Welcome to Liberty Acres United Rescue Animal Sanctuary, a 501c3 nonprofit

Meet Marvin

Marvin would like to welcome you to Liberty Acres.

 No, no, no, no, no, I said I wanted my breakfast with bacon not sausage. Ugh you just can't get good help these days. Hi, my name is Marvin and I am currently looking for a new assistant/slave. I am the most handsome poodle in the world so you will have to be comfortable living in my shadow. I want things done right (meaning my way) and I want them when I want them. If you have screaming kids I am not interested. I do not put up with nonsense from people of any age. If you must have other dogs around I guess it is ok but they should get used to the back seat. I am a man who knows what he wants and I am willing to wait as long as it takes to find that right person. I am around 11 years old. For an interview for the position  submit your application. Once the application is processed you will receive a call notifying you of the status of the application. My adoption fee is $100. I am neutered and up to date.


Our website and Sanctuary are currently under construction so please give us a call at 765-969-4782 before dropping by.

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 are still under construction but when we are finished we hope to provide a loving and homelike environment to senior and  special needs dogs. Most of our dog come from other shelters where time is limited and resources are in short supply.

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. We are still under construction and the dogs are a big help, well they think so.

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. The main fenced area is six acres of wooded grounds. It is a place that large groups of dogs get to roam. There is also a long trail that follows around the pond and through the woods.

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 it takes approximately 4 days to process an application. 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. dog adoption

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 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. She has a couple of tumors and 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. She can be very demanding and is the boss of the yard. 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.

Pearly Girl and Maggie Mae


Pearl was rescued from a fighting ring. No she wasn't a fighter, well not like you would think. Pearl was one of their breeding dogs only taken out of her tiny cage to breed with aggressive males. So I guess you could say she is a fighter, she fought her misery to stay alive. The scars of her past show on  her body but not her spirit. 

Her sister Maggie Mae was found abandoned after weeks of neglect. The poor girl was so thin she couldn't stand up and had to be carried. 

Thankfully these girls were rescued from their horrible pasts several years ago and had love with a family. Then in their golden years tragedy struck in the form of a car wreck that left them without a home. Pearl is 12 years old and Maggie is 17 years old. We are honored to have these wonderful girls in their final years. They are true inspirations.

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.

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.
