The 2020 Calendar-sold out, but more arriving!


#3 Calendar 2015The 2020 Calendars will be back in stock by December 11th.  You can pre order now and they will be sent to you upon arrival.   One former NCCR dog from each year since 2005 is featured. All of the other photos entered in the drawing appear on days of each month. The calendars are $10 each. 

Proceeds from calendars benefit the Sampson Fund.  The Sampson Fund was established specifically for veterinary expenses for  our most urgent cases. This year, we were able to care for several ill and injured dogs that we may not have been able to afford without the Sampson Fund. Just a few examples: NCCR takes in strays and turnovers and occasionally those dogs arrive with medical problems. There were three cases alone this year where hip and leg surgeries were required. As a general rule, these surgeries cost between $1600 and $2000. We had a litter of 8 puppies, all seemingly healthy and going to their new homes. Parvo is a very sneaky disease and can pop up when least expected.Two of the puppies became ill after going home ended up at  emergency vet clinics in 2 different cities. The cost was in the thousands to care for both puppies which were covered by the Sampson Fund. Another dog was admitted to an emergency hospital with an unknown illness and the Sampson Fund came to the rescue.

As you can see it does not take long to deplete the Sampson Fund. This fund is such an important part of our finances as we are able to help dogs that otherwise would not receive the help they need. Learn more about the Sampson Fund here:
