Our thanks..

Our thanks.. Bob Evans who recently donated 15% of their September 26th sales (from all who presented the Bob Evans Flyer when they dined at the Vineyard Drive restaurant) to NCCR. Thank you also to all who dined out that day! We could not care for the number of dogs that we do each year without assistance from so many others.

Canned Food Drive!

food fundraiserNCCR was recently thrilled to receive the  news that Dave Schmeh of Final Communications  Computer Repair and Service on Central Avenue in Silver Creek had organized a canned food drive in support of the shelter.  He put an ad in a local paper as well as numerous posts on his Facebook page asking all his friends and customers to  donate canned dog food.   Canned food is one of those  big expenses the shelter can’t always afford to spend money on.   Dave collected over 500 cans of food for us, plus treats, detergent and dog toys!  He is pictured here with the newest addition to his household, little Lexi, along with just some of the donations he collected.  Dave and Lisa Smith adopted Lexi earlier this month from NCCR.   We thank Dave, his friends and the customers of Final Communications for their overwhelming support and        generosity. The dogs all add their “woofs” too!

Wheatley, Whitney, Wembley & Waldo have all found homes!

Wheatley, Whitney, Wembley & Waldo have all found homes!

Whether human or animal, life starts in all different places and varying social classes. For some, there is a warm wonderful setting, excitement and a life ahead filled with joy and love. A hospital setting with all the comforts of home, family waiting to welcome a new life, gentle hands immediately holding a tiny infant, or for a puppy, in some cases, it’s a whelping box, with warm lights, fuzzy blankets, heating pads and a family right by their side to cuddle with that little ball of fur.

  All too often the opposite happens, as in the case of these four little pups. They were born in a house with no heat, no electric, and no one to pick them up and play with them. Momma fed them the best that she could but they spent their first 11 weeks in a crate under a bed. They were fed once a day as they got older. Puppies need to be given worm medicine starting at a very young age and of course these kids did not receive it and between that and a poor diet their little tummies became bigger and bigger until they looked ready to explode. Their bed was also the potty area as well as where they played.  When they arrived at NCCR, they were completely caked in their own feces.

A nice warm bath, a bowl of food, worm medicine and a very large place with toys to play with and these four little unwanted puppies are as happy as can be. They love attention and they love to be held and loved. So from a very bad beginning to a safe haven is a start but now they are looking for that special someone that will make them feel wanted for the rest of their lives. Do you have room in your home and in your heart for a pup that needs to forget the past and become your best friend? Did I mention that they are very cute??

A “Major” Change *UPDATE* Major has been adopted!

A “Major” Change *UPDATE* Major has been adopted!

Dogs depend on humans for their food, water, medical care, companionship and love. One should not take on the responsibility of a pet if they are unable or unwilling to provide for their dog’s basic needs.

This is his story.

He got into the garbage. They put him in the basement. They stopped feeding him.

Major skinny

He is now in foster care. They do feed him, play with him, love him. He is thriving.

He is lucky. He was rescued.

Major foster family

Major is a 3 yr. old Tennessee Walker mix. He is wonderful people of all ages and other dogs. He would be perfect for that person or family that isn’t gone for long hours as he loves to be by your side.  Give us a call at 326-PAWS if you’d like to meet him!

Our heartfelt thank you to Major’s rescuers and his foster families.
