through March

47 Dogs in Rehab

51 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.

Referral Dogs (not in our program)


We provide listings for referral dogs as a service to the community, but we do not screen dogs to determine their suitability for adoption.  We make no representations regarding the accuracy of the information provided by the owners/fosters and we assume no responsibility for the condition or behavior of the dogs.

Ruf Creek Ranch


Ruf Creek Ranch is a no-kill “Placement Sanctuary” located in Smithfield, NC. They are associated with the Johnston County Animal Services, and have a primary goal of rescuing dogs from local animal control shelters. Ruf Creek Ranch gives their rescued dogs the care and attention necessary to help them become more adoptable. At the Ranch, dogs can run, play and learn social skills, and residents of the Ranch remain there until they have found their Forever homes.

Please check the Ruf Creek Ranch website for dogs available for adoption. They have puppies, adult and senior dogs. All are healthy and have been spayed or neutered. Below are just a few of the dogs waiting for new families.
