I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Katja is good with kids, cats and other dogs. She's a sweet girl with a lot of love to give and is guaranteed to make you laugh. She has had puppies in the past but those days are now behind her. She would be a good addition to almost any family.
We are located in Charleston SC
If you are interested in adopting please fill out an adoption application on our website at carolinacoonhoundrescue.com. An application is the first step to adoption. Our adoption fee is $250. This fee covers the vet care we provide for each dog including spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, heartworm and intestinal parasite tests, monthly flea and heartworm prevention, and treatment for any injury or illness that we are aware of. If the dog is heartworm positive we have taken x-rays of the dog's chest and are providing treatment as recommended by our veterinarians. Our most common form of heartworm treatment is the "slow kill" method. In our experience this treatment is much safer for the dogs and allows them to have a more normal life, however there are risks with both methods. If the dog you are interested in is heartworm positive, these methods can be discussed with our vets.
There is also a contract that must be signed and you may request a copy to look over and ask questions about any clauses should you choose. We do allow a trial period in your home for local adopters. We call these trials "foster to adopt" periods. This is a one week trial to make sure that the dog fits in with your lifestyle and to ensure you are adopting the right pet. We require a check made out to the rescue in advance to taking the dog home with you. If you decide not to adopt we will return the check to you, if you adopt we will then deposit the check.
Out of state adopters are responsible for any and all transport costs and arrangements. We use 4 Paws Transport for dogs going to new homes up the east coast. Their cost is $120. This fee must be paid to them in addition to our adoption fees. We do not currently have a transport company that moves to the mid-west or west but we would be happy to help with arrangements if needed. All adoption fees must be paid before the dog leaves Charleston SC.
More information about Carolina Coonhound Rescue
Rescue Group Info...
Carolina Coonhound Rescue was started in June of 2010. It was started to help hounds in South and North Carolina get a second chance at a family life. Many hounds in our area are used for hunting purposes only and are far to easily thrown away by hunters who no longer need them...that's where we come in. We take hounds from shelters who are no longer wanted, get them healthy, and find new homes for them.
We are an all volunteer based rescue. We don't have a shelter facility and rely on foster homes to save these dogs and to give them a place to stay until they can be placed into forever homes. We work hard to save as many hounds as we can from shelters. We are the only Coonhound Specific rescue in South Carolina.

We allow both in state and out of state adoptions.
Our adoption fee is $250. Out of state adopters are responsible for any transport costs.
All of our dogs have been spayed/neutered, given age appropriate vaccinations, microchiped, as well as screened and started on any treatments they may need. They are also started on flea and heartworm prevention. The adoptive owners will be responsible for continued medications that the dog may need as well as any additional vaccinations, both yearly and booster, for the adopted dog.
The first step to adoption is an application which can be filled out at http://carolinacoonhoundrescue.com/Adoption_Application.php.
This application must be filled out prior to setting up any meetings or overnight visits. Once the decision is made to adopt we will need payment of the adoption fee and a signed contract. If the dog is adopted out of state, payment of the adoption fee is due once transport is arranged but before the dog leaves Charleston SC.
