Tri-County Animal Rescue

Our Pet List

Our Featured Pet...Koda!

Koda will balance a hotdog on his head until he finds a new home.



We have cats and kittens available 7 days a week at the Petsmart in Gastonia. We will also have puppies and small dogs available for adoption Fridays from 6-9 p.m. and Saturdays from 12-6 p.m.

Who We Are

Tri-County Animal Rescue was originally formed to help homeless beagles and bassets find homes in Gaston, Lincoln and Mecklenburg counties of North Carolina. Of course, over the years we've also acquired our share of other homeless puppies and dogs, as well as cats and kittens.

Adopting a friend

All of our pets are up-to-date on their shots and, if old enough, are spayed or neutered. Our adoption fee varies by the type of dog. Although the fees vary, they are typically comprised of the cost of veterinary care and other services that were paid while the dog was in our rescue program. The fees rarely cover the total cost of the care provided, but does help ensure that the next dog who comes into our rescue will also be able to have the care they need.


We are always in need of monetary donations to help cover our operating costs. We have no paid employees, therefore all of the money goes directly to the care of our animals. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please mail a check to: Tri-County Animal Rescue, P. O. Box 483, Alexis, NC 28006. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Additionally, you can make donations of any amount through PayPal. Just click on the button below.
