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

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.

Hey Mona!!

MIMI is a sweet little, 18 month old BC mix with a cute little bob tail. She absolutely loves her toys and loves to be a part of the group. Mimi spent a lot of time outside and did not have much opportunity to learn how to be her best self. She is learning house manners and simple commands like “sit”, “wait”, “stay” and “out“. Mimi fits in well with her foster family and is learning to play in the pack. Usually, she can often be seen off by herself playing with her favorite little soccer ball. Although she can entertain herself, she is best when she is not left alone for long periods of time. She is a quick learner and has a strong desire to please. Training this little girl should be simple and rewarding. Mimi rides quietly in the car in her crate.
