Halfway There Rescue is a Charlotte area pet rescue organization run by a group of dedicated volunteers. We save dogs and cats from over-crowded shelters and help find them loving, happy homes through temporary foster placements and transportation to shelters in others states. Adoption is the loving option; please give one of our available pets a forever home today! Check out Sarah Lewis, our founder, talking about pet adoption on Charlotte Today.
Our mission is to rescue, foster, transport, and find homes for unwanted, abandoned, and abused dogs in the Carolinas. Halfway There Rescue’s goal is to pull at risk pets from over-crowded shelters in North and South Carolina, find them temporary foster homes, transport them to open rescues in other states, and ultimately find them permanent, loving homes.
Halfway There Rescue covers North and South Carolina, but we primarily pull puppies and dogs from shelters in Mecklenburg, York, Lancaster, and Chester counties. Halfway There Rescue works directly with shelters and animal control centers in these areas to pull dogs and cats before they are euthanized. In some circumstances Halfway There may take owner surrenders, but usually we work through the shelter system.
