About Our Rescue Group:

Independent Animal Rescue of WNC......I am an animal lover & owner. I have had over 12 years experience working with rescues & in a vet office and a lifetime working with animals. My family & I are now doing it on our own as an independent private rescue. We make no money here but actually loose alot. We have had great successes with our adoptions and many stay in touch. We spend our money doing this to assure wonderful homes for them and not a life of disease or hardship on the streets or even that of a shelter or worse death. We offer taking in unwanted dogs finding them great homes when we have space.

We have invested alot per animal for the procedures listed - shots, rabies, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing, wormings, flea treatments. We ask if you can assist us with these costs in full or partial is appreciated. Any amount offered helps us to help the next rescue.

We have an adoption form & microchip transfer form to be signed at the time of adoption. Health records also included for each rescue.

All rescue animals have been in a foster home environment. All animals are clear of worms, disease or cold before being around each other.

You must show proof of a lease agreement for pets or own your home.

You can make arrangements to help us with spaying, neutering & care of our fur friends. Donations of any kind are greatly appreciated.

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.
