Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Petsaver-NC adopts to homes both locally and out of the area with appropriate references and an approved application. Potential adopters are asked to come meet the animals locally. Petsaver-NC does not provide transportation of our foster pets to adopters.
About Our Rescue Group:Petsaver-NC is an all volunteer rescue group for dogs and puppies located near Chapel Hill, NC. Most of the animals in the network are rescued from local shelters. All animals are provided appropriate routine medical care and spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Foster caregivers keep the animals at their homes until appropriate permanent homes are located for the animals. Petsaver-NC is a no-kill organization.
Visit our Facebook page at facebook.com/petsavernc to view postings and pictures of newly adopted dogs, meet our volunteers at work, or to post comments about dogs you adopted from Petsaver-NC. We'd love to hear your happy ending stories.
VOLUNTEERS: Petsaver-NC is recruiting volunteers who share our mission of finding homes for rescued dogs and pups. We currently need enthusiastic people to walk dogs, teach them basic commands, take dogs for outings to expose them to new situations, and to handle shy dogs who lack confidence. It's a rewarding experience to transform an insecure, inexperienced rescued dog into a confident, well-mannered, much more adoptable dog who will find a forever home much easier thanks to the caring help of a dog-loving person. While you're walking for exercise or to lose weight, why not take a dog who needs human contact along with you? We invite adults, scouts, homeschooled families, or students looking for extra volunteer community service hours to join us at Petsaver-NC. Petsaver NC currently works with several high schools to help students earn school credit and mandatory service hours.
DONATIONS: Petsaver-NC currently has a need for the following new or used items:
collars, leashes, dog or puppy food (canned or dry), metal or plastic bowls, shampoo, disinfectants, tennis balls, towels, blankets, worn clothing that could be used as rags or crate bedding, stuffed toys, doggie bones, treats, and crates. If you can donate any of these items, we thank you.
