About Us

Adopting A Friend

All RHR dogs are fostered in individual homes and are accustomed to living indoors as part of the family. All dogs are spayed/neutered and up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations prior to adoption. We hope that you find your new best friend on this page! If you have any questions about the dogs or the process, please contact us at  adoptions@rottweilerheartsrescue.org.

Who We Are

RHR is a Durham, NC area rescue/placement organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and careful rehoming of neglected, lost, surrendered, or otherwise homeless Rottweiler dogs in the central North Carolina region. RHR is also dedicated to preventing this by promoting responsible dog ownership regarding the proper care and training of Rottweilers.

Our Mission Statement: Rottweiler Hearts Rescue (RHR) is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of Rottweilers, placing them in safe and loving homes, and educating the public on the Rottweiler breed and responsible pet ownership.

Our Purpose: To provide care and rehabilitation for abandoned and unwanted Rottweilers; To find permanent adoptive homes for the dogs in our care; To educate the public about the Rottweiler and other “bully” breeds; To educate the public about responsible pet care and ownership.

Rottweiler Hearts Rescue does not have a shelter and depends on the generosity of our foster homes who open their homes and hearts to our rottweilers. RHR is an all-volunteer rescue organization with seasoned rescuers who have been rescuing and placing Rottweiler dogs for many years. Our volunteers receive no pay and all money given to and raised by Rottweiler Hearts Rescue through donations, adoptions, events, and fundraisers goes directly to benefit our rescued Rotties.
