What is Saving Grace All About?

Meet Molly and tour the farm

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

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!

Happy Tails Chip!Beau (formerly known as Chip) is doing great in his forever home! He is a super dog and we are head-over-heels in love with him! He has a sweet and playfully goofy personality. He is good with our grandchildren and seems to love everyone he meets. We did his genetic test and found out he is 100% mutt 🙂 #SGHappyTail ... See MoreSee Less

Oooh that’s sweet adorable loving funny girl Kellogg. She is fantastic! She was with us for a wonderful sleepover week 💞💞💞

We are unavailable those dates but are willing to do other dates- is that possible?!

How can it be determined if a current dog would be welcoming to a weekend sleepover guest?

Host Update for Vicky! See what her host said about their time with Vicky while she looks for her furever family:"I had the pleasure of hosting Vicky for the weekend and wanted to tell you she is the sweetest little dog anyone could ever ask for. She loves people but is not a big fan of other dogs. She is smart and picks things up quickly. She needed correcting while on walks, as she barks at other dogs. It might also be best that there not be cats or other non canine pets in her new home. I put a bell on the door knob and taught her how to ring it when she has to go out. It works like a charm, but she also figured out that even if she doesn't have to go potty, if she rings the bell, someone will take her outside! Vicky doesn't play with toys much but loves to play with people and get belly rubs. She loves to snuggle and before we went outside, she goes to her food bowl to eat first. Vicky is amazing and has adapted well to having three legs. The only issue I observed is that going upstairs is hard for her. Going down isn't an issue. Anyone who adopts her will get an awesome little snuggle bunny". To meet Vicky, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Host Updates for Arlette! See what her hosts said about their time with Arlette while she looks for her furever family:“We loved having Arlette with us this weekend!!! She was the most polite dog. She was great in the car and loved every minute of the rides we went on. She also was really good with walking on leash when we went to the park. No pulling or trying to get to other dogs. She was just happy to be there with us. She was fabulous at home - no potty accidents while she was with us. She played great with my two dogs-she was just like one of the family. She was just very relaxed with us and laid back. She is most happy just being with you and around you. She is a snuggler for sure and just wants to be near. I can't say enough good things about her! She is going to make a wonderful addition to someone's family. Thanks for sharing her with us!!”"Arlette loves long walks and plenty of play time followed by a long nap inside. She has an adorable dog bone shaped spot on her back and catches all sorts of compliments on her appearance during her walks! She greets other dogs well and makes fast friends. She played really well with our slightly larger male Australian Shepherd. She probably would love a doggy playmate at her new home. She loves to snuggle up and be by your side as you go through your day! Arlette walks well on the leash. (No puling unless she saw a squirrel or rabbit!) She is cautious around children. She makes for a good watch dog while walking at night as she will bark if she sees something she doesn’t think belongs near her family. Other than that she is NOT a barker! Arlette did fine in her crate but prefers to be out with her humans. She also enjoyed car rides, looking out the window and peering over the driver’s shoulder!""The #1 compliment Arlette received this weekend: She is the sweetest! She settled in well, and loved getting pets though wasn't overly demanding of attention. Good in her crate. She learned to sit and stay in just a couple of days. Arlette was happy to do anything with her human. She was equally great as a hiking buddy and a brunch date. We did an easy 4 miles at Occoneechee! Dogs of all sizes were happy to meet her. She is not a barker, even when other dogs barked at her. She was as happy getting out as she was lounging with me on the couch.Arlette had good leash manners, happy to follow whatever pace I set (unless she saw a squirrel - LOL) She enjoyed being one with mother nature, rolling in some particularly appealing grass. She liked playing tug of war with rope toys and squeaky toys.Arlette is a sweet, gentle girl who has a pretty perfect energy level for all kinds of households. Her furever home will be lucky to have her, as she seems like she will fit in anywhere!"To meet Arlette, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

If you stopped by the farm recently, you might have seen Melba helping out with adoptions! SUCH a sweet girl, this smaller-sized Beagle gets along great with all humans and dogs, and she's even computer-savy! OK, not really, but she wants you to know that while she loves helping out, the Farm really needs humans to fill these important roles--and there's always a need for new volunteers in all different areas! Meet Melba and/or learn more about becoming a volunteer through the link in our bio!#sgadoptme #sglovevolunteers #sgfarmlife #dogsofnc #rescueismyfavoritebreed #doglovers ... See MoreSee Less

Host Updates for the chillest husky ever Tippi! See what her hosts said about their time with Tippi while she looks for her new family:“Tippi won everyone over that she met this weekend with her mellowness and good manners. She liked to be where people were at, especially in our fenced-in backyard. She'd roam to a shady spot in the grass and snooze😴, getting up occasionally for some pats. When indoors, she found a favorite spot to lay down and keep an eye on everyone. Tippi was extremely well mannered: no attempts to climb on furniture; seems to be potty trained; no jumping on people; walks well on a leash; knows a few tricks; not fazed by the thunderstorm we had; and slept all night in her crate. She wasn't interested in toys or chewing on bones. What she lacked in puppy-style playfulness, she more than made up for in kindness and good manners. She had kids patting her all weekend and loved it, wagging her tail when getting attention. She'd make a great addition for anyone looking for a lower energy dog with a big heart.”"If circumstances were different I would’ve taken this dog after the moment I saw her. Tippi understands basic commands such as sit, stay, crate, and walk. She brought joy to all those around her with the constant wagging of her tail. We have a small dog and Tippi just wanted to play with her, although meal time is her time and did not want to be bothered. Tippi enjoyed long walks and even a light jog. Once comfortable in the car she sat down. Tippi didn’t have any potty mishaps. She did not attempt to get on furniture or go upstairs. She was a little anxious when out in new settings but once comfortable she was able to relax. Loves scratches behind her ear and would use her paw to nudge you if you stopped petting her. Tippi was well mannered and once adjusted fell into our routine".To meet Tippi, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Tippi looks like my white German Shepherd rescue Buddy. She is the sweetest like my Buddy 💕

She was adopted ❤️

Tippi reminds me so much of my Saving Grace pup, Bacchus … both the pics and description of personality. So sweet!

Tippi is great! So happy she’s been adopted!

We have a rescue that needs a forever home. How do we get Saving Grace to help us?
