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

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.

KARA is an energetic two-year old with a soft, silky, smooth coat. She is about 45 pounds and ready to love her way into your heart. When she looks at you with that one blue eye and one brown eye you will want to melt. And if you are one for hugs and kisses she is the right gal! She is just as happy being outside with you as she is cuddled up on the couch watching TV. KARA is house trained; she has not had an accident since joining our little club. She is also crate trained. Click/tap here to read and see more photos of Kara.

On March 23 we started our fourth year of service. We wish to thank everyone who has contributed to our having placed over 500 dogs into loving homes. Your continued support will heal, feed and enhance the lives of nearly 200  dogs for this next year.

If you wish to make a 501(c)(3) tax deductible donation, please visit our Donations webpage.  Everyone at NCBCRA is a non-paid volunteer. This results in an astounding 96% of your donation being spent directly on the dogs!  Woof!

Introducing Kara!!
