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 ON FRANNIE(SRC#1211) FROM HER FOSTER MOM, HARRIETT, FOR JUNE 14, 2012:
Frannie went to see the Ophthalmologist last Friday as she had some cloudiness in both her eyes. The diagnosis was that she had corneal lipid degeneration caused by previous corneal ulcers in both her eyes. It basically means that she has a scar in each eye . She has no pain with this condition and sees just fine even though her vision is partially distorted. The Ophthalmologist has me putting a drop of solution in each eye once a day to see if there will be any improvement. If not, the drops will not need to be continued. Her food has changed to a lamb and rice since the Ophthalmologist suggested she stay away from poultry and poultry fats in her diet. He also suggested fresh vegetables or carrots & apples for her treats due to this condition. So far, Frannie has adapted to the change in foods just fine. She even likes banana now.
Frannie 's life at the beach with her foster siblings continues to be good. She knows exactly where her food bowl is and how to sit to get her slices of apple for her treat. She craves human attention & is my shadow following me from room to room. She has joined forces with Nick and Tulip Anne barking at the neighbor's cat and is walking much better on her leash. She still remains timid when meeting new people but she was that way with me for a day or two. I expect that she will still need a small adjustment period when she goes to her forever home.
She loves to kiss you and show how glad she is to be around you. She races through the backyard , but comes right back to you when called. She is happiness on 4 legs!
Miss Frannie has made it to her foster home and what a delight she is!!! This tiny little two year old girl weighs just 12lbs and she is going to make a lucky family very happy. Frannie is jet black in coloring with the sweetest eyes ever. She has perky ears that stand up a lot and she has the softest coat.
Frannie can be a little shy at first, but she quickly warms up to new people and sitiuations. Once she knows you she is full of kisses and all she wants to do is cuddle up next to you.
Frannie is crate trained and has not had any accidents in the house, so if kept on a schedule it is safe to say she is house trained. She rides very well in the car, she loves to explore the backyard, and she is working on her leash training. Frannie is a good dog to take on strolls as she has short legs and likes to walk at a nice and steady pace.
Frannie is a very laid back girl who gets along well with other dogs, but she would also do just fine as an only dog. Her favorite places to lounge are your lap, the couch, on her doggie pillow on the floor, or in her crate. She is no trouble at all. >p> If you are looking for a fun loving girl who is well acclimated to family liife and who is the definition of cute and sweet, well look no futher...here is your companion.
Frannie is also beginning to work on her basic commands so she will be an even better family pet!.
Frannie is spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on her shots, microchipped, and she is on monthly heartworm and flea preventative.
FRANNIE IS BEING FOSTERED IN CAROLINA BEACH, NC. YOU MUST BE WILLING TO DRIVE THERE IN ORDER TO ADOPT HER.
FRANNIE (SRC#1211) IS ALMOST COMPLETELY VETTED. BECAUSE OF THE ENVIRONMENT THAT SHE CAME OUT OF THE DR. FELT IT WAS BEST TO HAVE HER ON ANTIBIOTICS FOR A FEW DAYS PRIOR TO HER SPAY SURGERY, SO SHE WILL BE SPAYED THE FIRST OF THE WEEK. THEN SHE WILL BE READY TO GO TO HER LOVING FOSTER HOME FOR EVALUATION PRIOR TO ADOPTION. THIS ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL IS ALREADY SHOWING HER TRUE PERSONALITY AND IT IS LOVELY! SHE GIVES KISSES AND REALLY ENJOYS HER BATHS! CUDDLE TIME IS SUCH A THRILL FOR HER AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT SHE DEFINITELY WANTS TO CONTINUE ON A REGULAR BASIS. FRANNIE NEEDS A LOVING FAMILY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. NOT ONLY DOES SHE NEED IT, SHE REALLY DESERVES IT AFTER ALL THE PAIN AND SUFFERING SHE HAS ALREADY ENDURED. PLEASE OPEN YOUR HOME AND HEART TO THIS WONDERFUL LITTLE GIRL. SHE IS NOW HEART-WORM NEGATIVE, FECAL NEGATIVE, UP TO DATE ON ALL HER VACCINATIONS, INCLUDING A INTRA-NASAL BORDATELLA AND SHE HAS GOTTEN A DENTAL ALONG WITH BEING MICRO-CHIPPED ALREADY TOO. ALL THIS PLUS A LOVING AND LOYAL LITTLE GIRL IS MORE THAN ANYONE WOULD EXPECT TO FIND IN SUCH A LITTLE AND ADORABLE PACKAGE YET THIS TREASURE IS DEFINITELY AVAILABLE ALONG WITH HER MANY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. PLEASE GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY THAT THEY HAVE BEEN MISSING DUE TO THE HOARDER THAT ROBBED THEM OF IT -- THEY ARE DEFINITELY WORTH YOUR CONSIDERATION!
RESCUED DOGS CONFISCATED FROM HOARDER -- ON HOLD PENDING EVALUATION
This rescued dog FRANNIE (SRC #1211) 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 heartworms. Each of these dogs was found to be heartworm 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.
