Rescue a dog,  Foster a dog, Don't buy a dog from a Puppy Mill!!!
A rescue volunteer created this wonderful video about  how many dogs there are in shelters across the US, and encouraging people to foster or rescue a shelter dog to show how happy families become when these dogs  find a loving new home. 

NGRR encourages getting your new dog from a shelter, a breed rescue group (like NGRR) or a reputable breeder.  We ask you not to buy dogs in pet stores or from backyard brokers becasue there is a reasonable chance that they came from puppy mills, where the dogs are raised in abominal conditions at the lowest cost.   The retail pet stores and puppy brokers, then offer them to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a healthy, pure bred dog at a bargain price.   Buying from pet stores or backyard brokers only encourages the puppy mills to breed more dogs.

HELP FIND THE CANCER CURE FOR DOGS

If you had a dog that died of cancer, you know how sad and powerless it made you feel. Fight back!!!  If you or someone you know has a dog with cancer of any kind, go the TGen website to find out how to submit a blood  sample.   They are seeking 2000 samples for  a hereditary DNA study . TGen will cover the cost of shipping and the blood analysis, plus will allow you $10 for the cost for the drawing the sample.   (However your vet may do it for free knowing it is going to research).

Bear & Riley, Bonded Pair
Update 10/21: YouTube Video!

Bear and Riley possess what we all love about Goldens; they are beautiful, affectionate, loyal, sociable, playful, and fun-loving. These bonded 11 year old males love to be around people of all ages, especially in the kitchen. They greet other dogs with a maximum of tail-wags and a minimum of negative woofs. Their relationships with cats is less cordial but of unknown seriousness.

Riley loves walks - long or short - and he especially likes splashing in the water at the beach.  Bear is happy to join on any outing, but becomes breathless when excited and sometimes has to curtail his walks. They play together well and love romping on the lawn, but only for a few minutes at a time. Mostly they entertain themselves wandering the yard, sleeping in the sun, and dreaming golden dreams.

Bear and Riley must have been star pupils in obedience class at some point as both are well behaved and respond well to basic commands. They easily adjusted to their foster home and established routines to everyone's satisfaction. Bear and Riley have separate beds and sleep quietly in the house at night. Occasionally one will ask to go out in the early morning. 

Bear and Riley lost their prior home for no fault of their own. They look forward to finding a new home where they can share their sunset years with a family they love, and will love them in exchange.

Please contact your Area Coordinator if you are interested in meeting Bear & Riley, or fill out an Adoption Application!

Thank you!

 Fosters are our most important people. Fosters take in surrendered dogs who need a safe home right away, they make sure vet visits and shots are done, and other wise care for the dog as if it were their own while in their custody.  Our fosters are compassionate, giving people, willing to invest their time and talent to help a dog in need.

If you are interested in becoming an NGRR foster, see our online foster application . One of our members will contact you and arrange an interview.

 
Click on any dog image below to see more information. If you would like to look into adoption, please submit an Online Adoption Form . If you see a dog here that interests you, add the name and number of the dog in the comments section. However if you don't see a dog for you here, please still submit the application because our inventory of dogs changes frequently, and the best dog for you may not yet be on this page. You can also help us find loving new homes for these dogs by going to our On Line Donation form.
