About Our Rescue Group:


WHY RESCUE?


I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society.


I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.


And I was angry.


“God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?”


God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly.


“I have done something," He replied. “I created you.”

Come Meet our Pets:


We do not currently have a shelter for the animals. We foster the animals in our own homes. We will be happy to show them to you by appointment. Please call or email to arrange. Our foster homes are in and around Columbia, SC (mainly). Out of state adoptions are ok, but same adoption procedures apply.

Our Adoption Process:


We adopt out of state at the adopter's expense. Please inquire about the process if you are out of state.


We require potential adopters to fill out an adoption application. Once we receive the application back we will check references (to be included in the application), a home visit will then be set up to see if the animal fits the family and the family fits the animal.


If the potential adopter is approved and all vet care has been finished on the pet, a non-refundable adoption fee is due via check, cash or Paypal.


We will check back on you and your new pet in a few days, 1 month and at 3 months (if there is a need, to make sure the adjustment period is a success). Should the adoption not work out, we will always take the animal back as quick as we can. It is required they are ONLY returned to us. Our screening process is geared to hopefully avoid unecessary returns. Please keep this in mind when adopting - it is intended to be a LONG TERM COMMITMENT.


Please ask the foster parent what the adoption fee is as some vary.


All animals come with the following (what the fee includes):

Vet exam, vaccines, deworming, heartworm test (dogs) or FELV/FIV test (cats/kittens), and spay or neuter.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
