Who We Are
We started doing rescue years ago when we lost our first Old English Sheepdog Mandy. She was my inspiration and is my angel. We strive to find each
pup that comes here the perfect home. Some have been abused or neglected... some too big or too wild, others old and sick. We often don't know their past
but we sure can promise them a better future!
Adopting a Friend
We have an adoption fee that includes all vaccines, spay/neuter and heartworm testing. This fee is determined on a case by case basis. If a dog tests
positive for heartworms, we will treat the dog before he/she is adopted. IMPORTANT: Carolinas OES Rescue will not ship dogs. Carolinas OES Rescue wants
each and every adoption to last a lifetime this time around. Dogs are NOT placed in homes on a first come, first serve basis. Instead, they are carefully
matched with a family that can best fulfill the individual dog's needs. It has to be a match for both dog and family in order to accomplish this goal.
* We must have your completed
Adoption Application on file before we can discuss a dog.

any dog is a commitment meant to last
the lifetime of the dog. The average Old
English Sheepdog lives 12 years so it
isn't a decision to be taken lightly. If
you aren't quite ready to adopt or
foster an Old English Sheepdog but would
still like to help a dog in trouble, you
might consider a donation. The
veterinary care required to get an Old
English Sheepdog ready for adoption can
be expensive and many times adoption
fees don't cover all the required care.
Lack of funding and good foster homes
are often the two biggest reasons
rescues have to turn a dog away.
Donations simply make it possible for us
to help and place more homeless dogs.
Have you ever considered fostering?
Excellent foster homes allow Carolinas Old English
Sheepdog Rescue to save more dogs in
need. These wonderful individuals and
families provide a safe and loving place
for a dog to stay until their new family
finds them. The time, love and patience
invested by fosters helps to begin the
transformation of an unwanted, neglected
or abused Old English Sheepdog into a
wonderful companion for some lucky
family. If you think you're one of these
special people and would like to learn
more about fostering an OES, please
contact us. You will be helping to save
maybe one more dog that might not have
otherwise had a chance. It can be a very

We would love for
you to be part of our team! Everyone has
a talent they can offer to help homeless
Old English Sheepdogs. Whether donating
a service or skill for one hour per
month to fostering a homeless dog, each
and every volunteer is an important part
of our system. If you can help, please
take a few moments to complete our
online application and tell us in what
area you have an interest. If you have
something to offer that is not on our
list, PLEASE tell us about it! By each
of us giving just a little of ourselves
and working together we can make more
Old English Sheepdog rescues possible.
Please complete our Volunteer
Application if interested.
