Hope Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming dogs in the Triangle region of North Carolina. We promote compassionate and humane treatment of all animals while focusing our efforts on homeless and at-risk dogs in our home state.

We do not receive funding from city, state, or federal government. We rely solely on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to provide quality services to the community. Your donations directly support programs to help animals in need.

Please consider volunteering, collecting items for our wish list, or making a lifesaving donation.

Our Mission

The Mission of Hope Animal Rescue is to protect and find good homes for abandoned and neglected dogs, and provide medical services for companion animals. We advocate for dogs and their welfare while cultivating outreach initiatives to further the bond between people and pets.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to create a community where 100% of adoptable dogs find loving homes and where no dog will be euthanized because of pet overpopulation.
