What We Do

What Does Change a Life Dog Rescue Do?

Change a Life Dog Rescue is a foster based all-breed rescue that specializes in working and herding dogs. Everyday thousands of good healthy dogs, that would make wonderful family members, die or are euthanized because there is no one there to help them.

Our Mission is to save dogs that are in life threatening situations whether it is due to an overcrowded shelter, abandonment, abuse or neglect. We believe that “we are not a rescue”, but a group of dedicated committed volunteers that bring together dogs and people as families.

This is Sassy (Senior hound mix) after she was unceremoniously dumped at a rural North Carolina shelter. The “Owner” walked in and said, I don’t want her any more and turned around and walked out.
