We are so grateful to everyone who has been working with rescue/sheltering during Florence and her aftermath! We work weekly with many shelters in Eastern NC and really appreciate all the support currently being offered to these animals. If you are looking to assist with animals displaced by Florence, or become a regular volunteer, we welcome you to join the Saving Grace Team.
We have the most wonderful and dedicated volunteers around! And of course so many awesome animals. We took in more than dogs today from shelters in need and look forward to seeing these guys through their rescue journey and into loving homes.

We are in desperate need for foster homes at this time. Our most immediate need is for puppy foster homes, which is a commitment of 2-4 weeks. We have a great foster team who is willing to assist your needs through the foster process but do ask for your understanding that these are young puppies or displaced dogs. We appreciate your willingness to help but need foster homes to understand these are displaced dogs and in no way can we confirm any of these dogs are hypoallergenic or housetrained. We do know they are lost, overwhelmed, terrified and in great need of your love and devotion. If you are willing to open your home (and heart) to pups in need, please let us know. Your love and understanding is much appreciated!
