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!

Saving Grace never turns their back on good dogs because they are injured. The cost to put these guys back together is often very high, and their time with us is long, but we believe all good dogs deserve a chance at a comfortable, happy life.Beemer came to us with a damaged leg, and it was determined that it needs to be amputated. Although amputation is never taken lightly, sometimes it is necessary in order to give these guys a healthy and happy life. Beemer is resting comfortably in a fabulous foster home, waiting for his surgery. Because he is such a sweet and happy guy, he is very optimistic about his future.Beemer is hoping we can find a sponsor to help cover the cost of his care, which is $830.

Hello! I added you all as my BIRTHDAY FUND RAISER and yesterday it was at least $250 via META(FB) I’ve never done this before so I want them to get you the $$$ASAP! We will try and navigate this and get you the funds. We really appreciate all the love and care you provide these little angels. We also want to help out and be weekend hosts!

He resembles our Bodie (SG alum-Beckmann). Bodie is such a happy boy all the time! ❤️

Host Update for Avery! See what his host said about their time with Avery while he looks for his furever family: “I just hosted Avery over the Thanksgiving holidays. I also hosted him the previous weekend. He was incredibly well behaved. Great with people and other dogs on walks around Shelley Lake. He was great with my entire family over Thanksgiving. We went to my Dad’s for dinner. Avery did go around the table begging but we all ignored him and he went and laid down.The first weekend I had Avery he was my shadow. He was pretty much in my lap or at my feet the whole time. During Thanksgiving he was more relaxed. Didn’t follow me from room to room and was content to sit on the other side of the couch.He definitely prefers being around his human. Think FOMO! He may need some encouragement with crate training but come bedtime, he was content to go in and sleep the night. If you work from home and would like a constant companion, Avery may just be your guy!"To meet Avery, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Oh my goodness! I cannot get over how much Jax looks like Ziggy (formerly "Mr. Big"), who I got from Saving Grace this past January.

So adorable!❤️

Host Update for sweet, sociable Scotch! See what his host said about their time with Scotch while he looks for his furever family: “Scotch is ready to be your perfect companion! Scotch is a loving, easy going guy who just wants to be by your side. He's good to go for a couple walks a day and then would love to spend the rest of the day on the couch by your side. He also keeps up with multiple outings to parks, breweries and pet stores too. He even picked out his own treats! He's such an easy well mannered dog. He walks great on a leash and almost never pulls unless he sees a squirrel and he's still rather gentle. He gets along with all people of all ages and all dogs we met as well, including my own energetic 40 lb dog who he got along great with despite their very different personalities. Scotch loves a good treat or bone to chew on, is food motivated and not very picky. His other favorite things to do include playing with toys, sniffing every inch of wherever he is, rolling all over the grass or your carpet to get the cutest full body scratch, and curling up with you in bed at night. Scotch has a lot of love to give and will gladly give it to anyone who gives him a kind hand. I had such a lovely time with Scotch and know whoever adopts him will too!” To meet Scotch, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Host Update for dearest Dudley! See what his host said about their time with Dudley while he looks for his furever family: “I am SO happy and GRATEFUL that I got to host DUDLEY for the extended Thanksgiving sleepover (5 nights)! Dudley is not only Stud-ly! with his handsome mug, but is super-chill, well-behaved, and awesome. He appears to be house-trained and will let you know if he needs to go out. He LOVES walks, and definitely has stellar hound instincts as he sniffed out squirrels and other critters with total excitement. He is working on his leash skills but easily redirected. Dudley is the perfect car traveler. He curled right up onto the seat and settled in. He also is eager to please and to learn – I worked on getting him to sit before meals, and Dudley got it in a day. He enjoyed meeting other humans and dogs on our walks, respectful, playful, and gentle. He was also great with our 10-week old kitten. Though they didn’t play together, they were hanging out and napping next to each other after a couple days. Dudley's super chill-ness clearly put the kitty at ease. Dudley hung out in the fenced yard while I was raking leaves, and sunbathed, rolled around, or napped. Inside, Dudley went back to super-chill mode, usually curling up for a nap with the kitty. (He can curl so small, and wraps his tail around to cover his eyes:-)!The best part of Dudley’s stay was seeing him warm up to me. I don’t know Dudley’s history, but his initial cautiousness began to melt away - and he melted my heart in the process! When he finds his forever family, he will no doubt warm up and be loving and loyal to the end. Dudley is truly special and whoever adopts him will be very lucky indeed!!” To meet Dudley, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

We love our hound dog from Saving Grace!

He is beautiful, I hope he finds a good home soon. Hounds are the best.

Host Update for smart Sarah! See what her host said about their time with Sarah while she looks for herfurever family:"Sarah was such a joy to have around for the weekend! She's a big, loving, wannabe lap dog. She was extremely well behaved in the house and already knows sit, lay down, stay, and belly rubs. She was super easy to train, very smart, and she was walking pretty nicely on a leash after just two days. She has a lot of love to give for sure! I didn't see Sarah with any cats or kids. We did encounter other dogs while out for walks and she seemed pretty excited but I didn't let her interact with them. Initially she puled on the leash. She learns VERY quickly though! In just a couple of days, she was walking very well on the leash and barely pulling. I had her sit when she got distracted or overly excited. She's GREAT in the car. She just sat down calmly. She didn't seem very interested in the crate so I just let her sleep with me in the bed. She snuggled right up and slept soundly through the night. She seems totally potty trained as well! She's just a big love bug and super sweet. After a big morning walk, she really just happily slept most of the day cuddled up with me".To meet Sarah, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.To host an amazing dog like Sarah, sign up for our host weekend sleepovers on our website's "Host a Dog"page: loom.ly/MG6X_8ILearn more about Sarah by checking out her bio on our website.https://loom.ly/yTzsrmw#hostupdate #rescuedog #dogrescue #doglovers #happydog #adoptme #savinggracenc#dogsleepover #hostadog #foster ...

Any idea of breed(s)? Or how big she will be?

I love this girl, and not just because we share a name! She is so personable! It has been fun to see her dear personality emerge while she has been at Saving Grace. She is good in her crate, LOVES to be scratched and pet (in the crate and out) and has some fun doggo friends. She has a funny way of looking at you while she is in her crate - she gives a little side eye and leans right up against the crate to indicate she is ready for some loving!

We’d love to meet this sweet dog

She is oh so sweet and cute! Definitely interested, she seems like she might be a great fit. Just super curious how she might do with cats since I have one. How do people test this before adding a sweet pup like Sarah to their family that already includes a cat? Saving Grace NC

Sarah is a beautiful girl!

Keren Edwards oh look at this sweet girl

Karli Pontillo Erhart she’s so cute!

Host Updates for sweet and goofy Salem! See what her hosts said about their time with Salem while she looks for herfurever family:"Salem has been an absolute sweetheart! She loves to snuggle and be wherever you are. We took a nice nap together and she curled up next to me while I did some work on my computer. She loves being pet, chewing on her toys, and is very good at playing fetch! She seems to know her name pretty well and is a fast learner with new things. She has done fabulous with scheduled bathroom breaks! She did wonderful on our walk and liked saying hi to new people and doggos. She even ran with me for a mile and half! When we drove to the park she just snoozed in the back and happily got in and out without fuss. She did excellent in her crate and she has a very manageable energy level. I hope someone adopts this sweet goofball soon"!"I was totally smitten with this little pup. She curled up next to me while I did work and gave lots of kisses. She would do the cute pointer thing and lift her paw when she saw a bird or squirrel. She sat on our balcony for an hour just watching them outside. Can’t say enough good things about sweet Salem! She is such a loyal sweetheart who just wants all your love and attention".To meet Salem, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.To host an amazing dog like Salem, sign up for our host weekend sleepovers on our website's "Host a Dog"page: loom.ly/MG6X_8ILearn more about Salem by checking out her bio on our website.https://loom.ly/VzOv33s#hostupdate #rescuedog #dogrescue #doglovers #happydog #adoptme #savinggracenc#dogsleepover #hostadog #foster ...
