Cassy **FEATURED DOG** CASSY & her pups!
Cassy and her 5 puppies were rescued from a high kill shelter in their last hours. Cassy was such a good mamma to her pups, and now they are all ready for their furever homes.

**ACE ~ Mr Personality...has lived his whole life in a kennel. He is 2.5 years old. For the past 10 months, he's been at my home. He gets to run FREE morning & night because, when he found a way 'out', he never left our big yard. He would jump on the back of the dog house and go right back in the kennel on his own. I fixed the place and I let him out. He just seems to want to be with me, but doesn't know how to be still. I wish I was outside more to have him just be my buddy outside. I am looking for a different type home/family for him...please let me know if he might be a good fit for you.

Welcome to the place where all dogs are loved!
Love Mutts Rescue was founded to provide a group of people the 'avenue' to rescue animals from shelters. These shelters, and anyone who turns over a stray, can depend on these animals getting the proper vetting needed, proper fostering to care for them until adopted, and places to have adoption events so the rescue & the rescued could interact w/ potential homes. We rely on volunteers to open their homes to foster, which is the only 'limiting' factor to save more.
The story of the starfish is our "motto"...
IT matters to THIS we strive to save more of these 'voiceless' creatures.
Hebrews 13:2. "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels"
Love Mutts, since Aug. 1st, 2010--has placed over 2,000 dogs (& kitties) !
The founder, Marlianne Midyette, has been rescuing dogs/cats for 7+ years. With the help of a small 'village' of volunteers, she has overseen 4,500 dogs saved and placed (plus over 140 cats)!

Look for animals on these sites, too: - nice shelter in Warrenton, NC; shelter in Henderson, NC. There are many groups on FACEBOOK which serve the county shelters - there are so many dogs, puppies, cats, kittens available in shelters! Please adopt a shelter pet or rescue!

We have our rescues in foster homes. If you are interested in fostering and live in our area, please email: . We accept donations at our adoption events. (Food, money, puppy pens)
