Rescue a dog,  Foster a dog, Don't buy a dog from a Puppy Mill!!!
A rescue volunteer created this wonderful video about  how many dogs there are in shelters across the US, and encouraging people to foster or rescue a shelter dog to show how happy families become when these dogs  find a loving new home. 

NGRR encourages getting your new dog from a shelter, a breed rescue group (like NGRR) or a reputable breeder.  We ask you not to buy dogs in pet stores or from backyard brokers becasue there is a reasonable chance that they came from puppy mills, where the dogs are raised in abominal conditions at the lowest cost.   The retail pet stores and puppy brokers, then offer them to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a healthy, pure bred dog at a bargain price.   Buying from pet stores or backyard brokers only encourages the puppy mills to breed more dogs.

HELP FIND THE CANCER CURE FOR DOGS

If you had a dog that died of cancer, you know how sad and powerless it made you feel. Fight back!!!  If you or someone you know has a dog with cancer of any kind, go the TGen website to find out how to submit a blood  sample.   They are seeking 2000 samples for  a hereditary DNA study . TGen will cover the cost of shipping and the blood analysis, plus will allow you $10 for the cost for the drawing the sample.   (However your vet may do it for free knowing it is going to research).

Bo: 

They say that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. Well, Bo has just turned 11 years old and he would disagree. During his time in his foster home, he has learned how to use the bell hanging on the door when he wants to go out in the yard, how to use a ramp to get in and out of the car, and most importantly, that being petted on the top of the head or under the chin is really good. Bo came to NGRR when his previous owner could no longer care for him due to his own ill health but he had obviously been loved and well-trained at some time as he knows sit and shake, walks beautifully on a leash, and is very well behaved for his grooming sessions. He does have some on-going medical conditions but he is now stable on his medications and his overall condition has improved to the point where he loves his daily walks, especially if he spots a squirrel to chase up the nearest tree. Bo is not always tolerant of all the doggies he meets while on a walk but he gets along wonderfully with the two dogs and is very respectful of the two cats in his foster home. When left home alone, Bo does not like to be in a crate but give him a stuffed Kong and a rug to lie on while you are out and he will be eagerly waiting in the hallway for your return. If you have a loving, special home to offer to this lovable special needs dog, contact us!

 Fosters are our most important people. Fosters take in surrendered dogs who need a safe home right away, they make sure vet visits and shots are done, and other wise care for the dog as if it were their own while in their custody.  Our fosters are compassionate, giving people, willing to invest their time and talent to help a dog in need.

If you are interested in becoming an NGRR foster, see our online foster application . One of our members will contact you and arrange an interview.

If you see a dog here that interests you, add the name and number of the dog in the comments section. However if you don't see a dog for you here, please still submit the application because our inventory of dogs changes frequently, and the best dog for you may not yet be on this page.
