SRC fosters each one of our rescues in a loving family environment and spends many personal hours working with them to ensure that they are ready (both physically and emotionally) to move into his or her new forever home when adopted. Every rescue spends a minimum of two weeks in their foster home before being released for adoption. This allows the foster parent to give the new family a very good idea about the demeanor of their newly adopted dog, and to help them understand what to expect when taking their new family companion home. Each SRC dog is vetted by an SRC approved vet. The dog has been given a thorough examination, been de-wormed, been given all necessary vaccinations, been spay/neutered, micro-chipped and any other medical procedures deemed necessary by our vet have been done ( such as dentals, ear cleaning, nail trim, etc.) The micro-chip is done for their future safety prior to being adopted from our custody and SRC remains secondary after the adoptive parents register their micro-chip so that if they should become lost or stolen and the adoptive parents are not available, SRC would be able to claim the dog and hold them until we could contact the adoptive parents. SRC is committed to the full lifetime happiness and welfare of each rescue that comes into our custody whether it is a Mini, Standard, Giant, or "Honorary" Schnauzer. As of July, 2015, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. has been in operation for has been a reputable and successful rescue organization for twelve (12) years now and our organization has placed well over 2500 Schnauzers and "honorary" Schnauzers plus made a large number of referrals that resulted in saving the lives of many worthy canines. In fact, our organization has even placed about 14 felines with courtesy listings and even one parrot, so our worthy mission is alive and well. We are most grateful to all those generous and dedicated volunteers that have put in so many long hours and have asked nothing in return except that these animals live and be happy! Bless them all.
Should you want to join our SRC family and help to save needy rescues.

and one will be sent to you right away. These may now be downloaded directly from our website for your convenience.
SRC works diligently to match the right dogs with the appropriate forever homes -- there is a Volunteer Intake Coordinator that specifically works with this assignment to assure that our adoptions are successful and happy ones. All SRC members are volunteers and are unpaid for their services so that financial donations may go to the medical needs of our rescued dogs.
Applicant's specific questions may be answered as soon as the approval process is concluded. Contact is arranged with the rescue dog's foster parents after approval is received so that approved applicants may have any questions answered about the dog of their choice.
SRC also provides guidance for new adoptive parents upon request and is thoroughly committed to their worthy mission. Each dog in our care receives a thorough vet exam, de-worming, necessary vaccines, spay/neuter, micro-chip, and any medical needs addressed as necessary by our vet prior to being placed in loving SRC foster care for evaluation of a minimum of two weeks. The two week requirement assures that each foster family will be able to give the adoptive family a better idea of the demeanor of their new family companion when he or she is adopted.
A tax deductible donation according to the age of the canine adopted will be requested shortly before the time of the adoption of your selected rescue. This is NOT the purchase of a pet, this is a donation for the medical needs of future incoming rescues and is therefore helping needy canines that might otherwise perish without your assistance..
Then once the completed application is reviewed and accepted, a vet reference and an informal home visit are conducted, both of which must be satisfactory. After that you will be sent an approval and put in touch with the foster parent of the dogs you are interested in so that you may ask questions about the dog. If your situation fits well with that dog, then someone with our Core Team will help you finalize the adoption and you may make arrangements to pick up your dog! This process does not take more than one to two weeks at the most as long as we are able to get a home visit scheduled in your location.
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.
