Lilah arrived at NCCR on 4/24/24, surrendered when her owner could no longer provide appropriate care for her. She had been somewhat neglected for a while and arrived with overgrown nails, fleas, and skin & coat in poor condition. With a little grooming and special care, Lilah is already starting to look and feel much better! She is a nearly 10-year-old female Chihuahua mix who will be spayed and brought up to date with vet care and vaccinations prior to adoption. Lilah likes to play with toys, will use puppy pads, and gets along well with cats and most other small dogs. She does not seem to know how to walk on a leash yet. Lilah loves people and enjoys being held and cuddled, but can be snippy if startled, and she does not tolerate nail trimming and needs to be muzzled for that. She is well behaved for bathing, though! Lilah would prefer a home without young children, and a family who will be patient and understanding with her while she adjusts to her new home. Check out how determined this little sweetie is:

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.

Lilah is kindly sponsored by former NCCR Resident Romeo and his family, Virginia Hemmings, Suzanne, Tillie Mae and Mimzie in memory of Bron Bron, and Dave and Nancy Nuzzo. Thank you everyone!
