Lotus aka Lo

Lo is estimated to be 10-12 years old. When she arrived at the shelter it was evident she’d recently had puppies, and that she’d had many litters prior. She lacked basic care for a very long time and her ears are horribly cropped. Soon after we brought her home from the shelter we realized she is also deaf. She just completed her heartworm treatment and is feeling much, much better!

Lo is short for Lotus, but it’s also fitting in the fact that she’s a perfect little low-rider! She weighs 50lbs but it’s all packed into an adorable little body. Lo LOVES all people. She is indifferent to cats and she’s very dog friendly-she’s actually quite playful with other dogs. Her one struggle is separation anxiety in the form of barking when left alone. Because of this, she would be best suited for someone in a house, not an apartment or anywhere with close neighbors. She is calmer when another dog is around rather than being completely alone.

If you’re looking for a sweet, happy and adorably clumsy house hippo-you’ve come to the right place!


Peaches came to us from a rural shelter in SC. She had a horrendous wound on her neck from a severely embedded collar which required immediate medical attention. We hit several bumps in the road during her recovery, but she is finally happy and healthy!

Peaches is around a year old but very puppy-like, probably due to spending the first year of her life on a chain and not experiencing much of the world. She is a VERY quick learner and is eager to please. She is already house trained, crate trained and knows basic commands. Peaches needs a family that can provide her with plenty of exercise and and structure and continue to work on her training and socialization. She absolutely loves to zoom in the yard and splash in the kiddie pool and would make a great partner for adventures!


Clementine was a “final hour” rescue. She was brought to our attention by a wonderful advocate who knew her time was up at the shelter and we pulled her the day she was scheduled to be euthanized.

Clementine is absolutely stunning and ADORES her people. She is in your lap as quickly as she’s able to get there and will gladly stay as long as you’ll allow. She is calm and polite in the house but loves to roll around and be silly in the yard. She is approximately 3 years old, house/crate trained and knows basic commands. She is VERY food motivated and eager to learn.


Nugget is exactly that! This little dude is about 6 years old and weighs in at a whopping 9lbs. He has quite the funny personality – pretty chill, not phased by much and in true Chihuahua form, occasionally sassy.

Nugget is heartworm positive and as a result, he also has a heart murmur. Currently, he is on medication to help with the heart murmur and begin the process of his heartworm treatment. He will see the vet for a re-check in a few weeks and once we have a plan in place for his treatment, he will be available for adoption. The rescue will cover all costs associated with his heartworm treatment as well as his neuter.

Thank you for your interest in adopting!

Please read the FAQs prior to applying.

Additional photos and videos of our adoptable dogs can be found on Facebook and Instagram.

I don’t live in Charlotte. Can I apply? At this time, we do not offer out of area adoptions. Adopters must be in the immediate Charlotte area.

I saw a dog on social media that I’m interested in, but I don’t see them on your site. How do I apply? There is one general application for all animals. They do not need to be listed on the site in order for you to apply. Most of time time, younger puppies will not be listed because they come and go quicker than we can keep up with! We also share a lot of updates, posts from adopters etc. on social media so if an animal is available it will be clearly stated in the post.

What is your adoption process like? Our approval process includes a phone interview, home visit, reference checks and vet reference for any pets currently living in your home. Current pets must be vaccinated, spayed/neutered and current on preventatives. We will contact your vet office to ensure this. If you are a renter, please check with your landlord/leasing office regarding the pet policy, including any breed and weight restrictions. Approved adopters will have the option of scheduling a meet and greet prior to adoption.

I live in an apartment, is that okay? Absolutely! We have some dogs with special requirements but generally speaking, renting/apartment living is not an issue. We will contact your landlord or leasing office to make sure you have permission to have a pet and check on any potential restrictions-breed, weight, pet limit etc.

What is your adoption fee? Our adoption fee is $250 which includes all age appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchip.

What breed is this puppy and how big will it get? Your guess is as good as ours! We typically have minimal information when we take in animals.

I submitted my application, now what? We will always try our best to be in touch with you within one week. We are a very small group of volunteers with families, full time jobs and pets of our own. If you have not heard from us in two weeks time, please check your spam folder to make sure you didn’t miss an email from us and if not, feel free to reach out!
