Nellie arrived with Clover  on 4/12/24, taken in when their owner could no longer provide for them. They are approximately 1-year-old female mixed breeds. Both girls are a little timid and have not had much training, so they need a family who will be patient and understanding with them while they learn and adjust. They can be adopted together or separately.

The girls may be cat friendly as they were curious about the cat, they weren’t aggressive.

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.

Nellie and Clover are kindly sponsored by Jellybean (former NCCR resident) and Doodlebug Parker, Diane Mogavero, Suzanne, Tillie Mae and Mimzie in memory of Bron Bron, Melford Swanson, David Grayson, David and Nancy DeLand. Thank you everyone!
