Areas Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas Inc Serves

SRC serves the areas of North and South Carolina, all of Virginia, and Eastern Tennessee for the adoption of Mini Schnauzers, Standard Schnauzers and Giant Schnauzers. SRC may extend this area on a case by case decision when dealing with the adoption of Giant Schnauzers since these rescue organizations are so limited. SRC does not ship any of its dogs, so all adopters must be prepared to come to our area to pick their adopted canine up.

About Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas Inc

Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. (SRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization -- all of our adoption donations go toward helping care for other rescued Schnauzers and Honorary Schnauzers in need of medical care. We are a group of volunteers whose area of operation is within the areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Eastern Tennessee. We also adopt only to people located in those specific areas. SRC does not adopt outside of those specific areas so please do not request a waiver.. This non-profit organization's sole purpose is to prevent cruelty of animals specifically canines by rescuing them and securing loving, permanent homes for displaced Miniature, Standard and Giant Schnauzers plus Honorary Schnauzers when room allows. SRC also works to help educate the public about their breed traits, health and nutritional needs to assure their future health and happiness. We also emphasize the importance of spay/neuter and micro-chipping to protect the health and security of your beloved canines. SRC works diligently to educate the public as to the importance of good dental care in extending the life expectancy of their dog's healthy lifespan.

SRC fosters each one of our rescued canines 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 rescued canine spends a minimum of two weeks in their foster home before being released for adoption. This evaluation allows the foster parent to give the new family a very good idea about the demeanor of their newly adopted dog, and better prepares them to understand what to expect when taking their new family companion home. Each SRC dog is vetted by an SRC approved vet. Each dog is given a thorough examination, de-wormed, given all necessary vaccinations, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and provided any other medical procedures deemed necessary by our vet ( 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 have the dog's micro-chip registered in their in their name by SRC. In this way SRC is able to help should the canine 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 rescued canine that comes into our safe haven whether it is a Mini, Standard, Giant, or "Honorary" Schnauzer. As of June, 2018, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, Inc. will have been in operation as reputable and successful rescue organization for fifteen (15) years. our Our nonprofit organization has placed well over 4600 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 who have put in so many long hours and have asked nothing in return except that these animals live well,be happy and flourish! Bless them all.

Should you want to join our SRC family and help to save needy rescued canines, we are always looking for more volunteers. Also please keep in mind that our foster parents are given the first option to adopt their fostered canines before they are offered to other applicants. Please email the SRC Core Team for a volunteer application at one of these email addresses: OR

and one will be sent to you right away. These may now be downloaded directly from our website for your convenience.

Come Meet Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas Inc's Pets

SRC requires a completed adoption application as part of our approval process which also includes a vet and an informal home visit done after your application is submitted to our Placement Team for their review. 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 will 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. Everything that is known about each dog is written into their bio and these bios are updated frequently.

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..
