"Within the heart of every stray lies the singular desire to be loved"

~ Monty's Home ~

    Inspired by the love and generous spirit of Monty – a once-in-a-lifetime therapy dog that succumbed to cancer on October 6, 2006.

Monty's Home ( is a non-profit shelter rescue organization near Wilmington, North Carolina, that created the

The volunteers at Monty’s Home come from diverse backgrounds, but share a common bond. We all want to help other pet owners deal with pet illnesses, geriatric ailments, end-of-life issues and parting grief. Pet lovers need somewhere to turn and someone who understands the shock, sorrow and stress that comes with hearing difficult news, and the tough decisions that news can bring. Monty’s Home offers non-judgmental support and education about alternatives and choices. For more information Click here


In May of 2008 Monty’s Home received state approval to start its Pawsitive Partners Prison Program (PPPP) the first companion dog prison training program in Southeastern North Carolina, and also the largest in the entire state. Working closely with the administration of Pender Correctional Institution in Burgaw, NC a dedicated team of volunteers developed a program that not only benefits rescued animals, it benefits the inmates involved in the program as well. Monty’s Home trainers select five dogs from a local shelter. After temperament evaluation, heartworm testing, spay/neuter and vaccinations, the dogs enter the PPPP. The dogs live at the facility and specially screened inmate-trainers take them through a nine week training course. After a class graduates, the dogs are adopted out in the community as family pets and five more shelter dogs enter the program. To see dogs available for adoption Click here.


They've created this music video called "It's Cool to Adopt". It has a catchy song with a point, featuring area children and their families and their adopted pets. Enjoy and please share it with your friends.
