Who We Are

The mission of Independent Animal Rescue is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned and abused animals. We strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth. Independent Animal Rescue is a private non-profit organization that cares for stray, abandoned and abused companion animals primarily in North Carolina's Research Triangle Region of Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill. We provide medical attention, including all vaccinations and spay/neuter, shelter, transportation, foster care and adoption services. For more information, visit our website at

Adopting a Friend

Independent Animal Rescue has dozens of wonderful dogs and cats available for adoption. All of our animals are up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered. For more information, visit our homepage at and click on "Adopt a Dog" or "Adopt a Cat".

Adoption Events

Becoming a Foster Parent

Our organization would not exist without our wonderful foster homes, and we are always in need of new fosters for both dogs and cats. We provide training, supplies, and support for all of our foster parents while you provide the love! Please consider caring for one of the many animals in need in our community. If you are interested in learning more about our foster program, please contact us at
