If you live east of Raleigh, heads up! You’ll often find this group out your way as they are based in Wilson. The Maggie Society Rescue, Rehabilitation, & Education is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless, neglected and abandoned dogs. Though they are based further out, they are one of our regular rescues to hold adoption events at our Cary store so regular customers there may recognize them!
The Maggie Society is a foster based group which means that their dogs live in foster homes with families while they learn how to be upstanding members of the family and get ready for their next chapter. Other volunteers keep busy doing transport drives north up the coast to get dogs to their fur-ever homes with The Maggie Society’s northern rescue partners. In addition to their adoption program, they work to educate the community about responsible pet ownership and help reduce the number of homeless dogs in need.
Say hello to Mako, one of their adoptable dogs!
“Meet Mako, the most resilient and loving boy to land in the middle of a rescue situation. Mako is simply amazing. He was found with a severe leg injury that required amputation but he has not let that slow him down in the least. He gets along beautifully with other pets, especially dogs, and allows their energy to drive his. If they want to play– he’s all in–if they want to chill, he’s right there with them. He has been around cats and was respectful of their space and nonreactive. He didn’t even bark…until another resident goof-ball dog barked….he’s obviously trying to fit in to overcome his handicap. He can navigate a flight of stairs better than his middle-aged foster mom and usually would win in the race up! Mako is a splendid boy with a velvety soft coat. He is working on house manners but will cue his people when he has to go out. Mako is thought to be about a year old, is neutered and vetted as age appropriate. He was a nicely proportioned 37 lbs and is going to be a fabulous addition and inspiration to any family who selects him.”
