This gorgeous, eye-catching beauty is named Serenity. She is a golden retriever mix, weighing about 40 pounds. She is approximately 2 years old, and we say that ‘she never meets a stranger!’ So, if you meet her and it feels like the two of you have met before or have known each other for years, that is simply part of her charming personality! She gets along great with other dogs, and, of course, absolutely loves everyone, especially meeting new people! We don't know if she is good with cats or not yet, but we can definitely test her with them to see if she is a cat lover, if need be.

Her favorite thing to do is play fetch with the other dogs... she would seriously do this all day long if she had it her way! Come meet this beautiful girl today and make her dreams of having her own family and yard to play fetch in come true! Serenity is heartworm positive, but RARE will cover the treatment with our veterinarian at no extra cost to the adopter. Heartworms are treatable and dogs can live healthy, fulfilling, and amazing lives after treatment. Please don't let this stop you from giving an animal a good home that it deserves and needs so desperately. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.


Please visit for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heartworm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.
