Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We service Burke County, NC, and the immediate surrounding counties. We have a satellite liaison in Columbia, MD, who will be responsible for conducting home visits and reference checks for all potential adopters interested in our animals in that immediately area. All our animals are up-to-date on vaccinations, health needs, and spayed or neutered unless they are in the puppy/kitten stage. At that point, we require certification from the potential adopter that he or she will spay/neuter when animal is old enough - a deposit and follow up visit is required. We do not adopt "on the spot" and all potential adopters must go through a rigorous screening so that our placements are a win/win situation for both animal and new family.

About Our Rescue Group:

We have been in existence a little over a year. We are 501 certified as a reputable nonprofit in animal rescue. We love our animals and want only the best for them. We represent all walks of life in our board of directors with one common goal: to fight animal abuse and abandonment and to find good loving homes for as many animals as we can. We are committed to our cause and we are not an "adopt on the spot" agency -- we take time to find the right home for our animals. We can tell you about each animal individually because we love them and get to know everything about their personalities and traits. We will never be rich ---- but we believe our animals will because we are committed to finding only the best homes for them.

We do accept Pay Pal online

Come Meet our Pets:

In NC, we do a once a month presentation at Petco in Hickory but we are willing to set up "play dates" and meet and greets. Please check our website for when we will be at Petco. All inquiries will be taken seriously and we will respond to all.

Our Adoption Process:

Please view our animals and feel free to e-mail us with questions. We try and place our animals with families who would be a good mesh so that both the animal and the family will have a wonderful experience. You can visit our website to complete an application and e-fax it to us or mail it or e-mail it back. We will check references and set up a home visit once the animal is identified. Our satellite volunteer in Columbia, MD, is available to conduct home visits at that location. The adoption fee is $100 - seniors always receive a 25% reduction in adoption fee as does a veteran or military person. Both discounts may be combined. If we deliver the animal to adopter and adopter is more than 60 miles away, we ask that transporation in the way of gasoline costs please be reimbursed to us (receipts will be provided). It is not mandatory but will help us defray costs. We are not in animal rescue for the money ---we are in it to find good homes for all our animals.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
