• For most dogs our animal shelter is a short term place to stay for a few days or weeks while they wait to be adopted. But for a handful of our dogs that have been overlooked or need specific home environments their stay at our shelter has stretched into years.  In this gallery are photos of our Sanctuary Dogs at the Ozark Humane Society. These are dogs that our animal shelter has become a sanctuary for. They have been at the shelter for years waiting to be adopted. We have not given up hope and believe they still have a chance at finding a forever home. In the meantime we have granted them life time sanctuary here at our animal shelter. If you are not able to adopt one of our Sanctuary Dogs, consider becoming a special friend to one of them, stopping by when you can to bring them a toy, treat or take them out for a walk.  Help us spread the word and find these sweeties homes.
