Sunburst Foundation has been a Nonprofit Canine Rescue since 2003.  While we are still rescuing canines on a small scale, we have concentrated our efforts the past few years in proactive approach.  This entails looking at the “Big Picture” and realizing that unless we stop the in-flow of homeless cats and dogs into municipal shelters, we will never be able to provide rescue to them all.  Sunburst Foundation had a very successful grant program

Need Pet Boarding?

A Dogs Dream Kennel
has fostered many homeless canines over the years.  Some of these have been Sunburst Foundation canines ... Wolfgang, Jerry, Jai, Lola, Ted, to name a few.

They are making this special offer:
"Any dog that has been adopted from a rescue or animal control within the past year receives $20 off their first stay at A Dogs Dream Kennel."

Contact them directly to make arrangements for your pet's next overnight boarding needs.

through an anonymous benefactor in which $5000 was used to provide spay/neuter services to around 50 canines.  These were owned canines only and targeted for this grant meaning that they were among the biggest contributors to canine overpopulation in the Pender County area.

As the verse goes, “Helping one dog won’t change the world, but it will change the world for that dog.”  This is how our community can work together to make this a reality, 1 pet at a time.
Due to the prevalence of heartworm disease in our area of the country, heartworm treatment
is both costly and time intensive.  Visit our Special Medical Needs page to see how you can help.

A Celebrity in our Midst

One of our foster dogs has become a local celebrity after his debut in the soon to be released Happy2 video of Wrightsville Beach.  It is Zesty (black lab) in the pics.  Release date is Sept 1, 2014.  He had a blast filming it.
The dogs/puppies from top left are
Mama Misty, Mama Maria, Pinky, Dottie,
Dixie, Benji, Danny, Bagel

The puppies are now almost 13 weeks old and 3 have been adopted: Biggie, Amber, and Blue.  The 2 momma dogs and 6 puppies are available.  Please share their plea.  The pups are super sweet and extremely smart.  The mama dogs are probably around a year old and very shy but super sweet.  Please contact us for more information on making one of these sweet pups part of your family
