoption or live out their days.

Looking to Re-home Your Pet?

If you have a pet in need of a home please click on the link below. It will lead you to a wonderful re-homing site that can help you find the perfect family for your pet. The Sanctuary has very limited space and is always full. We can not take in owner surrender dogs from the public at this time.

The Sanctuary only takes in dogs that are at immediate risk of euthanasia at other shelters.

Meet some of our Sanctuary Citizens

What is a Sanctuary Citizen?


Liberty Acres is a Sanctuary. Yes we adopt out animals but there are special cases where an animal would not be available for adoption. Many times in other facilities those animals would be euthanized. At Liberty Acres those animals become permanent residents. They stay with the staff and volunteers until the end of their life. It may be due to medical or behavioral but all of the dogs at Liberty Acres get a chance at a happy life.



Elaine is a dog who has a checkered past. This spunky Coonhound has been around the block and then some. Elaine is a good dog for those whom she chooses to befriend but they're numbers are few. She spends her time with her furry BFF Winnie. She doesn't trust new people and therefore will get to spend her last years with those she loves here at the Sanctuary.



Winnie was raised in a feral dog colony. She knows very little of human touch or interaction. She has come a long way here at the Sanctuary but still prefers her doggy friends over the two legged kind. She spends her days running through the woods and snuggling with her BFF Elaine. We love our quirky addition to the Sanctuary and are happy to ensure she is happy for as long as she will have us.



Our little Louie seems to have more silver hair than most. He is an older fellow for sure. Louie has spent most of his life in rescues and shelters. He takes a bit of time to get to know and chooses his friends very carefully. Louie came to us with the intent we could find him a home. After several crippling episodes and vet visits we learned his "crankyness" was due to severe arthritus in and around his spinal area. Louie is on meds to keep him comfortable and he will no longer be searching for his forever. Louie is now a Sanctuary Citizen until his time on earth is through.

Our Wish List

Cleaning Supplies


Bleach, Laundry soap, Dish soap, Lysol Cleaner, Fabuloso Cleaner, Paper towels, Garbage bags (both 13 gallon and 30 gallon)

Office Supplies


Stamps, pens, pencils, note pads, lots and lots of copy paper, ink for our ENVY 5540 printer

Training Supplies


Small, good tasting training treats, good leashes and collars are all essential to our mission. Interactive toys and treat toys are also a great way for the dogs to exercise their minds.

Medical Donations for Hospice Dogs and Vet Care


As a Sanctuary we take in many animals that would be euthanized by other shelters due to an illness or injury. These animals come in with various medical problems that are costly to treat, however we know they are worth it. You can help us save these animals that would otherwise be forgotten.

Landscaping supplies


As we are still finishing up construction we are always in need of gravel, wood chips and edgers. These items not only make the place look good but they also help some of our dogs who have mobility issues get around.

For all pets to be Spay/Neutered


 Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems. By spaying and neutering your animals you are also helping to prevent the overpopulation of companion animals. It just makes sense.

To those we have lost

"Gone from our lives but never our hearts"

 To sit with those who truly need you, those that everyone else has forgotten. To grasp their paw and stroke their coat. To talk of silly stories with them as you hide the pain of loss. To calm your hands from shaking and keep breathing through the tears. To hold dear every memory of love as you let them go. Giving them the same dedication they gave to us, without question. Sleep well and run free our furred friends. Til we meet again at Rainbow Bridge.
