About Our rescue

WesternNCSR is a foster based rescue. All of our fur babies are housed in real homes and treated as real members of the family.  We do not adopt a dog out until he/she is fully examined by a licensed vet, so please support our efforts by donating.  Know that when your ready to adopt, we can give you the best information we have on how to make this adoption a forever one.   Once you complete an application, one of our board members will reach out to you and set up a time to discuss the process with you, which will include a home visit ahead of time, and again when you are ready to adopt.   All adoptions include a 2 week introduction period.  If at any time during that period you decide this is not a good match, you return the dog to us and we return your adoption fee.
Our adoption fees are

Puppies up to 1 year $550
1-3 $450
4-6 $350
6-8 $250
Over 8 years $175

Saving Animals & Finding Homes

Our History

Western North Carolina Sheltie Rescue was established in 2023 with seasoned sheltie volunteers with over 40 years experience between our founding members, in loving, rescuing, and adopting dogs.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit qualified to receive tax deductible donations, bequests, devises, transfers or gifts.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Western North Carolina Sheltie Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foster based rescue in Western North Carolina. We serve North and South Carolina and upper Georgia as well as parts of Eastern Tennessee when needed.  We will also help Sheltie mixes and other herding dogs if the need arises by providing safe compassionate homes to them when they find themselves homeless.  WesternNCSR will do everything in its power to prevent cruelty, overpopulation and euthanization of these animals.  We promise to help any dog in our care to have a final home that is best suited for the circumstances of that dog.
