About Us

We’d like to extend a special “Thank You”, and to recognize the love and dedication of our volunteers, foster families, and those who have been willing to open their hearts and their homes to rescue a dog.

Forever Home Canine Rescue is a 501(c) (3) non-profit, all-volunteer supported rescue for unwanted and homeless dogs. We are solely supported by kind donations and receive no government funding. Small breed dogs are our specialty, but we do on occasion rescue other sizes of dogs. We do not have a shelter, and operate solely out of a network of foster homes.

Our mission is to find loving “forever” homes for the deserving dogs in our care, and to provide education regarding responsible pet ownership. Forever Home Canine Rescue’s base is in Iredell, Catawba, and surrounding counties of North Carolina. We rescue dogs from unfortunate situations such as abandoned, neglected, or surrendered by their owners…many who find themselves homeless at County Animal Control Shelters. Through the use of our Foster Home Program we can then place them in their forever home.

Our main focus is to match the right dog with the right family. This means that we are advocates for the DOG first. Prospective adopters should bear this in mind and try to be patient as we review each application and evaluate each dog’s personality to find the best possible combination We are experienced rescuers with over 30 years experience. Helping you find the right pet to fit your family and your lifestyle is what we do best!

If you are interested in helping the animals, there are a variety of ways you can do so. Contact us for further information about various volunteer options…OR… make a donation to our cause.
