|Deacon's Hope was founded on Oct. 29, 2005 by Donna Smith and Family. It was inspired by their German Shepherd Deacon. Deacon was a part of their family for almost 17 years!
Deacon's Hope is in dedication to him. In honor of him, Deacon's Hope will save as many lives as possible, vet them and place in the best possible homes! We cannot, and will not, turn our backs on any breed in need, big or little!
Donna our President has taken a hiatus but has left the rescue to our Vice President, Gayle Schmidt. Gayle has taken the reins to keep saving those left behind in shelters.
DHR is an all volunteer program. We DO NOT have a shelter. All DHR animals are fostered in homes with one of our volunteer foster families.
Some of them have been in rescue way too long and would really love to have a family of their own.
We have a 100% spay/neuter policy.
If you would like to foster, even one dog, it is one more dog that we couldn't save without you!
Thank you for looking at our website!
