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.

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. Oh! and chasing birds. Sometimes I chase the cats too. Click/tap to see and read more about NEWT.


Meet TRIXIE, a petite 4-year-old border collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix. She is such a sweet girl, seeking affection & attention. Sometimes, she gets a little overly excited & jumps up, but she quickly stops when asked to. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house & property, but will also go off on her own to explore. She has excellent house manners & is crate-trained & housebroken.

Meet Trixie!!

Say Hi to Newt!!
