Our Adoptable Pet List   Just the Cats   Just the Dogs Happy (Adopted) Tails! 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. Please inform your veterinarian that we will be calling so they will be able to answer a few questions as we check this reference!

Adoption & foster-to-adopt process
If you want to adopt or foster-to-adopt a dog or cat, an ADOPTION APPLICATION must be filled out and APPROVED before you may take a dog or cat home. To keep our dogs and cats safe, our rescue no longer does same day adoptions. Additional information will be emailed to you once your application has been approved. Please come to an adoption event to meet the many dogs at our events. Most of our kitties are available by appointment. Our rescue does NOT operate out of a shelter. Instead, our dogs are kept safely in foster homes.
Our Foster Registration Form
If you would like to foster for us, please fill out this form to be added to our foster list. The information will help us place a dog that would be a good fit in your household. Our rescue needs FOSTERS, more at holiday time due to so many dumped at shelters. PLEASE sign up on website to be a foster.

Our Volunteer Registration Form

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.


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 we strive to save more of these 'voiceless' creatures.
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: - nice shelter in Warrenton, NC; 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)

Adopt your new best friend from a rescue or a shelter, get them spayed or neutered between the ages of 4 and 6 months! Saving Lives in Raleigh 919-772-0211 and low-cost spay/neuter... PAL 804-359-6369--prevent a liter 3421 W. Cary St..Richmond, VA 23231
