Adopt Your Next
Please help these Rescued & Rehabilitated Dogs that have been abused, forgotten or discarded & provide them with a safe home, a life of comfort & love.
Many of these dogs have been abandoned on properties or have been in shelters for months.
Together we can make this world a better place for them & surround them with love...one rescue dog at a time.
Thank you for your support!
Hi! 🐾 My name is Karma. 🐶
I am looking for a Forever Family to take me home!
I'm a beautiful 3-4 year old Lab mix, weighing about 75 pounds. I'm mostly white with pretty tan speckles and spots. (We don't know what she's mixed with, possibly something like a Great Pyrenees.). I'm affectionate and playful. I'm a big, happy girl and will do best with experienced dog owners in a home without small children, cats or small dogs. I will sit for my food and am happy to gently take treats. I'm strong and active--I'd love to be an exercise/hiking companion. I get excited when I'm first taken out on a leash and pull more than I should, but with routine and reinforcement, I settle down and should improve quickly.
I enjoy playing with my current foster-brother and grew up with a Lab-brother, so I'd like a playmate in my new home as well, but would do best with a dog who does not want to be the boss. Basically, I'm the kind of dog who's pretty confident because I'm large, so I approach other pets with curiosity and eagerness to play, but if they react negatively to me, I will respond in kind. I've always had a companion dog though, so I'd love to have a brother who is playful and easy going. Mostly, I'm just a big puppy who wants to play! I was house trained before I was taken to the animal shelter, but it's been a few months, so I may need some help to adjust to a new home and routine. I am good with kids, but I'd recommend a home with older kids just due to my size.
Despite having been beloved pets, I and another family dog were surrendered to a county kill shelter when the family's circumstances changed. The shelter was full and they were at risk, so the Humane Society of Wilkes (HSOW) pulled us into their foster program. My "brother," a purebred Lab, was adopted quickly, but I am still waiting for my forever home.
I am heart worm negative, up-to-date on vaccines, and spayed. Feel free to contact her foster home if you have questions at email@example.com. A home with a large physically fenced-in yard is preferred. To apply to adopt Karma, please fill out an application here: https://humanesocietyofwilkes.org/adopt/application/ Take care to fill in all the required fields, use "NA" as needed. (In some listings, Karma is called Mazie. We didn't find out her original name until after we put her in the database. She responds best to Karma.) The HSOW does not transport or ship dogs, so interested adopters must be willing to come to northwestern NC to meet me. Thank you!
Hi! 🐾 My name is Legend. 🐶
I am looking for a Forever Family to take me home!
I'm one of the coolest Dogs you will ever meet. I LOVE people & will lean on you for days for strokes & massages. I know how to sit & whenever you get still & I'm not sure what you want, I sit down & wait for a tasty treat. My Shelter Family loves to brag about how smart I am, how much I love children & how I zoom around the corral when we go outside. My favorite volunteer takes me on really long walks in the woods, let's me go slow & follow my extra special hound nose. I like other dogs, but I'm a young, big boy so the staff & volunteers are helping me learn to regulate my excitement a little bit when I see another dog on a walk. If you come visit me, please understand that I am super friendly & the stress of being alone a lot in the shelter makes be bouncy & talkative sometimes. I am hoping for a home where my humans will be my best friends, set up a routine to help me feel secure, include me in lots of family activities and use some patterns & games to help me trust that I can count on you. I am young, smart, social, have a crazy good nose & really want a person who will participate in a dog sport with me, such as K9 Nose work, mantrailing, search & rescue or something fun like that. Come meet me!
P.S. The Trainer at the Shelter donates 2 free sessions to set us doggoes and our new humans up for a successful life together!
Hi! 🐾 My name is Cameron. 🐶
I'm a young, playful, beautiful American Bulldog boy.
I am very loyal and a great companion.
I am a rare Albino Pup and am unique and exotic looking.
My coloring makes me beautiful and inspiring!
I am friendly and affectionate to my hoomans, but have a hard time socializing with other dogs due to my visual acuity when exposed to bright light. So it's best I am the only fur baby for a home.
My skin is very delicate and lacks pigment and needs protection against ultraviolet rays. I have to stay out of the dirt and direct sunlight because of my sensitive skin. I prefer the nice, cool shade of a palm tree or being indoors snuggling with you when it's hot outside. Early mornings or evenings are the best times for walking with me or playtime when the rays of the sun are not as harmful.
I eat special food with no grains and a good balanced diet.
I have vitamins and medicine for my allergies.
I really just want to be loved. Once I know you, I love you fiercely. I want a home where I feel safe and loved and where there is structure and a daily routine I can get used to.
I will follow you around wagging my tail and asking for attention.
I can’t wait to meet you!
Hi! 🐾 My name is Mermaid. 🐶
Five-year-old Marie (ID 632376) aka Mermaid is ready to make a splash with you. She might not be a real mermaid, but this girl loves to play and explore. An owner with a yard would be a great match. She is a high-energy dog so she would do best in a home with no small children and she prefers to be the only pet. Want to see if she is a good fit for your family? Marie is available for a sleepover at your house. To meet her or any other pet, complete the pre-adoption application on the website www.humanebroward.com and then stop by. The Humane Society of Broward County opens daily at 11 AM. If you have questions, call 954-989-3977 ext. 6. Thanks to our friends at J.R. Dunn Jewelers her adoption fee has been sponsored - she might be the perfect gem for you.
