Spirit Canine Rescue - saving dogs in Alamance County

Spirit Canine Rescue was born from the work of a friends group for a rural North Carolina shelter. The Friends of Alamance County, NC Dogs is a group dedicated to improving the plight of dogs in Alamance County and that's where the story of Spirit Canine Rescue began with a puppy named Spirit.

Spirit was found by a good Samaritan wandering the streets of Burlington. He was incredibly emaciated and too weak to even lift his head. His finder got him to the vet and the entire community came together to help Spirit. His foster family ended up falling in love and adopted him after just a couple months. So many people made donations to help with Spirit's extensive medical care; it was a group effort to help him overcome the circumstances he was found in.

From Spirit's ordeal, Spirit Canine Rescue was born! They utilize foster homes to save as many dogs as they can.

One of their current pups is Papa the Model (pictured at the right)! He is a middle-aged guy who would love to find his perfect match. He's described as very friendly and seems like a smartie! Papa loves car rides, playing dress up, people, and running around with a ball. Though he can be playful, he's also able to chill and relax.
