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

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. Click/tap here to see and read more about Newt!

This girl loves you already and she’s just met you through her photograph!! FRECKLES is a quiet, thoughtful girl who loves everyone she meets. With her smiley face and waggily tail, this very affectionate girl can’t help but steal your heart. FRECKLES is a 1-1/2 year old Border Collie mix.  FRECKLES was a perfect name for this little girl because of all the “freckles” on her face and paws!

MOOSE is a 4 ½ month old puppy wanting your love and support. Still sporting his fuzzy coat and youthful innocence. MOOSE is sweet and a bit shy, but has bloomed in foster care with both humans and his BC pack with every day showing confidence learning that humans can be good. At is first visit to the vet he was unsure, but by the end of the visit he was setting up and watching the cats, dogs and people with interest!  But check out Moose’s video to see how comfortable he is really is!
