Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a pet. By adopting a pet through Homestretch Hounds, Inc, you are truly saving a life- as this allows us the space to help rescue another animal in need. All of our dogs and pups have been spayed/ neutered, have been started on age appropriate vaccinations, as well as checked and treated for parasites, heartworm tested and started on heartworm and flea preventative. All of our dogs come from a shelter environment and will need help adjusting to a new home with issues such as housetraining and human interaction. We are located east of Cincinnati, near a town called Mt. Orab, Ohio. Some of our dogs are in foster homes and some are with us. Because of this, we need time to get them ready for adoptions. Therefore we do not have open hours. We ask that potential adopters schedule a time to come to our rescue for the adoption. However, prior to doing so, we ask that you complete an application. Please fill out the attached application and return it to us via email. Also note that a home visit may be required. Our adoption fee is $125-$200 for most dogs and puppies. We charge adoption fees to pay veterinary and other expenses. Adoption fees allow our rescue to continue helping dogs in need. Our fee covers only a portion of the care on these pets. The rest comes out of our pocket. If you are in a position to donate a larger amount then the stated fee, it is greatly appreciated. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue. We are all volunteer allowing 100% of all fees and donations to go towards helping pets in need. We are not subsidized and receive no other funding than adoption fees and other donations. Our program cannot continue without the support of people such as yourself.

Please note- we are strictly a volunteer organization and it may take a few days to a week for us to get back to you.
Thank you again for your interest and support. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Please feel free to contact us with any specific questions you may have. Sincerely, Homestretch Hounds Please support us by shopping through iGive at
