My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Meet Nutmeg! This special lady was rescued from a hoarding situation along with her TWELVE puppies. She came to us having no idea how good life can really be and is learning every day. She is a work-in-progress (aren’t we all?), but has already grown so much with love, patience, and consistency. â€¨â€¨Nutmeg takes a while to adjust to new situations, but under her fear is a pretty amazing dog. Once she has settled in, she likes to cuddle on the bed, loves to run around in the yard with her foster dog brother, and enjoys her daily cream cheese (and Prozac) treat.
In her foster home, she's interactive and stays close to foster mom. She enjoys chewing a toy and rolling around on her back in the grass. She wags her tail in a helicopter shape, dances when she's excited, and loves to say hi to other dogs walking past the yard.   â€¨â€¨Adopting Nutmeg will likely take some time for adjustment. Here's some things you should know - â€¨â€¨She's going to bark at you and run from you the first time she meets you. She doesn't auto-trust people and you can't expect to be fast friends. â€¨â€¨She's leash reactive and cannot be walked (yet). She doesn't bolt and is doing well in her foster family’s fenced in yard.
She really appreciates having a doggy role model. Having one or two other dogs in the house, preferably a little older and calmer, to show her the ropes will help a lot.

Although Nutmeg is still struggling with the trauma from her past, she is a truly wonderful dog. When introduced to her foster cat siblings, she was so respectful that she never got so much as a warning hiss. She is doing her very best every day, and with love and kindness she will continue to grow into a wonderful friend.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

♥ The first step is to fill out our adoption application on our website at under Adoption Information.

♥ Once we receive your application, the second step will be for our volunteers to check your vet reference and talk with your personal references.

♥ The third step, if your application is approved, is for our volunteers to contact you about scheduling a home check. This is not to see what kind of house you live in or how clean or dirty it is. It is simply to see if the yard size, fencing, etc is compatible with your dog of interest. It also allows other animals in your household as well as children to meet your potential new dog to see if everyone will get along and to make sure this is truly a "pawfect" match!

♥ After all three of these steps are completed, the final step is to sign the adoption contract and make the adoption donation fee of $300.00. This may seem high, but it is actually a bargain! Your new pet will be up to date on the necessary vaccinations required by the age of the dog at time of adoption, spayed or neutered, on heartworm preventative and flea and tick meds, micro-chipped, groomed, and well on his or her way with basic obedience and house training. All of our dogs will be adopted out with a collar and leash, and a PMR tag.

♥ NOTE - If you have "spam protection" turned on for your email account, please set a white filter to allow emails from to pass. We will NOT respond to spam protection response emails.

More about this rescue

We are an all volunteer rescue organization devoted to saving dogs from shelters, puppy mills, abusive situations and abondonment in North Carolina. Our members foster, transport and help the rescue efforts with their individual skills, experience, knowledge and expertise, and most importantly, their love of dogs.

At Pawfect Match Rescue we believe that ALL dogs deserve a second chance regardless of their breed or age.

We take a different approach to rescue. We don’t try to save the masses; we just save ONE at a time and make them the best dog they can be by the time they find their forever homes.

By that we mean that we take them into our homes where they live amongst us and our pets and are treated as one of the family, not as a foster dog. We accomplish this by limiting our fosters to one or two per household.

Besides the basics of crate training and house training, we teach them basic obedience, we groom them, feed them a high quality dog food, and last but not least, we shower them with LOVE and attention that hopefully teaches them to trust again and realize that life really IS good..

We’ll never be able to save them all, no matter how many we try to pull and foster. So we believe that the one at a time approach with the extra TLC allows us to really KNOW the dogs and be able to match them more precisely with their new families.

This ends up being a win- win situation for all involved.

Pawfect Match is all volunteer and relys soley on adoption donation fees and public support. Most times our adoption donations do not cover our medical expenses.
