It was a pretty simple idea we had in 2015. We know that some dogs don’t do well in shelters
while waiting to be adopted. So lets make a place where the senior dogs, dogs with medical
needs or even dogs that have been passed over again and again for no reason other than they are
not a puppy or they look scared. We wanted these dogs to be able to relax and feel safe, so we put up a “Dog House”!
The “Dog House” sits on 8 wooded and fully fenced acres in southern Johnson County KS.
We wanted to make this dog retreat as much like a real home as possible. There are 3 large
indoor/outdoor kennels and room for temporary kennels if needed. We have a living room
area, a dining area and a kitchen. The “Dog House” is heated and cooled so everyone stays
comfortable all year long. It really is like home.
We opened our doors in April of 2017 and proudly partnered with the Humane Society of
Greater Kansas City. Since that time, HomeTails has been occupied with lots of dogs on their
way to new adoptive homes.
HomeTails is always thankful for any donations, useable items or monetary donations,
plus it’s a great tax deduction.
Items we can always use: gently used blankets, pillows, towels, dog treats, dog food.
We can arrange for pickup of any items, just lets us know.
