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

MILTON is a beautiful tri-color senior boy, about 9-10 years young. MILTON is currently interviewing for his Forever Home. He wins all prizes for being a champion tail-wagger with a loving disposition. His vision is diminished from cataracts, but he sees shadows and forms, which makes him cautious, but calm and determined in his movements. In short order he learned where the doggie door was at his Foster Home. He loves to go for walks, feeling secure with his person on a leash. His Foster Mom is quickly falling for his handsome features and self confidence to trust in his abilities. Click/tap to see and read more about MILTON.

PATRICK is an adorable 1 year old who is very playful and full of energy. Its go go PATRICK, watch him GO GO GO. PATRICK is very athletic and acrobatic (agility maybe??). He can run, bounce and jump with the best of ‘em but has shown zero inclination to jump the fence, probably because he knows he gets three squares and a warm place to sleep. Yes, I said three squares. PATRICK came to us a bit thin so we are putting some extra meat on his bones. PATRICK loves to eat and is up to about 27 lbs. He will probably top out at 30 – 32 lbs.

Say hello to DOTTIE! This beautiful 3-year old, smooth coat blue merle border collie is very affectionate and loves her people. She likes to be with you, hanging out, walking or running, curling up for a nap or bedding down for the night. While initially doing a bit of pulling on the leash, DOTTIE quickly figured it out and became a good walking companion. DOTTIE is housebroken and crate trained, sleeping quietly all night.
