1. Benji (Boxer & German Shepherd Dog Mix) - Benji is a 8 month old Boxer/German Shepherd boy. He has not been socialized much so is skittish when meeting people. He is very sweet once he learns to trust you and will give you tentative kisses on your hands and nose if you let him. He loves other dogs and can play well with other puppies as well as adult dogs. He is gentle even when he plays. He's calm, not hyper like other puppies. And he is very smart; it only takes once or twice of showing/telling him something for him to get it. He just needs someone who will be patient and gentle with him for him to come out of his shell. 

Benji is crate trained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. Contact Quynh Pham at, or text 704-560-5533. Benji is at the Carolina German Shepherd Rescue.

2. Cadbury Davis (Lhasa Apso Mix) - Hello Everyone Cadbury here, I am 12 years old I been around the block, as they say, and at this point in my life I like to take things slow. I have lived the hustle and bustle of the fast-paced lifestyle, and now I just want to kick back and enjoy the fruits of my labors. No crazy dance parties, Just a cool bowl of water, a nice soft lap or couch, and maybe some reruns of Lassie on the tube. If you are one of those cat people, that is ok with me. I like cats because they too enjoy the laid-back, simple life that I am looking for. If you’re a dog person, that’s cool too, I get along just fine with my fellow canines, ignore them actually. You don't even have to worry about picking up after me, I keep a clean house. So if you are a single person, retired couple, or a family with respectful kids looking for a partner with similar interests, send ol Cadbury here a note at I am currently located in North Carolina so hurry and send me a note or apply to adopt me at

You can apply to adopt this adorable little fluff at This adorable little fluff is altered, up to date on all shots and heartworm negative.

3. Carmel (Labrador Retriever Mix) - Carmel was born around 11/22/15. Her mom is a black lab mix, no idea what else she is mixed with. She is a little shy right now but coming around. Current on vaccinations • Primary Color(s): Golden • Coat Length: Long. Carmel can be adopted from HS Cabarrus Animal Rescue - Concord, NC.


1. Noah (Domestic Short Hair; pictured above) - Noah is a beautiful boy with very unique markings and eyes. He is very affectionate and loves attention from anyone willing to give it. 

However, Noah may have had a rough life before we saved him. He is extremely shy and would do much better in a home without small children or dogs. When he feels there is too much going on he wants to hide. 

But Noah has so much love to give for the right family willing to be patient with him and give him time to adjust. 

Noah is around 3 years old and fully vetted. He can be adopted at Operation Paw Time.

2. Gabrielle (Domestic Short Hair-black and white) - Hi I'm Gabrielle. I am about 1 years old and I love to play with my kitty friends. I am still very shy around new people but will warm up after a while. I've had all my vetting done and now I'm ready tor a forever home to call my own. Gabrielle can be adopted at Operation Paw Time

3. Lilu (Calico) - Lilu was rescued from a high kill shelter with only 1 day before being euthanized. Lilu was turned in by her previous owner and ready to give birth to her kittens. As soon as we rescued her she had 4 cute kittens. All but one of her kittens have found forever homes, now they too wish for a family of their own. Lilu is very shy but gentle and sweet. She likes to be petted and get belly rubs. She will dive in front of you and roll around all cute to get her belly rubbed. Lilu only seldom plays and has great house manners. She is fine with other cats and kittens as long as they do not constantly want to play. She does well with dogs, however, they tend to make her feel stressed and would prefer a house without any dogs. Lilu would be a perfect cat for any home. Lilu can be adopted at Operation Paw Time
