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

"ABBY", SENIOR GWP
NO CATS, SMALL DOGS, or SMALL CHILDREN
Abby's history of neglect is long. She is 11 yrs old, but still full of life and very healthy. Abby can be a bit grumpy when scared or cornered. She gets over it quickly as long as she isn't pushed, then returns to her loveable sweet self. For this reason we think she would be best in an adult only home. She gets along with other dogs as long as they don't try to dominate her or annoy her relentlessly. She is not good with cats. She may be old, but we think she will still make a fantastic bird dog. She has high prey drive and her sister is still an excellent hunter. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
"SEVA", 1 1/2 YR OLD Spayed Female German Shepherd
Seva is a sweet energetic girl. She would do best with an active family that will give her a job. She can be a bit dominant with other dogs, so it would be necessary for the dogs to meet if you have another, so we can see if it is a good fit. She is spayed and current on all vaccines, but needs some training. If you feel Seva would be a good addition to your family, please contact us with questions or for an application.
Tonk is a very sweet girl. She loves people and gets along well with other dogs. She is not good with cats. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
Suka is an absolute love bug. She is calm and gentle and loves people. She gets along well with male dogs and some females. She has not been tested with cats. She is crate trained and will be ready to go to her new home as soon as she is spayed. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
Durcy is a sweet, but timid girl. She is calm and gentle and loves people, but can be slow to warm up, especially to men. She gets a bit worried at quick movements or loud voices, but is not at all aggressive. She gets along well with all dogs. She has not been tested with cats. She is crate trained and will be ready to go to her new home as soon as she is spayed. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
"ACE", 6 YR OLD N/MALE HUSKY
Ace's family was very sad to give him up, but certain personal reasons made it absolutely necessary. Ace is completely house broken, doesn't chew, and is excellent with children and other dogs. He is a typical Husky and will run off if not properly secured. He is NOT good with cats. He does pull on the leash, but we are working on that behavior. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
Zero was given up by a family that couldn't take him when they moved. He is sweet and crate trained. He is good with other small dogs and cats, but scared of big dogs and will growl at them. He will be neutered and brought current on vaccines before leaving. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
"CHI CHI", 3 YR OLD FEMALE CHIHUAHUA
Chi Chi was given up by the same family as Zero. Chi Chi is very small. She is sweet and crate trained. She is good with other small dogs and cats, but hasn't been around big dogs. She will be spayed and brought current on vaccines before leaving. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
Smore was given up by the same family as Zero and Chi Chi. Smore is tiny. She is sweet and crate trained. She is good with other small dogs and cats, but hasn't been around big dogs. She will be spayed and brought current on vaccines before leaving. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
