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

Meet MICAH, a 30-pound mid-size boy with a rough coat and stand-up ears.  Did someone say play? That’s what MICAH loves to do – play, play, play! If no one in his border collie foster pack wants to play in any moment, MICAH will fix that – he will get a game of chase going, start a wrestling match, or instigate a game of tag. MICAH also loves to be with his humans and will be your shadow, following you around the house and laying at your feet. He is a happy boy with medium high energy, is very food-motivated, and is responsive to basic commands.. Click/tap to see and read more about MICAH.

Meet CRAIG, a 1-year old 60-pound ‘puppy’ who loves to play with just about everyone. CRAIG has a medium coat, stunning markings, and piercing blue eyes. He loves to be right in the action, socializing and playing games, and will easily roll over for a good belly rub and affection from his human. Like any young dog, CRAIG is learning his manners in his foster home, such as no jumping, walking on a leash and recall, and will benefit from a basic obedience class with his new family. CRAIG is housetrained and sleeps in his crate at night, loves to chew on his antler or any other toy, and has a happy personality. Click/tap to see and read more about Craig.

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. Click/tap here to see and read more about NEWT.
