My name is Cheyenne and I am less than 2 years old and weigh all of 5 pounds -- a tiny black Dachshund/Chihuahua female with wisps of white on my chest.  SRC saved me from certain death since the shelter was going to euthanize me the next day if SRC had not made me an honorary Schnauzer!  I looked so frightened that the volunteer simply could not let me die a needless death -- now I am being prepared for a loving home!  Hurray!    So much for being spayed--my little belly just kept growing and my vet exam confirmed I am expecting at least 4 little babies.  If you would like to adopt one of them put in your application early.  Of course they will be left with Mother long enough to be weaned and ready to go out into the world happy and healthy!  WHAT A MIRACLE.  SRC was able to save not just one life but 4+ others.  We are so grateful.  I am so sweet and loving to everyone -- just a great little lap baby myself!


Cheyenne has now been spayed and gotten all her vaccinations.  Apparently she is a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix because she is so small with very short legs and very low to the ground.  This gives her a very unique appearance and a very loving personality.   She is ready for adoption.  Such a sweetheart!  She is a true lap-baby and loves to give kisses.  This little girl is definitely a cuddle bug and wants someone who will give her lots of love!  She would probably make a good therapy dog since she has not yet met a stranger.  She loves everyone she meets with no reservations whatsoever.  Wouldn't it be nice if we could all be that way?!? This little canine is not the least bit prejudiced.




On 11-7-16 I delivered 5 tiny babies and all except one who passed shortly after being born are doing exceptionally well.  The other was so small that he simply was not able to survive and he was held and loved until the time for him to cross the Rainbow Bridge was there.  His Mom did her best yet this tiny one simply was not meant for this world and has gone on to a better place.  The other four are doing great and have a fantastic Mommy who does her best to assure that their every need is met!  Soon their eyes will be opening and play time will begin.  Right now they are eating, sleeping and eating some more.  Mom is taking great care of them and resting up from her ordeal.  We at  SRC will see that they get everything necessary to assure they remain happy and healthy.  Already been seen by our vet once they are doing well and we anticipate that they will continue to thrive.  Applications will be accepted for their adoption yet they will not be removed from their Mother until they are fully ready to be weaned and have socialized with their siblings to assure that they are emotionally ready to separate also. Photo of the family is posted -- no one is named yet -- posted as puppy 1 - 4 at this point.


 SRC#1829 CHEYENNE's  Story

CHEYENNE with this unique identification number: (SRC#1829) came into SRC's care recently and is being  prepared for adoption by a foster family who have gone thru our approval process.  She was terrified by her recent experience and thus far is hiding in her crate.  Her foster dad has been able to get her to come out of her crate by offering crackers and bits of cheese which she absolutely loves!  They are beginning to make friends and although Cheyenne has been traumatized SRC believes that she will make a wonderful companion in a calm atmosphere.  More will be posted about her as she adjusts to her foster home.  She really is a cutie and has a sweet personality.  We at SRC just want her to have that loving home she deserves.


When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm  tested, de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date,  neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have  been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release of this dog is at the discretion of the SRC Core Team. 



Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $200


When ready for adoption this canine will  have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will now be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption.  SRC volunteers strive to do all of this for the well-being of their rescued canine and for a successful. It is our worthy mission to assure that each dog goes to a loving and stable home whose family members will treat each rescued dog that SRC helps as a beloved member of their immediate family.

About Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. (SRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization -- all of our adoption donations go back into helping care for other rescues. We are a group of volunteers whose area of operation is within the areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Eastern Tennessee. This non-profit organization's sole purpose is to prevent cruelty of animals specifically canines by rescuing them and secure loving, permanent homes for displaced Miniature, Standard and Giant Schnauzers and to help educate the public about their breed traits and health and nutritional needs to assure their future needs..

Federal Tax Id #27-0061326

SRC applied for incorporation on June 18, 2003 and approved by the N.C. Secretary of State on July 8, 2003.

N.C. Charitable Solicitation License # SL009656

"Financial information about this organization and a copy of its license are available from the State Solicitation Licensing Branch at 919-807-2214 . The license is not an endorsement by the State."

SRC fosters each one of our rescues in a loving family environment and spends many personal hours working with them to ensure that they are ready (both physically and emotionally) to move into his or her new forever home when adopted. Every rescue spends a minimum of two weeks in their foster home before being released for adoption. This allows the foster parent to give the new family a very good idea about the demeanor of their newly adopted dog, and to help them understand what to expect when taking their new family companion home. Each SRC dog is vetted by an SRC approved vet. The dog has been given a thorough examination, been de-wormed, been given all necessary vaccinations, been spay/neutered, micro-chipped and any other medical procedures deemed necessary by our vet have been done ( such as dentals, ear cleaning, nail trim, etc.) The micro-chip is done for their future safety prior to being adopted from our custody and SRC remains secondary after the adoptive parents register their micro-chip so that if they should become lost or stolen and the adoptive parents are not available, SRC would be able to claim the dog and hold them until we could contact the adoptive parents. SRC is committed to the full lifetime happiness and welfare of each rescue that comes into our custody whether it is a Mini, Standard, Giant, or "Honorary" Schnauzer. As of July, 2015, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. has been in operation for has been a reputable and successful rescue organization for twelve (12) years now and our organization has placed well over 2500 Schnauzers and "honorary" Schnauzers plus made a large number of referrals that resulted in saving the lives of many worthy canines. In fact, our organization has even placed about 14 felines with courtesy listings and even one parrot, so our worthy mission is alive and well. We are most grateful to all those generous and dedicated volunteers that have put in so many long hours and have asked nothing in return except that these animals live and be happy! Bless them all.

Come Meet Our Pets...

SRC requires a completed adoption application as part of our approval process which also includes a vet and/or personal reference check and an informal home visit done after your application is submitted to our Placement Team for their review. Our approval process is conducted professionally and as quickly as possible.

SRC works diligently to match the right dogs with the appropriate forever homes -- there is a Volunteer Intake Coordinator that specifically works with this assignment to assure that our adoptions are successful and happy ones. All SRC members are volunteers and are unpaid for their services so that financial donations may go to the medical needs of our rescued dogs.

Applicant's specific questions may be answered as soon as the approval process is concluded. Contact is arranged with the rescue dog's foster parents after approval is received so that approved applicants may have any questions answered about the dog of their choice.

SRC also provides guidance for new adoptive parents upon request and is thoroughly committed to their worthy mission. Each dog in our care receives a thorough vet exam, de-worming, necessary vaccines, spay/neuter, micro-chip, and any medical needs addressed as necessary by our vet prior to being placed in loving SRC foster care for evaluation of a minimum of two weeks. The two week requirement assures that each foster family will be able to give the adoptive family a better idea of the demeanor of their new family companion when he or she is adopted.

A tax deductible donation according to the age of the canine adopted will be requested shortly before the time of the adoption of your selected rescue. This is NOT the purchase of a pet, this is a donation for the medical needs of future incoming rescues and is therefore helping needy canines that might otherwise perish without your assistance..

Our Adoption Process...

Please download an application from our website to begin the adoption process. Our approval process is done quickly by our Placement Team. This consists of you submitting an adoption application which may be downloaded from the Home Page of our website, or requested by email from our Placement Team @ our email address which is .

Then once the completed application is reviewed and accepted, a vet reference and an informal home visit are conducted, both of which must be satisfactory. After that you will be sent an approval and put in touch with the foster parent of the dogs you are interested in so that you may ask questions about the dog. If your situation fits well with that dog, then someone with our Core Team will help you finalize the adoption and you may make arrangements to pick up your dog! This process does not take more than one to two weeks at the most as long as we are able to get a home visit scheduled in your location.
