Who We Are
We started doing rescue years ago when we lost our first Old English
Sheepdog Mandy. She was my
inspiration and is my angel. We
strive to find each pup that comes
here the perfect home. Some have
been abused or neglected... some too
big or too wild, others old and
sick. We often don't know their past
but we sure can promise them a
Adopting a Friend
We have an adoption fee that includes all vaccines, spay/neuter and
heartworm testing. This fee is
determined on a case by case basis. If a
dog tests positive for heartworms, we
will treat the dog before he/she is
adopted. IMPORTANT: Carolinas OES Rescue
will not ship dogs. Carolinas OES Rescue
wants each and every adoption to last a
lifetime this time around. Dogs are NOT
placed in homes on a first come, first
serve basis. Instead, they are carefully
matched with a family that can best
fulfill the individual dog's needs. It
has to be a match for both dog and
family in order to accomplish this goal.
* We must have your completed
Adoption Application on file before
we can discuss a dog.

earned the love of an old dog."

any dog is a commitment meant to last
the lifetime of the dog. The average Old
English Sheepdog lives 12 years so it
isn't a decision to be taken lightly. If
you aren't quite ready to adopt or
foster an Old English Sheepdog but would
still like to help a dog in trouble, you
might consider a donation. The
veterinary care required to get an Old
English Sheepdog ready for adoption can
be expensive and many times adoption
fees don't cover all the required care.
Lack of funding and good foster homes
are often the two biggest reasons
rescues have to turn a dog away.
Donations simply make it possible for us
to help and place more homeless dogs.
Have you ever considered fostering?
Excellent foster homes allow
Carolinas Old English Sheepdog Rescue to
save more dogs in need. These wonderful
individuals and families provide a safe
and loving place for a dog to stay until
their new family finds them. The time,
love and patience invested by fosters
helps to begin the transformation of an
unwanted, neglected or abused Old
English Sheepdog into a wonderful
companion for some lucky family. If you
think you're one of these special people
and would like to learn more about
fostering an OES, please contact us. You
will be helping to save maybe one more
dog that might not have otherwise had a
chance. It can be a very rewarding
Volunteers Make Rescue Possible!
We would love for you to be part of our

offer to help homeless Old English
Sheepdogs. Whether donating a service or
skill for one hour per month to
fostering a homeless dog, each and every
volunteer is an important part of our
system. If you can help, please take a
few moments to complete our online

have an interest. If you have something
to offer that is not on our list, PLEASE
