59 Dogs Adopted

Thank you for stopping by to see the dogs ready for adoption. There are typically between 35 and 45 dogs in our program at any given time – some will stay with us longer than others as they overcome their medical or behavioral challenges. The costs to run our rescue are well over $200,000 per year. Click here to learn how you can support NRGRR rescue, rehab, and adopt these dogs in need. Visit our Blarney's Fund page to read about some of our dogs who came into our program with serious medical issues and learn how we helped them recover.

Note: You must be a resident of North Carolina to adopt one of our dogs. If you live more than three hours from the Raleigh-Durham area, adopting from us may be challenging.

Reminder for approved applicants: To apply for one or more available dogs, contact your applications advisor. Don't know who your advisor is? Email

Meet and Greets

Due to the public health emergency, we have cancelled our meet and greets until further notice. Approved applicants should monitor these pages and contact their application advisor if they are interested in a particular dog. We have guidelines in place to allow applicants to meet and/or adopted a dog from us, as long as both our volunteers and the applicant feel comfortable with the arrangements.

Thank you for your patience.

Referral Dogs (not in our program)

We provide listings for referral dogs and other North Carolina dog rescue organizations 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 rescues, and we assume no responsibility for the condition or behavior of the dogs.

Cause N Dog Rescue - Their Story

Located in Snow Hill, NC, Cause N Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization. We are not paid to save the dogs we do, we choose to save them. Despite what people believe we are not funded by any government or entity to keep this rescue running. We are supported strictly by donations and volunteers. In even simpler terms, we are a group of people who spend our time and money to save dogs. More often than not these animals are brought to us after being neglected and mistreated. All other times they have been dumped, left behind, and completely forgotten about by the same people who were supposed to love them forever. Developed through our own funds and hard work, we have created this non-profit organization to bring awareness to a cause close to our hearts. Every week dogs are suffering and in need of rescuing right here in our county. Those that are to be euthanized at the county shelter due to lack of space for more dogs, we save them too. As long as we can and have the space and resources to save them we do because our Non-Profit Rescue is a “no kill” facility. Our dogs learn how to live indoors as a family dog, get leash trained, temperament tested and most importantly, taught to love. All are brought to the vet, tested and treated for heartworms and parasites, fully vaccinated protecting them from parvo and rabies, given preventions for heartworms, fleas and ticks, as well as spayed and neutered.
