Adoptions will be handled by appointment.

We are closed to the general public, will update you if there are any changes. Adoptions will be handled via appointments. With the continued spread of the COVID-19 and the advisory to limit travel and contact we feel this is the best course of action at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience but it is a matter of safety for the public and our volunteers. We will still be there cleaning and caring for the animals. Remember wash those hands, practice good personal and environmental hygiene.

Rainbow Animal Rescue NC is a no-kill rescue that takes animals from county stray dog pounds, and homes that can no longer look after them. The dogs stay in foster homes around the Roanoke Rapids area or at our new Animal Rescue and Adoption Center looked after by our volunteers based in North Eastern NC, until they find a suitable home.

If you can home, foster or move these pets to another rescue please e-mail: for information about the dogs

If you would like to foster a dog or cat (give it a temporary home) please click here to fill out our Foster Home Application form.

Please email us to schedule a time to meet your newest family member. If you would like to meet more than one pet when you visit, this can be arranged.
