Macy (formerly Daisy)

Daisy now macy“Macy is doing great and enjoys her big puppy brothers. Her best friend is her 3 year old puppy cousin, probably because they have the same energy level. She loves to snuggle and is always looking for love and affection. We can’t thank you guys enough for allowing us to bring Macy (Daisy) into our home. She is so loving and fits right in. She loves to snuggle with all of us and brings us so much joy. We are so happy that we could give her a loving home that she deserves.”
(Macy was adopted in December 2019)

 

Ella and Blu

Eden now Ella and BluLittle Ella (formerly Eden) was adopted in October 2019. She joined brother Blu who was adopted from NCCR in 2017.  She settled in nicely, has graduated from puppy classes and loves the resident cat!

Pretty Penny

Penny squarePenny arrived at NCCR on 10/12/19 from an overcrowded shelter where her time had run out. She is a spayed female, thought to be around 6-8 years old.  Penny was adopted in December 2019.  “We kept her name the same. She eats and sleeps good and lets us know when she has to go outside. We are working on a few bad habits she has, like jumping up on the counter, getting into the recycle bin and snapping at the other dogs when she is near one of us and she doesn’t want the other dog to be with us too (She is getting much better with this and realizing we love on her just as much as the other dogs). She is also learning to stay standing when we put her coat on, she would always lay down and roll on her back, lol. Other then that she is sweet, loves to cuddle and go for walks where she catches every scent out there. She loves car rides  We actually think she is more Pointer then Dalmatian!”

Lilly (formerly Lunar) has a new life!

Lunar Lilly squareLittle Lunar came from a home with too many pets.  She was really shy when she first arrived at NCCR, but gradually came out of her shell.  From her family: “We changed her name to Lilly and she responds well to her name change. She eats well, sleeps well, is pretty much house trained she had a few accidents at first but expected.  Lilly is very alert when she sees another dog or cat loves to run from bedroom to kitchen. Me and my wife love her very much,  she fills the emptiness we had after losing our dog in October.  Thank you!”

Lily was adopted in December 2019.

Daisy and her new feline friend!

Daisy still DaisyDarling Daisy arrived at NCCR on 10/19/19 from an overcrowded shelter where her time had run out. She was adopted in November 2019. Her family writes:  “I’m very happy to say that she is doing great. She gets along very well with our other pets. We have two older dogs, but her best friend , is our cat , Kwazi. Their favorite game is playing hide and seek around our couch. Daisy is very good with our grandchildren and with visitors that come to our house. I credit her stay at your foster home, to her being so social.  She is a perfect fit for our family. We hope that our positive words will encourage our friends , that are thinking about adoption, to consider adopting from NCCR.”

End of Year Shelter News!

It has been a wonderful month at the shelter for us and for one dog in particular.  Sammi has gone home!  Sammi, who arrived in 2016 as a pregnant,  almost feral dog had been with us more than 1170 days (3+ years), and finally found what we all hope to be her perfect forever home.   You can read about Sammi here: http://www.caninerescue.org/2017/    Many, many tears were shed by the volunteers and shelter staff over this news.  Sammi had become a shelter favorite of all those who took care of her, socialized her and helped her become the best dog she could be while at NCCR.   We all wish her the very best in her new home.

sam1To add to the good news for 2019 we have increased the number of dogs and pups we can handle due to our expanded foster program. This allowed us to save more puppy mill “cast offs” and take in more local strays from the surrounding area. As a result we have had more than 300 adoptions this year.

The Executive Director of the shelter makes up a holiday poem every few years, and did so again earlier this month before several of the dogs named were adopted.  If you are on the mailing list, you probably have seen this already, but it is worth repeating:

8.504 x 10.9848.504 x 10.984At this point in time little Miss Molly is still hoping for her “furever” home; she greeted me with kisses and cuddles when I was at the shelter today.

All of us, staff, volunteers, dogs and puppies, thank you for your support.  We literally could not do it without your help, be it a donation, an adoption or a simple FB share of one of the NCCR posts that allows others to see what we do.

Have a wonderful holiday, and know that the dogs in our care will be warm, fed, safe and loved.

2020 Rabies Clinics

2020 Rabies Clinics

Free Rabies Immunization Clinic.

SATURDAY, MAY 16, 2020 

from 10:00AM TO 12:00 NOON 

at the Town Barn on Chestnut St., Westfield.  

This clinic is sponsored by NCCR and the Town of Westfield. Dr. Katie Ball will be the attending veterinarian.

Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three months of age and older. All pets must be on a leash or in a cage and pet owners should bring rabies vaccination records for each animal that will be receiving a shot to ensure proper and effective vaccination.

New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat and domesticated ferret over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and county residents are encouraged to be responsible pet owners by having their pets vaccinated. Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes are the common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva and it can enter the body from a bite, scratch, scrape or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system and can cause brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.

For more information about the clinics and rabies in general, click here or contact the Division of Public Health at (716) 753-4481.
