SRC is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Rescue Organization with Volunteers in four states. Our SRC Volunteers work diligently to place needy and abused Schnauzers or Honorary Schnauzers in loving adoptive homes. Why not complete your adoption application and give one of them the loving home he or she deserves?
Blossom (SRC#2139) is now being adopted so SRC does not have any available Schnauzers at this time. SRC will post others as they become available and there will be a full write up found on Petfinder or Adopt-a-Pet when another one is available. All our available rescues are fully vetted,
(SRC# 2118) IKE has been fully evaluated now, and his history apparently caused him to be very fearful of most people. It took him months to adjust to his foster family and he is still terrified of large dogs -- he tries to attack them out of fear which could get him maimed or hurt badly. Fortunately his loving foster family works with him to give him confidence. Ike is extremely bonded to his sister (Lorie) and would never survive without her. Both dogs are senoirs and with the time it has taken to get them settled in, the SRC Core Team and his foster family have decided to give them the opportunity to be Hospice Schnauzers. They will not be removed from their current foster family and SRC will assume the financial responsiblity for their care since it would be far too traumatic to ask them to adjust to another family at this stage of their lifetime.
(SRC#2119) LORIE is a sweetheart and has finally adjusted to her foster home. She remains very bonded to Ike, yet she is not as dependent on him as he is dependent on her. Lori does have diabetes and requires 2 shots daily. She gets one at breakfast and one at dinner. These do not bother her and are done just below the skin so they are easily injected. Insulin will be provided for Lorie which will last her more than her first couple of months. Both dogs are on Science Diet Lorie is better with other dogs than Ike is, and was raised with cats so she is good with them also. Sometimes Lorie wears pink bows on those long flowing ears and she gets a lot of attention. People always remark on how strikingly beautiful she is. Their loving mom passed away and their dad went to a nursing home so both dogs suffered a great deal for some time. Lorie has done much better with the adjustment than Ike has, yet we are not certain that Ike would survive if SRC adopted Lorie without him. This is under consideration but right now she is being considered a hospice Schnauzer for Ike's sake.
We went to a high kill shelter to pick up a Mini and Archibald (a little Lhasa Apso was there. His personality was so sweet we could not leave him there to be put down
This precious pup was spayed and fully vetted. He got a new name that was more appropriate for him. His old life was going to be nothing but a memory because his first family was abusive so the memory of them left with the old name and he became TIKI (SRC#1176). Tiki was such a happy pup and he was adopted almost immediately by a loving woman who had loved his breed. Her Lhasa Apso had just crossed the Rainbow Bridge due to old age and she wanted a new companion. Tiki was perfect for Carolyn Folds and they bonded quickly. They were soul mates. Carolyn adopted Tiki on August 15, 2012. Tiki's micro-chip was registered to her and also SRC.
Time went by and all was well. Tiki and Carolyn was so happy together. This was such a perfect adoption. They were bonded and Tiki flourished. SRC heard from Carolyn frequently about their happy life until March 18, 2016 when Tiki was stolen from his loving mom! They were out for a ride and stopped for gas. Carolyn went in to pay for gas and a man grabbed Tiki from the car. Every effort was made to find this adorable little boy but he was not to be found. It appeared that he would never come home again and hope dwindled..........
June 2, 2021 SRC received a call about a small dog found in the middle of a busy highway. An animal lover stopped to save him and took him to a vet to have his chip read but they misread the chip number so the Director of SRC worked with that women to help get this pitiful little dog into a no kill facility. This caring woman spent her entire day caring for Tiki and trying to find his home despite the fact that he was so matted, dirty and smelled to high heaven. She was determined to assure that he did not suffer, go hungry, or get run over. She was not going to just dump him at a kill faciltiy either.
SRC and the woman who found him were able to get Tiki picked up and taken to Atlanta Lineline Animal Project where Allie Harris, the Rescue Coordinator read the chip number again and found the correct number. Allie worked with our Director, Anita C. McGuire to reunite Tiki with his beloved adoptive mom. She was so surprised that at first she could not believe it was really him and then when she was told that yes it was her baby after 5 years she could not wait to get him in her arms again!! Tiki was matted, his nails were overgrown and he had a dirty diaper on. He had been so neglected yet that micro-chip saved him! What a blessing.
By Thursday afternoon, June 3, 2021 Tiki finally came home to his beloved adoptive mom who never gave up hope that he would be in her arms once again. The Lord must have looked after Tiki when he was stolen by horrible people 5 years ago. We can only imagine what he endured during that time. Now he sleeps in his mom's arms at night along with his older brother. Life is sweet once again, thanks to a wonderful animal lover who saved him from being run over in the middle of a busy highway. Had it not been for the fact that Tiki was micro-chipped and registered in his adoptive mom's name he still would not have come back to her, so it is a blessing that they were reunited. Despite the fact Tiki suffered horrible neglect and abuse, he still remembered his home and his toys that had waited for him for 5 years. He loves playing with his balls. A good grooming made him feel more like his old self. His vet will determine if he can have a much needed dental since the neglect and poor diet has caused him to have a 5 - 6 heart murmur. Tiki will get all care possible to assure he is happy and as healthy as possible for his remaining years here on Earth. That chip helped assure this miracle occurred!
Please micro-chip and register your pets. SRC will gladly assist in helping make that happen for anyone interested in micro-chipping their beloved family companions. Contact us thru this website and we will arrange to help you if you have not chipped your pet already. We will send you a micro-chip and once it is inserted we will register it in your name free of charge.

As in any volunteer organization, the efforts of our volunteers are appreciated. We currently need help fostering new rescues. SRC realizes that many of us want to help in some way. Therefore, if you cannot foster at this time, you can "Sponsor a Foster." Your donation is assigned to a specific foster, and you can follow his/her progress. Send a donation of any size ($10, $20, $100)
Your donation can help save the lives of Rescued Schnauzers!
We frequently have rescued dogs come in with severe medical problems that require more treatment than our small adoption donations cover. While our adoption donation requested is often only $350, many dogs come in that require extensive surgeries or veterinarian visits that cost hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. If you would like to help make a difference, please consider making an online, tax-deductible donation here:
Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group. YOU can help save a dog's life with any amount you can give, and your donation is completely tax-deductible.
We thank you, and all the rescue dogs thank you as well!
