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 FOR HOLLY AS OF JULY 3, 2012:
Hollie is living life large!! She loves playing with her foster sister "Cassie". They rumble and tumble all day in the yard. She loves getting in her pool to cool down and makes a game of jumping in and out. She walks well on her leash and sits on command. She lines up with the other dogs and sits patiently waiting her turn at the treats. I think she is a Yorkillon:which is a cross (designer breed) between a Papillon and Yorkshire Terrier. She has all the characteristics of that cross. She loves to play (with dogs, toys, socks, etc.), is full of energy, extremely smart, very easy to train, and is low to no shedding. She is still timid with strangers but is doing better. She weighs about 16 lbs now and doesn't gulp her food. She has had her nails trimmed, had several baths, and gone to the groomer for a hair trim (spa day). She has also gone to the vet with foster brother Brody just to mingle with the other people and dogs. She rides well in the car and loves to go. I think she would do better with another dog in her forever home. If we didn't already have four rescues this amazing girl would stay in Swansboro with us! She has so much love to give and whoever adopts this wonderful girl is going to be very lucky.
UPDATE FOR HOLLY AS OF MAY 31, 2012:
I picked up Hollie Tuesday morning and so far she is doing very well. She is very energetic, loving, and sweet. She weighs about 14 lbs and loves to play with toys. She does love the security of her crate but does not like to have the door closed. She whines a little if she is closed in. She gets along great with her four foster brothers and sisters. So far no accidents in the house. She is doing well on her leash training and working now on simple commands. She tries very hard to please. She is reddish brown and black and has ears that stand straight up; her tail curls over her back and she has beautiful almond colored eyes. She loves to ride in the car. She likes to sit on the couch and cuddle and give kisses. She will even lay together with the other dogs too. She likes to use her front paws to get your attention if you are not looking at her. She is getting less timid every day and is getting used to her routines. She also likes to explore the fenced in portion of our yard and loves being outside
UPDATE FOR HOLLY AS OF 05/30/2012: Hollie has made it to her foster home and is ready to live the life of a pampered pooch. She deserves only the best in life, as the first two years she has spent being the victim of a hoarder. Don't let her past deter you from adopting this amazing girl. At two years old and just 14lbs, she is the perfect size for anyone. Hollie is a Schnauzer/Terrier Mix with the most unique and beautiful coloring. She is actually the talk of the town everywhere she goes because her color pattern is so striking. Hollie is wary of people in the beginning but she has not been the least bit of aggressive with anyone. She will warm up to you within hours and once she trusts you, watch out...she loves to give kisses! Holly likes the security of a crate, as it is her safe haven and she will often nap in there. Her new family will need to make sure she has a crate to call her own, as she is definitely crate trained. Holly has not had any accidents in the house so this smart girl is house trained as well. (Keep in mind that these dogs will need to be kept on a schedule to maintain their house training due to their background). Holly enjoys playing with other dogs and she likes playing with toys. She rides well in the car and loves getting her coat brushed. It makes her feel so pretty. Holly is working on her leash training but at this point she is a little confused so a fenced yard for now will be best for her. Holly loves the yard and loves running and playing outside. It is so amazing to watch her explore the world like she has never been able to before. Hollie will make a wonderful addition to any family. Hollie is spayed, up to date on her shots, micro-chipped, heart-worm negative, and on monthly heart-worm and flea preventative.
HOLLY IS BEING FOSTERED IN SWANBORO, NC. YOU MUST BE WILLING TO DRIVE THERE IN ORDER TO ADOPT HER.
HOLLIE (SRC#1213) IS NOW SCHEDULED TO BE SPAYED THE FIRST OF THE WEEK. SHE HAS ALREADY BEEN TESTED FOR HEARTWORMS (NEGATIVE) AND RECEIVED ALL HER VACCINATIONS INCLUDING THE INTRA-NASAL BORDATELLA, PLUS SHE IS FECAL NEGATIVE AND HAS BEEN EXAMINED FOR OTHER ISSUES. DUE TO THE ENVIRONMENT THAT SHE WAS IN IT WAS DETERMINED THAT SHE NEEDED TO BE ON ANTIBIOTICS FOR A FEW DAYS PRIOR TO BEING SPAYED FOR HER HEALTH AND SHE WILL BE FINE. THIS WAS A PRE-CAUTION TO ASSURE THAT SHE REMAINS HEALTHY. SRC INTENDS TO ASSURE THAT SHE REMAINS THAT WAY. SHOULD SHE REQUIRE A DENTAL PROCEDURE THAT WILL BE DONE ALSO. SHE WILL HAVE ANY ISSUES ADDRESSED AND WILL ALSO BE MICRO-CHIPPED. ONCE THAT IS DONE SHE WILL BE SENT TO A FOSTER HOME TO ASSURE THAT SHE IS READY FOR HER ADOPTIVE HOME.
RESCUED DOGS CONFISCATED FROM HOARDER -- NO LONGER ON HOLD PENDING EVALUATION
This rescued dog HOLLIE (SRC #1213) 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.
Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $350.00
