About Our Rescue Group:

H4S CARes started out as a means to help the animals at Rutherford Co, NC Animal Control, where their adoption rate was a mere 3%. This meant that 97% of the dogs taken into this high-kill facility were euthanized.
H4S knew that we could make a difference, in the adoptable one's lives.
Since the creation of H4S CARes, on January 2, 2004, we have rescued 6,600+ dogs and puppies from our area's Animal Control facilities and unwanted litters taken in directly from the public(this elliminates any chance of being exposed to diseases/parasites that many neglected strays come into Animal Control facilities have been exposed to/are harboring). We also take in adoptable dogs from full 'kill' shelters, who are in desperate need of space for incoming strays and animals being given up.
We make sure that each dog is healthy and well-socialized, before offering them up for adoption.
ALL dogs and puppies are speutered and micro-chipped upon adoption. We make NO exceptions!
We find appropriate homes/families for each dog we take in. We will never adopt a dog or pup unless we feel it is a good match, for both the dog and their furever family.
We transport our dogs to adoptive families and no-kill rescues, and foster homes in NJ, NY and CT, each 4th Saturday of every month.
WHY? Because every adoptable dog deserves a chance at love and a warm home to call their own.

We realize, in a logical perspective, that we are not going to be able to broadly change the World.
But, we know we can be an advocate of change.
We know that we can not rescue every animal in need, but little by little, we can help one animal at a time.
We know we CAN make a difference!

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.
