"Saving just one dog won't change the world....but surely the world will change for that one dog." - Author Unknown

Welcome to the website for Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas! (SRC)

Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization -- all of our tax deductible adoption donations go back into helping care for other rescues. We are a group of volunteers within North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Eastern Tennessee, and Northern Georgia whose sole purpose is to rescue and secure loving, permanent homes for displaced Miniature, Standard, Giant Schnauzers, and occasionally “Endangered Honorary Schnauzers”.

SRC’s worthy mission is to assure that each rescued canine in our care will have  a happy and healthy life. Ours is the first step to assuring this happens! As soon as this needy canine comes into our custody this rescued dog will be examined by one of our professional SRC veterinarians who will give administer a medical examination of this dog which includes but is not necessarily limited to heart-worm and fecal testing, de-worming, updating of necessary vaccinations, spay/neuter if not already done, micro-chipping and any other medical procedure which our approved vet feels is required to assure this rescue’s health at that time. Once this dog is cleared by our SRC approved vet, then it is placed in a loving SRC foster home for a minimum of two weeks so that their foster parent will be able to adequately evaluate the demeanor and needs of this dog now in their care. This way the foster parent is able to give very valuable information to the approved adoptive parent about their future family companion in order to assure the upcoming adoption day will be a happy and successful one!  Adoption is a life-time commitment.  We at SRC strive to match our rescued canines and adoptive parents as closely as possible so both SRC rescued dog and its permanent family will be very happy together for the remainder of their lives together.

If you would like to request an Adoption Application, visit our Application Download page.  FIRST PLEASE DONATE $5.00 to have your Adoption Application processed.  See the DONATE  BUTTON BELOW.  It is tax deductible and will be used for the medical needs of incoming rescues.

The Faces of Rescue

“Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
   All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
   I'd like to open my baggage,
   Lest I forget,
   There is so much to carry -
   So much to regret.

   Hmmm...Yes, there it is, right on the top,
   Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
   And underneath hide Fear and Shame.
   As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -
   I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.

   I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
   But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.
   Will you add to my baggage?
   Will you help me unpack?
   Or will you look at my things -
   And take me right back?

   Do you have the time to help me unpack?
   To put away my baggage, to never repack?
   I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
   But I do come with baggage -
   Will you still want me?
