Our Adoptable Dogs
Please note: Our dogs are NOT located in Lenoir, NC. They are in foster homes throughout NC, SC, and VA. You must be willing to drive to the dog’s foster home in order to adopt it. The location of each dog is listed at the bottom of its bio.
Our Available Dogs are updated daily. If you see a dog on our site, it is available for adoption on that day. Emails asking if a dog is available for adoption will not be answered.
Just as the Available Dogs are updated daily, so are the bios. The bios are very descriptive and tell everything we know about a dog. If something is not listed in a bio, we do not know it at the time you are reading it. Emails asking for more information will not be answered.
BEFORE you can meet any of our dogs, you must be approved to adopt. This means you must first download an application from our website and submit it via email or fax: (1-910-401-1317). A vet check or a reference check is then completed and if that goes well a home visit is done. The entire process takes 3-7 days normally, depending on your location. If we do not have anyone in your area to do your home visit we will ask you to reach out to local vets offices, shelters, and rescues to get this done.
Please do not apply to adopt a dog if you are not prepared to welcome it into your home within two weeks of applying. SRC does not hold dogs and adopts them out on a first come first served basis based on a completed adoption process.
SRC does not adopt out its dogs to families with children under ten years of age. This is for the protection of the dogs and for the protection of the children
Once you are approved to adopt you must make your donation online via our website and sign an adoption contract BEFORE you pick up your new dog. SRC does NOT do meet and greets on the same day as adoptions so if you want to meet the dog first, you must make two trips to the foster home. Keep in mind that if, while you are waiting to meet a dog, another approved applicant decides to commit to it, the dog is no longer available for adoption.SRC is handled by volunteer assistants that have a multitude of duties involved with helping rescued schnauzers. Pertinent information about the dogs available for adoption is posted on our website so questions by telephone are usually answered more quickly by reading the write up about each dog posted for adoption. Should you need assistance by phone you may email your phone number with reasons to email@example.com and a volunteer will contact you is applicable.
