Freedom Ride:

No paws left behind

We are proud to be the crazy dog lovers who skip out from our day job to transport dogs from all over to their excited fosters’ homes … who stay up late searching shelter pages for that next “Freedom Ride” potential …. who volunteer countless hours making rescue a reality!

Freedom Ride Rescue is run by volunteers in Raleigh/Clayton/Durham, North Carolina. What that means is that we are all doing this while juggling our own lives, jobs and families … so bear with us as things may not move as quickly as excited adopters want! If you have energy, a love for animals and a little bit of time to spare, consider joining our team!

We are foster based: meaning we have no facility and every one of our adoptable (and not yet ready to be adopted) animals are in homes where families are teaching trust, love, basic manners …. getting your future dog ready to be the best addition to your family! As fosters, we are willing to have our heart break after we love, rehabilitate and nurse an unwanted, unloved animal until they walk away with their fur-ever person – often never looking back at they start their most life’s wonderful chapter: the one as cherished pet.

So join our road to Freedom Rides! It is a wonderful, tight-knit family needing volunteers, fosters, donors …. and people willing to care. And maybe our children will realize a no-kill state where rescues and fostering is unnecessary.
