Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt anywhere in the United  States  and  Canada.  We have affordable transportation  available  to most northeastern states.  We also have a private  driver  that  delivers  to  your  door.  Adopted pets are delivered in less than 24 hours once leaving our rescue!  Adopters are also welcome to drive down to pick their new family members up if preferred. For our pets to be flown they must be in the cabin with someone.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small nonprofit group. We rely only on our adoption fees to survive. We have been rescuing, vetting, and rehabilitating dogs and puppies since 2009. We take in dogs and puppies from our county kill shelter as well as abandoned and injured dogs and puppies, regardless of their age or any health issues. We do not turn any away due to health issues. We have taken in dogs with hearworms, mange, physical handicaps, injuries, severe malnutrition, etc. You name it, we've probably seen it! We get these pooches back to good health then begin our search for just the right home for this pet! One advantage we have over other rescues is that two of our volunteers are in wheelchairs, so many of our pooches are already used to being around individuals with special needs!

We also help individuals in our community rehearsal their pets if needed. When an individual agrees to allow us to rehome their puppies, we spay their mother dog for them free of charge.

We also offer low cost spay neuter transport service locally. We also recommend local and out of state spay neuter voucher programs as needed.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do hold adoption events at pet stores during the warmer months, however most of our adoptions are on line.

Our Adoption Process:

We do require an adoption application and an adoption contract, which can be found on our website at carolinacaninerescuenc.com Adoption fees vary. You must be at least 20 yrs. of age to apply. You must have a vet reference for current or previous pets, or have a 2 good personal references (if you don't have a vet reference).

All of our available pets are rescued from NC and VA where the county animal shelters euthanize up to 100% of the animals. Many of the southern county shelters still euthanize with the gas chamber and by heart stick.

Each of our pets are quarantined for a minimum of 2 weeks before going to their new home to ensure health. Each pet is checked by our veterinarian and receives a certificate of health and is microchipped. All pets are given their age appropriate vaccinations and dewormed. Pets over 6 months of age are sterilized and heartworm checked. Veterinary records accompany each pet. (Our pets may be posted in more than one location in an effort to maximize exposure so we can get these fur babies adopted to make room for those pets waiting to be saved!) If for some reason your adoption isn't working out within the first 2 weeks, our rescue will take the pet back and refund your adoption fee. (We do make every effort to make sure the pet is a good match for your home before leaving the rescue, including speaking with the foster and watching their videos on our YouTube channel CCR923.) All of our pets are in foster homes. We do not have a facility.

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.
