HWHCR started as a transport for out-of-state rescues adopting canines from our local shelter. We began as an all-breed rescue and have now become a husky/malamute only rescue. We gradually became a full-time shelter, providing housing, transport to local veterinarians for medical care, and finally finding homes for the dogs in our care, and are, now, a North Carolina State licensed shelter as well as a 501c3 organization.
All our dogs are rescued from a shelter, are given the extra veterinary care that is needed to provide the new family with a healthy pet. Each dog receives any additional vaccines, is spayed/neutered, tested (and treated, if necessary) for heartworms and lyme disease, and received heartworm and flea/tick prevention. Each dog is kept at HWHCR and observed daily, so that as much detail about the dog can be given to the new owners.
The new family is welcomed to spend as much time, as necessary, with their new pet, before taking it home. They are encouraged to bring their whole family, children and other dogs to the visit. HWHCR is open, by appointment, seven days a week, mornings, afternoons and early evenings. The adoption process is begun with a personal conversation/interview by phone,(required) followed by a visit to our facility. Rehoming fees are $400. A medical record is included with the adoption package. We accept cash, credit/debit cards, but, sorry, no checks. Donations are also needed to help with heartworm treatments or other vet care.
