About Saving Grace Animals for Adoption
About Our Shelter...
Dogs at Saving Grace are selected from local shelters where lack of kennel space keeps animals from being placed up for adoption. Before a dog comes into the Saving Grace program, it is evaluated for temperament and suitability as a family pet. The evaluation continues when the dog is brought into the Saving Grace program. Dogs do not live in kennel runs; they have access to lots of fresh air and space to run and play together with other dogs. We observe their interaction with new dogs and people on a daily basis. While at Saving Grace the dogs learn basic manners. We begin with the most important lessons, such as crate training and not jumping on people.
Once the dog is determined adoptable by Saving Grace standards, it receives any and all medical treatment necessary. This includes, but is not limited to: spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test and treatment (if necessary), worming, and flea and tick prevention. All dogs get a microchip which can be traced back to the adopter and to Saving Grace.
Come Meet Our Pets...Contact us to make an appointment to meet the dogs! Most dogs live at the home of the Executive Director, some are in foster homes. Appointments are, therefore, required for meeting the dogs.
Our Adoption Process...
All puppies and dogs at Saving Grace are crate trained, have been spayed/neutered, are up to date on their shots, are on heartworm preventative and have been microchipped. Each has been carefully screened for disposition and temperament in order to provide your home with a safe companion that will enjoy life as your new family member. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, please e-mail a completed Adoption Application to SavingGrace@nc.rr.com. An Application is required before setting up an appointment to meet with a foster home and potential adoptee. There is an adoption fee to cover medical expenses. We want to make sure we are adopting out healthy animals and provide all necessary vet care. Each animal is given a routine physical, spayed/neutered and all vaccines and deworming. They are also microchipped and tested for heartworms and treated if necessary.
