It is Holiday time at Saving Grace! While we’re disappointed not to host our annual Holiday Open Houses, there are still plenty of opportunities to support the animals.

The store is decked out and ready to see you! This is a great way to shop local and support shelter animals at the same time.
We have gifts for dog and cat lovers, including some really fabulous locally made items.

A Note to our Community and Adopters
It’s no secret this year has been a challenge for many of us as individuals and businesses. Everyone here at Saving Grace is right there with ya!
We appreciate the continued patience of our community and adopters more than you know. Please note the information on our website, outlining adoption process has changed, and continues to be fluid as we navigate our options and limited resources during the fall-out created by the pandemic. In order to ensure every animal that comes through our program is spayed neutered, surgery must be done prior to transferring ownership to the adopter. Many of our partnering spay/neuter clinics, veterinary hospitals have either closed or been working at half-staff since March and the start of the pandemic which has put us way behind on spay/neuter surgeries and finalizing adoptions.
As we’re sure you can imagine this is not ideal for Saving Grace, however we appreciate and support our partnering clinics as they too do the best to serve each patient and also ensure the safety of their staff and clients. We want to have your pet in your home as much as you do. We are fully aware and appreciate this is a very exciting time as you wait for your new dog. I promise we are doing the best we can to get them to you as quickly as possible.
Although this varies by dog and their specific needs, this can take several weeks or a month. In the day-to-day demands of caring for our pack, both on site and in foster, managing surgeries and communicating with our partner shelters, we may not be able to provide consistent or immediate updates to each adopter as far as the status of your adoption pick up. In full transparency we may not know, and don’t have the manpower/admin staff that a full service clinic employs to maintain updates.
The need for Forever homes and Foster homes is more crucial now than ever before. While we know it can be frustrating, we appreciate your understanding and patience while we work to make adoption possible for your new dog and the dozens more waiting in the wings. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt they are worth the wait and are convinced your new pup will agree.

Grab your “Adoption is Essential” T-shirt while they are available
This year has brought so many amazing dogs to Saving Grace for care and adoption, however it has also brought our share of challenges.
We were disappointed to cancel a number of scheduled fundraisers and the need for your support is greater than ever. The number of animals depending on care through Saving Grace continues to grow. We need your support to continue our mission of providing medical care and homes to animals in need.
We currently have our “Adoption Is Essential” T-shirts (long-sleeve versions, too!) available as a fundraiser. They can be purchased online, in person at the Saving Grace Supply Co. , at Inspiration in Raleigh and the Cotton Company in Wake Forest.
As always we appreciate your continued support. With your help we can continue making adoption possible for each and every pup in need!

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.
