Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are the only non-profit 501c3 rescue in Beaufort County, NC that houses animals for adoption. We do not have a shelter facility but are working towards this goal. We have foster homes for our animals. Animals from Beaufort and surrounding counties are rescued from animal control facilities, vetted including spay/neuter, and made ready for adoption. We have developed a network of rescues from South Carolina to as far North as New Hampshire. The goal is to rescue and move as many animals as possible to the safety of reputable rescues so they can find their new homes. At the same time we are trying to educate the public to spay and neuter their pets to help stop the overwhelming pet population in the area.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an application, vet reference check, home visit and an adoption contract. Our adoption fee is currently $150.

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.
