In addition to dogs being fostered by NCBCRA, we also feature dogs being re-homed directly by their owners and available for adoption from shelters & other rescues. Please visit our Dogs Available From Owners and Dogs Available from Regional Shelters and Rescue web pages.

Due to limited resources, we are unable to accept owner surrender dogs into rescue at this time. We encourage anyone looking to re-home their dog to review the detailed information on re-homing at badrap.org

Introducing Ben!!!

COPPER is a stunning 8-year-old border collie that is both active, yet content to spend time following his foster dad around the farm while he does chores, or stretch out in the sun when his foster mom & dad read the paper on the back patio. He loves to ride along in the car for errands to town, meeting people in the shops and offices he visits. Everyone comments on what a lovely boy he is!

COPPER is a dog that bonds strongly with his person. While he likes his foster mom and the people he meets out & about, he REALLY likes his foster dad and chooses to spend his time & attention with him. He will love having a person to call his own again, as he is a devoted companion.  Click/tap here to see and read more about COPPER.

MAC is a gentle giant. At seven months of age and 60 pounds, this pup has some growing to do. MAC is a big fan of bones and toys but mostly MAC wants to enjoy his family and be included in all of their activities. He’ll curl up on the couch if we are watching TV, or if the other dogs have occupied the available spots he’ll plant himself on one of the dog beds. If you are heading outside he will wag his tail and head for the door. When we head to bed he goes into his crate, gladly and gently accepts his treat, then stays quiet until morning.

Say hello to Mac!!!

Say hello to our big gentle BEN! He is a 5 year old BC/Lab/Cattle dog mix. We just love his freckled look! BEN was an owner surrender who lived with an elderly couple. At 70 lbs he was probably a bit overfed him and may not have gotten enough exercise, but he is now doing well adjusting to a healthier diet and getting regular walks. We would like to see him trim down 10 lbs or so. BEN has been friendly with people and dogs he has met. While he is cat curious we expect he would be OK in a home with cats so long as they are tolerant of curious dogs. Click/tap here to read and see more photos of Ben.
