Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

SRC serves North and South Carolina, all of Virginia, Eastern Tennessee, and Northern Georgia for the adoption of Mini Schnauzers and Standard Schnauzers. SRC may extend this area on a case by case decision when dealing with the adoption of Giant Schnauzers since these rescue organizations are so limited. SRC does not ship any of its dogs, so all adopters must be prepared to come to our area to pick their adopted canine up.

About Our Rescue Group:

Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization -- all of our adoption donations go back into helping care for other rescues. We are a group of volunteers within North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Eastern Tennessee, and Northern Georgia whose sole purpose is to rescue and secure loving, permanent homes for displaced Miniature, Standard and Giant Schnauzers.

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, 2012, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. has been in operation for has been a reputable and successful rescue organization for nine (9) years now and our organization has placed well over 1500 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.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Please go to SRC's main website and you will notice close to the bottom of the SRC Home Page a gold “donate” button just under “Please Help A Homeless Schnauzer”. Please click on that button and follow the secure link to make a credit card or checking account donation of your choice. Tax letters are available upon request. All these tax deductible donations are used to help incoming rescues with their medical needs. For your convenience here is the link to our website: http://www.schnauzerrescueofthecarolinas.org/

Come Meet our Pets:

SRC requires an application approval process which includes a vet and/or personal reference check and an informal home visit done after your application is submitted to our Placement Team. Our approval process is conducted professionally and as quickly as possible.

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..

Our Adoption Process:

Please download an application from our website to begin the adoption process. Our approval process is done quickly by our Placement Team. This consists of you submitting an application which may be downloaded from our Home Page of our website, or requested by email from our Placement Team @ our email address which is Adoptions@schnauzerrescueofthecarolinas.org and then a vet reference and home visit are conducted, both of which must be satisfactory. After that you will be sent an approval and put in touch with someone who will help you with the adoption process to expedite your adoption of the new family companion! This process does not take more than one to two weeks at the most.

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.
