Introducing Sneakers!

Sneakers is one of those wonderfully affectionate and playful dogs who coincidentally has outstanding manners. She is sociable with people and dogs alike. As her lean physique suggests, she should make an excellent running partner - jogs, sprints, marathons, take your pick! If you’re looking for an all around nice and active dog, Sneakers is your girl!

Meet Samson and Finn, two border collies arriving at our door step with major medical problems. Samson with an intestinal obstruction and Finn with a long term foot injury. What they had in common is that they both had positive outcomes expected if they could receive the care they needed. Thanks to generous past support, NCBCRA was able to authorize immediate surgeries for both dogs. Each is now cozy in a foster home and on the road to recovery. Click here to read more of their stories.

For NCBCRA, rescue is not justDonations! about taking in healthy dogs, but also about helping out the sick and injured. As exemplified in this video of Samson, there is no better feeling than seeing a dog wagging its tail after surgery. It is why we do what we do.

Now on to the hard part of paying the bills. Being a rescue, we may receive much appreciated reductions in veterinary fees; nonetheless the remaining surgery, follow up care and medication costs are significant. They tally tens of thousands of dollars a year (this pair alone is over $5,000). Your tax deductible donation allows us to help Samson, Finn and others like them. Without your help we could not help these dogs achieve this quality of life. Please reach into your hearts and pockets and help us to continue the effort.

Thank you, with kisses, from Samson & Finn!!
