Save A Mutt Kennel-VA


we do not have a physical location where we keep our adoptable pets for public viewing! All our pets are fostered in NC in private individual foster homes. If you wish to visit with a pet we must have a PRIOR approved adoption application. We will then set up an appointment for you to visit with the pet at the place of our Foster's choosing. We have to be respectful of our Foster's time and privacy.

90% of our rescue dogs and cats come from area kill shelters. Kill shelters are the shelters that euthanize dogs/cats if they are not adopted. In our area the normal hold time is 7 days. Some shelters have a shorter waiting time than that. If an animal has not been adopted at the end of the allotted wait time, then the animal dies. In the area kill shelters animals are put to sleep by using "
Gas Chambers", "Heart Stick Method", or "Lethal Injection". It really is time for people to stop turning a "blind eye" to what really happens to the shelter animals. The sad truth is that most of our southern shelters are over crowded because of the fact that people do not take responsibility for their pets. The number one thing that would make a big difference is spay/neuter. If more people stepped up to the plate to do the right thing by their pet and have them fixed, then millions of animals would not have to die in the horrible shelters all over the US. That is why we implement spay and neuter for our rescue animals.

 Do you need help with re-homing a litter of pups? We can take any breed of pups or mixes up to 12 weeks old. In return for taking the pups to re-home in our placement program, we can help spay your mom dog. That way you won't have to worry about pups in the future. Plus, your female dog will be much healthier and happier in the long run if she is spayed. We make sure that all the dogs that leave our kennel are spayed or neutered. With that being said all your pups will have the same RESPONSIBLE service provided for them.
