Our Dogs

2022 Statistics

through April
60 Dogs Rescued

57 Dogs in Rehab

38 Dogs Adopted

Thank you for stopping by to see the dogs ready for adoption. 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.

We Need Fosters!

Please consider fostering a NRGRR dog. We need people to foster dogs when they come in until adoption, we need temp fosters to fill in for fosters as needed, and we need permanent fosters for our dogs that are not adoptable.

Contact Mimi Suddath at for more information and help get a dog started on his or her next journey.

Referral Dogs (not in our program)

We provide listings for referral dogs and other North Carolina dog rescue organizations 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 rescues, and we assume no responsibility for the condition or behavior of the dogs.

Jordy and Ben Lee at Second Chance 

Jordy (7 yrs old, 65 lbs) and Ben Lee (10 yrs old, 60 lbs) are searching for their forever family! These two are lifelong buddies (we suspect that Ben Lee is Jordy's father!) and need each other to live their best life so they are only looking for a home that’s enthusiastic about welcoming them both together. These cuties are thought to be corgi/golden retriever mixes. Their hobbies include napping, sniffing, and strolling around. They love going on outings and do great at restaurants/bars/offices. Wherever they go, they are sure to be the main attraction with their adorable twinning style! They would love an all-female family or a family with a man that is very patient and will allow them time to adjust. They would do well in a home with other dogs and older kids. They are looking for a cat-free home! If you have two corgi shaped holes in your heart; check out their full bios at and fill out an application!
