Blizzard arrived at NCCR on 7/28/21, after being found stray and going unclaimed by his owner. Blizzard is an adult male Husky. He has a tendency to urine-mark, although this will likely diminish with some training now that he is neutered. Blizzard is friendly toward people, but he is a bit stressed by the shelter environment. He is not always tolerant of things he doesn’t like and may give a rough warning grab to tell you to back off; he requires a home with an experienced dog owner that will be able to manage his behavior and work on training with him. A home without young children, cats, or small dogs is also required. Blizzard is very “talkative”, typical of most Huskies. He loves to go for walks and enjoys being outdoors.

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 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.
