Kuranda Dog Beds
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.

Hickory Hill Canine Rescue are a private rescue group that have been helping homeless dogs for over 14 years. They are a 501c3 non-profit organisation and rescue dogs from the Hanover County Pound as well as Caroline and King William Pounds. All of these dogs were owned by someone at some time. Those that are given to the pound by their owner have a very short time to find a home. Most of these dogs are picked up as strays but seem housebroken, child friendly, some even know basic commands. Hickory Hill Canine Rescue is their last chance. We have an adoption stand on the second and fourth Saturday of each month at the Mechanicsville PetsMart where you can meet some of the dogs needing homes. See below for details. If you would like to assist the animals in the care of Hickory Hill Canine Rescue please send your donation to the above address or donate via PayPal by clicking here. Hickory Hill Canine Rescue is a 501c3, non profit organization which means your donations are tax deductible.

Meet the dogs at our Adoption Stand

Visit our Adoption Stand located at the Mechanicsville PETsMART 7225 Bell Creek Rd Ste 228, Mechanicsville, VA 23111, 12pm-2pm on the second and fourth Saturday of each month - click here for map.

Thank You for the Donations
We require old blankets, towels, sheets, quilts, pillows, Etc regardless of condition which we use as bedding for the dogs. Of course, any old dog items that you may no longer require such as beds, bowls, leads, toys, tennis balls, Etc are always welcome since some of the dogs destroy these!

Thank you to everyone who has ever donated food, animal supplies, time, money, old blankets, whatever to help a homeless animal. Millions of animals are dying all over the world each and every year. To any rescue organization your donations allow them to continue to rescue and care for some of these animals.

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.

Shopping at Amazon?
If you are going to buy something from Amazon please access the Amazon website via our link so that we receive a 0.5% commission. It does not cost you anything extra and will help feed the rescued animals for another day.

Adopting a Friend
All adopters are required to fill out our Adoption Form which will be reviewed before the adoption process can continue. All adopters must be at least 18 years of age. We will adopt out of state but only animals that have already been spayed or neutered. We will not fly any animals under any circumstances. All animals (except puppies) are already altered, current on all vaccinations and heartworm negative and on preventive. All puppies must be neutered by 6 months of age. All dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, current on all shots, heartworm negative and healthy before being available for adoption. This fee helps cover the veterinary costs and allows them to continue saving and caring for these unfortunate animals.

When looking for that new family member please remember to really think about the things you and your family want and need in a pet that fits the family lifestyle. Get to know your breeds! Some breeds require more space, exercise and circumstances than others. Even if you are going to adopt a mixed breed, look into what it's primary breed needs in a home, environment and exercise. Your new family member needs to be wanted by everyone in the family and included in your daily lives to be truly happy. Click here for more information on how to find the right dog.

Dog Photo Loading HONEY - Labrador Retriever/Cattle Dog Mix?, neutered female, 7 years approx, medium size. Click on the picture to see more photo's. Honey was seized by Animal Control in a neglect case. She was only 25 lbs, had lots of missing hair and raw skin, was loaded with intestinal parasites and heartworms.

She is so forgiving and just loves people. She would rather kiss you than eat! Honey is active and will need a fenced yard. She is cratetrained, does well on leash and likes car rides. Honey can be very picky with her doggie friends and loves playing with dogs she likes but does not like all dogs so probably needs a home without other animals.

Dog Photo Loading JOAN - Beagle Mix, neutered female, 6 years approx, medium size. Click on the picture to see more photo's. This pretty girl was found as a stray with Melissa who is believed to be her daughter. Joan is a beagle mix, approximately 6 years old and 35lbs. She is a happy soul who loves to be petted and made over. Joan spent a week in a foster home and did really well. She enjoyed being on the couch, sleeping in the bed and playing with another dog. Joan just needs a patience loving owner to take a little time with her. Joan will need a fenced yard to keep her from ever being a stray again. This girl was well on her way to starving when the rescue found her. Joan has quickly learned what its like to be well-fed, have clean water and a decent place to lay her head. She would do best in a home without small toddler children. Joan is spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Dog Photo Loading PAIGE - Whippet mix?, neutered female, 2 years approx, medium size. Click on the picture to see more photo's. This sweet girl came to the rescue as an unclaimed stray. We think she is a Greyhound/Whippet type mix due to her long narrow face and body style. Paige is a very unique girl and does have some emotional special needs. She came to the rescue at just a year old and was two years of age in March 2018. It took this girl over a year to finally respond and come to the volunteers she sees regularly. Paige is still very shy and scared of new people. She is going to need an adopter who is able to come out to the rescue (which is at a private home) and spent some time winning her over. A secure fenced yard is a must for this girl. Paige does like other dogs. She will never be a social butterfly but is a sweet girl. Our best guess is the first year of her life she did not have much, if any, human contact. Paige is spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Dog Photo Loading ROSCO - Pit Bull Terrier, neutered male, 2-3 years approx, medium size. Click on the picture to see more photo's. Roscoe is approximately 2-3 years old and 50lbs. He has a sweet loving personality and does know some basic commands like sit, stay, wait. Roscoe has always been an indoor pet and part of a family. He is good with children but not good with dogs or cats. Sadly he just got so jealous of the other dog in the home that its just not working out anymore. The other dog is larger and has been in the home longer than Roscoe. He is very smart, eager to please and very loyal. A secure fenced yard is preferred. Roscoe is neutered, house trained, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on preventive.

Dog Photo Loading RUFUS - Hound mix?, neutered male, 4-5 years approx, medium size. Click on the picture to see more photo's. This sweet, quiet boy sat on the side of Rt. 301 in Caroline County for 5 days in the same spot waiting for someone to pick him up. Roo is approximately 4-5 years old and healthy weight will be about 50lbs. He is a gentle, easy going fella who seems to be fine with other animals. Roo is quickly realizing all the rescue wants him to do is be healthy and loved and he does not need to worry about hunting anymore. He has wonderful potential to be a wonderful companion or addition to a family. Roo is neutered, current on his shots and microchipped. He is heartworm positive and until he can be in a foster home or is adopted will be starting a slow kill treatment.

Dog Photo Loading SQUIRT - Labrador mix?, neutered male, 4 years approx, medium size. Click on the picture to see more photo's. This unique boy is thought to be a Basset Hound/Lab mix. He has a short stocky body and a big head! Squirt is 4 years old and approximately 35lbs. He has lots of personality and loves people. Squirt MUST be the only pet as he is mot good with dogs or cats. If your looking for lots of love in a short, stocky package then Squirt may be just what you are looking for. This little man is lots of muscle in a short body so would do best in a home without small children. Fenced yard required, 6ft preferred.
