Meg arrived at NCCR on 3/27/24, taken in when her family could no longer provide adequate care for her. She is an approximately 2-3-year-old female Australian Cattle Dog. Meg is a little timid with some people, but warms up with some high-pitched sweet talk. She lived with several other dogs and seemed to get along fine with them. She has received a veterinary checkup, was spayed, and has been brought up to date with vaccinations. Meg is a herding breed and will likely do best with a family that can give her plenty of exercise and a job to do. She seems to be house trained, and loves attention and cuddles once she gets to know you.

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.

Meg is sponsored by Donna Hazlett, Lenore Goold, Heath Forster, Roberta Gray, Victor and Gloria Armes, and Ann Odell. Thank you everyone!
