PARTNERS! Canines works to End the Euthanasia of Adoptable Dogs and Puppies in the South!

Animals Saved in 2022: 500

(continued Covid impact - Shelters FULL

Animals Saved in 2021: 445

Intake Numbers of Dogs and Puppies in rural Southern shelters is extremely high. Many times puppies and highly adoptable dogs are being euthanized due to lack of space. We help shelters change their intake policies, promote spay/neuter in communities and find ways to rescue the majority of adoptable dogs and puppies in high kill shelters.


PARTNERS! Canines began in 2007 and became a registered 501c3 non-profit organization in 2009, so all of your donations are tax deductible.  All proceeds raised go toward transferring great (friendly, healthy, non-aggressive) but unadopted dogs and puppies from high kill shelters primarily in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, to our partner organizations in the Northeast where they are spayed/neutered and held until they are adopted. Most of these dogs and puppies are adopted in days.


Your donations go to help cover costs such as veterinarian checks before transport, medical procedures, transport expenses, food, shelter and some rehab for pups as they await transport.  Partners! Canines, relies on your donations, as well as our fundraising activities to support our mission of saving adoptable dogs and puppies from our shelter partners. 


We need your help! We are in need of fosters. It is short term from a few days to maybe 2 weeks. We will supply all the things you would need to foster.

PLEASE if you can open your home up to a dog or puppies that are on their way to finding forever homes let us know.  It is so rewarding helping these dogs/pups and a lot of fun!

If you can, please fill out a foster application. If you have any questions please send us an email ( and someone will contact you.
