Donate & Save a Pet



Visit with our pets ready for adoption. Come meet your perfect match today!



You can help animals that we would otherwise not be able to rescue.



Without fostering, there can be no rescue. Every year we save the lives of over 500 pets.



Every little bit counts! Your generous donation helps animals most in need.


Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation

Sarge’s original mission was to save animals from euthanasia in the Haywood County Animal Shelter, because when they started, more than 50 animals per week were being put down because of lack of space. Now that the Haywood County Animal Shelter has achieved no-kill status, Sarge's has now branched out to helping homeless dogs and cats of Western North Carolina.
