Want to start out each day with a smile? Athena is the champion of dog smiles! She is a small Shepherd mix, we guess to be 4ish years old and weighing about 30 pounds. She and Astrid (also available for adoption) were dropped off with a litter of 8 puppies. It’s apparent that Athena has had more than her share of puppies, but that’s all behind her now. Athena is friendly and sooo sweet. She is a best friend to Astrid who is much shyer than she is.
If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an Adoption Application. *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you. If you have a question, please email your question to email@example.com. It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.
We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.
*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.
