Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Rusty's Legacy rescues dogs from the McDowell County NC Animal Shelter which currently is a high kill shelter. We pull adoptable dogs from the shelter, we quarantine the dogs for 14 days, provide age appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter prior to adoption.
About Our Rescue Group:The mission of Rusty's Legacy is to save the lives of as many adoptable dogs from the McDowell County Animal Shelter while working towards a no kill community.
We believe that community education and low cost or free spay neuter is the road to assure that no healthy, adoptable dog will die.
Come Meet our Pets:We hold adoption events every weekend in Marion NC and the surrounding areas.
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
