The morality of a nation can be judged
by the way a society treats their animals.

Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue, Inc. ( NCCR ) is a non-profit rescue group formed to help the neediest dogs and puppies in our area — the strays, the orphaned, the abandoned.

Our Mission Is…

  • To rescue and provide sanctuary for stray and abandoned dogs and puppies and do our best to secure for each of them permanent, loving, responsible homes.
  • To promote respect and compassion for all creatures through humane education.
  • To reduce pet overpopulation by increasing public awareness of the need to spay and neuter companion animals.
  • To maintain and operate a shelter for dogs and puppies.

NCCR is a no-kill shelter. If we are unable to find a home for a dog, we work with other shelters to place that dog in a home. Euthanasia is only a consideration if a dog is terminally ill or violent.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations made to NCCR are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. All proceeds from donations go strictly toward the care of our dogs. We are a volunteer-run group and rely solely upon donations as we receive no government funding.

We’re here to help you form a lifelong relationship with a friend and provide a life that, for some dogs, has never been known.
