Sirius & Rhys-Adopted!!!

Sirius and Rhys arrived at NCCR on 7/3/21, pulled from an overcrowded shelter to give them a better chance.  They came together and have been together since they arrived and are now a bonded pair so we are searching for a home for them together.  They are neutered male mixed breeds, thought to be approximately 2 years old.  They are sweet boys, a little timid at first, but warm up quickly.  They do keep tabs on whatever is going on at the shelter and like many small dogs will bark when they feel it’s necessary!   They would do best in a home without young children and with a predictable routine.

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.

Sirius and Rhys are currently sponsored by: Roberta Gray, Debra Beatty, Arlene DeJesus, Thomas and Elizabeth Tarpley, Amy Schmidt, Bob and Karen Davis, Jerry and Marilyn Bertges in memory of Mandy, Bob and Trudy Sensel, and Bob and Lorna Barrie. Thank you everyone!
