Love Mutts Rescue, Inc (501c3, non-profit) We rescue cats, too !
Our Adoptable Pet ListJust the CatsJust the Dogs Note: There has been an update to Petfinder that sometimes causes an error when trying to get to the second page of our adoptable list. If you get an error which asks you to put in your zip code, go ahead and enter that. But then it will show you ALL pets near your zipcode, not just ours. So in order to see only our available pets, you need to come back to this homepage and click on the "adoptable pet" link again. Then it should allow you to go through all of our pages, and it should remember your zipcode so you won't have to do it again. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Our Adoption (& Foster to Adopt) Application ~ If you are planning to come meet a dog by appointment or at an adoption event, we would like to have this short application filled out ahead of time.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Love Mutts Rescue, Inc. (LMR) is a non-breed-specific dog rescue operating in central North Carolina and south central Virginia. We are a volunteer based non-profit corporation run by a Board of Directors. We rescue dogs in need from the surrounding communities, provide them with appropriate medical care, and place them in foster homes where they can be loved and nourished while they await their forever home. It is our goal to help each dog that comes into our rescue find the family that is destined to be theirs.
ABOUT THE RESCUE:
Welcome to the place where all dogs are loved!
Love Mutts Rescue was founded to provide a group of people the 'avenue' to rescue animals from shelters. These shelters, and anyone who turns over a stray, can depend on these animals getting the proper vetting needed, proper fostering to care for them until adopted, and places to have adoption events so the rescue & the rescued could interact w/ potential homes. We rely on volunteers to open their homes to foster, which is the only 'limiting' factor to save more.
The story of the starfish is our "motto"...
IT matters to THIS one...as we strive to save more of these 'voiceless' creatures.
Hebrews 13:2. "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels"
Love Mutts, since Aug. 1st, 2010--has placed over 3,300 dogs (& kitties) ! The founder, Marlianne Midyette, has been rescuing dogs/cats for 10+ years. With the help of a small 'village' of volunteers, she has overseen 5,000 dogs saved and placed (plus over 170 cats)!
Look for animals on these sites, too: www.wcanimalark.petfinder.com - nice shelter in Warrenton, NC; www.vance.petfinder.com shelter in Henderson, NC. There are many groups on FACEBOOK which serve the county shelters - there are so many dogs, puppies, cats, kittens available in shelters! Please adopt a shelter pet or rescue!
We have our rescues in foster homes. We accept donations at our adoption events. (Food, money, puppy pens)
