Welcome to Saving Grace Animals for Adoption

Saving Grace is a non-profit, 501-C3 organization based in North Carolina dedicated to helping homeless animals in our community find permanent, loving homes where they will be treated as family members for the rest of their lives.

Adopted dogs make wonderful pets! So many people are told they can only get a dog with a good temperament if they purchase a pure bred from a breeder. This is not true. Dogs at Saving Grace are selected from local shelters where lack of kennel space keeps animals from being placed up for adoption. Before a dog comes into the Saving Grace program, it is evaluated for temperament and suitability as a family pet.

The evaluation continues when the dog is brought into the Saving Grace program. Dogs do not live in kennel runs; they have access to lots of fresh air and space to run and play together with other dogs. We observe their interaction with new dogs and people on a daily basis.

Dogs at Saving Grace receive any and all medical treatment necessary. This includes, but is not limited to: spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart worm test and treatment (if necessary), worming, and flea and tick prevention. All dogs get a microchip which can be traced back to the adopter and to Saving Grace.

While at Saving Grace, dogs are crate trained, begin a housebreaking routine and basic manners such as walking nicely on a leash, how to sit and not to jump on people. Each dog is individually handled and observations about their personalities are noted.

Saving Grace keeps about 80 dogs available for adoption and has a variety of sizes, shapes, ages and temperaments. When an adopting family comes to Saving Grace, we want to learn as much about you as we know about our dogs.

We ask you to describe what you are looking for in a dog and your expectations of your new companion. We want to know what your daily life is like, activity level, and what the family composition is (an individual, an older couple, a family with young children, etc.).

We take into consideration that information and the personalities and temperament of our dogs. That way, we’re able to make the best possible match between the family and dog (or dogs!) and create a successful and happy outcome.

We have a lot of great foster homes and a fabulous farm where the dog would love to meet you, but since these guys are housed in private residences, we do require an appointment.

Our wonderful volunteer Mary shared this donation picture with us recently.

“My granddaughter, Sammy had her 12th birthday party last week and asked for donations for Saving Grace. I’ve attached a picture of her with one of Saving Grace dogs, Montana that they adopted a while back. She is a wonderful setter. Sammy loves Saving Grace and cannot wait until she’s 18 so she can volunteer. Sammy helps me in the Chi Garden every Open House, rain, shine, cold or hot. She has a tremendous love of dogs. The Millers have 3 dogs and would love to have at least 4 more!”

Thank you Sammy for your generous heart for our dogs!
