Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Red Barn Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit, volunteer-supported dog rescue organization serving Clayton NC, Johnston County and the surrounding area. We are principally dedicated to rescuing adoptable dogs who are at high risk for euthanasia in public animal shelters. On a case-by-case basis, we also take in stray dogs and those surrendered to us due to the hardships of their families who can no longer care for them (in order to keep them from being surrendered to the shelter, where they would be at risk for euthanasia).

Results: Every year we work with animal shelters and other rescue organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets, to lower euthanasia rates in area shelters and to reduce the pet population by promoting spay/neuter services. Over 100 dogs a year are rescued or provided vet care through our program.

Target demographics: save adoptable dogs who are at risk for euthanasia due to overcrowding in shelters

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 100 dogs at risk to be euthanized in area shelters

Geographic areas served: Johnston County, NC and surrounding areas

Programs: Rescuing dogs from high kill shelters
Adoptions of rescue dogs
Spay and neutering of rescue dogs
Providing vet care for injured or heartworm positive dogs

The woman who runs this is Horrible! I filled out the application call her for more info texted her two hours later she didn't even know who I was. She claimed my vet had record but when I called them they did. I gave her my previous vet. I had to give them permission to talk to her. She told me I was a great fit for the dog then she Never called me back. She is Horrible!

Trudy, I don't believe anyone else has described our director as "horrible", and to describe someone with a big heart who dedicates their life to animal rescue that way is unfairly harsh. I am sorry if you were unsatisfied or disappointed in the response from our rescue when you applied to adopt Dolly. As a volunteer run organization, we try our best to be responsive and handle inquiries as quickly and completely as we can. If you check our reviews elsewhere, I think you will find that the majority of people have a good experience adopting from our rescue so we are sorry you did not have that same experience. Never the less, we hope that you were able to find a dog through another rescue to fill your heart and home. Best wishes.
