If the above embedded frame is not working (be sure to
scroll down using the bar to the right of their pictures
to see all of them!), you may view pictures and
information about our available dogs on Petfinder by
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.

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
and a volunteer will contact you is applicable.
