How We Care

At Donte's Den, all dogs are top dogs. Our programs cover a wide range of services for dogs who, for one reason or another, can no longer live at home.


Finding homes for dogs who no longer have anyone to care for them.


Caring for dogs and cats whose owners are no longer with them.

Military Boarding

A loving home until their owners return from deployment.

Extended Care

Caring for dogs whose owners are sick or injured.

Help a Dog


All our pups receive lots of love and attention, are properly immunized, spayed or neutered, and in good overall health. Plus, prospective pet parents undergo a thorough adoption review to ensure a lifetime of love.


There are so many ways to support the mission of love at Donte’s Den: Honor/Memorial Gift, Planned Giving, Monthly Giving or whatever suits you best.

Sponsor a Dog

You can make one lucky dog’s day! Fall in love with one of our loveable pups but can’t take them home? You can still give them all the love and care they need through your directed donations.

Corporate Sponsorships

We welcome like-minded organizations to join us in expanding our mission of love.

Our Story

A loving haven for our furry friends.

Donte’s Den is the realization of a long-time dream of Founder Marsha Panuce and her late husband Don. Named for the couple’s beloved standard Schnauzer, Donte, Donte’s Den has been thoughtfully designed to be a continuation of home for canines who need it.
