Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Puppy Love Rescue is a small private home based rescue located in Southport, North Carolina. We primarily deal with unwanted and unloved puppies. Our puppies come in from all over NC, and sometimes from out of state. The puppies are bathed, ears cleaned, nails trimmed, given their first set of shots, de-wormed, treated for fleas/ticks, started on their heart worm medication, held, kissed and spoiled. The next day, it's off to the vet's office for a complete physical examination and then the puppies are treated for any medical needs the vet thinks necessary. After the vet says they are healthy and ready to go to their new forever homes, then they are listed for adoption.

About Our Rescue Group:

Puppy Love Rescue is a small home based rescue and we take in unwanted and unloved puppies. Some of our puppies come from over crowded shelters and some come from private owners that were not expecting to have puppies.
The majority of the time the puppies that come into our rescue have been neglected or just plain ignored and left to fend for themselves. The shelters that call us are generally the over crowded shelters that do not want to put the puppies in the shelter because they know the puppies are then exposed to all kinds of susceptible diseases. Puppy Love Rescue is the only rescue around that will take in litters of puppies, and these precious babies are taken care of 24/7 in our home.

Come Meet our Pets:

It is extremely important that you see where your new puppy lives, how he/she has been taken care of. It is not good for the puppy to be around other dogs and people until after they have had shots and been examined by a veterinarian. If the shelter or rescue will not let you come to their home to see how the dog/puppy has been taken care of and give you a copy of their medical history,
Unfortunately here in Indiana we too have good and bad shelters/rescue groups and humane society organizations.

Our Adoption Process:

All of our adopters are required to read and fill out an application/contract prior to coming to meet the puppy or puppies they may be interested in adopting. The puppies we get into our rescue are already un-wanted and un-loved. They are scared and hungry and have been through hell, so it is imparative to us that when you and your family decide to adopt a puppy it is for the rest of the puppies life.

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.
