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.

MONA is a heart thief. At 7 years of age, this 46 lb tri-color rough coat gal loves people! She lives to be petted, loved & adored. MONA will do anything with you from hanging out at your side to going outside to walk around, or play a little ball. She loves to be chased, especially when she has a tennis ball. She is really cute when she runs and hops around, with the ball occasionally flying out of her mouth so she can track it down and start all over again. Mona is house and crate trained. She is comfortable in her crate, willingly going in any time. She is quiet while in the crate. Walk by and she'll sit up and wag her tail to let you know she is ready for fun time! Click/tap here to see and read more about MONA.
