Carolina Hearts Aussie Rescue

Durham, North Carolina

Carolina Hearts Aussie Rescue is a volunteer based organization whose purpose is rescue and place herding dogs into forever homes. Herding dogs do not do well in shelters and typically shut down. Their instincts and high intelligence lead them to become fearful and over stimulated in shelter environments. This often makes them seem un-adoptable to shelter staff and these healthy, well-behaved animals are often euthanized without ever having a chance to be on the adoption floor. While they are not double merle focused, they take in a great deal of them and find them wonderful homes.

Second Chance Farm

Our mission is to offer care and a peaceful living environment for abused, physically handicapped, aged or homeless animals.
