Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Southern Siberian Rescue is based out of Raleigh, NC and serve SE states only (NC, SC, VA, WV, KY, GA, TN) due to our required home check. We will try to serve other areas, only if there is no comparable Siberian Rescue or Siberian in your area. If we have a volunteer in your area that can do a home check for us, we will ask that you be prepared to drive to Raleigh, NC to meet the foster dog of interest. You will need to bring all of your existing pets and immediate family members to meet our dogs. We need to know that it is a good match for all involved. For local adopters, we will bring the foster dog(s) of interest to you at the time of the home check. We will not and do not ship our foster dogs.

SSR can not and will not hold dogs for anyone. If we do, that means another Siberian will die in a shelter because a shelter dogs time is very limited, as is our foster space. We do our best to process applications in the order received and first application gets first interest in our foster dog(s). We understand that there will be scheduling conflicts with home checks and meet and greets with our foster homes and foster dogs. We will accommodate for that if a potential adopter has interest in a particular foster dog in our program.

About Our Rescue Group:

Southern Siberian Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers responsibly rescuing Siberian Huskies in need throughout North Carolina and surrounding states. Our sole purpose and priority is to help unwanted, misunderstood, abandoned or neglected Siberians find homes. We do this by providing needed health care, rehabilitation and training for all our foster dogs and carefully screening potential adopters. The Siberian Husky is not a breed for everyone and adopters need to understand this breed and all of its quirks and beauty. We also spend a great deal of time educating potential owners and the public about the Siberian Husky, their special requirements, temperament, personalities and traits. We promote the importance of adopting from a reputable rescue or working with a responsible breeder when inviting a Siberian to your home. If you chose not to rescue, please contact us at SouthernSibes@yahoo.com on how to find a reputable breeder. With so many homeless Siberians and Siberians facing death in shelters, it goes without saying that we are serious advocates on spay and neutering your pets. Not only is it the responsible thing to do, it is the right thing to do medically. Statistics show that unaltered females have a higher risk of mammary cancer and unaltered males are a higher risk for testicular cancer. PLEASE love your pets and spay or neuter them.

Come Meet our Pets:

Southern Siberian Rescue has volunteers across the state of North Carolina that foster our dogs in their personal homes. We do not have a facility that you can visit. Please email us at SouthernSibes@yahoo.com to find out how to meet the dogs. You can also visit our Events Calendar at www.SouthernSiberian.com to find out where we will be with the foster dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

To begin our adoption process, please fill out our adoption application at www.southernsiberian.com, under How to Adopt. We check both vet reference on existing pets and personal references. A homecheck is mandatory, whether it is done by one of our volunteers and you come meet our foster dogs or we bring the foster dog that you are interested in to you. We do this to be sure it's a good fit for all involved, not to see if your house is clean or not. We strive to provide a happy, loving, permanent home for our foster dogs.

Our adoption fee is $250, which helps offset the cost of veterinary care. All foster dogs are adopted out healthy, up to date on vaccines, spay or neutered, microchipped, on monthy heartworm preventative and Frontline and a limited slip collar.

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.
