Testimonials from people that have worked with us:

A note for a prospective NNR parents. I want to highly recommended NNR for anyone who’s considering adopting! The process went very smooth for my husband and myself and our advocate was behind us 110%! Be patient and remember your 1st choice may not happen due to the process but I promise your new “Newfie” is waiting patiently. The support after the adoption has been truly amazing from many involved and we really appreciate it. Please Adopt and support NNR in all ways possible. ~Benjamin's new Mom

Today we brought home our newest family member, Gracie, now Alexandra. She is everything we were told to expect and more. It takes hard work from caring dedicated people to help families through the difficult process of surrendering their dog. Find a foster family to help prepare this dog for a new family, take care of any medical or behavioral issues that the dog might have, and then find just the right family to love and care for the dog. Everyone I spoke with was looking out for the best interest of the dog and my family. I want to thank you all, Gracie is a wonderful sweetheart and we're so glad to have her as our baby. ~Thank you from Gracie's new family!

My husband and I had adopted 2 pups in the past from different shelters. During the process there was no interview, no questions about our family situation, nothing. I will say at first it seemed like a huge process to adopt Linus but I wouldn't change a thing. I appreciate the process, it means you care very much about each and every pup. It means that through this process the pup will benefit by the thorough household check and personal interview. It's important that if a pup, for whatever reason, needs to find a new home they find the right home. They deserve to find his/her furever loving family. ~From Linus' furever family

Yesterday we posted an update about our little buddy Murphy, the eight week old puppy who will have his hind leg amputated in two weeks. Here he is just being a normal puppy doing puppy things. He’s unaware of the challenges ahead as he gets the treatment he needs to overcome the damage to his leg. We are confident that he is going to thrive on three legs. But the surgery is expensive and he will need continued medical support including physical therapy. Please help us to raise the funds required to get him through the surgery and on to a healthy, full life. Any amount is a great help! And please be sure to love, share and comment on this post to help us spread the word. You can also donate through our website if you prefer: petlover.petstablished.com/online_donations/organization/2394244?pet_id=1335477. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We love our community! 💜💜💜 ...

This adorable little nugget is Hauke, a 10 week old little man that was diagnosed by his vet with a grade 6 heart murmur. Unfortunately his people were unable to care for his medical needs, so he found his way to us. He’s going to a cardiologist in mid-July, the first available appointment. Once we get a more official diagnosis from the specialist we’ll be able to make some decisions as to this little nuggets future. In the interim, he’s enjoying the good life with his foster family, and you get to enjoy his adorable pictures and videos!!! ❤️❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
