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).

UPDATE, Beautiful Golden Pair Avail, Celeste and Julie 
Two Bundles of Golden Love. How sweet is this?  Celeste, English Cream, and Julie are both 10yr.   They have lived together forever.  Very bonded.  We want to adopt them together.  Sadly their owner is dying, she wants very much for her girls to go to a loving home and has asked for our help.  They are in foster care in Sonoma County.

Celeste:Picture this.....You are just coming home, maybe you've had a hard day or you are feeling low....You open your door and there is Celeste singing and dancing for you.  She is singing songs of love and delight.  How can that not make you feel better?  Instant happiness.

Julie:Loves to play ball and fetch.  Loves her snuggles and gives lots of TLC too.  Julie has some mild hip pain and a heart arrhythmia.  Taking some meds.  Going to the vet next week for a check up.

Please contact your Area Coordinator if you have one, if not call the hot line 650 615 6810.

 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.
