About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue dog from high-kill gassing shelters in North and South Carolina. We choose the most "unadoptable" dogs who are literally hours away from euthanasia...with a little TLC, these dogs experience a beautiful transformation.

Our Adoption Process:

Our fees range from $150-$250 depending on the amount of vetting the dog has received as well as the shelter the dog was pulled from. We require the potential adopter to fill out an adoption application, we also require a home visit to be done.

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.
