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".

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.  There are trained staff that live on the property, therefore the dogs never feel alone.

Activities for the Dogs

Daily Activities for the dogs include: hikes in the woods, off leash running in the fenced areas and of course, a dip in the large pond.

Adoption Application

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill out an application.  If the application is approved we will set up a time for you to meet with your potential new house mate. Please note that if you have dogs currently we recommend that you bring them with you to meet the new dog. Adoption fees are $100 for an adult dog and $125 for a puppy. This includes the spay/neuter and vaccinations. **As we are still in the construction phase please give us a call at 765-969-4782 before dropping by.

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 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 thought 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. 


Penny came to us emaciated and full of infection. At around 8 plus years old we were not sure she would make it. After several vet visits we learned she was also diabetic. Many places would have her put to sleep but one meeting with this goofy girl and you will see her light still shines bright. Penny is a high maintenance old gal but we don't mind maintaining her.  She will live out her days with us here at the Sanctuary.

Dedicated to those we have lost


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.

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.

For every animal to find their forever home (of course)

Did you know that when you adopt an animal you actually save two lives? The one you are adopting and the one waiting to be saved by that rescue/shelter. There are so many animals all over the world waiting for a family like you. If you don't find what your looking for here at the Sanctuary please keep checking back or stop in at another shelter. They are waiting.

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.

Utility Vehicle Needed!

Utility Vehicle Needed!

The Sanctuary is in need of a Utility Vehicle such as a mule or gator. There is 22 acres of land to care for here and this would help a great deal. If anyone could donate one or if you would like to make a monetary donation to help us get one it would be greatly appreciated.
