Ginger arrived at NCCR on 9/9/23, pulled from an overcrowded shelter that ran out of room for her. She was initially surrendered by her frail, elderly owner because she was a trip hazard. Ginger is an approximately 7-year-old spayed female mixed breed. Her breed mix is guessed to include Poodle and Miniature Schnauzer. She weighs just 20 lbs. and is full-grown. We’re told that Ginger gets along with other dogs, as well as cats, and that she is very friendly with people. Ginger reportedly suffered a seizure prior to coming to NCCR, but she has responded well to medication and has not had any more episodes since then. From one of the volunteers:  “If Ginger could, she would sit on a lap foever!”

More information to come as we get to know her better.

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.
