Lester and Linus-Adopted!

Lester & Linus arrived at NCCR in early June, surrendered from a home that could no longer care for them. They are 11 month old recently neutered brothers. Their breed mix is thought to include Bichon Frisé and Shi Tzu. Lester and Linus arrived very timid and under-socialized, but they love to be held and enjoy cuddling, and they are starting to really come out of their shells! They will need work on house training; the neutering should help with their urges to urine mark. They have been doing pretty well keeping their kennel clean during the day at the shelter. Lester and Linus are working on learning how to walk on a leash. These two affectionate boys would love to find a home together!

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.

Linus and Lester are kindly sponsored by John and Susan Harrell, Jay and Kimberly Bishop, Kathleen Hatt, Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, Peg Payne, Paula E. Stearn, Don and Joanne Pochopin, Lynn Gresham, Melford Swanson, Kathy Keller, David Grayson, Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam and Nancy DeLand. Thank you everyone!
