Meet Garuda

This litter of Linux distros will take over your heart and keep it safe from hackers.

With a guesstimated birthdate of April 2021, these sweet babies were born in an abandoned building. They are now in a safe place, with plenty to eat and drink so are beginning to realize that people are a wonderful resource. After a week of care they now clamor for attention and love to be picked up for snuggles.

Garuda loves playing with the other dogs in her foster pack. She doesn't vocalize much, unless the other dogs are barking. Garuda loves people and will gaze longingly at her foster family for pets. She also loves to explore and, although still a little nervous in cars, enjoys going to new places for adventures.

Garuda is leash-savvy but will pull strongly in the morning for her potty break. She is reliably house-trained when kept on a regular schedule (currently 2 hours). As an adult, Garuda will be comfy in a 42" crate so she can sprawl. She ignores the cats in her foster home.


April 2020: We are not holding public adoption events until further notice. Qualified families are being invited to appointments to meet specific dogs. There are currently no opportunities to view multiple dogs and adoption events aren't being held at Tractor Supply in Lenoir.

Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. Requirement is a minimum three year vet history documenting current / previous pets are spayed / neutered, kept up to date on core vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention. We suggest first time pet owners without a vet history look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience. Other rescues or your local government-run animal control agency may have different adoption requirements.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations plus spay / neuter if using our local low-cost spay/neuter clinic (overnight stay required) and surgery occurs as agreed upon in the adoption contract. Convenience fee equal to refundable spay/neuter deposit may be required if, using our veterinarian or same-day surgery, service is scheduled through our organization. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies. Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete. Fees are required in cash. For more information on our organization, our website is
