Our Mission

Piedmont Animal Rescue is now and Adoption Partner with Petco Foundation!



Piedmont Animal Rescue started as an idea in the mind of our Founder and Executive Director Jason Benge.  Jason most recently served as the Dog Coordinator for Humane Society of Iredell, now Lake Norman Humane.  He made his start in the rescue world over 10 years ago as a Cat Foster for the Iredell County Humane Society.  About 2 years ago in 2015 he and is family started fostering dogs for the Humane Society of Iredell and in January of 2016 was asked to become the Dog Coordinator for the organization.  He took this job very seriously and rescued over 500 dogs in 2016.  He was part of a successful team that rescued and rehomed 879 animals in 2016.

Adoption Policy

Adopting a friend is easy and painless from Piedmont Animal Rescue.  You MUST go to www.piedmontanimalrescue.com and apply online prior to setting up special Meet and Greet.  Upon your application being approved we will set up a meeting with you and your potential new family member.  Please keep in mind that even though you have an approved application, Piedmont Animal Rescue reserves the right to not proceed with the adoption during the meeting if we fell that it is not the best fit for the adopters or the pet.


To be approved for a pet PAR conducts a Veterinary Check on current pets, landlord check if you rent, and we reserve the right to perform a home inspection as well.  During the vet check we look for Current vaccintations, heartworm preventitaves, and spayed/neutered pets.
