March update:  Morgan and her pal Vinton have come a long way in the last couple weeks.  Their scars are healed and they are feeling much better.  The two are quite reliant on each other and ideally they would be adopted together, but know that is a long shot.  At the very least, Morgan needs to have another friendly dog companion in the household.

Morgan arrived at NCCR on 2/3/23, taken in from an animal cruelty case in Ohio where 80 dogs were found in various states of malnourishment and emaciation, and 40 others were found dead. Morgan is a young adult mixed breed female. Her breed mix is thought to include Labrador Retriever and Husky. She is understandably shy with people, but has shown no signs of aggression. Morgan likely gets along well with most other dogs. She will probably need work on her house training and general obedience skills, but for now the focus is on making a full physical recovery and helping her to adjust to her new life.  More info to come as we get to know her better.

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.

Morgan is kindly sponsored by Diane Mogavero, Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, Lynn Gresham, Melford Swanson, Kathy Keller, David Grayson, David and Nancy DeLand and Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam. Thank you everyone!
