Banjo arrived at NCCR on 9/24/22, pulled from an overcrowded shelter that ran out of room for him. He is an approximately 9 month old neutered male mixed breed. Banjo weighs around 30 pounds, but will likely get a little bigger over the next 3-6 months. We’re told he rides pretty well in the car once he settles in. He is very friendly with the people he has met so far, and is not bothered by the other dogs around him at the shelter. Banjo likely will need more work on house training, as he has accidents overnight.

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 immediately 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 It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.  Completing an application does not commit you to adopt, but please be sure that you are serious about adopting and have the time and patience to raise a puppy before you apply.

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.

Banjo is sponsored by Bob & Dawn Hunt in memory of Laurie Robbins. He is also sponsored by Meg Thering for Susan and Kevin Felch as a thank you for watching Deja!
