Born in a foster home on March 9th, this is one of the litter of the “Cheers” puppies! Mom Meeka’s photo is included, we believe she may be a Norfolk Terrier or mix thereof; father is unknown. Meeka weighs in the 30-35 lb. range.

The beautiful puppies have been lovingly raised and we are now taking applications.  A meet and greet will be set up for the puppy that you have applied for AFTER your application has been approved. **PLEASE NOTE, the puppies are not at the shelter, they are in foster care. There will likely be a lot of interest, but please be sure that you can provide a home for a lifetime.  Remember puppies are A LOT of work..they are not housetrained, they chew, they bite with their little needle teeth and get into everything.  If you do not have the time, energy and patience to devote to their needs and training, then it is not the right time to adopt.  They each deserve a commitment from their new family for the duration of their life.

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.
