Help Save Me


Meet Bentley!

Bentley is a sweet Boxer mix boy in search of his FURever home.

This goofy, sweet, energetic and loving boy can not figure why no one has wanted to give him a home of his very own yet.

Bentley LOVES children and other dogs! He actually loves anyone that will show him some love and attention. The only thing he's not a fan of is the crate.

This boy would do best with an active family that has a fenced yard and children and/or another dog for him to play with.

This year we have taken in a number of heart worm positive pups. The fur baby that we are currently fundraising for is Felix. He is a sweet beagle/basset mix. Please help in supporting this sweet guy by donating to our PayPal, or GoFundMe account.

Organized in 2010 we are a 100% volunteer group and with the help of local veterinarians, foster homes, donations, and volunteers we are able to save hundreds of dogs from euthanasia every year.

Cindy Faltemier, Washington, hasn’t met a dog in need that she didn’t think was worth rescuing. She has taken in dogs that many people thought were too old and others that people thought were too sick to bother with saving.


She finds homes for them all, or keeps them until she can.


Five years ago Faltemier set up Dog Saver, a no-kill dog shelter on the 8 acre property she and her husband, Doug, own off Highway AJ. But Faltemier admits she has been rescuing dogs for many more years than that.


The first were neighbor dogs that showed up at her door often hungry, but occasionally hurt. One that she calls Brown Dog started coming around in 2002.


“He would come over, hang out, eat and leave, go back home,” said Faltemier.






We hold adoption events most weekends at various pet stores in St. Charles and Wentzville.

For more information and to find out where we will be feel free to Contact us.   We will have plenty of our furry, four legged friends at the event for you to meet and greet.  You may just meet your forever friend!
