This year we have added Anson County NC animal shelter to our partner shelter program.  We will be helping to save animals in the community as well as the shelter.  We have also started a targeted community spay program to help the influx of puppies and kittens in need in the community.
Please make a donation to help us with this effort.

Help the Rescue
Where Hope Lives Animal Recue helps animals in rural county run shelters and search to find them rescue or forever homes. Our focus is on helping to create caring compassionate communities committed to change for the animals through awareness, education and volunteering. We strive to rescue and find quality, fitting homes for as many animals from the rural shelters as possible. We also work with the communities to help provide low cost spay and neuter programs to assist in limiting the number of unwanted pets that fill up the shelters and all to often are put down before a forever home can be located!

Please help us in our mission by shopping our online Market. Sales proceeds will help rescue and provide medical care to more animals to make their way into a forever home and to help out low cost spay and neuter programs continue.

You can also make a donation to the rescue directly if you would like. We are a 501(c)3 charity, donations are tax deductible within the limits of the law.
