When you have a rough past and have been let down by humans, it can take a while for you to learn to trust again. That’s how it has been for Prince, but he is coming along and is ready to find his forever home.   He is a quirky, high energy dog, but once he trusts you, he is eager to please and will work even for very tiny treats! Prince has been attending training sessions with one of the NCCR volunteers and has done very well.   Any potential adopter would need to be willing to come to the shelter to meet Prince and spend several visits with him. We are sure that someone out there will see Prince’s potential and make the time commitment to get to know him.  He loves walks and especially loves playing ball in the yards.  Prince would love to be your one and only and will be your devoted companion!

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.

Prince is sponsored by Leanne DiNicola, Julie Rabbit, Karen Larkin, Sandra Pavlock, Keith and Heidi Fowler, Joe and Kate Greulich in honor of Sam and Sarge, Kayme Crowell, David Grayson, Anne Odell, Bob and Trudy Sensel and Melford Swanson. Thank you everyone!
