Mountain Home Arkansas Mountain Home Pets, Inc. is the result of many years of rescue work in Louisiana and Arkansas. As a registered non-profit corporation, the goal of the group is to be the primary resource for rescued, lost and found pets in the area. Working mainly with Yorkshire Terriers and Chihuahuas (and other small breeds as room permits), but also able to help seniors and special needs dogs. A Seniors for Seniors program places special senior dogs with senior citizens.

Looking for a specific breed? Purebreds are available from almost every shelter and all-breed rescue agency. But you may also want to check breed-specific rescue groups.
