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 are a network of foster homes in NC, PA, NJ and NY.
We rescue all our pups(young and old) from high-kill Animal Control facilities in SC, NC and from unwanted, neglect & abusive situations in rural areas of our region.
All our rescued dogs are completely vetted at: Rutherford Vet Hospital, Rutherforton, NC (tele#828-286-9335/Michelle Toms-Greene, DVM).
When the dogs are completely vetted (ALL dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, & heartworm neg...if they test positive, they are treated. H4S CARes absorbs the expense) and can easily pass the strict requirements for a health certificate to travel out of state, we place them up on this site and other pet adoption venues. All adoption applications are processed through our home office in Rutherfordton, NC but most foster parents are personally involved & must approve each adopter as they know their foster dog best.
Why? FOR THE ADOPTABLE HOMELESS DOGS who have the ability to go forth and share unconditional love and companionship, & who would otherwise needlessly be put to death for no fault of their own.
Also, we ALWAYS spay the mama dogs, if an owner releases any puppies/litters to H4S CARes. This is never negotiable!
We do everything we can to help stop the pet overpopulation problem. Thank you, for considering adopting a rescued companion animal.

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.
