Bring a Siberian into your home and he or she will find a home in your heart!
Welcome to the Southern Siberian Rescue Web Site
Southern Siberian Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers responsibly rescuing Siberian Huskies in need throughout North Carolina and surrounding states. Our sole purpose and priority is to help unwanted, misunderstood, abandoned or neglected Siberians find homes. We do this by providing needed health care, rehabilitation and training for all our foster dogs and carefully screening potential adopters.
The Siberian Husky is not a breed for everyone and adopters need to understand this breed and all of its quirks and beauty. We also spend a great deal of time educating potential owners and the public about the Siberian Husky, their special requirements, temperament, personalities and traits. We promote the importance of adopting from a reputable rescue or working with a responsible breeder when inviting a Siberian to your home.
If you chose not to rescue, please contact us on how to find a reputable breeder. With so many homeless Siberians and Siberians facing death in shelters, it goes without saying that we are serious advocates on spay and neutering your pets. Not only is it the responsible thing to do, it is the right thing to do medically. Statistics show that unaltered males are a higher risk for testicular cancer and unaltered females have a higher risk of mammary cancer.
Meet our Merry Mixes!!!
Southern Siberian Rescue has the Mix for you!
Southern Siberian Rescue normally rescues 35 - 40 dogs each year and we find homes for about 35 dogs. Not all of the dogs we rescue are pure 100% Siberians, some are mixes. These dogs are happy, healthy animals looking for a loving home.
Don't pass up considering these wonderful companions while browsing through our available dogs.

"A New Leash on Life" is a program that allows minimum and medium custody state prisons to partner with local animal shelters and animal welfare agencies to train dogs in preparation for their adoption. It gives inmates a chance to serve communities by training dogs to be well-behaved pets. To read more about our participation, click here.
Each prison facility partners with a local animal shelter, with animal trainers and with local merchants or civic organizations that can support the program with needed supplies and services.
Nash Correctional Institution is seeking sponsors and donations, including but not limited to, dog food, treats, leashes, food and water bowls, flea and tick prevention and other related supplies.
