ALL DOGS ON THIS PAGE ARE ARE READY FOR ADOPTION WITH A MODERATE ADOPTION FEE TO COVER EXPENSES (average of $350, sometimes higher, sometimes lower). Contact Heidi for more information. We sometimes have more that aren't listed here, so if you are looking for something specific let us know.
Some people see these adoption fees as high, when actually it is a deal. These dogs come to you fully vetted. The cost of adopting a rescue is far less than buying a puppy and then raising it to one year old. Keep in mind that the majority of these dogs are already housebroken or, at the very least, crate trained.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Rescuing dogs is something we love to do, but we can't continue without help. We are in need of donations of time, money and/or supplies. Here are a few ways you can help:
1. Donate either money or supplies (ie...dog food, blankets, cleaning supplies, etc...)
2. Donate your time. We need people to help care for, socialize, groom, and train these dogs.
3. Foster a dog. These dogs need lots of TLC and one on one time with people. Contact us for a foster application if you are interested.
4. Adopt a dog! They are in need of loving forever homes. If you can open your heart to a rescue, they will give back 2 fold.
For more info on how you can help, call us at 704-843-0944 or email us.
I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY. Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today. -AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Won't you let one of these animals rescue you?
9 yr old spayed female GWP
Cotton is a darling girl who was given up because her owner no longer wanted to pay for her to go to doggie day care. She is very sad here in the kennel and we would like to get her in a home as soon as possible. Cotton is a sweet girl, who loves other dogs and people, but does seem a bit unsure of small children. If you feel like you can provide a permanent loving home for Cotton, please contact us for an application.
"BENTLEY", Purebred 3 yr old neutered male Yorkie
"BENTLEY" is a 3 yr old, neutered male Yorkie who has been passed through 3 homes already in his short life. He needs someone committed to training and loving him forever. He is very sweet, but high energy. He loves others dogs, needs room to run, and someone who will work his mind. He is smart and willing to please if you take the roll of pack leader.

"WINSTON", 5 yr old neutered male GWP
"Winston" was purchased by his family as a pup and has lived with them for all of his life. When Winston was brought into his family it was just too adults and life was good. Unfortunately, Winston has not done well since the children came on the scene a couple years ago. He is very nervous of the children and recently started nipping behavior (not breaking skin). While this behavior is fixable, his owners felt it best to place him in a home without children for Winston's sake. Winston will need an owner willing to work on obedience to help his confidence. He is very well mannered and completely house broken, but needs a bit more training on greeting strangers in the house. We are working on this, but want to make sure his new owner is aware that they will have to continue the training. If you feel Winston would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.
1 1/2 Yr old N/Male Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
"PUCK" is a big love bug with his people, but has a bite history with other people. He has arrived here for training and we feel he is rehabilitated and ready for a new home. But, he will have to have very knowledgeable owners that know how to be in charge. He needs structure and daily training. Puck is an amazing dog, but does take a little time to warm up to strangers and can not go to a home with small children, due to his previous history. If you feel this handsome guy could fit into your household and you have the time and dedication that he needs, please contact us for an application.
"YODA", 1 yr Old Neutered Male CHIWEENIE (chihuahua/dachshund)
"ROCCO", 9 yr old neutered male German Wirehaired Pointer
"ROCCO" was rescued by a couple who did a lot for him, but ultimately couldn't keep him forever. He is a very nice dog that just needs a firm owner. Rocco has excellent manners and is housebroken. He just isn't fond of strange men and goes into guard dog mode when he meets one. He will receive some training before he leaves us, but will need an owner that understands and is willing to follow through. If you feel Rocco would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.
"Yoda" is as sweet as pie and a very playful guy. He loves everyone and just wants to play all the time. Yoda is high energy, so needs a home with a secure fence to run in. He loves other dogs and would love to have a playmate. Yoda is young, so his new owner needs to be willing to do some obedience training with him and have time to spend with him. Please contact us for more info.
