December 22, No Adoption Fair


Stepping Stones is comprised entirely of volunteers who continually give their time, their homes, and their finances to the dogs.  Helping our foster homes is a great way to support the dogs in our program.  Currently, the greatest needs are:

Dry Dog Food (Purina, Purina Puppy, Purina One, Iams, Kirkland's)
Canned Dog/Puppy Food (Any kind)
Dog Toys
Dog Beds
Puppy Pads and old newspapers
Paper Towels
Heartworm and Flea Prevention

Remember, all donations to Stepping Stones are TAX DEDUCTIBLE since we are a 501c3 non-profit organization.  We appreciate the generousity that has been shown to us this year, and we thank you all in advance for your continued support!

Stepping Stones will not hold an adoption fair this Saturday (12/22) so that our volunteers can take a break and spend some time with their families.  We hope that all of you will get to do this as well.  We will resume regular adoption fairs next Saturday (12/29) at Pet Supermarket in Winston-Salem.

We wish everyone safe and happy holidays!
And, we look forward to seeing everyone next week!

Welcome - We're Building

Welcome! Please excuse us while we create this website and get things organized. If you are here to find out more about Stepping Stones Canine Rescue or are ready to adopt your next best friend, we welcome you.

Feel free to contact us at

Opening your home to a new furry family member can be a rewarding and wonderful experience. When you are ready, please consider a rescue dog. Hundreds of dogs are euthanized every day… one of them may just be your best friend.
