About Us

Rainbow Animal Rescue is a no-kill rescue based in north-east North Carolina. We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization (EIN 20-0241166). We are not a business and do not employ anyone. We started our rescue over 20 years ago in an effort to help the many unwanted, abandoned and mistreated animals in Halifax County, North Carolina and the surrounding areas. We do not have an 'adoption center' where you can walk around and meet the dogs. We foster pets in our homes in the area around Roanoke Rapids until we can find loving 'forever' homes for them. If you would like to adopt a dog, you must first fill in the adoption application form. We rely on donations from the public to help us save the dogs and cats. Rainbow Rescue has been online since November 2nd 2003.

We have adult dogs and puppies coming in to the rescue every week, so keep checking back. If you are interested in a certain breed, feel free to email with your interest. We also are in desperate need of foster homes. Many dogs and puppies are at the Halifax pound and are running out of time. If you think you can open your heart and home to these babies, please call or write. These dogs really do deserve a second chance.

Donations of your time are always welcome. We are always looking for good foster homes (really need these), help with cleaning kennels, transports, fundraising, etc. Even a few hours a month can make a difference. If you think you would like to help out, please contact us. Cash donations are always gratefully accepted, too. We do not have a rich benefactor so we rely on donations to help the animals. See our donation page by clicking here. Your donations are tax deductible. Thank you!

If you are interested in adopting a pet from our rescue, please fill out our Adoption Application Form. We do not ship pets, but can work with you to arrange transport.
