Annie was living like many hounds do down south, wandering the roads and looking for a scrap or two to fill her empty stomach. Unfortunately being a hound down south most likely means your purpose is to work or breed. Very few are actually considered pets. When Annie was picked up she was clearly emaciated, but full of milk due to puppies that were probably taken to be sold to suffer the same life as Annie had. Surprisingly this sweet but timid girl did not try to retreat when rescuers came to remove her head from the cookie jar that Annie had been scavenging for food. Unfortunately this girl’s past has understandably left her doubtful and a little leery of human kindness.
As of now Annie resides in a foster home with two other pups. She doesn’t mind them, but would be just as fine as a single pup. Annie was most likely never a house pet so she feels most in her element outdoors. Rather it’s sunning on the deck or chasing squirrels up trees Annie seems to come out of her shell when outside. Like any hound this girl can easily be won over by food, chicken in particularly. Treats of shredded chicken breast have helped her overcome some new found fears of living inside a house versus outside. Annie now joins her family for tv time on the couch, and wags her tail the only way she knows how. Needless to say Annie will need a family that is understanding, patient, and able to show her what it’s like to be a beloved pet. If you think you are this family email email@example.com
All too often in the rescue world pups just like Humphries spend months, even years on the adoption circuit due to no fault of their own. Maybe it’s because adopters are intimidated by their looks, or don’t find the breed suitable for their adoption needs. While we always advise adopters to research breeds prior to adoption, we also advise them to focus on qualities not physical appearance.
Humphries posses many phenomenal qualities that adopters often request, however due to her looks her profile will be passed over without a glance. If they were to read they’d find out that this girl is 55lbs of awesome! Humphries is house trained and crate trained, which are bonuses when adopting a pup. She not an anxious pup at all. She is always happy and willing to please, so if you’re up to it she’d be a great pup to learn a few new tricks. Humphries will just be one of those girls that walks into your home and makes it seem as though she has been there forever. She likes having a canine companion, is respectful of her feline friends, and loves following her foster kid around the house. This girl would be a super easy addition to just about any pack. Don’t pitty a pit, adopt one! If you’d like to adopt this pretty pitty email firstname.lastname@example.org
Not every pup is afforded the luxury of growing old in a loving home. Grandma was left to wander the roads of South Carolina like so many others hounds, but this gal is about 10 years old and living on the streets was taking a toll on her. She happily jumped into animal controls truck and made her way to the shelter. Although not ideal for an older lady Grandma knew she could count on two meals a day and a cot to lay on. Food and a place to nap is two main components of life if you’re a Beagle!
From time to time there is a pup that will just pull on your heartstrings a little more than the rest, and that was certainly Grandma. A pup of her age should be in a home living out her golden years being spoiled with comfy beds, plush toys, and lots of doggy biscuits. Grandma doesn’t require a lot of exercise but doesn’t mind a light walk. She is fine to hang out around her canine friends, feline roomies and even the bunnies. She is a low key girl looking for a place to retire from her days of street living. Grandma has been spayed and even had a dental to so she can show off that pretty smile. If you think you have a vacant Beagle sized space in your home please email Jonesm4318@gmail.com today!
Calling all terrier lovers out there! If you love scruffy you’ll love Penny and April. These two lovely ladies were dropped off at the shelter when their former owners found out how much work puppies can be. Needless to say we could resist these beauties and once you meet them we know you’ll feel the same!
Penny and April are 4 month old wired hair terrier mixes that will probably be about 30lbs full grown. However don’t let side fool you, like most terriers these girls are “big dogs” and a small dog body. The girls are very outgoing and adaptable so they will not have to be adopted out together. They love helping with yard work rather it be running off with tools, or taking a ride in the shell barrow. Both girls are extremely smart, and moderately active. They will need a home that can provide them with structure and stimulation. Since Penny and April are still young it is essential they learn their doggy manners so that they can be good doggy citizens in adulthood. If you are looking for loads of fun in a pint sized package Penny or April just may be the pup for you! Email Jonesm4318@gmail.com today for an application.

When you see such a sad desperate face all you want to do is hug and hold him and reassure this pup that everything will be okay, but will he? That's the question. How many adorable puppies do we scroll by on our newsfeeds daily thinking "oh someone else will surely help".
Well the reality is that most people just keep scrolling too. Summer is a busy time, and everyone is caught up with vacations, parties, and extracurricular activities. Unfortunately Summer is also peek breeding season which means it tends to have a drastic increase in homeless pups. Puppies just like Caster pictured above are left in shelters to only succumb to disease and illness.
Caster is just one of many vulnerable puppies counting on a family to open up their hearts and home, so that he can live to see another day and eventually become a forever pup. All you will need to supply is home for 2-3 weeks and some TLC. We will supply the rest.
Fostering is a great summer experience for the kids, and many times can be put towards community service hours. It is also a great way to experience different breeds, ages, sizes and personalities of pups before making that lifetime commitment. If you are interested in fostering please email:

Missy is becoming the typical rescue cliche’. After giving birth and raising her pups, Missy watched as each and every one of them joined their forever families. Yet here she still is, a momma that has been overlooked time and time again. Missy has been in foster care for over 200 days without a single application. We can’t understand why as she would make the ideal companion for a family that is a bit more low key. Missy is a Heinz 57 kind of pup which often gets overlooked due to lack of knowledge on her breed. She is also 6 years old and about 60lbs, which tends to scare off adopters too. Missy walks pretty well on the leash, loves to be outside, but when she’s inside she is sure to find a spot on the couch. It’s not fair for any pup, but especially one that has been through so much to still be waiting on a home sweet home. Because of this we are waiving Missy’s adoption fee, as she has waited long enough to find her happily ever after. If intretested in making Missy a forever pet please contact Jonesm4318@gmail.com today. All adopters must go through our application process.
Little Luke is finally ready to start searching for his home sweet home. This boy was born and raised in New York after his mom was rescued from a high kill shelter in North Carolina. His wrinkly face and lovable puppy eyes can’t help but to draw you in. Although he may look like he will be a big boy, we don’t estimate Luke getting much bigger than 30lbs. Like any puppy this boy will need a family that can provide him with structure, guidance and plenty of socializing throughout his puppyhood. Luke would love to be the pup you snuggle up to every night, and the one to lick your face every morning! If you think Luke is your boy email Jonesm4318@gmail.com today.
Baby Bootsy only about 3 months old. This pretty girl has been roaming the streets of South Carolina for most of her short life, and ever since getting a taste of the good life she decided she would like nothing more than to settle down with a forever family. Bootsy is as sweet as her chocolate colored coat. This pup gets along wonderfully with children, feline friends, and of course makes an exceptional canine companion. She is excelling in her house and crate training, however she will need a family that can continue working with her on these puppy skills. Bootsy will undoubtedly make an outstanding family pup, so a family that could include her in their social activities would be ideal. If you think you could use a Bootsy in your life email firstname.lastname@example.org today.
