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

Hi, my name is NEWTON.  My foster family says I am a senior, but I'm not even the oldest dog in the house, so I don't really know what that means. My foster dad says I'm distinguished, but my foster mom says I am homely, goofy and she doesn't know what heck kind of dog I am. I don't know what that means either. I just want to play ball. I want to play ball in the morning. I want to play ball all day. I want to play ball before I go to bed. Do you want to play ball with me? Oh wait . . . breakfast and dinner and pretty important to me too. Click/tap here to see and read more about Newt!

This past Christmas eight beautiful puppies were born to a young BC named Holly. Miss Holly whelped six boys and two girls. The pups are now over eight weeks old and three have been placed into their forever homes, leaving five gorgeous Christmas presents to hand out still. The remaining males are BLITZEN, COMET, DASHER & ELF. The remaining female is CUPID. The Christmas puppies have all been wormed, had their first of three rounds of puppy vaccines, are microchipped, and are on monthly heartworm & flea/tick prevention.  Click/tap here to see and read more about the Christmas Puppies.

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.
