Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Mooresville, NC approx 30 miles north of Charlotte and convenient to I77 and I40.

We do adopt out of state, but all adopters must come for a meet and greet.

About Our Rescue Group:

Atlantic Rottweiler Rescue Foundation (ARRF) is based in Raleigh, NC and was created to help rescue and rehabilitate Rottweilers in need. In addition, we are helping to educate the public on spaying/neutering, general care and the many talents of Rotties.

Each person on our committee owns and/or fosters a Rottweiler. We want everyone to know how wonderful life with a Rottweiler is! We are dedicated to rescuing Rottweilers and finding them a wonderful new family to share their lives with.

To be successful in our rescue goals, we understand that it takes community awareness and cooperation. To help facilitate this, we host a Rottie Forum. All animal lovers are welcome!! Although we are partial to Rotties, there is tons of info for all. Please feel free to stop by, take a look and if you want to contribute to the discussions, you just need to register.

Our Adoption Process:

Adopting a Rottie is a long term commitment. We want our applicants to be prepared for that commitment and dedicated to a high level of care for their new companion pet. To ensure this, ARRF has a 5 step adoption process:


Step 1 : Fax, Mail or Email your completed Adoption Application to adopt@arrfnc.com Incomplete Applications WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.

Step 2 : ARRF will contact you and confirm we have received your application (please email us at arrf@arrfnc.com if you have not gotten a response within 72 hours)

Step 3 : ARRF will review your application and confirm the information provided. This can take a week or longer depending on how quickly we receive responses.

Step 4 : ARRF will contact you to schedule a home visit. Home visits allow us to get to know you, prepare you for your new pet and answer any questions you may have.

Step 5 : ARRF will complete a review of all findings and contact you with a final decision. Upon approval, ARRF will arrange for your new family member to come home.

We are dedicated to saving as many lives as we can and understand that the faster this process is completed, the faster we can take in another dog. Please be sure to provide us complete, detailed information and all contact information to minimize delays.

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.
