Saving Lives, One Puppy At A Time - Since 2004

Who are we


We are a Christian based, 501(c)3 non-profit puppy rescue in Cabarrus County, NC

We believe that all animals are God's creatures and we are put on this earth to care for them as Christ cares for us.

We specialize in puppies 12 weeks and younger especially the orphaned and abandoned infant puppies who need to be bottle fed; as well as pregnant dogs and dogs who have recently given birth.

How we got started


In January 2004, while volunteering for another organization, a litter of Australian Shepard puppies were brought in and needed a place to go.

The person who usually took the puppies had just recently had a PARVO outbreak at their location and was unable to take in young unvaccinated puppies.

Bill & Liz took them into their home, bathed them, fed them got them all the medical treatment they needed including shots and found them their very own "FUREVER HOMES".

That was the start of their rescue. Since then they have rescued and found homes for hundreds of abandoned and unwanted puppies and dogs.

The specialty of this rescue is hand raised puppies.
We called them our "bottle babies".  These "babies" for one reason or another do not have a dog mommy to feed them so Bill, Liz, and the volunteers become the surrogate parents. They feed them every 2 to 3 hours round the clock.

We rescue, raise them and help them find forever homes.

Help us to continue saving babies like Sandy.

Our Mission


To provide a safe & loving environment for puppies,
pregnant female dogs and female dogs who have recently given birth. 

Educate people on the importance of spaying & neutering their pets,
making sure their pets are kept current on shots, heart-worm and flea preventative. 


We help people to understand that pets are not disposable. 

They are to be members of the family and not thrown away.

"Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love...
they depart to teach us about loss.  new dog never replaces an old dog;
it merely expands the heart.If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big."
