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 dog’s 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 (1-910-401-1317). 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.
BENJI (SRC#1512) is a three year old male Toy Poodle who came to SRC from a Good Samaritan that rescued him from a not so good situation. Benji currently weighs 7lbs and should be about 9 at an ideal weight. He is cream/white in coloring with a docked tail and natural ears.
Benji loves other dogs. He does not have an alpha personality and tends to just go with the flow when he joins an established "pack". Due to the abuse that he has been subjected to Benji tends to be shy when he first meets people and he must get to know them before he is comfortable with them, still he is craving human contact enough that he does follow his humans to maintain that contact. He loves being around other dogs and will definitely spend his time with his foster siblings whenever he is given that option. He goes everywhere they go and is learning from them by going everywhere they go. Benji has already started coming up to people that he trusts and he will give them a quick lick on the hand and run off without expecting further interaction. Time and patience will help this action to flourish! He already really enjoys spending time on the sofa watching the interaction among all the others -- he takes in everything and is understanding that this foster home is far better than the horror he was removed from . Benji rests well and will sleeps peacefully at night in a crate if he is asked to do that so he is definitely crate trained. He had a respiratory infection which was treated with antibiotics and this is much better. His cough is almost non-existent at this point. He is housebroken and only had a couple of accidents in the house when he was getting settled in. Benji will need additional help with his leash training and his current foster parent is working on that now. As time goes by, Benji will improve his socialization skills as he learns that not every human is put here on Earth just to abuse and hurt him!
It is important that Benji be placed in an adoptive home that already has another friendly dog in their home that he may relate to.
Benji is a really a sweet little guy who is now learning that he is able to trust those people around him, and that is going to help him improve in leaps and bounds however he must be treated with respect and patience for this trust to continue to grow and thrive. With the proper placement Benji will be a wonderful family companion! Do not ask to adopt him if you do not have another dog for him to be with already in your home.
BENJI IS BEING FOSTERED IN RALEIGH, NC YOU MUST BE WILLING TO DRIVE THERE IN ORDER TO ADOPT HIM.
Benji is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart-worm negative, micro-chipped, de-wormed, and on monthly heart-worm and flea preventative.
Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $355
This dog who was just rescued by volunteers of SRC is named BENJI and it identification number is: (SRC #1512). All canines rescued by our non-profit organization are fully vetted (receive fecals, vaccinations, heart-worm testing, spay/neuter if not already done, and have any necessary medical needs addressed that our trusted vets feel are necessary to their future well being. Once this dog has been examined by an SRC vet and these medical needs have been met, the rescued canine will be sent to a loving SRC foster parent for an evaluation period. This evaluation is normally for a minimum of 2 weeks so that our foster parent may get a good indication of the demeanor of the dog in their care. This will be very helpful information to be given the adoptive parent once they have completed SRC's approval process.
Please send your email request for an Adoption Application to email address:
We want to thank you for your interest in our dogs. We ask that you please read the information in this bio very carefully before contacting the rescue as many of your questions will be answered above and this will allow us to concentrate on saving these precious lives when time is often of great importance to assure that they do not perish.
More information about Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas Inc
Rescue Group Info...
Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization -- all of our adoption donations go back into helping care for other rescues. We are a group of volunteers within North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Eastern Tennessee, and Northern Georgia whose sole purpose is to rescue and secure loving, permanent homes for displaced Miniature, Standard and Giant Schnauzers.
SRC fosters each one of our rescues in a loving family environment and spends many personal hours working with them to ensure that they are ready (both physically and emotionally) to move into his or her new forever home when adopted. Every rescue spends a minimum of two weeks in their foster home before being released for adoption. This allows the foster parent to give the new family a very good idea about the demeanor of their newly adopted dog, and to help them understand what to expect when taking their new family companion home. Each SRC dog is vetted by an SRC approved vet. The dog has been given a thorough examination, been de-wormed, been given all necessary vaccinations, been spay/neutered, micro-chipped and any other medical procedures deemed necessary by our vet have been done ( such as dentals, ear cleaning, nail trim, etc.) The micro-chip is done for their future safety prior to being adopted from our custody and SRC remains secondary after the adoptive parents register their micro-chip so that if they should become lost or stolen and the adoptive parents are not available, SRC would be able to claim the dog and hold them until we could contact the adoptive parents. SRC is committed to the full lifetime happiness and welfare of each rescue that comes into our custody whether it is a Mini, Standard, Giant, or "Honorary" Schnauzer. As of July, 2012, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. has been in operation for has been a reputable and successful rescue organization for nine (9) years now and our organization has placed well over 1500 Schnauzers and "honorary" Schnauzers plus made a large number of referrals that resulted in saving the lives of many worthy canines. In fact, our organization has even placed about 14 felines with courtesy listings and even one parrot, so our worthy mission is alive and well. We are most grateful to all those generous and dedicated volunteers that have put in so many long hours and have asked nothing in return except that these animals live and be happy! Bless them all.

Please go to SRC's main website and you will notice close to the bottom of the SRC Home Page a gold “donate” button just under “Please Help A Homeless Schnauzer”. Please click on that button and follow the secure link to make a credit card or checking account donation of your choice. Tax letters are available upon request. All these tax deductible donations are used to help incoming rescues with their medical needs. For your convenience here is the link to our website: http://www.schnauzerrescueofthecarolinas.org/
SRC requires an application approval process which includes a vet and/or personal reference check and an informal home visit done after your application is submitted to our Placement Team. Our approval process is conducted professionally and as quickly as possible.
SRC works diligently to match the right dogs with the appropriate forever homes -- there is a Volunteer Intake Coordinator that specifically works with this assignment to assure that our adoptions are successful and happy ones. All SRC members are volunteers and are unpaid for their services so that financial donations may go to the medical needs of our rescued dogs.
Applicant's specific questions may be answered as soon as the approval process is concluded. Contact is arranged with the rescue dog's foster parents after approval is received so that approved applicants may have any questions answered about the dog of their choice.
SRC also provides guidance for new adoptive parents upon request and is thoroughly committed to their worthy mission. Each dog in our care receives a thorough vet exam, de-worming, necessary vaccines, spay/neuter, micro-chip, and any medical needs addressed as necessary by our vet prior to being placed in loving SRC foster care for evaluation of a minimum of two weeks. The two week requirement assures that each foster family will be able to give the adoptive family a better idea of the demeanor of their new family companion when he or she is adopted.
A tax deductible donation according to the age of the canine adopted will be requested shortly before the time of the adoption of your selected rescue. This is NOT the purchase of a pet, this is a donation for the medical needs of future incoming rescues and is therefore helping needy canines that might otherwise perish without your assistance..
