Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Chauncey and I was born on Mother's Day to my mom, Keegan who is a Border Collie. I am probably Border Collie/Beagle mix. I am very energetic and sweet.I am currently being fostered with my brother, Rayne. We would love if you would consider both of us.. I love to puppy bow and bounce all over the yard and the house. I am very curious. My foster mom thinks that both Rayne and myself are very smart. We would love a home with a doggie door where we can come and go as we please. We are very well behaved and love to be in the middle of things. I will need a traditional fenced yard in my new home because I love to explore and run through the yard. I am very motivated by treats and will be easily trained. My brother and I have a high prey drive so we cannot go to a home with small animalsIf interested in adopting us, please complete an application at www.safeanimalhaven.org WE FINALIZE EVERY ADOPTION WITH A HOME VISIT THEREFORE POTENTIAL HOMES MUST BE WITHIN A HOURS DRIVE TIME OF CHARLOTTE NC.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: Matthews, NC
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). My name is Wilbur and I have a story to tell. I was lost in Cleveland County and the nice animal control officer picked me up and took me to the shelter just in time because it was getting cold outside. After a week my stay at the crowded shelter was coming to an end, but a volunteer saw that I needed to get out and she saved me. My skin was really itchy from fleas, my eyes,ears, and paws were infected and I didn't feel good, but I was so happy to be inside in a home that I didn't let it show. I still wagged my tail and was happy to meet my fosters mom's dogs and cat. My foster mom is giving me medicine and warm bathes to soothe my skin. I am an easy going, well mannered 9 year old chihuahua. I don't mind the crate, but I prefer to follow my foster mom around the house and sleep on the fluffy dog bed. I am really excited that my rescue is looking to find me a forever home so I won't ever be lost without a family again.If interested in giving Wilbur a home, please complete an application at www.safeanimalhaven.org.

      Posted Breed: Terrier (short coat). Hi, my name is Magic and I am approximately one and half years old. I am a terrier mix who had a rough start in life! I came to S.A.F.E. with a skin condition but that cleared up with good food. I am adjusting to being a part of a family due to my previous life where I did not receive a lot of attention. I love people and other dogs but I am very skittish at this time. I am making baby steps to enjoying my new life and my new surroundings. I am very playful with the other dogs in the home and I will seek attention from my foster family but little things still startle and scare me. S.A.F.E.has placed me in their Guardian Angel Program until I am ready for a forever family. The Guardian Angel Program supports dogs like me who are not quite ready for a forever home but we are working on our issues. You can sponsor me by sending donations to S.A.F.E. Animal Haven, PO Box 3206, Matthews, NC 28106 or use PayPal at www.safeanimalhaven.org. Make sure my name is on the donation! Thank you!

      Age: Young
      Location: Matthews, NC
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my is Lulu and I am a 9 month old, 26 lb., American Staffordshire terrier mix, who was picked up as a stray, and landed in CharMeck ACC. A shelter volunteer who saw me trembling in the back of her kennel, took one look at my sad, pleading eyes, and knew she had to help me. After spending a few days hunkered down in a dog bed in the volunteer's laundry room, I ventured out, only to discover Sasha, the volunteer's resident Westie/Maltese mix. It was love at first sight! It seems that, more than anything else, Lulu loves other dogs -- of all shapes and sizes -- she literally lights up around them. However, Lulu is still quite timid and scared with people, and needs a patient adopter, to help complete her transition from cast off stray, to loving member of a family- one that will include doggie playmates! Will you be the one to make Lulu's dreams come true? If interested in making Lulu a part of your family please complete an application at www.safeanimalhaven.org. Thank you!

      Location: Matthews, NC
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed. 10/9/11 Dan continues to make strides. He still prefers to be left alone but is starting to let us pet him. He knows his job is to keep the yard safe from predators like the UPS man and the squirrels. Of course if anyone came near him he would tuck his tail and run away. He is crate trained but loves being loss in the house curled up on a dog bed or couch if available. Dan will need a fenced in yard to make him feel safe. He promises he will keep the yard safe for you as well. Dan has been in foster care for several years and deserves to have someone give him a chance. 6/22/11 - Dan is doing better. He is a handsome dog that is still leery of people. He will approach humans on his own terms. He is not trusting of new humans. He just needs someone to give him a chance and will be a great dog. He loves being in the house, is housebroken and not a chewer. He is crate trained and gets along with other dogs. He will protect your yard from pesky squirrels and other critters that will come near your fence. If you have room in your heart and patience for earning Dan's trust then he will learn to love you back. Dan will require a traditional fenced in yard. 8/27/10 Dan continues to be leery of humans. He is doing well in his foster home but prefers t keep his distance from humans. He will play with all of the dogs and does well. He is looking for a special family that will work with him to feel comfortable with them. 1/19/09 Dan is still looking for a forever home. He is a sweet dog but is still a bit afraid of people but has come a long way. He loves to be in the house with the humans. He will curl up on a dog bed and take the world in as it passes him. He will now come over and give kisses to a human's hand. But he still needs to do things on his time. He will not let you catch him when he is out but will come in when you ask. He would love to a someone who would walk him on a leash then bring him in the house to relax. If outside he works hard as a guard dog. You will know if someone is coming or a squirrel decides to pass by. He says he is just doing his job protecting everyone in the house. His foster home feels safer with him in it. 8/28/08 I am still looking for a home to love me. I am a sweet dog but needs time to learn to trust people. I am great with other dogs. Update 8/18/07 - I am coming out of my shell a little bit. I love being in the house with people. I still love to play with the other dogs as well. My sister Ann and I were wondering through a neighborhood. We were scared. The fleas and ticks covered our body were driving us crazy. A great family with kids were able to coax us into their backyard with food. We were skinny and hunger. They got the fleas and ticks off of us and w were very grateful. I am the more timid one. I am sweet but I am a bit afraid of people. I love other dogs and now feel safe enough to play. I love Ann but will play with others if she is busy. If you adopt me you will need to realize I will need to learn to trust you. I love kids if they are nice to me. I will make a great friend if you dare to take a chance on me.

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Rufus is an older gentleman, and has perhaps slowed down a bit---making him the perfect gently-paced walking partner. Rufus loves to follow his beagle nose, get treats, and have his ears rubbed. We are utterly and completely in love with this boy. He will initially do his little beagle howl at you for attention but this boy is just too precious. He loves belly rubs, loves to roll on his back on the grass and is the biggest snuggle bunny. He is also very smart (he did incredible at agility), walks well on leash, appears to get along with other dogs and house trained. He is a true gem with the best personality ever. Since he is not a young gun anymore, he will be in our opinion the most easy going companion you could ask for. He so deserves a loving family where he will be spoiled rotten for the rest of his life. Would you give him a chance and come and meet him? We think you will love him as much as we do.
