Facts about Cinnamon Toast

Description: Cinnamon Toast is a Labrador/Golden Retriever mix—yellowish-tannish-white, with white markings. Her amber eyes are surrounded by dark brown eyeliner. She just has a bit more to lose to be ready for beach-bod season!

Personality: Cinnamon Toast is such a happy-go-lucky and friendly lady. Always glad to meet new people, you can see it in her wagging tail and adorable smile. Check out the video below to see how wonderful she is with a 12-year-old child she'd never even seen before! Look how she runs around exploring: you’d absolutely never know she’s ten years old.

Cinnamon needs to go potty several times during the day, and she tells me she's looking for a home where someone is around a lot and needs to be an only dog. She consistently responds to commands, such as Come, Shake, and Sit. If you like a couch cuddler, this is your girl. She loves her crate and often goes in to snooze on her own when the door is open.

Cinnamon quickly learned her leash manners, and shows no aggression when seeing other dogs or passersby while walking with her foster mom and other IAR volunteers. One of her favorite things is riding in the car. She jumps right in . . . poking her nose out the window to smell what's in the air or peeking her head next to your seat next to your seat to say hello. With her energy level, Cinnamon absolutely belies her age, and even enjoys chasing balls! She loves running around, as you can see in the video, and so would very much appreciate a fenced yard.

Animal History: Cinnamon Toast came from a local shelter, along with her sister, Honey Dew. They were both adopted at age 2 months and surrendered at age 10 years to the same shelter. The owners said they were moving and couldn't take the girls.

About Independent Animal Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

IAR started with one woman's big dreams, a bigger heart, and a very distinctive purple pickup truck that helped her rescue countless numbers of unwanted, abused, and homeless Triangle pets. Originally founded in 1994, IAR earned an official 501 (c)(3) status in 1995. IAR is currently governed by a Board of Directors, managed by elected officers, and supported by over 100 unpaid volunteers. There are no paid positions within IAR, so 100% of all donations directly support animal care and rehabilitation.


Our mission is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We shall strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We will serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth.


At IAR, we believe that the welfare of animals is paramount. We feel that we can alleviate problems associated with animal overpopulation and abandonment using a 4-pronged approach: (1) Rescue and adoption of unwanted and abused animals; (2) funding of spay/neuter; (3) education and outreach on animal welfare to our youngest members of the community; and (4) legislation and lobbying efforts on behalf of animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our wonderful IAR cats and kittens are out and about greeting folks at the Durham Petsmart (Patterson Place) and Petco (South Square) locations almost every Saturday and Sunday (1pm-5pm). In addition, some of our cats are housed at these stores for short durations. You can visit these kitties anytime during store hours! If you see a kitty that you'd like to meet and possibly adopt, please fill out an online application at www.animalrescue.net. We will be in touch shortly!

IAR dogs and puppies are available for "meet and greet" at the Durham Petsmart (Patterson Place) on the first and third Sundays each month (2pm-4pm). Please check our calendar for specific dates and locations where you may meet your new best friend!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Requirements

  • 20-year commitment to the animal

  • You may not be an undergraduate student or member of the military

  • You must be a US citizen

  • You must allow a home visit (an IAR volunteer to visit your home prior to adoption.)


Adoption Process

  • Fill out an adoption interest application HERE or call us at 919-403-2221. A volunteer will contact you shortly to discuss your application.

  • Our goal is finding lifelong, loving homes for our animals, so we try to find the best match between animal and adopter. We can help advise you on which animals to meet based on your situation.

  • You can meet some of our animals at our monthly adoption fairs, or we can arrange for a meeting in the foster home. If it’s a good match, the foster parent will come to visit your home in person. This is to make sure your home is safe and secure for a new companion animal.

  • Note: IAR makes every effort to please our adopters, but our first concern must be for the animal’s welfare. We reserve the right to deny any application.
