Pretty (a boxer, maybe rotti mix) had 14 puppies on Labor Day! They are now about 7.5 weeks old and they are all weaned and ready to be adopted into their furever homes. We think these sweet pups will be about 50 lbs when full grown, but that is just a guess. Some have short tails & some have longer tails !! 8 have been adopted !!

Most of our dogs are IN FOSTER in the *RALEIGH* area, some at Kerr Lake (I-85@ NC/VA border), some in Virginia. Our rescue is NOT a shelter, NONE of the DOGS are in Manson.... this is only our mailing address.

All of our adult dogs are spayed/neutered,micro-chipped, vacinnated & on heartworm, flea & tick preventative. Our dogs are adopted with a contract that they receive follow up vet care, and are kept as house dogs.

WE SAVE MANY HOUNDS..they are NOT good for hunting..they are FAMILY DOGS! They just need a fenced yard to keep them safe. We have FOUR hounds who each have sponsorship toward their adoption fees.Newell, & .THREE Seniors: Jade, June Bug, & Rudolph

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 one...as 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: www.wcanimalark.petfinder.com - nice shelter in Warrenton, NC; www.vance.petfinder.com 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: spaycatdog@embarqmail.com . We accept donations at our adoption events. (Food, money, puppy pens)

Adopt your new best friend from a rescue or a shelter, get them spayed or neutered between the ages of 4 and 6 months! Saving Lives in Raleigh 919-772-0211 and low-cost spay/neuter... PAL 804-359-6369--prevent a liter 3421 W. Cary St..Richmond, Va 23231
