A Great Deli Dog Day!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Olde Corner Deli on June 30th for Deli Dog Day! Unfortunately the weather was a bit rainy, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of NCCR residents Chloe, Dolly & Pixie who were in attendance to soak up any attention that came their way!  A special thanks to Joyce for having us again this year and to the Deli employees for their donations. The Hot Diggity Dog basket was won by Maryann Baake.

Hotdog! It was a success!

Hotdog! It was a success!

It was a beautiful summer day for the Third Annual Hotdogs for Homeless Dogs kickoff to summer that was held at Sears in Fredonia on June 10th.  The two raffle baskets winners were: Linda Williams (Tervis Tumbler basket) and Dan Pleszewski (Puppy Picnic Basket).

Pixie, Dolly, and Honey, three of our current residents still waiting for homes, came to help out too. They had a great time meeting everyone!

Our thanks to Sears for their continuing support, to all of those who stopped in and to the volunteers who made the event possible!

Amazon Smile gives when you shop…

AmazonSmile, automatically donates 0.5% of your purchases to the charity you select, which hopefully is Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue!  It costs you (and the charitable organizations) nothing, and it’s just like shopping on Amazon normally, but you get to do a world of good.

 The only real catch is in order to make it count, you have to start your shopping at (which means you have to update your bookmark if you want to do this).  Just click on the icon below and get started.  The volunteers and dogs thank you!!

Our hearts wait for you…

Our hearts wait for you…

At any given time, most shelters and rescues have that one or two dogs that  just get overlooked.  Other dogs come and go, but they remain patiently waiting for their chance to be chosen. Sure, some of them have unique personalities, but for some it’s because of their breed,  their age, or they are ordinary looking or have a special need.

This page is to highlight a dog or two from each of our local rescue groups who could use the extra exposure with hopes that they will soon find a home. Each one of these dogs will be a wonderful family member if given the chance.


Introducing Sammi!  With a lot of effort, actually weeks of effort by NCCR’s Director and some kind people, Sammi was trapped and brought to NCCR two days before her puppies were born. She was feral, but with time and alot of patience from the volunteers, she has been undergoing a slow, yet amazing transformation.  Read more about Sammi here:

Penny has found a home!




Sweet Penny and her companion were taken to a kill shelter in W.V. and tied to a post during the night. Both of them were thin and obviously did not have all the meals they should have had. Penny is around 6 and she loves to eat but even more she wants to curl up in your lap for a belly rub. She seems to do well with other dogs, we don’t know how she is with cats. If you’re looking for a faithful companion that will enjoy your company then Penny may be a good choice for you!
