Come Meet Us!

We host adoption events on Saturdays from 1130AM-4PM at the Petco in Mt Pleasant on Highway 17, in the Walmart shopping center, just south of the I526/Highway 17 intersection. We do not have a physical shelter as we are a foster-based rescue. We are all volunteers and have full-time employment as well as our rescue responsibilities! You are welcome to contact us for an application to be pre-approved to adopt from the rescue. Potential adopters must come to the adoption event to meet and adopt our animals. Adoption fees are payable in cash only.

Adopting A Friend...

Just a few *rules* but we try to keep it as simple as possible... All of our animals will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We will ask for landlord and vet references to make sure your new pet is welcome as well as taken care of. If you cannot provide a vet reference, a home visit may be required. If you currently have a resident pet, we ask that the new pet meets your current pet before we finalize your adoption. We welcome out of state adopters but please keep in mind that you would need to come to Charleston, SC to meet and adopt our pets. We do not ship/transport our animals. Puppies and dogs are adopted to approved individuals on a *first come, first adopted* basis. Due to limited foster space, we are unable to hold an animal to be picked up at a later date. Please be prepared to meet, adopt and take home your companion the same day. Adoption fees vary by animal and are listed in each individual posting. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at! Please keep in mind that we do our best to make an educated guess as to the breeds of our rescued pets. In rescue we rarely see the parents of the puppies we take in, and even when we do they too can be mixed breed dogs! Thanks for looking to adopt a rescue animal :)

Ready To Take The Next Step?
