Stella 1

Vienna got adopted!!!

We are so grateful to the Haseltine family who opened their home and hearts to this very sweet girl.....even after she had some of their couch for a snack 🙄


Special thanks to Eline and Chris for helping this very scared girl on her journey. Because of all they did to help her and her sister, Stelly (who is currently on trial), Vienna found her forever home.

Shelly & Vienna first day at foster home

Stelly with her sister Vienna relaxing in their foster home after being found as strays in Bladen County.

These precious sisters were brought to Animal Control and were scared to death in the shelter. They were shaking and curled up in a corner, too scared to come to the front of the kennel.

They did so well in their foster home, learning to trust and feel safe. And now... they both got adopted and found their forever homes!!! We are sooo happy for you all!!!


Look at sweet Cassidy in her new forever home!!! Punked on by her sisters in the shelter, she's now enjoying life living like a queen!!! We couldn't be happier for her!!!

Special thanks to Sandy and her family for helping her be her very best self, and to Marie and Scott for opening their hearts and home to this little girl.

Only the best from now on sweet Cassidy!!!


Look who got his forever home ON INDEPENDENCE DAY!!! Yes, it's Chance. He's our young Black Mouth Cur who was positive for heartworms! We were soooo surprised based on how young he was. Not only that, but he had a thrombus in his pulmonary vasculature! Geesh!!! Poor guy.

Thank you to Crystal Lee who took him under her wings to help him get started on his treatments. THEN, his Angel, David, met him and that's all she wrote. They fell in love with each other immediately! He took Chance through his VERY hard journey of HW treatments. Through it all, David was there by his side. These two are definitely BFFFS, no question. Happy lives to both of you.

We are so glad you found each other!!! ❤️

Cindy Lu, now Winnie

HHappy tails for another one of our puppies that was threatened to be thrown in the river if someone didn't come get them......Yes, it's Cindy Lu, now Winnie! This young lady hit it big with her family and look at that big smile!!!!

Special thanks to Kathleen for fostering her and helping her become her best self. And we couldn't be more grateful to the Brubaker family for opening their hearts and home to this sweet little girl!!!

Thank you Silvia Kim with A Shelter Friend for taking the 6 puppies initially until we could find fosters! ❤️

Look who got his forever home!!! It's Porter (formally Peter), and he couldn't be happier. He started life by being threatened to be thrown in the river by his owner. One of 6 puppies rescued. Talk about going from rags to riches! Thank you to everyone who helped this little guy along the way ❤️. Special thanks to Alisha and Peter for opening your hearts and home and to his new fursibling Zoe for letting Porter be part of her pack! ❤️❤️ 

Acasia Adopted

Acacia Mae is adopted!!!

Scheduled to be euthanized for space, Kaitlyn & Dylan rose to the occasion and helped Miss Acacia see that she is loved. Then, Patrick and Tiffany saw her and couldn't resist adding her to their pack!!! She is soooo happy and so loved.

Thank you Banjo & Kona for being willing to accept her into the pack.

Happy tails to everyone!

Jack (now Murphy) has been adopted by his fosters!!!! He is soooo happy & relaxed!

Thank you Gerard and Katherine for loving Murphy and to Rebecca for grooming him to get rid of all the mats he had so he could heal!!! And especially thanks to his new family for loving him so much!!!

Ryder is no longer lonely! He got adopted!!! — with loving parents and plenty of siblings! When we met Ryder, this sweet beagle mix was terrified of the world. He was found as a stray and was shaking in the shelter. Ryder was HW+ and likely on his own his first six years, never having been in a house before we rescued him. He went to his foster home and has never left!

We wish all of you the best life!!!

We are SOOOO very grateful for Nikka for taking such great care of her and then opening her home and her heart ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Percy Adopted

Look who got his forever home!!! Yes it's Percy and he is so very happy!!!

Percy and his buddy Posey were found together in a very bad home and taken to a shelter — where Percy was so scared that he walked around with his food dish in my mouth. Those days are over now, big guy! Welcome to your loving family! Thank you so much Arianna for helping him be his best self and thank you Bob and Claire for opening your hearts and home to this sweet boy!!! 


Miss Posey not only got her forever home BUT is also the first of our pups to get adopted in 2024!!

She was found together with her buddy Percy in a very bad home and taken to a shelter before getting her freedom ride. Posey is doing very well while being treated for a hurt leg, possibly due to something hard being wrapped around it. No longer leading a difficult life, Posey has hit the jackpot with her new home and is feeling all the love!!!

Thank you Arianna and Holly for fostering, and thank you Haley, Chris, and Jack for opening your hearts and home!!!!


We couldn't be happier for Major!!! 

Major was relinquished after being kept in a yard for the last 5 years of his life. He is blind but has learned to get along quite well. He is VERY social and loves to say hello to everyone. This boy is a VERY sweet guy.

Just look at him now! He hit the jackpot with his new forever family and knows what love is all about! 

From Major's adopters: We're enjoying life more than we ever imagined with our happy, smiley boy and it makes me happy to see that he is, too. We took Major with us to my hometown for our family holiday. My family fell in love with him just as much as we have. He met my family dogs. It's almost like my sheltie knew he was blind the way he interacted with him. They were so adorable running around barking together lol  It still amazes me how well he does without being able to see.

Pixie Doodle

We are SOOO excited to share that Pixie Doodle found her home for Christmas!!! Although we love ALL of our pups, this little girl held a special place in our hearts. She was shot with BB bullets and was heartworm positive. She did not have a good start to life. But, despite this, her resiliency shows through every day in her happiness in being with her humans!!

If only we, as humans, could be so forgiving.....

Special thanks to Brooke for fostering her, then Kristyn for fostering and eventually adopting her. Pixie Doodle's first sunrise with her mama. The start of many more!!!

Look who found her forever home!!

Miss Wren, now Tuesday, with all of her fursiblings and family, couldn't be happier!!! 

Special thanks to Amy and Nick (fosters) for helping her and to Lindsay, Cameron, and family for adopting her.❤️

Look who got his Christmas wish, his very own forever home!! That's right.... It's Chico!! ❤️❤️🙌🏻


We had pulled Chico from a local shelter, with a rough start to life — sadly, living outside and then owner surrendered. Despite all of this, Chico is VERY sweet and found just what he needed!!! Lots of reassurance and love.❤️


Special thanks to Ali for being willing to help, and to Robert for continuing to foster him. Thank you Crawford, Jennifer, and family for opening your hearts and home to this sweet boy!

You never have to be alone again!!!


Piper in her new home, complete with her loving human and a fursibling to call her own!!!
