Oregano is an approximately 6 month old lab mix. She is such a friendly girl and did so well at a recent event she attended.  She’s still a pup, so there is work to be done, but she’s doing great in her foster home.

From Oregano’s foster mom:  Oregano is such a good dog. She only had one accident shortly after we arrived at my home on Saturday, otherwise that has been going really well. She is still puppy so she does puppy naughty things, like my flip flops, fake crocs, sandals, socks, and getting things off the counter, but she is doing really good with being told no and drops what she has, though she really loves the flower pot (the thicker temp ones flowers come in from the greenhouse) she stole when I was doing my planting over the weekend. She is coming along good with understanding “sit” and she does “stay” really good, sometime too good because she won’t move. But those beautiful brown eyes, you just go to her and give her hugs and kisses. Still not sure how she really would be with cats. I do have 2 but they stay away from her as much as possible and I block off areas where they can go but she cannot. Though, there are outside cats around and because they usually just sit there she ignores them. Barking is at a minimum, usually only when I tie her out and come back inside for a few minutes. When we go for a walk all the other dogs in the neighborhood bark at us as we go by, but when they walk by the house she doesn’t bark at them. 

Here she is at a recent event, she’s a beauty!

Oregano is in foster care; meet and greets will be arranged for approved applicants!

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 adoptions@caninerescue.org. 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.
