Paws Place Dog Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill shelter dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of dogs. Since 1999, they have placed loving dogs with loving families in Wilmington, Southport and other surrounding areas.
Here are some of the dogs that we had the opportunity to meet and take for a photo shoot!
Breed: Beagle mix – male
Size: 38 lbs
Info: Hi there – I’m not sure if you’ve heard my sad story. My mom, who loved me very much, passed away very unexpectedly at a young age and left me all alone. I miss her a lot, but Paws Place said that another family is going to come and take me home. I sure hope they’re right. I’m a little nervous at the kennel, but I’m really a very sweet and loving dog. I like people a lot, and I love to get visitors. Sometimes they even take me on a walk! I like to get my beagle nose sniffing, you know? Anyway, I hope someone will come take a chance on a sweet boy like me.
Breed: Pit bull terrier – female
Size: 67.5 lbs
Info: Hi, my name is Nina! I’m a very sweet, loveable, five-year-old pit bull. I’m a big girl with a big heart, and I’m looking for someone to share my love with. I like to go on walks, and I’m a good girl on a leash. I know I’m big, so I try not to pull too hard, and I also know not to jump on people! I want to so bad because I just want to give everyone a big hug, but I just jump up and down in place instead – it’s actually pretty cute if I do say so myself. If you’re in the market for a big, goofy, loveable girl to share your life with, look no further. I just can’t wait to find myself a forever home. I love cuddling and I love to be around people. Please, won’t you take a chance on me?
HW: Completed treatments
Breed: Mixed breed – male
Size: 45 lbs
Info: Hello! Are you in the market for a friendly, playful, happy, loving dog? You are?! I know that might sound cliché, but I really am just the epitome of a sweet dog! I love people; I think I would like other dogs, and I’m enjoying the good food and treats here. I even get to go on walks here! Do you like walks? I would love a family that could take me on adventures or even just play in the backyard. I would be a perfect family dog. I really hope you’re in the market for a medium-sized, loving sweet boy like me. Come out to the kennel to meet me!!
Breed: Small mixed breed – female
Size: 12 lbs (est 20 lbs at maturity)
Info: Hi ya! If you’d like a sassy, playful, confident little pup, well…here I am! I came to Paws Place with my mama, Josie, maybe you’ve seen her picture? A good Samaritan found the two of us, and we were lucky enough to find ourselves here! I’m all caught up with vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. My mama is only 19 pounds if that gives you an idea of how big (or small) I’ll be. I’m a very curious little dog, and I like to play and explore! I sure hope a fun family will come and choose me to be their forever dog!
These are just four of the loving pups that are at Paws Place they have many more friends that need adopted too! Head over and check out the dogs that are available for adoption.
Don’t forget to sign your team up for the Paws Place Golf Outing and have your chance to win a 2019 Tahoe. You have to play to win and this is a win win situation!

We know the end of summer is quickly approaching, so before summer is over we want to take you up the coast on a North Carolina Lighthouse Tour, follow us! Let’s all jump into our Chevrolet Equinox and begin our coastal adventure!
1.Oak Island Lighthouse
To start your trip it’s only right to visit the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina. First stop is the Oak Island Lighthouse built-in 1952 replacing the Cape Fear Lighthouse. Made out of concrete long and skinny tower had the brightest light in the United States from 1958-1962, standing on Bald Head Island since 1817. Old Baldy has rightfully earned its right to be the first stop.
2. Cape Lookout Lighthouse
The next lighthouse on our list is on the beautiful Crystal Coast we have Cape Lookout. This lighthouse is on the Outer Banks in the southernmost part and it’s painted for directions with black facing north and south and white east and west. If you’re lucky you might even spot some wild horses!
3. Ocracoke Lighthouse
As simple and remote as the Ocracoke Lighthouse may seem it had been guiding sailors and boats since 1823. The lighthouse stands 75 feet tall, diameter narrows from 25feet at the base to 12 feet at its peak. Being one of the most remote stretches of the Outer Banks, this could be a full-day experience from seeing Ocracoke Lighthouse to exploring the island.
4. Cape Hatteras Lighthouse
Can’t miss the tallest brick lighthouse in the US and we are lucky to have it right on the North Carolina coast on Hatteras Island. Originally built in 1803 Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was built as a ‘guiding light’ to help sailors navigate through the graveyard of the Atlantic. There are 269 steps from the group level to the lens of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Always impressive to see the brick lighthouse standing at 210 ft.
5. Bodie Island Lighthouse
The Bodie Island Lighthouse has been replicated three times since 1872, standing 156 feet tall. It is located on the Roanoke Sound, it is located amongst the marshland. The view from the top is incredible and totally worth it.
6. Currituck Beach Lighthouse
Currituck stands out being the only natural-brick lighthouse on the coast with 1 million bricks. Towering over the northern Outer Banks historic Corolla Village making for a beautiful sight at the top with expansive views of the Currituck Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Currituck is the largest of seven Fresnel lens sizes being known as a first-order lighthouse.
7. Roanoke Lighthouse
We are at our last stop of the trip often one of the most overlooked Outer Banks lighthouses we have Roanoke LIghthouse. Don’t be discouraged by it being tucked away in the quiet east end of Manteo waterfront with small stature and limited visibility, it’s still a lovely sight to see. It jets out 40 yards into the Roanoke Sound with a prim white exterior with black shutters and red shingled roof, capped off by a 2′ ft., 4″ in. the tall lens gives this lighthouse a classic coastal look. Enjoy the fantastic waterfront view and stroll the wooden boardwalk to explore the exterior.
We have completed our North Carolina Lighthouse tour! We hope you had fun and enjoyed our roomy Equinox, be sure to stop back again for another road trip!
