Beautiful Ivy arrived at NCCR on 12/4/21, pulled from an overcrowded shelter to give her a better chance. We are told that she was a favorite of the workers at the other shelter! Ivy is thought to be around 4 years old and weighs about 60 pounds. She is guessed to be an Australian Shepherd and/or Border Collie/Retriever mix. Ivy can be a little nervous around strangers, but she warms up once she has a bit of time to get to know them. She does bark when she is excited or frustrated. Ivy loves to go for walks and enjoys being outside. She would prefer a home without young children, where she can get plenty of exercise and activity every day. She seems to be house trained, as she keeps her kennel clean.

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 adoptions@caninerescue.org. 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.

Ivy is kindly sponsored by Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, Lynn Gresham, Melford Swanson, Kathy Keller, David Grayson, David and Nancy DeLand and Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam. Thank you everyone!
