HERSHEY's Story...

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.


All is well with Mr. Hershey Bar. This little dog is a love to have around. He has started to get on the couch with all of my other dogs. He loves cars rides, goes on walks on my farm now without a leash, hangs out with my 2 giants and border collie. He and the collie, who is one and a half, play together all the time now. He is just a wonderful dog to have around. He does bark some but always has a reason for example cat cat cat cat. He cannot live with a cat. I have been trying to break him of the cat chasing, biting, habit with no success. He can't help it, it is just in his DNA This little boy could not be placed in a family that has a pet cat however he would fit into any other family beautifully!!


HERSHEY (SRC #1186) is an adult Mini Schnauzer male that weighs 19lbs. He is estimated to be between 7-9 years old by our vets, but no one really knows for sure. Hershey is a stunning and rare chocolate colored Schnauzer with a docked tail and cropped ears. He came to SRC when his owners dropped him off at a shelter because they didn't want to take care of him any longer. Hershey sat in the shelter for over a month, getting over looked and passed up for younger dogs and puppies. That is when SRC was contacted and we immediately stepped up to help.

Hershey is a spirited and energetic Schnauzer who you would think is around two years old. He loves to fetch a ball and he loves for you to throw his toys to him so he can bring them back to you. He gets along well with other dogs, both large and small, but he DOES NOT do well with cats.

Hershey is house trained and crate trained and he loves to ride in the car. He is a bit of a puller on the leash, but he is being worked with on that.

Hershey will make an excellent walking or hiking companion for someone because he is a very active little guy. He does know how to settle down and cuddle, but he would love to have an active owner who can at least get out and play with him once a day. Hershey would also love to have a fenced in yard in his new home.

Hershey is neutered microchipped, up to date on all of his shots, and heartworm negative. He has been started on monthly heartworm and flea preventative and he has been deemed very healthy by the vet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HERSHEY, a Lenoir Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Lenoir, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Lenoir.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lenoir already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lenoir breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lenoir paves the way for another one to be saved.
