Adoption Application and FeesAn adoption application must be on file for each animal adopted. The application form can be found online - CLICK HERE. Our adoption fee is $175 covering all age appropriate vaccines, microchip, heartworm test (if old enough) deworm, and spay/neuter. It also includes heartworm treatment, or if adopter opts for slow kill it includes the doxycycline and 12 months of heartworm prevention. We are based in Roanoke Rapids, North Eastern North Carolina. We will not 'ship' animals to you. You will either have to collect them or we may be able to work with you to arrange transport if you can comply with our adoption conditions. If you live out of our area, contact your local rescue and ask them whether they will take one of our dogs so that you can adopt it. Contact us if you live in DE, MD, NJ, NY or PA as there are rescues in those states that take our dogs. If you can adopt, foster or move these pets to another rescue please e-mail:
We cannot provide you with veterinary care (free or otherwise)We do not have a vet on call or a vet on our staff. We do not have more access to a vet than the general public during the night or on weekends. We do not have unlimited volunteers or funding to get animals to emergency vetting services. Please understand this when calling or messaging us in the evenings and weekends. You as a pet owner have the same access to vet care that we do.
SO MANY DOGS WITH HEARTWORM
We currently have 17 heartworm positive dogs that are on long term treatment. Until we get some of them healthy and placed we do not have space for any large dogs. THIS IS WHY WE SAY PLEASE GIVE YOUR ANIMALS HEARTWORM PREVENTION. Lack of people using prevention is not only costing the rescue a lot of money, it is costing healthy animals in kill shelters their lives because we do not have space to pull them to safety.
Please donate to help us help these dogs - click here for more information.
Puppy Food and Old Newspapers
We have a lot of puppies at the rescue. We need canned and dry Pedigree and Purina puppy food for them. We use old newspapers for the floor of the puppy pens. If you have any, please drop them off at 54 Dogpound Rd, Halifax, NC 27839 or call 252.883.6413. If you would like to help us by donating dog/puppy/kitten food, you can drop it in our donation bin at Petsen$e or purchase and donate dog/puppy/kitten food at Petsen$e, 1251 Julian R.

What we do
Rainbow Animal Rescue is a no-kill rescue based in North Carolina. We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) rescue organization. We started our rescue in an effort to help the many unwanted, abandoned and mistreated animals in North Carolina and the surrounding areas. We foster pets in our homes until we can find loving 'forever' homes for them.
Foster Homes Urgently Required
We are always in need of adult dog food both dry and canned food. We prefer Purina or Pedigree dry food but we are grateful for anything. If you would like to help us by donating, you can drop off or purchase and donate dog food at Petsen$e, 1251 Julian R.
