RACE-ing to save companion pets!
We are always looking for individuals or families to foster dogs, however when there is a hoarding situation or puppy mill bust, the need is even greater. Subscribe to our facebook page to know when puppy mill or hoarding situations are going on.
If you're interested in fostering and aren't sure what's involved, check out our "What Is Fostering?" page to learn more about it and if interested, fill out the volunteer/foster application in our "Forms and Resources" page. (links below)
IVY - Hi there, my name is Ivy and I am a super sweet 5 year old Poodle and I've discovered surfing! I recently met Dan from Blind Dogs Surfboards at the Sunset Beach market.
Dan needed a model for Blind Dog Surfboards and guess what, I'm blind!!!
I get to be his model for his beautiful handmade surfboards!
I can only be a model for Blind Dogs Surfboards for a little while longer though. You see, I've been blind for four years but will get my vision restored in one eye on August 8 when the cataracts are removed!
I'm a true lap dog. I will be available for adoption through RACE when my surgery has been completed and vision restored.
You can help me by attending the wine tasting on August 2, 5–7 p.m. at Seaside Wine & Gourmet. Proceeds from the wine tasting will be donated to “Ivy’s eyes” fund.
If you're interested in Ivy, please fill out an application in our forms and resources section. http://raceshelter.org/forms-and-resources
Cheri McLain founded Rescue Animals Community Effort, Inc. (RACE) in the spring of 2010. The initial mission was to contract the services of the county animal shelter to help companion animals live a quality life in Brunswick county, North Carolina.
RACE has developed into an organization that also implements programs to educate children and adults on proper care and responsibility for companion animals. Additionally, RACE teaches awareness to the community about animal issues that impact society as a whole.
RACE is an all volunteer and foster network that is fueled by community interest. RACE has aided in reducing euthanasia in the community by accepting dogs in their adoption program and finding them new homes and by spaying and neutering feral cats in the area.
One of the easiest ways to support RACE is to use the link below every time you shop on Amazon.
Please remember RACE this year when you may be looking for a tax deduction. Our vet bills far exceed our adoption fees. We continue to operate because of your generosity. RACE has no paid employees, so you can be assured that your donation is applied directly toward animal care and rehabilitation.
Thank you for your support!
You can donate to RACE using our PayPal Me link here:
If you are paying an adoption fee through paypal, please add $9.00 in addition to the $200 fee to cover the PayPal fee. Thank you.
Visit us to see our available pets at these events. You can be pre-qualified prior to an event if you would like to be able to leave with your new pet. Complete an application (in the forms section) to begin the process.
