About Us


Who We Are

 Rugby Creek Animal Rescue, Inc (RCAR) is registered as a Virginia non-profit corporation and is designated by the IRS as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization so donations can be tax-deductible and all donations support our rescue program.  RCAR is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, retirement and adoption of at-risk, injured and geriatric animals. 


What We Do

We assist the local community as well as surrounding counties in 3 states, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and other places where there are needs.  Depending on the year and our abilities we pull 30-100 dogs from rural kill shelters, quarantine and then network transport them to higher population areas up north for adoption.  We generally provide and care for an average of 10-15 Horses and Donkeys and rescue, rehab and re-home around 10-30 each year.
