Dogs Needing Homes in North Carolina

Why are so many dogs marked URGENT!

Dogs are coming into animal control every day. We must have kennel space for them which means those dogs that have been there more than 3 days need to move elsewhere. The dogs marked URGENT! are in need of funding so that we can move them to a new home or to another rescue. Some are in foster care or boarding, but must be moved to rescues or adopters so fosters and rescue kennels have room for dogs now at animal control. What happens when animal control run out of space?!

We are in a poor rural area and there are often more adoption opportunities for dogs elsewhere. Many of the dogs that end up at animal control are surrendered or dumped because they need medical treatment. We cannot pass on a sick dog so we have to get them vetted first. Most often we are the ones who have the dogs neutered, treated for heartworm, etc.

What can you do to help?
  • Find a rescue that will take one of our dogs - rescues in northeastern states are more likely to have room.
  • Foster a dog until we can find it a permanent home - This will give a dog at animal control more time.
  • Adopt a dog from Rainbow Animal Rescue - Not only does this save the life of the dog you adopt it also provides a space for another dog in need.
