WE ARE A SMALL NONPROFIT GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS. WE CONDUCT A LOWCOST SPAY/NEUTER AND VACCINE PROGRAM AS WELL AS RESCUE. WE HAVE STERILIZED/VACCINATED OVER 3,000 DOGS AND CATS IN THE PAST 4 YRS. THROUGH NETWORKING WITH OTHER RESCUES AND ADOPTION CENTERS WE HAVE MANAGED TO RESCUE THOUSANDS OF DOGS AND PUPPIES SINCE 2009. MOST OF OUR ADOPTIONS ARE IN THE NORTHERN STATES. ALL OF OUR PETS COME FROM NC/VA WHERE THE EUTHANASIA RATE IN COUNTY SHELTERS ARE OVER 80%. HUNDREDS OF DOGS AND CATS ARE TAKEN IN MONTHLY AND IN MANY COUNTIES LESS THAN 2 OUT OF 10 PETS ARE ADOPTED. (THERE ARE NO SPAY NEUTER LAWS IN MOST OF THE SOUTH AND THE UNWANTED/ABANDONED PETS JUST KEEP COMING.) MANY SOUTHERN SHELTERS STILL UTTILIZE THE GAS CHAMBER AND HEART STICK EUTHANASIA, 2 VERY CRUEL FORMS OF DEATH. ALL OF OUR PETS ARE QUARANTINEED FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 WKS BEFORE LEAVING THE STATE TO ENSURE HEALTH. ALL PETS ARE SEEN BY A VETERINARIAN AND RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE OF HEALTH AND MICROCHIP PRIOR TO ADOPTION. ALL PETS ARE AGE APPROPRIATELY VACCINATED, AND PETS OVER 6 MOS ARE STERILIZED AND HEARTWORM CHECKED. WE SPAY THE MOTHER DOG OF ANY PUPPIES WE PLACE FREE OF CHARGE.

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.
