13 Dogs Adopted

Thank you for stopping by to see the dogs ready for adoption. If this is your first visit to our website and are interested in adopting, you will want to first visit our Adoption Info page to see our adoption process and complete an application. If you are interested in meeting some of our available dogs or if you would like to talk to us about volunteer opportunities, come see us at an upcoming Meet and Greet event.

There are typically between 35 and 45 dogs in our program at any given time – some will stay with us longer than others as they overcome their medical or behavioral challenges. The costs to run our rescue are well over $200,000 per year. Click here to learn how you can support NRGRR rescue, rehab, and adopt these dogs in need. Visit our Blarney's Fund page to read about some of our dogs who came into our program with serious medical issues and learn how we helped them recover.

Note: You must be a resident of North Carolina to adopt one of our dogs. If you live more than three hours from the Raleigh-Durham area, adopting from us may be challenging.

Reminder for approved applicants: To apply for one or more available dogs, contact your applications advisor. Don't know who your advisor is? Email NRGRRapplications@hotmail.com.
