Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Greater Charlotte, NC area. As a rule we prefer to adopt no further than 1.5 hours away from Charlotte but under certain circumstances exceptions can be considered.

About Our Rescue Group:

This rescue is powered by the memory of one absolutely AMAZING rescued street dog, Bonnie. We have adopted our babies from high kill, in some cases even gassing, animal control shelters around Charlotte, NC. Our dogs are the ones that are often overlooked or ignored by other rescue groups and the public. We know they are deserving of that second chance at a fantastic life, just like Bonnie got the day she crossed our path. To that end, we work hard to make sure every adoption is a solid match because our goal is to stop our dogs from EVER being homeless again.

Come Meet our Pets:

Ongoing locations that change but are generally at local pet stores- big box and smaller locations, visits to area dog bars, weekend fairs, local farmer's markets and other carefully chosen high traffic locations. They are posted on our Facebook page in advance. We announce our adoption events via our website where this information will also be highlighted.

Our Adoption Process:

Initial completion and approval of an adoption application, once approved a time to meet the adopter is arranged and a meeting with the prospective dog set. If all goes well with these meetings, a home visit is made ( preferably all members of the household are present) by a representative of the rescue and if there are any other animals in the family a meeting scheduled as well. If the adoption is approved, a $200 donation fee (refundable within 7 days of adoption) and signage of a final adoption contract is required. A follow-up visit will be made by a representative of rescue as well.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
