Welcome to North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue

We are a private, donation funded, no kill rescue. Our mission is to help end pet overpopulation, abandonment and neglect. We provide care and find homes for dogs of any breed, age, or medical need. We have found homes for over 3,000 dogs in the last 13 years! We hope to have this number keep growing as we strive to save these sweet souls. Thank you for your support, we couldn't do what we do without it.







Join us at Galway Hooker at 17044 Kenton Dr in Cornelius from 4-8pm on Wednesday April 23rd and Thursday April 24th for a HUGE multi-rescue jewelry party!!

A children’s book about NMAR’s very own Ambassadog has been published!!!!  Written by our long-time volunteer (a.k.a. Gunny’s foster mom turned adopted mom) this book is geared towards children in or around the 4th grade.  Gunny’s strong presence in a local elementary school, and huge impact on the lives of the kids he met, led to this effort to reach more kids than Gunny could ever possibly meet in person.

Please check it out and share the provided (official) link in any way you can.  Maybe you could consider ordering a copy for your local elementary school library or public library?  ***Please note:  although you may be able to find this book on other sites, using the official link gets the most money to Gunny and his rescued Pack members, as opposed to third party websites.
