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.

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).

Aug 26 was National Dog Day.  Mister Rogers was celebrating in the doorway with the ribbons hanging over his silly head! Mister came to NGRR in early June.  He will be 9years old in Late Sept.  He is your happy go lucky boy, loves everyone & everything.  Very curious and wants to be involved in all that is going on around him. He makes me think of Mister Rogers so we added that to his name. Mister has lived with severe hip and elbow dysplasia for many years.  We have him on good med support now to ease his pain and increase his mobility.  We walk every day.  By no means does he want to miss out on his favorite going out and about.  Loves to go in the car, even if it is just for a ride.  Loves toys, and playing ball is great fun too.  Loves kids of all ages.  What can I say, Mister Rogers is a great boy and will make anyone very happy.  He does have significant health issues though. NGRR does take in our share of senior dogs, some will be adopted and some won't living their lives out in their forever foster home.  Peachy is also a Special Needs dog we have listed.  Seizure activity, that is a senior.  We love them, and do the best we can for them, making them as comfortable as we can.  We are very grateful to those of you who donate to NGRR so we can do this for these very special seniors.  Deserving their last years comfortable and safe. They will always give you a wet kiss of thanks.

If you are interested in any of our dogs please contact your Area Coordinator, call our Hot Line Voice Mail 650 615 6810, or email info@ngrr.org Thanks, Mister Rogers

 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.

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.
