Scroll to bottom of page for adoptable animals!
(last updated 02/29/23)

First and foremost, THANK YOU for deciding to adopt an animal in need! You are saving a life when doing so. The adoption process is as follows: 

If you see a pet you are interested and have any questions before submitting an application, you can reach out to us either through social media or email. You can find our contact information on our contact page. You can also find links to our social media pages on our get involved page.

If you have decided you want to put in an application for the pet you are interested in, please click the button under the image to the right that will lead you to our online adoption application. Once your application has been completed and submitted, it will take a few days to be processed. We will reach out to you about the approval of your application. Please know that as some pets receive multiple applications, we go with what we think the best match is for that animal, and where we think they will have the most success. We will try our best to notify you if the pet you are interested in has been adopted.

Once your application has been reviewed, we will arrange a time to discuss details about your application and the pet you are interested in, and also go over any questions about the process. In order to adopter with our rescue, we require the following:

- Must be 21 years or older to adopt

- Must have landlord approval to adopt the pet you are interested in (this only applies if you are a tenant)

- Current pets must be spayed/neutered, and up to date on vaccinations and preventions.

 

Approved Applications are required for meet and greets. 

(Since our rescue operates out of the Charleston and Charlotte areas, we have listed each animal's location at the bottom of their profile. Our rescues do not have to be adopted in the city they are fostered in).

Lulu(pending)

Lulu is a Catahoula mix and is approximately 3 years old. She is just under 40 pounds. She was surrendered into a shelter in her current condition. Although she is partially paralyzed after some kind of horrendous accident, she loves life and has so much to offer. Lulu is spayed, up to date on all vaccines and preventions, and microchipped. 

When Lulu came into our rescue, she hardly had any muscle along her spine. She also had sores from where she had dragged herself for so long. We got Lulu into the rescue and immediately got her a wheelchair and other necessary supplies for her to live more comfortably. 

Lulu has completed a combination of acupuncture, laser therapy, and physical therapy, which has shown us that she has more control over her back legs than we thought. She is able to walk a few steps from time to time, but loves to get into her wheelchair for adventures. 

Aside from her special abled needs, Lulu is the perfect dog! She is great with all dogs, cats, small critters, and children. She loves everyone she meets. Lulu enjoys car rides, breweries, going for walks, and playing fetch or tug of war. 

Lulu's ideal home is one with experience caring for a dog like her, or one willing to learn. She also needs a home that is financially capable of taking on multiple vet visits a year which include quarterly testing for UTIs, accupuncture and laser treatments, and she would also benefit from continued physical therapy. Lulu will be adopted with all of her supplies, and her foster mom is willing to be a forever ally for any needs/pet sitting in Lulu's future.

(Lulu is located in Charleston, SC).

lincoln 

Lincoln is a soft coated pittie mix and he is always wearing a smile! This happy boy is estimated to be about 1-2 years old, and he is about 52 pounds. Lincoln is neutered, up to date on vaccines and preventions, and is microchipped. 

At the shelter, Lincoln was used to "dog test" due to his submissive demeanor and liking towards other dogs. He still very much acts like a puppy when interacting with other dogs. He also tested well with cats at the shelter, but has not had exposure since then. He has been in a foster home by himself and done really well, but loves when he gets to have play dates with other dogs. Because of Lincoln's age and breed, he has a moderate to high energy level. He not only loves to run and play in the yard, but he loves brain games as well. 

Lincoln is crate and potty trained, and is currently fostered in a home with foster parents who are gone 8-5 every week day. He does great being left at home, but makes sure to get as many snuggles as he can when his foster parents are near! Lincoln would due best with an active adopter. 

(Lincoln is located just outside of Charlotte in Rockwell NC).

Cher(pending)

Cher and her siblings found themselves surrendered to a rural shelter. We are told they are daschund/ lab mixes. Cher is approximately 1-2 years old, and about 25 pounds. Cher was labeled at risk due to being extremely timid which led her to be nippy with shelter staff. We immediately agreed to take her, and have watched her blossom in her foster home! Here are some notes from her foster:

 

"Cher is incredibly friendly! Although she is shy at first, she warms up quickly and wants to follow you everywhere. She loves belly scratches, chews, toys, and enjoys playing with other dogs. She hasn't been nippy with me since the day she left the shelter. She likes her crate and is quiet while being crated. She is potty trained as long as she goes outside frequently/once waking from a nap. Cher is building confidence on the leash rather quickly. She has had limited exposure to social settings, but is very comfortable in a quiet home setting with a fenced yard. She may do well in other home settings/ without a fenced yard, but adopters would have to be willing to work on her socialization and confidence. Cher really loves to follow me around the house, but also really enjoys playing with the other dogs. She does still have some barrier reactivity with her crate, (she growls if another dog walks up to her inside her crate), but outside of that, she is very friendly. We think she would be best suited with submissive/laid back dogs who enjoy playing, but she's been fine bossed around by the dominant dogs in the home. She pays no attention to cats." 

 

Cher is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on prevention. She is fully vaccinated with the exception of one booster vaccine that will be covered by the rescue. 

(Cher is located in Charleston, SC).

Jagger(pending)

Jagger and his siblings found themselves at a rural shelter. Jagger and the other boy were the friendliest of the three. Jagger went to his own foster home, and has been doing wonderful! We were told he is a lab/ daschund mix, and he is approximately 35 pounds. Here are some notes from his foster family: 

"Jagger is a total snuggle bug. He is a velcro dog that loves to follow his person around wherever they go. He'll snuggle up on the couch with you, or sit at your feet and keep them warm while you work. He's playful, but is not highly energetic. He is in a foster house with 4 other dogs and has been great with all of them. He doesn't love sharing his person, but he will! He shares toys and treats with no problems. He is crate trained. He is doing great with potty training as long as he is let out frequently and once he comes out of his crate/wakes up from a nap. He has not been exposed to cats or kids."

Jagger is now neutered and fully vaccinated with the exception of one booster vaccine that is covered by our rescue when due. He is microchipped and up to date on prevention as well. 

(Jagger is located in Charlotte NC).

Jake

Jake was rescued from Chesterfield county with his brother. We don't know much about Jake's past, but it's clear humans were not kind to this sweet little guy which led him to be fearful of human contact. However, after a few weeks, Jake has tremendously progressed and has learned that not all humans are bad. We have no idea what his breed mixes are, but he's on the smaller side around 25 pounds. Here are some notes from Jake's foster: 


"Jake is shy at first, but once he feels safe, he is incredibly friendly. Jake loves belly rub, toys, sleeping on the couch, rolling in the grass, walking, and playing with his foster siblings. Jake gains a lot of confidence from other dogs in the house, therefore, his ideal home is one with another dog(s) and an owner(s) who is experienced and patient. Because Jake is still learning that not all humans are evil, a house without small children who would not respect his space would be preferable as well. Jake has not been exposed to cats, so not sure how well he would test with them.Jake is crate and potty-trained and walks tremendously well on a leash. Jake has limited exposure to large social settings and is still quite jumpy to loud noises but he is extremely brave when it comes to trying new things. He would do better on quiet neighborhood walks, preferably with a sibling.His foster parents want his future adopter to know Jake is one of the sweetest and bravest dogs they have ever fostered, and whoever adopts him will quickly fall in love with him. His foster parents will also be glad to have an open line to provide any guidance once Jake is adopted."

 

Jake is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and prevention, and microchipped.

 

(Jake is located in Charleston, SC).

Bandit

Bandit is approximately 14 weeks old and currently 16 pounds. Your breed guess is as good as ours! He is a soft, beautiful boy, with big paws to grow into. He will likely be a large dog when full grown. 

Bandit is your typical puppy! He spends his days in his foster home playing, sleeping, napping, then repeating the cycle over again! Bandit is doing great with leash training, potty training, and crate training. He loves to snuggle up in the bed, and will even snore in your ear. He enjoys playing with his foster siblings, and has also done wonderful with the cats in the home. Bandit has had some exposure to social outings and done great. 

Bandit is up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, and will be neutered with our rescue when he is a little bit older, (final vaccines and neuter are covered by the rescue). 

(Bandit is located in Charleston, SC).

Monkey

Monkey is an adorable tiny little mixed breed girl. She is approximately 10-12 weeks old. She is your typical puppy who loves to play, sleep, eat, and then repeat the cycle again! She is a spunky girl who loves to play with her humans or with other dogs when given the chance. We do not know what her breeds are officially, but we think she is a pit bull mix. She will likely be a medium size when full grown

Monkey is up to date on age appropriate vaccinations and prevention. She will receive her final vaccines and spay through the rescue once old enough. 

(Monkey is located in Charleston, SC).

Speckles

Speckles is a handsome mixed breed guy ready to find his perfect family! He is tall, lanky, and goofy. He is about 65 pounds and we believe he is about 2 years old. Speckles was one of the longest residents of the shelter, and spent months waiting to be adopted or saved. A combination of stress and limited food resources at the shelter left Speckles pretty skinny when we first got him. Thankfully he is a healthy boy who just needed extra calories. He has learned that he will never have to be hungry again, and has finally filled out into a beautiful, healthy boy. 

Speckles has thrived in his foster home! He initially wasn't sure about sharing food and toys, but his foster family and foster sibling showed him he is safe, and he slowly began to trust them. Speckles is now loves to play and share his toys and treats. He loves snuggles with both the humans and foster sister. Speckles would be fine as an only dog or with another dug with a submissive play style. Any other dogs in the home must be okay with his goofy play style. He unintentionally smacks and body slams when excited, (we can't blame him for being so happy post shelter life, and he shows his happiness with his whole body)!

Speckles has done amazing with crate training, potty training, and leash training. He is fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. 

(Speckles is located in Charleston, SC).

Walter

Walter is a young adult mixed breed that we pulled from Colleton County Animal Shelter. He immediately caught our eye when everyone else was barking in the kennels but he was just looking up at us with the biggest puppy dog eyes. We did his dog test, and saw how friendly he was with the other pups. His foster mom instantly fell in love, and he has been thriving in his foster home! Walter is about 50 pounds and likely around 2 years old. Here is his bio: 

 

"Hello, I’m Walter! My picture will probably match what you would think my personality is. Goofy, loving, and a big snuggle bug. Are you looking for a best friend for the rest of my life? Then I’m your guy. I love to go on walks with my harness, but don’t necessarily need to every day because I'm pretty laid back. I walk great on the leash and don't pull. I use the restroom outside like a gentleman. I love to play with all my foster brothers and sisters, and am super friendly  and patient. I can turn on the jets for a minute when I get the zoomies in the backyard, but I am an overall calm dog who would love to curl up next to you. My foster parents think I am the perfect dog for a family with or without other dogs ( preferably with). I love my tough chew toys/ropes and a comfy couch. Could your couch be my future? I have never met cats or kids." 

Walter is neutered, fully vaccinated, up to date on prevention, and microchipped

(Walter is located in Charleston, SC).

Paisley(pending)

Paisley is officially searching for her forever family! Paisley was dumped like trash as a puppy. At less than a year old, she was found by a loving family who noticed she was injured. She had sadly been shot in the face. We knew we had to help her once we saw her story. Thanks to generous donations to her care, she was able to receive jaw surgery and will live a mostly normal life. Paisley is estimated to be around 10 months old, and is a Catahoula mix. She is about 40 pounds.

There are so many amazing things to share about this girl! She is incredibly sweet. She loves to play with other dogs, loves people, and loves kids. She’s still a bit shy at first with new people/things which is totally understandable given her past, but she establishes trust so fast which is so amazing. Although Paisley loves children, she loves to jump up and give hugs and sometimes barrels over the other dogs in her foster home. She may be too energetic/strong for small children.

Paisley’s ideal home is an active home where she can have a balance of play time and snuggles. Her future adopters must help supplement her exercise through physical activity, lick mats, or brain games. She cannot chew on toys until her jaw is completely healed. This may be something that is lifelong depending on how strongly it heals. Because of this, we feel strongly she needs another dog in the home that matches her playfulness, as that is a huge way for her to get exercise. Adopters must also be okay with a little extra slobber - especially around the water bowl! Paisley is crate and potty trained, and does well on the leash. Her spay surgery is December 16 and she will be ready to go to her forever home shortly after.

*No small critters or cats for Paisley.*

(Paisley is located in Charleston SC)

Rebel

Rebel and her sibling found themselves at a rural animal shelter where they spent about two weeks before we rescued them. They have been thriving in their foster home! Rebel is now about 9 weeks old, and although we have no idea what her breed is, she is pretty small and likely won't be more than about 45-50 pounds full grown. 

Rebel is doing fantastic in her foster home! Her foster parents said she hasn't had an accident since the early days of fostering. She is doing great with crate training as well. Rebel loves to snuggle, nap, play in the yard with her friends, and get love from her humans. 

Rebel is up to date on age appropriate vaccinations. She will receive her final vaccinations and her spay through our rescue when she is old enough.

Rosa 

Rosa is an adult chihuahua mix who is quite the snuggle bug. She would love a person to call her own! She enjoys following her person, sitting on their lap, or snuggling up beside them. Rosa is a small girl under 15 pounds. Here are some notes from her foster mom: 

"Rosa is a VERY sweet little snuggle bug. If I'm sitting down, she is my lap warmer. She would be an easy girl for a gentle home. She's very well behaved and potty trained. She gets along well with her foster siblings who are also small. She takes a little bit longer to warm up to men, but once she does, she loves them the same".

Rosa is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and preventions, and microchipped.

Winnie (pending)

Winnie is the cutest doodle girl with a heart as sweet as can be! Estimated to be about 1 year old, and currently only about 35-40 pounds. She was pulled from a very rural shelter where she was not only covered in feces, but very painful, matted hair. Winnie has made quite the transformation! Here are some notes from her foster family: 

 

"Though initially reserved with strangers - especially men - Winnie transforms into a loving companion after just a few days of getting to know you. She loves a snuggle on the bed or couch, eagerly awaiting those delightful belly rubs. Winnie is very friendly with the other dog in the home. They play and relax together. She is crate trained, and she will rest quietly through the night and when her fosters leave the house. While she is housebroken with regular outdoor breaks, the occasional accident may occur if left indoors for extended periods. Winnie is a fan of outdoor adventures, particularly walks, though she is still working on her leash skills. She sometimes gets reactive when encountering other dogs/people, which is a behavior her adopters will need to address and continue working with. 

 

Winnie is well-suited for an active lifestyle, making her an ideal match for an adopter ready to engage in training walks or spend time in a fenced yard. While she manages well alone for a few hours, she may prefer a home where someone works remotely, providing her with the attention and companionship she thrives on. She is a true sweetheart and delightful addition to any loving home. Winnie thrives with the companionship of another dog."

 

Winnie is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and preventions, and microchipped. She will need regular grooming throughout her life, and she does well with a groomer. She is ready to bring joy and warmth to her forever family!

(Winnie is located in Charleston, SC).
