International Rescue

We had a slow start with our international rescue efforts this year with only three dogs from Turkey rescued before the pandemic struck. However, in late August we were able to secure flights and flight volunteers to get an additional 29 dogs over from Turkey, China, and Kosovo. Our amazing international volunteers traveled over 6,400 miles in eight separate trips to Dulles and JFK airports to transport the dogs back to Raleigh, checked out by our vets, and into loving foster homes. Click here to learn more about our international rescue efforts and make your donation today.

Meet and Greet

Clair, Maggie, and Willie Nelson

With limited available dogs and government restrictions getting tighter with COVID cases increasing, our Meet and Greets will be held on a case by case basis through at least the end of the year. We will announce our plans on our Meet and Greet webpage a couple of days before the scheduled dates, which is the first and third Saturday of the month.
