Our Dogs

There are typically between 25 and 35 dogs in our program at any given time – some will stay with us longer than others as they overcome their medical or behavioral challenges.  Click here to read about some of our dogs who came into our program with serious medical issues and learn how we helped them recover.

The costs to run our rescue are well over $200,000 per year.  If you would consider sponsoring a dog, click here, or click on the "Sponsor Me" button on the dog's page.  If you are interested in meeting some of our available dogs, come to the next adoption event.

Referral Dogs (not in our program)

We provide listings for referral dogs as a service to the community, but we do not screen dogs to determine their suitability for adoption.  We make no representations regarding the accuracy of the information provided by the owners/fosters and we assume no responsibility for the condition or behavior of the dogs.

Zoey Referral Three
Zoey is a sweet girl.  She's a short, stout little girl at about 55 pounds, with a medium amount of energy.  Her foster Mom affectionately calls her Tootsie Roll.  She is estimated to be about five years old, and had a rough start at life.  Zoey was found as a puppy in Raleigh and had been kept in an outdoor pen most of her life up until her foster parents brought her home.  Understandably, the world initially was very scary for her but she blossomed quickly into a happy, goofy, eager to please lady.  She absolutely loves the grass between her paws and all the other things she missed out on early in life. As soon as you pet her, she stops and melts, happily soaking up the love she didn't get for so long.  She is crate trained and has no issue going in. 

She will go in her crate and sit randomly because she knows she'll get a little treat.  She's a fast learner.  She walks well on a leash and loves her walks and playing fetch in the backyard.  She is good with other dogs, but should go to a cat free home, as she sees them as a live stuffed animal (not aggressive, just wants to play with them...in her mouth).  She is good and gentle with children, but because she sometimes gets excited, older children would be best. Zoey is a sweet girl who deserves a happy ending and a loving family to call her own.  If interested, please contact Katie B. at katendy@gmail.com
