Mabel is an approximately 5 year old spayed female Rat Terrier. She needs to find a new home since she is causing distress to the resident senior cat in her household. We’re told that Mabel is house trained if she is kept on a schedule and has her food and water put away at bedtime, is crate trained, and can be left on her own with free access to the home. She gets along with most other dogs, and even with friendly and playful cats, but seems not to get along with cats that would rather not interact with her. Mabel does not like to share food with other pets, so will need to be fed separately to avoid problems. She is used to being allowed on the furniture, and loves to be held and sit on her person’s lap. Mabel enjoys going for rides in the car, and is friendly and playful with just about every person she has met. She will alert you to visitors and seems to have a true terrier personality!
“Mabel is a sweet, smart, cute, affectionate girl, always wanting to satisfy and be with her owner.”
Appointments to meet Mabel will be made for approved applications!

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.

Mabel is sponsored by Lenore Goold, Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam, Heath Forster, Roberta Gray, Victor and Gloria Armes, Ann Odell and by Meg Thering for Susan and Kevin Felch. Thank you everyone!
