Our fur-kids are very precious to us and our belief is that they should be treated as one of the family, fur-ever!

All animals are fostered in the Conover (Hickory), NC area unless stated otherwise in their bio. Visits are welcome once we have a completed application on file.

To finalize your adoption, a home visit, vet and personal references are required. We strive to complete all of this quickly since we know how anxious you are to bring your new lifetime companion into your heart and home.

Who We Are

We're a small rescue accepting small & toy breed dogs from shelters, strays, and owners who find themselves no longer able or who no longer care to tend to the needs of their companion.

All our dogs are spayed or neutered, heartworm tested (if over 6 months), up to date on their vaccinations, dewormed, crate trained, and started on their housebreaking skills.

Any necessary dental cleanings and extractions are done while they are in foster care. We want our furry friends to go home medically sound and ready for all the love and attention you can relish on them. All adult males are sent home with a belly band (male wrap) to ensure they understand your household rules before an accident occurs.

All our fur-kids are adopted to loving homes who know the true meaning of lifetime companion.

Donate a Bed Our dogs love to sleep on Kuranda Dog beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda dog bed.

Adopting a friend

The first step in adopting a companion from SCRATCH is to complete the on-line adoption application.
