ABARC is a small rescue doing big things!

Based in Apex, North Carolina, All Breed Animal Rescue of the Carolinas, or ABARC, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to saving neglected, unwanted, stray or abused dogs in North Carolina and surrounding areas and finding them happy, safe homes with new, loving families.

If you’d like to learn how ABARC came to be, read more on the ABOUT us page.  Ready to add a new member to the family?  Take a look at the dogs that are ready to ADOPT or consider becoming a FOSTER parent.  And if you just want to help (Thank you!) head on over to the DONATE page and then sign up to be a VOLUNTEER.



View the dogs under our care that are currently available to adopt and also learn more about the ABARC adoption process.


You supply the love and nurturing until a forever family is found. ABARC covers vet care, vaccines, training classes, and more.


ABARC has many volunteer opportunities available. Benefits include puppy kisses, waggin’ tails, and lots of love from us.
