Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Carolina Coonhound Rescue is a small foster based rescue in Charleston SC. We work hard to save hounds in need of a second chance from shelters. Since we only have space based on foster availability, we are always in need of new foster families. All of our dogs are treated or started on treatment for any medical issues they may have as well as spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccines, heartworm test, fecal tests, and microchip. Our hounds are all considered "retired" and will not be adopted to hunting homes unless they are treated like family first.

About Our Rescue Group:

Carolina Coonhound Rescue was started in June of 2010. It was started to help hounds in South and North Carolina get a second chance at a family life. Many hounds in our area are used for hunting purposes only and are far to easily thrown away by hunters who no longer need them...that's where we come in. We take hounds from shelters who are no longer wanted, get them healthy, and find new homes for them.

We are an all volunteer based rescue. We don't have a shelter facility and rely on foster homes to save these dogs and to give them a place to stay until they can be placed into forever homes. We work hard to save as many hounds as we can from shelters. We are the only Coonhound Specific rescue in South Carolina.

Our Adoption Process:

We allow both in state and out of state adoptions.
Our adoption fee is $250. Out of state adopters are responsible for any transport costs.
All of our dogs have been spayed/neutered, given age appropriate vaccinations, microchiped, as well as screened and started on any treatments they may need. They are also started on flea and heartworm prevention. The adoptive owners will be responsible for continued medications that the dog may need as well as any additional vaccinations, both yearly and booster, for the adopted dog.

The first step to adoption is an application which can be filled out at http://carolinacoonhoundrescue.com/Adoption_Application.php.

This application must be filled out prior to setting up any meetings or overnight visits. Once the decision is made to adopt we will need payment of the adoption fee and a signed contract. If the dog is adopted out of state, payment of the adoption fee is due once transport is arranged but before the dog leaves Charleston SC.

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.
