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).

Rose TWJ, arrived 5/24 from Taiwan.

Update July 12 - Rose has been successfully adopted! Thank You for your donations and support!
Update Jun 24 - Rose is going to see her Doctor for a follow up visit today!


Rose arrived to NGRR at about 2-3yrs, 50lbs, loves life, and was exploring her new world with limited site.  She could see you if you were right in front of her, but about 60% was shadows to Rose. She was diagnosed here in the USA with cataracts in both eyes. We discovered this after she arrived from Taiwan. 
Rose underwent cataract surgery immediately on June 12th, 2014 and is recovering.  She traveled 6,500 miles to us so that we could give her the care she deserves to have.

Rose's cataract surgery will cost approximately $5,000.  If you would like to help Rose by making a donation we would be honored by your help:

Before being rescued in Taiwan, Rose and her sister Mary were thrown away like garbage and found tied to a dumpster.  A compassionate man found them and brought them to a shelter. They were then picked up by our wonderful Foster Group in Taiwan for care. Both she and her sister had previously been used as breeders, with very little human contact or love. 

Now being cared for by NGRR foster care, she now lives for human contact. Rose is very smart and is learning to navigate her world.  She is learning to swim everyday and loves it! Rose is looking to adopt the perfect people, hopefully without cats, young children, and the only dog.

We're also happy to report that her sister Mary has been successfully adopted!

Rose in her doggie way says "Thank You very much, Woof, Woof".
Coming Soon: Lily

 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.

 
Click on any dog image below to see more information. If you would like to look into adoption, please submit an Online Adoption Form . 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. You can also help us find loving new homes for these dogs by going to our On Line Donation form.
