READ THE ENTIRE BIO TO LEARN ABOUT SRC'S ADOPTION PROCESS AND THE DOG YOU ARE INTERESTED IN.
Please note: Our dogs are NOT located in Lenoir, NC. They are in foster homes throughout NC, SC, and VA. You must be willing to drive to the dogs foster home in order to adopt it. The location of each dog is listed at the bottom of its bio.
Our Available Dogs are updated daily. If you see a dog on our site, it is available for adoption on that day. Emails asking if a dog is available for adoption will not be answered.
Just as the Available Dogs are updated daily, so are the bios. The bios are very descriptive and tell everything we know about a dog. If something is not listed in a bio, we do not know it at the time you are reading it. Emails asking for more information will not be answered.
BEFORE you can meet any of our dogs, you must be approved to adopt. This means you must first download an application from our website and submit it via email or fax (910-401-1317). A vet check or a reference check is then completed and if that goes well a home visit is done. The entire process takes 3-7 days normally, depending on your location. If we do not have anyone in your area to do your home visit we will ask you to reach out to local vets offices, shelters, and rescues to get this done.
Please do not apply to adopt a dog if you are not prepared to welcome it into your home within two weeks of applying. We do not hold dogs and we adopt them out on a first come first served basis based on a completed adoption process.
SRC does not adopt out its dogs to families with children under ten years of age. This is for the protection of the dogs and for the protection of the children.
Once you are approved to adopt you must make your donation online via our website and sign an adoption contract BEFORE you pick up your new dog. SRC does NOT do meet and greets on the same day as adoptions so if you want to meet the dog first, you must make two trips to the foster home. Keep in mind that if, while you are waiting to meet a dog, another approved applicant decides to commit to it, the dog is no longer available for adoption.
UPDATE AS OF JUNE 12, 2012
Alice (1206) has her two foster dads wrapped around her little paw! They are absolutely in love with this precious little baby! It appears that with the energy that this female Mini Schnauzer has now that she is fully recovered, she could not be over one year old! She is so playful that her foster dads really wish that they had even half her energy! She plays beautifully with all her foster canine siblings and keeps them hopping all the time. Alice loves cats! She has absolutely no aggression toward them whatsoever and just wants them to play with her. She walks well on a leash and is already house-broken. Alice LOVES toys of any kind AND she loves to chew on them too, so that puppy behavior has not left her yet. She will sleep in a crate however that is a thing of the past since she also LOVES to sleep with her foster parents! She is such an adorable little girl, who could make her sleep by herself???? This sweet little girl is apparently a purebred Mini with a long docked tail and nature ears that point toward the heavens where she had to have come from! Nothing this sweet could have been from anywhere else! She is still very much puppy and definitely needs another dog in the family that adopts her so that she will have one to play and expend some of that extra energy. She loves to run too, so a fenced yard or active family that loves to do a lot of running would be a definite plus. This little girl is definitely ready for her new family and she will be a great addition to theirs!
Alice MUST have a fenced in yard in her new home and she must have another dog to play with at this time.
UPDATE AS OF JUNE 2, 2012: Dear little Alice has finally gotten the opportunity to settle into a loving SRC foster home after a couple of "false" starts with foster homes that just were not prepared to offer this precious little girl what she needed and just a little time to settle in. After all this precious baby had been thru so much already and she had no earthly idea what the next set of humans that she was exposed to would do to her! Naturally she was excited when she came into a normal home and got a soft bed with clean dogs and actual food that did not have flies or mold in it! Alice just needed a little time to collect herself and adjust but she ended up in boarding once again only a few hours after her first foster experience so SRC worked intelligently to get her into the right foster home that would help her adjust. Now she is already getting settled in and is doing so much better already! She will fit right in to normal activity in no time, and her life will never be the same! Of course that is a good thing.... a really great thing actually! Keep watch for updates and you will be amazed just how quickly Alice will be ready for a permanent home of her very own!!
Should you be interested in her future, let us know at SRC and we could put a hold on her for the future! Her future is looking brighter every day, and you just might want to be a part of it very soon before the list of those that want her becomes far too long! She is already so cute and sweet that this little baby-doll will be adopted in the very near future!
ALICE IS NOW COMPLETELY VETTED AND READY TO MOVE TO HER FOSTER HOME. SHE IS ALREADY VERY FRIENDLY AND BEGINNING TO SHOW A PLAYFUL SIDE. SHE SHOULD MAKE A WONDERFUL FAMILY COMPANION FOR A LOVING HOME. ALICE IS HEART-WORM NEGATIVE, FECAL NEGATIVE, HAS RECEIVED A DENTAL, HAS ALL HER VACCINATIONS, INCLUDING INTRA-NASAL BORDATELLA, AND HAS ALSO BEEN MICRO-CHIPPED. JUST ADD LOVE AND PATIENCE AND YOU WILL HAVE THE PERFECT FAMILY COMPANION! 05-19-2012
RESCUED DOGS CONFISCATED FROM HOARDER -- ON HOLD PENDING EVALUATION
This rescued dog ALICE (SRC #1206) has just been rescued from a local animal shelter and it is currently on medical hold until SRC has it fully examined and evaluated. This canine and approximately 100 others were confiscated in an animal cruelty situation so every one of them have suffered horrible abuses that many of us could never fathom happening! The person that hoarded them had very deranged ideas about how to care for animals and while some of the practices were abominable, there were others aimed at keeping them from starving to death or contracting heart-worms. Each of these dogs was found to be heart-worm negative although the atmosphere they survived in was fifthly beyond belief and infested with mosquitoes and other parasites. Many of these animals were almost feral and a number of them had to be euthanized due to their conditions still there were a larger number that had the possibility of a future so SRC stepped up to help the ones that were simply frightened and in need of love, comfort, and the rebuilding of their self esteem not to mention complete medical vetting! This is a monumental financial and physical task yet SRC can not walk away from these precious ones when we see their desperate need! SRC has taken these dogs to ANIMAL HOUSE VET HOSPITAL in Rutherford College, NC where Dr. E.J. Kennedy and his professional staff will be checking them out thoroughly to determine exactly what these little dogs need. Dr. Kennedy has an extensive background in emergency medicine and has a very special touch with animals anyway. We at SRC trust him completely and would recommend this vets office to anyone that wants quality care at reasonable cost. Right now each of these dogs are in the loving hands of Dr. Kennedys staff right now. Currently they are being bathed, dewormed, given the remainder of their vaccines, heart-worm testing is already done, spay/neutered and any other medical procedures needed will be addressed. These are such cute little ones who have been thru a great deal of trauma and they need some one to care what happens to them right now. Their medical needs are extensive and it is going to be very draining on our meager budget; however SRC simply could not leave them behind after everything they have already been thru already though we do not know enough about them yet to let them be released for adoption until they are completely evaluated and healed from all the necessary medical procedures.
If you are interested in any of these cute little boys or girls, just keep watch on this site and information will be posted as soon as it is available. Before long names and details for each number will be posted plus there will be after photos taken to show you the world of difference a good grooming bath, etc. can make! These little ones have so much possibility and they have already suffered so very much already so they really need YOU to make it all better, so please select one of these precious ones to love and to be loved by. Thank you for your patience. SRC diligently strives to assure that each dog we place is fully vetted and evaluated prior to its placement in an adoptive home. When these hoarded dogs are ready for adoption each one of them will be heart-worm tested, spayed or neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, and micro-chipped, plus their foster parents will give input as to their demeanor in their home so that her or his adoptive parent will have a better idea of the personality of their dog. There are both males and females in this group of dogs and all are very sweet, just very frightened and very much in need of love and patience. Please keep in mind that once adopted EVERY dog still needs an adjustment period in their new home, no matter how well adjusted he or she becomes in their foster home.
DONATIONS may be made toward their medical needs thru our website at the donate now option or you may mail your donation to our home office: 2643 Tumbleweed Drive, Lenoir, NC 28645. Tax letters will be provided for any donation.
