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).

Sarah (Female, 6 years old)
We have truly enjoyed having Sarah in our home these past five weeks, she is a sweet, good-natured, beautiful girl.  She is fully house trained, and will let you know when she needs to be let outside.  Sarah gets along well with other dogs, no matter their size.  We have been making regular visits to our local dog park, and she enjoys this immensely.  She runs (fast!) chasing, and learning more and more how to play with the other dogs. She patrols our yard intensely, looking for cats and squirrels that, in her opinion, have no place in her world.  We have also been walking the neighborhood every day, and Sarah needs some training with learning to not pull on her leash.  I am currently introducing the gentle lead style leash which should greatly reduce this habit.  She will bark when she sees another dog, however, I notice a reduction in this behavior since we have been going to the dog park.  We have been taking her with us as often as we can so that she can be introduced to more experiences.  This seems to be making her more comfortable and confident.   She enjoys her two meals a day, requiring no enticement to eat her food.  Sometimes she leaves a little, but always goes back later to clean her bowl.  She is affectionate and gentle, and at the end of the day when it’s time to “go to bed” she heads to her blanket for a long sleep.

 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.
