You may have started your miniature schnauzer search by looking for a “puppy” but someone suggested you check out a “rescue” and so you are here. Welcome!
Miniature Schnauzers are a WONDERFUL breed! They are smaller dogs (generally between 10lbs – 25lbs), intelligent, energetic, and very devoted to their families.
NORTH CAROLINA SCHNAUZER RESCUE, INC. (NCSR) is a 501c3 non-profit, all-volunteer group that works in North Carolina to rescue, assess through fostering, care for medical needs, and adopt out pure-bred miniature schnauzers. We also strive to educate the public on schnauzer-specific and other canine issues, and support spay/neuter for all family pets to help reduce pet overpopulation.
NCSR does not have a central shelter location - our rescue group is made up of foster homes throughout the state of North Carolina, with concentrations of membership in the greater Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Charlotte, Asheville, and Wilmington areas.
