Volunteer at Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation

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 is to save animals from euthanasia in the Haywood County Animal Shelter, because when we 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, it is our goal to make sure they are able to maintain that record. We now have more hard-to-place and longer term animals in our care, and we provide assistance to the shelter with on-site adoptions.
