Meet Molly and tour the farm

Molly Goldston started Saving Grace in 2004. Find out more about this amazing place and its programs!

Nursing German Shepherd on the mend at Saving Grace after machete attack.

A German Shepherd is recovering at Saving Grace and continues to nurse her six puppies after being slashed a couple of times with a machete. A Lumberton man has been charged with animal cruelty.

How do I adopt from Saving Grace?

We provide a unique adoption experience to pair you with dogs that fit your needs and profile.

Host a Dog for a Weekend!

Most weekends, we have dogs that would love to sleepover at YOUR house.

Join our Foster Team

Before our guests are ready for adoption, they often need to spend some time in foster getting healthy and socialized. Do you have space in your house and your heart to help out?

Volunteer with Us!

There is always a lot to do both at the farm and off to support the mission of Saving Grace. Let's see if there's something that you can do to help us out!

Host Update for Audrey! See what her host said about their time with Audrey while she looks for her furever family: "Audrey is a lovable teenager! I had her for a second week and it was even more fun! She does well in the car. She jumped on the couch and we picked back up from how it was. She’s always ready for attention and pats, and will let you know when she especially needs that love. She never needed a crate and let me know when she needed a bathroom break.She loves walking but also loves chasing squirrels - I think she’d do well with a backyard to run freely and explore. I think she’s a very smart dog and takes direction very well".To meet Audrey, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

She is so amazing! We had her for a weekend and all 3 of my kids (3,7,9) loved her. She was polite to our male foxhound and ready to cuddle with us when we were winding down. Such a loving and gentle natured dog.

Sweet Freckles has freckles all over, and she's adorable for it! A classic hound, she loves being outside and watching squirrels and promises to keep your yard free of them! Friendly and affectionate with people, what she wants most of all is her own her own large back yard and someone who loves the outdoors as much as she does! And if there's another dog to match her playful energy, all the better! Meet her with an adoption request, link in our bio!#sgadoptme #savinggracenc #rescueismyfavoritebreed #bestfriends #dogsofnc #happydog #doglovers ... See MoreSee Less

We are lucky to have some pretty amazing volunteers! Check out this adoption story from the perspective of one of our adoption counselors Cheryl. She does a wonderful job of sharing an inside look to adopting a rescue dog & helping families find the right dog. ••••“Tonight was a mix of all kinds of different things at the farm. It was a nice night out, not too hot. I had people with children looking for puppies, there was a girl whose friends hosted a dog last week that she loved. So they came with her to help take him home. There were people who weren’t sure what they wanted yet. There were a lot of people that were trying to figure out if they were ready for a dog yet since they’ve lost their last ones. My last family came prepared, with a list another volunteer who is their friend, gave them. We looked at those dogs, and determined who might be best with their cats, and they visited with all of them, plus a few others that they saw. Eventually they had it narrowed down to 2, and they had a family member who shared a name with both dogs. I laughed and said well do we like one of the family members better? They did, and after spending more time with the dogs, they went home with Walter; whose name will stay, because Grandpa Walter was well loved, and Walter the big ole pup will be too.”#adoptiontails #rescuedog #savinggracenc #weloveourvolunteers ...

He did excellent in the car and loved watching the world go by on our way to local parks. Dylan was very excited and interested in the wildlife on our walks and did well with the dogs and people he met. Dylan loved to play and chew on toys but he is totally down for snuggles as well! He was super sweet the whole weekend and enjoyed lots of cuddles, pets, and walks. He did very well in his crate and did his potty biz outside. Dylan is a super happy and sweet dog and has a great energy level"!To meet Dylan, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Host Update for Ranger! See what his host said about their time with Ranger while he looks for his furever family: "Ranger was an immediate friend with both of our dogs - one an 8 month old 75 pound guy and another a 12 year old girl. He enjoyed playing with our puppy and loved cuddling with our older dog. We took Ranger to a bottle shop for a few hours where he got to meet lots of people and kiddos. He was super gentle with the kids and the adults loved him too and were so impressed with his demeanor and his good looks! Ranger has potty habits and knows to go outside. He was impressive on a leash and didn't pull! He would enjoy a backyard where he could hang out in the sunshine for hours at a time! Ranger also did great in the car. Ranger slept well in his crate at night and didn't make a peep. We let him sleep in the bed with us once and he was a very sweet cuddler"!To meet Ranger, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Host Update for Hadley! See what her host said about their time with Hadley while she looks for her furever family: "I do not have kids or other dogs but, on our walks Hadley wanted to greet everyone, both humans and other dogs. She was friendly and gentle. She is an absolute sweetheart of a dog. She was very good on the leash. She likes to lead but I held the leash in a heal command and she was awesome. She does not pull and is a very good walker. She is not crazy about the car so I used a seat belt harness for dogs for her to keep her safe. She was very good about letting me know she needed to go out to potty. She even brought me her harness and leash! She is incredibly playful and chew toys are good for her. She loves to play and just has a sweat disposition". To meet Hadley, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Rambo is looking so handsome! He got his name because he has the spirit of a fighter and he needed to fight to get his health back. When he came to us he was skinny and frail and his hair was falling out. But with time in a great foster home and good nutrition this little older gentleman has fought his way back to be Mr Handsome!At about 9-10 years old this guy is loving life in his foster home but would really like a home to call his own forever. He is house trained and loves walks but his favorite activity is to curl up in a soft bed. He’s looking for a quiet home, no hustle and bustle for him. Could you be his people? Come meet him and fall in love. ... See MoreSee Less
