Meet Carina!!! I have absolutely NO idea what mix she is but the girls all have some characteristics of long haired Whippets. What I do know is she is super cute, pretty shy yet very sweet with the softest medium length fur. Her and her sisters were dumped in a ditch and lucky for them they were rescued! Even with a shaky past she wants to be near you and watches every move checking to see if she can trust you. Carina has held out, being the last one to really come around to human touch but we are making huge strides in the trust department and she is letting me pet her more and more every day. She is very food motivated so continued training will be much easier. She will make a great companion and will do so much better with more one on one then I can give her at the rescue. Will you be her family?

Please note that we are a TX based rescue so all of our dogs are located in TX. We work with Rescue Roadtrips to transport our dogs to their new forever homes upon approval of adoption application. The reason we do this is because TX is a high-kill state due to it being over populated with unwanted dogs, but wonderful dogs, and finding homes in other states helps us to save more lives. Our adoption fee for the NE is $355 ($170 adoption and $185 transportation). You can find our application at

About Katie's Roadside Rescue - Roanoke Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

All dogs in KRR will be fully vetted and microchipped prior to adoption. Because of KRR's mission, all dogs must come back to this rescue so they never have to worry about being dumped along the road again.
Katie's Roadside Rescue is a no kill 501c3 non-profit organization with the mission of rescuing dogs left to fend for themselves. If they cannot be caught, at a minimum food and water is left for them. KRR currently does not accept owner surrenders nor do we pull from kill shelters. There seems to be plenty on the side of the road at this time.

Donations and volunteers are the heart and core of KRR and we could not function without the generous help from others. Please click on the PayPal link on the left to make donations toward our dogs' medical and housing needs. All support is greatly appreciated and needed. Financial information is posted on this site so you know where your donations are being used. We are willing at any time to provide you with information and to show that all funds are used for the animals in rescue.

Our Adoption Process...

You fill out an application at and we will call your references, vet and then be in touch to answer any questions you have about our dog. We may be able to provide videos and more pictures. We will then move toward the steps of setting up the transport for Delivery!! Simple and Fast!!
