Hello everyone,
I am writing in an effort to help get some of these wonderful rescue dogs into foster homes, better yet adoptive homes. They all have their own story, but the common theme is an unwanted dog. There are varied factors in which these dogs have ended up in need of foster homes, but I will keep the info short and sweet, for the sake of an easy read. There are also dogs in foster homes, available for adoption, but it is imperative that this group of 8 dogs find foster homes by the beginning of September.
With many dogs in and out of boarding, the expenses are getting unbearable. In early June, I made a payment of $1,400, and last week I made a payment of $1,000. There is still a $600 + balance and the bill increases daily at $11/day/dog. If anyone would like to make a donation, please do and THANK YOU!:
All dogs are under Stephanie Meacham at:
White House Kennel
2673 Tenbrook Rd
Arnold, MO 63010
(636) 296-6688  
(website is currently unavailable)
I must have these dogs placed into secure and reliable foster/adoptive homes over the next several weeks. Please share with family, friends, coworkers, etc. These are all very deserving dogs, who are not only very lucky to have another chance, but also very grateful.
Please contact with any inquiries, questions, more pictures, etc. Thank you!
I was contacted about Kobe from an Illinois rescue group, who felt that he did not qualify to be part of their group. Kobe was saved from a backyard breeder, and lived with a woman who became terminally ill. He was spending 20 hours a day in crate, overweight, under socialized. Kobe was living in Chicago, and an area trainer went to assess him, and labeled him dangerous, due to her lack of confidence in completing the evaluation. Kobe receives the "most improved award". He is incredibly smart, and willing to please. He is thriving in every possible way, and with proper introductions, he is doing well with other dogs. Kobe was supposed to be entered into a prison training program shortly after his arrival, but due to issues within the program, he was not able to go. He was been in boarding for almost 3 months. 

Stanley is a young man who came from St. Charles, MO animal control. A volunteer brought him out, while I was visiting another dog, and begged for help. He was a two timer at the animal control and his owner no longer wanted him. Stanley, at first, is a little overwhelming, but he is so desperate for love and affection. He would do best in a home where he would get the exercise, and attention he needs. He is very sweet and loving. He has been in boarding for a few weeks, but is really struggling. He needs help before his kennel crazy takes over. Stanley is very much at ease when other dogs around, and said to have come from a home with children.

Andy came from several states away. He was living in the south as an outdoor dog, when a neighbor child climbed the fence. Andy accidentally scratched the child in the face (confirmed by hospital report), and a police officer shot at Andy. While the officer bragged that he shot him in the throat, the bullets grazed Andy, causing wounds which have since healed. Andy needed to be moved, as the police believed him to be dead. Andy is incredibly sweet, yet understandably scared due to his experiences. He is seeking a foster home for his heartworm treatment. He is capable of climbing a chain link fence of any height, in a desperate attempt to be close to someone, human or canine. For that reason, he is currently confined to his indoor run at the kennel, for his safety as well as the client dogs.
Holly was living in the woods of Jefferson County, MO in the cold winter months. She had to be tranquilized to be captured, and she was not at all happy when she awoke in animal control. Because of that, no one committed to saving her life. Holly spent several weeks in training. Holly is great with cats, adores children and women, but is not always trusting of men. She is a great protector, and a very easy dog. Holly is a dominant dog, so some dogs would be an appropriate fit, while others would not. Doesn't require much exercise, very food and treat motivated. She is just seeking her perfect home.

Huck is a big boy who originally came from an animal control in Gary, IN. He was taken into a rescue in the Chicago area. He had some fear issues which the rescue did not have the means to assist with. I was asked to help with Huck, or he would be euthanized. Huck is doing great, and just completed a 6 week in home training with the trainer. Huck did great with the dogs, and learned proper behavior, as well as getting lots of exposure which helped him overcome his fear. Huck is a great dog, extremely smart and wants to please. He will require a special foster/adopter due to his strength and size, and will require someone who is dog savvy and experienced. Huck has come a long way, and I do not want to him to regress in boarding.

Benny is a goof ball! He ended up in animal control just South of St. Louis. He was extremely underweight, and became nippy with the staff when getting put into his run. Because of this, he was labeled aggressive, and was only allowed to be released and undergo rehabilitation. For weeks, Benny's health was not up to par. His lowest weight was about 33 lbs, and now he is a striking 70+ pounds. Benny does not do well in a kennel or crate, and we had to extract 3 of his teeth due to his chewing on metal. Benny has been in two foster homes and he has done really well. Benny would do best with female dogs, or males who are not bully breeds. Benny is silly and will make you laugh with his antics!

Rocky is an amazing dog. After many late summer nights last year, trying to catch him at Walmart, I discovered he had a home. But, they were not caring for him properly. I convinced them to surrender him, after Cindy from Cindy's Critter Camp offered to board him while a home was found. Rocky was adopted for several months and did great in the home. He was dumped by his adopter at a high kill animal control, with his collar and tags removed. He did nothing wrong, and thank goodness for a microchip! Rocky is playful, friendly and full of life. Do not let his age deter you. He is awesome!! He deserves to be in a home, his final home.
Molly is a beautiful fawn pitbull, about 7 years old. She was turned into animal control in Granite City, IL when her owner became homeless and it was too hot to keep her in the truck. I am attaching a link for her bio, posted by AAVENGE. Molly went into a great home, with 5 other dogs. She and the only other female had gotten into it before, but they made it work by keeping them separate. About a week ago, there was a slipup which led to a bad fight between the girls, which also led to injuries of the owners, trying to break it up. They are unable to keep her at this time. The husband's health is bad, and the wife cannot manage on her own. They are wonderful people, and I respect their decision. Molly is looking for a foster or adoptive home. No small animals, and male dogs ok. Very loving dog.
