• About Us

    (Click here to access Dogs by Debin full website for more comprehensive listing)

    Dogs by Debin is located in Kansas City, Missouri. We house & care for approximately 40 dogs at any given time. Our dogs arrive in our care in many ways; owner surrenders, strays & we pull from local high-intake shelters.

    Spay & Neuter & Vaccinations:
    We have an equal balance of dogs that need medical care, behavioral rehabilitation & some dogs that are just ready to get into that new home today. All of our dogs leave our care spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped & heartworm tested (if positive, we treat them).

    Half- Way Home:
    We were developed based on the fact that there is a gap in the system here locally. The shelters that are open-intake, although they are doing the best they can, they can only do so much. Those shelters are also very stressful to the dogs & this is where we step in. You can consider our place a half-way home for dogs if you will. We allow the dogs to be dogs again, offering them behavioral modification, land to run on, playgroups & necessary vet care. With this being said, our adoption rate is sometimes slowed due to the fact the dog(s) may not be ready for adoption right away. We set our dogs up for success & match them with the right family. Our final goal is to have the adoptions last the dog's lifetime.

    Counseling Resources:
    Our #1 goal though is to have a dog stay in their current home, should it be safe. We offer counseling & resources to do our best to make this happen. When it's not possible, they may safely surrender the dog to us, provided we have space.

    Please consider donating to our cause. You can revisit our website & watch while we grow, or help us grow by making a donation. We are a licensed shelter through the state of Missouri & a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

    Thank you,

Interested in adopting a dog? Dogs by Debin provides shelter/care for a variety of sizes/breeds.  You can consider our place a half-way home for dogs if you will.  We allow the dogs to be dogs again, offering them behavioral modification, land to run on. Playgroups & necessary vet care are also included. These adoptable dogs have a better chance of getting adopted given this environment. Whether you are looking to adopt a large breed dog or adopt a smaller breed all the our dogs could make a great addition to your loving family.


Donations to Dogs by Debin is the most direct way to help animals in need.  Providing food, shelter, medical care, and more for our dogs takes many resources which can add up very quickly. Your donation today will provide essential services for our dogs to keep them healty and happy until they are placed in a forever home.


If you are interested in opening your home, we can find the right match for you. As a foster home, we request that you help the dog along with any potential issues it may have. Some have none! So it’s whatever your comfortable with! We can do a dog to dog introduction if you have a current dog, cat-test the dogs & teach you ways to integrate them into your home.
There are a few requirements we ask & those can be addressed upon interest.  Thank you — Dogs by Debin.
