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.

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).

Willy TWJ!

Willy is looking for his perfect family! He's a very affectionate and goofy guy who wants love and attention. He is between 3-5 years old and very active. He loves gardening, walks, car rides and taking warm showers (he'll walk right in with you and stay there as long as you are there)!!!

He does not seem to know that he's missing a hind leg and gets around easily. Even chases balls.
 
He is not very good about sharing (toys or food) with people or dogs. He needs to be an only dog for a while till he learns to do so. He's looking for an experienced family (no kids please!)  who will be willing to help him. He is smart and eager to learn. He's never had anyone love him and so is greedy for attention and a sense of belonging.

He is currently living with his foster sister Penny and loves her. Not sure what he thinks of cats - he was pretty respectful of one that he met but he was in a new environment.

​Willy is a cute and cuddly fellow, we want someone with the patience to train him and work with him for a few months.  You will be so rewarded.  This will also give you a great time bonding with this character.  Shower time will be loads of fun and laughs too. ​​

If you think you may be his perfect

​people​​ please contact your Area Coordinator.​


Update 4/12/15: Adopted! LAKOTA!

Lakota is looking for an experienced, loving, owner. She is coming from Kaui which has been her only home with her human mom, dog brother and dog sister. They have had many acres of land to roam, play and grow up on. New neighbors moved in and they literally TAUNT the dogs at the fences. Kaui has very strict laws, different from here. The owner is being fined regularly, if Lakota was to stay on the island then she literally faces putting her beloved girl down. 
The owner reached out to NGRR since there is no golden rescue on the island. she is paying for all the expenses to bring her to us. This transition will be hard for Lakota. We want to make it as easy as possible for her to set her in an environment that is all about her. Love and activity. Her mom has she dmany tears, and many more to come. This is breaking her heart, the stress, legal stuff, financials, and losing her beloved Lakota is a lot. Her mom is requesting and open adoption. Meaning she would like to have a little communication, and pictures. To help her know she is ok. Lakota is an At in obedience training. Sit, Stay, heal, and come. She loves to play ball and will even drop the ball for you. Isn't that nice? Of course she loves to swim living in Kaui she loves to basque in the sun too. She has had a very nice life. This Friday Lakota will be traveling alone for the first time. 
We will do our best to help her adjust. If you have a warm spot in your heart, please contact your Area Coordinator.

 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.
