Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We welcome qualified adopters from both in and out of state and have placed dogs in homes from Maine to Florida and westward in states east of the Mississippi River.

About Our Rescue Group:

Save the Strays Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer 501c3 public charity and no-kill humane organization whose primary mission is rescuing and rehoming abandoned & unwanted dogs. We try to find permanent homes for the dogs we rescue, both through direct adoption and through cooperation with other like-minded rescues and shelters.

All of our dogs receive age-appropriate vaccinations.Those six months and older are spayed or neutered and tested for heartworms before adoption.

Many of the dogs we rescue are older and / or have serious injuries or medical conditions. We provide whatever veterinary care they need to return them to adoptable condition. We have rescued and placed blind dogs, dogs with physical disabilities (amputations, congenital deformities, etc.) and dogs with chronic medical conditions that require ongoing medication (heart conditions, diabetes, lupus, Cushings syndrome, etc.). Because we do not euthanize rescued dogs to make room for others, some of these dogs may be with us for a number of years or even for life.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

All donations are fully tax-deductible and are used solely to care for animals' needs.

Come Meet our Pets:

We take adoptable dogs to Petco at 1265 Broad Street, Sumter, SC, for Petco's National Adoption Days each month. We alternate between Saturdays and Sundays. In November, we will be there on Sunday, Nov. 8, from 2 to 5 p.m. In December, we will be there on Saturday, Dec. 5. Stop by and say hello!

Our Adoption Process:

We are a home-based rescue, so we have no shelter facility or regular hours. Our adoption process begins with our application. (Please email us at and we will send this to you.) Once applicants are approved to adopt, we make an appointment for them to meet the dog in which they are interested. If all goes well, the applicant can take the dog home at that time.

Our adoption fees usually range from $60 to $150, depending on the age, breed and condition of the dog. We sometimes reduce or waive fees for special needs and older dogs, as well as those who have been in rescue for a long time. Adoption fees are fully refundable for 30 days after adoption (minus any costs we must pay for return transport, if applicable.)

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
