NCCR’s daily open hours have been temporarily suspended until further notice, but this does not mean that you can’t still adopt! We have many wonderful dogs waiting to be chosen but we need our volunteers and staff to stay healthy to care for them. So how can you adopt? First, view the all the dogs at If you find a dog or two that interest you, just complete an application (under each dog’s photo). Applications will be processed as usual and visitation will be arranged for approved applicants. Do you have questions? Call 716/326-PAWS or send an email to It’s important to stay safe and be vigilant about your health and those around you. Together we can all make a difference. We look forward to being able to resume our daily open hours as soon as possible!
