Dogwood Animal Shelter Legacy Brick Project

Become a part of the enduring legacy of Dogwood Animal Shelter and supporting our mission by purchasing a brick!

The first phase of this campaign, the bricks will be placed in the front of the shelter building and around the cat and dog patios.

Since 1976, Dogwood has served the Lake of the Ozarks region by taking in and caring for homeless dogs and cats, operating only by donations from supporters such as you. The Legacy Brick Program will not only raise funds; it will also provide a place to honor donors, memorialize loved ones, and celebrate life's milestones.

Dogwood Animal Shelter Mission Statement:

To provide care and shelter to the homeless pets of our community, to reduce their numbers through spay and neuter, to promote humane treatment of all animals, and to enhance the human-animal bond.

You can help our community in a BIG WAY simply by bringing a dog or cat for spay or neuter at Dogwood's low cost clinic.

Leaving just one animal unaltered can result in hundreds of homeless babies! The solution is simple and inexpensive.
