Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We believe that community education and low cost or free spay neuter is the road to assure that no healthy, adoptable dog will die.
Look for us at pet adoption events at the Walmart Plaza in Marion NC onthe 2nd and 4th Saturday. Pet adoptions will soon be moved to the Tractor Supply in Marion. We are at the Tractor Supply in Black Mtn the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.
Pets can be met by appointment by calling Jeri at 828-460-3190 or email us at Rusty'sLegacyNC@aol.com
All dogs are indoor/outdoor dogs, there will be no dog left on a chain EVER, fenced in yards are preferred. Certain breeds of dogs will require prior experience with the breed or breed type.
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.
