Rottweiler Hearts Rescue

RHR ogranization for Rottweiler home placements

RHR is a 501c3 non-profit all-volunteer rescue organization. RHR is a Durham area rescue/placement organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and careful rehoming of neglected, lost, surrendered, or otherwise homeless Rottweiler dogs in the central North Carolina region. RHR is also dedicated to preventing this by promoting responsible dog ownership regarding the proper care and training of Rottweilers.

Rottweiler Hearts Rescue does not have a shelter, and depends on the generosity of our foster homes who open their homes and hearts to our Rottweilers. RHR is an all-volunteer rescue organization with seasoned rescuers who have been rescuing and placing Rottweiler dogs for many years. Our volunteers receive no pay. All money given to, and raised by Rottweiler Hearts Rescue through donations, adoptions, events, and fundraisers goes directly to benefit our rescued Rotties.
