Kelsey, mom to the “K” litter,  arrived at NCCR on 7/3/21 after spending some time in a foster home while caring for her puppies. She was initially pulled from an overcrowded shelter to give her and her pups a better chance at finding a forever home. Kelsey is a female mixed breed, weighing about 45 pounds, thought to be around 1 year old.  She loves to play, chew on her toys, and get lots of attention. Kelsey may be house trained, and she is learning to walk on a leash. She really needs a family that will not leave her home alone for long, as she does have some separation anxiety, and she would prefer to have a canine companion. Kelsey does not enjoy a lot of noise and commotion, so a quieter home with a predictable routine is preferred.  This girl is a sweetie, she just needs the right situation to thrive!

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.

Kelsey is kindly sponsored by Barbara Fox Nellis, Dave and Nancy Nuzzo, Lisa and Jason Weaver, Dawn Tunstall and Mark Zafuto, Barbara Nodes-Nokoski, Dawn Gillian and by Meg Thering in memory Ariel, beloved dog of Marla and Matt Abrams.
