Snowball and Russ came to NCCR together.  They are approximately 2 years old and seem to be pretty friendly!  Snowball weighs in around 19 lbs.  and Russ just 12 lbs.  At first we thought they would need a home together, but as we have gotten to know them, we feel they will do well in separate homes.  Snowball is the “boss” and more animated of the two.  She does this cute little wave thing when she stands on her back legs.  Russ is adorably sweet and we’ve found that he does great in the car too!  He is a little timid of men in hats, but if the hat comes off, no problem! They enjoy going for walks and spending lots of time with people. Russ will likely get along with most other friendly dogs. He also loves to play ball. Snowball is more selective about her friends than Russ is, and she tends to be reactive to other dogs that are very lively or noisy. So if you think you might be interested in one or both, fill out an application!

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.

Snowball and Russ are kindly sponsored by Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron. Thank you!
