About Our Rescue Group:

Hi, We are Tonya & Chris! We started our rescue in July 2009. We started the rescue after adopting our 2 girls Shila and Zoey. They have brought so much joy and love into our lives.... When we saw the high turn over on dogs in this area... We decided we needed to try and make a difference. We want to educate the public about the breeds they adopt from us. We believe if people knew what they were getting into and had the knowledge, before they saw the cute puppy at the pet store that only wants your money, it would make a difference. Not every breed is right for everyone. Knowledge is power! At the same time we will NOT judge people for making bad choices... We are not here to judge. I can understand how easy it is to look at those cute little puppy eyes and not be able to say no. We also understand things happen...
So we rescue dogs from the Onslow KILL shelter. We will accept owner surrenders if we have the room. As with any business networking is key. We need YOUR help. We do this for love of the dogs but it costs us money. We need donations. You can donate money through www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=9038672
You can email us anytime if you have dog supplies.... We will take any kind...If we can't use them we will get them to someone that can! ie. dog food, shampoo, grooming supplies, treats, bones, dog kennels, dog houses, flea and tick meds, toys, nail trimmers, batteries etc. Money contributions will go towards vet bills and expenses for the dogs. We are not yet a 501 but we are in the process...If anyone could help us with that that would be appreciated too!!!
We also have a dream of being able to open a dog park one day.... We are in the process of looking for a new home that has lots of land for us to run our dog rescue better and have a section for everyone to bring their best friends to play!

Thank you Jaime Boatwright... She is our dog trainer. Jaime helps us rehab any dogs that are in need of rehab to make them more adoptable. If you need a dog trainer, basic or behavioral...CALL JAIME 910-526-3297

A 1 mile dog walk to show our support for harsher animal cruelty laws and to remember these 100 dogs that were killed because a business was done with them.

Our Adoption Process:

** We run the rescue out of our private residence, thus we do not have people come to us for liability reasons**
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs the first thing you will need to do is email us. Send us your name, address, phone number and which dog you are interested in. We will call you back within 48 hours to do an initial phone interview. This way if you do not qualify you don't waste time filling out a time consuming application. After the phone interview you will be sent the full application explaining all our rules and fees. Our adoption fee is 200 dollars. There are going to be requirements as the dogs we have are very special. These dogs have already had enough trauma in their lives and this process is meant to protect them from any further trauma! The main rules are you must have a fenced in area and the dogs must live inside! Our dogs will be adopted to you with a clean bill of health, fixed and up to date on shots!

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
