Liberty Acres is a 22 acre sanctuary devoted to enriching the lives of animals as they wait for a "forever family". We also strive to provide a loving and homelike environment to senior, geriatric, disabled and hospice dogs. These dogs come from other shelters where time is limited and resources are in short supply. We offer these "death row" 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.
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.
At Liberty Acres we are always looking for ways to help. We have just began to assist in the rescue of small farm animals. We are also working towards building a cat house for homeless cats. Who knows what type of animal you may encounter on your next visit.
Any size donation is greatly appreciated. Just click on the tab below and help us save homeless and abandoned animals.

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 their 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.
Oh our Rusty is a special fellow at just 4 years old. He does well at the Sanctuary with people he knows and a regular schedule. Rusty is a great boy in the right environment. Rusty has anxiety issues which causes some bad behaviors but he is happy at the Sanctuary. Rusty has been passed around a bit in his past but is most comfortable in the stability of the Sanctuary. Though he has issues meeting new people he is great with dogs of all sizes and personalities which makes him an awesome addition to the Sanctuary pack. We love our big red quirky guy.
Shelby Jo and Rudy have had a rough 2021. In January their human daddy passed away. Then in April their mommy went to be with daddy. They were shuffled to a friends house that could not keep them for long. She knew that after the heartbreak of loosing their owners they would not make it in a shelter. She contacted us and we arranged to take them in. They seemed lost at first and a little depressed. Shelby is the big girl and will be turning 11yrs soon. Rudy will be 13. With all the loss and changes they have gone through it was decided that they should become Sanctuary Citizens. That way they will never have to go through another loss of stability again.
UPDATE: Sadly Rudy passed away unexpectedly. We will be keeping a close eye on Shelby to help her through yet another loss.
Miss Maggie came to the Sanctuary after being at another shelter for 2 years. She was adopted out many times to different types of homes but was always returned for escaping. It seems Maggie was very selective of where she wanted to stay. When she arrived at the Sanctuary we always monitored her while she was outside. We were waiting for that time she would decide to run. After awhile we started to realize she wasn't even trying to get out. She loves the 6 acre fenced area which is where she loves to hunt things, play in the woods, go frogging in the mud hole, or digging in the dirt chasing moles. Though she has become more social here at the Sanctuary she freaks out and refuses to get in a car to leave with anyone. She has decided this is her home and it's where she never wants to leave. After having her for these last few years we couldn't imagine the Sanctuary without her.
Hello, I would like to formally introduce myself. My name is Walter. Yeah I know I'm not a dog, I'm a cat silly. I have been hired on here at the Sanctuary. I have some very important jobs. You see I get to tell everyone when I think a dog would be a good fit in a house with cats. I test them and decide if they pass or fail. I am also in charge of comforting the new cats when they arrive at the Sanctuary. I am a sort of mother hen and take the new ones under my wing. I'm not available for adoption but you may see me in some posts, cause hey I'm a cutie after all.
These handsome fellows came to the Sanctuary after they were seized by animal control. They were a little shy at first but are now warming up. Frodo, Sam, Pip and Merri were named for their love of second breakfasts. They may one day be available for adoption but that would be after the court case releases them which could take months. We are happy to host our hobbit friends.
UPDATE: After months of waiting the goats are now available for adoption.
UPDATE: Both Pippin and Sam were adopted together.
We met Dave on a rescue run to pick up some dogs. Dave is a real sweet talker and convinced us that even though he is a unique addition that he would find his place, and he has. Dave spends his days loose in the Sanctuary yard monitoring all who come and go. Pull in the drive and Dave will be sure to give his cock-a-doodle-doo to let everyone know you are here. Dave is also head of rodent management in which he works closely with the cats. After a hard days work he retires to his roost in the garage.
Arlo is an FIV positive old man with advanced cancer. Even with his medical issues he is a sweet guy who loves his food and playing with his toys. We were introduced to Arlo through another rescue who knew Arlo could thrive in the right place. He is doing well at the Sanctuary and will be with us until he crosses the rainbow bridge.
Grounds and Hounds is a wonderful company that gives back to homeless animals. The coffee is totally pawesome and just wait til you see the merchandise. Just use the link below and your purchase will help raise much needed funds for the Sanctuary.
Our founder, Gary Sigler has left this earth. Gary was the visionary that made all of this happen. All of us that knew him have thanked him over and over for making it possible to save the lives of senior dogs, now cats, a few goats, and a Rooster named Dave. He would just shake his head and say he wished he could have done more, but his health got in the way. I don’t think he really knew the impact he has had on not just the lives of the animals we’ve rescued here, but also the people who have adopted them. We will be celebrating his memory on June 25th at 4pm at the Sanctuary. We hope you will join us in honoring him.
Saturday April 30th from noon until 5pm we will be celebrating our 5 year Anniversary. Stop in at the Sanctuary to see how we are changing the lives of homeless animals every day. We will have a food truck, a bake sale, fun games for the kids, vendor booths for you and your pet. Live music and more.
We love our Facebook stalkers. Some days the furrkids just snooze away but other days seem they are running circles around the staff and volunteers. Click the link to see what kind of crazy shenanigans the senior dogs are up to today. Also join our Facebook Volunteer group for the Sanctuary.
Keep updated on your favorite residents and don't forget to share our posts.
Bleach, Laundry soap, Dish soap, Lysol Cleaner, Fabuloso Cleaner, Paper towels, Garbage bags (both 13 gallon and 30 gallon)
Stamps, pens, pencils, note pads, lots and lots of copy paper, ink for our ENVY 5540 printer
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.
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.
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.
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.

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 takes in senior, geriatric, hospice and disabled pets that are at immediate risk of euthanasia at other shelters and always has a waiting list of pets to come in.
The Sanctuary is always full with a long waiting list of dogs to come in off of death row at our partner shelters. We do however take in owner releases if/when we have room. All dogs must be over 10 years old and must get along with other dogs. Please click below to fill out an application for intake. Completion of an application does not guarantee intake. Intakes are based on not only the dog coming in but also on the dogs currently in the house that has the vacancy. If your application is approved and a potential space opens up you will receive notification to set up a meet and greet with the potential house mates and your dog. There is an intake fee of $100 for an unaltered dog and $50 for a dog who is already spay/neutered. This fee goes to help with the approximately $200 to $350 it takes to vet and get a dog ready for adoption.

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.
