Gala arrived at NCCR on 8/6/22, pulled from an overcrowded shelter to give her a better chance. She is a spayed female Husky, approximately 1-2 years old, weighing around 50 lbs. Gala has a lovely singing voice and likes to use it! She seems to be very friendly with people, but has not been friendly toward other dogs her size. She seems less bothered by smaller dogs, but would likely do best as an only pet. Gala usually keeps a clean kennel, but occasionally has accidents overnight, so she may need more work on house training in a new home. She loves to go for walks, but is a strong puller, so she will need ongoing work on her leash manners.

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.

Gala is sponsored by Leanne DiNicola, Daniel Courtine in honor of Shiloh, Mo and Andrew Broadbent in memory of Benny, Amy Courtine in memory of Izzy, Joel and Rebecca Cuthbert, Peg Payne, Nancy DeLand, Kristen Streeper, Tim and Diane Eades and by Meg Thering in honor of her friend Ariella Ellias.
