What is Saving Grace All About?
As I travel throughout rural North Carolina, visiting our wonderful shelter partners, I am constantly reminded of two things: the dedication of their staff, and there are so many dogs, regardless of their medical needs or background, that deserve a second chance.
I would like to personally thank everyone who donated in honor of Betty White’s 100th birthday. Whether it was to Saving Grace, or another shelter, you made an impact to a life in need. What a celebration Betty must be having with all the glorious animals at the Rainbow Bridge!
There is still time to get a spot in the Saving Grace NC 2022 calendar! For $500 your pup can be featured for a month, or for $15 feature your dog for a day.
Spring is one of our favorite times of the year at the farm. The cold winter months have given way to the joy of our awakening earth. The renewed hope gleaming from new mothers, puppies, the neglected and the mature all seem to have a new energy this season brings to all of us.

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?

Host Update for Happy Hammond! See what his host said about their time with Hammond while he looks for his furever family:“Hammond is as sweet as they come! He was great with people and with our other dog too. He is a gentle kind soul and deserves so much love! He loves being outside! He is Mr. Explorer, and follows his nose. A litte time is all he needs to enjoy new places and sounds. Even though he seems shy at first, he loves getting pets and is open to so much love. He is such a well behaved boy. He took all of his potty breaks outside and slept through the night in his crate. He enjoyed the car, looking out the window the whole time. He is still learning some commands and with a little training and TLC he will get there.This sweet pup just deserves all the love ❤️. Whoever gets Hammond is one lucky family!”To meet Hammond, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

Host Update for Leanne! See what her host said about their time with Leanne while she looks for her furever family:“We had a great weekend with Leanne! She loved walking and sniffing all the smells. Could see her enjoying a fenced yard so she could go at her own pace, zigzagging and tracking all the scents. She rode perfectly in the car, and loved laying down in the back seat and enjoying the ride. She had no potty accidents in the house. While she would sleep quietly in the crate, I would bribe her to go in (chicken is her favorite!). She had no mobility issues, and was able to easily navigate the stairs. We played music bingo at a local brewery, and she soaked up all the love from every human who passed by. She is a really sweet girl who loves attention, belly rubs, and making new human friends!”To meet Leanne, schedule an appointment by submitting an adoption request on our website's "Adopt" page.

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.

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 ...

Host Update for Dylan! See what his host said about their time with Dylan while he looks for his furever family: "We had a great time hosting Dylan this past weekend! 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.
