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

We could not let the NNR Photo Calendar Contest come to an end this evening without a warm and loving mention to the contestants that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Each and every one of these dogs hold a very special place in the hearts of the friends and family that loved them. Thank you so very much for shining their light with all of us. ... See MoreSee Less

Interview with Kabob🐾 Interview with Kabob - The Resilient and Joyful Newfie-Aussie Mix 🐶📍 Location: Delaware🎉 Let's dive right in, Kabob! You've had quite the journey, and we're thrilled to introduce you to potential forever families. Tell us about yourself, buddy.Kabob: Hey there, folks! I'm Kabob, a spirited 9-month-old puppy, and I'm living the dream right here in Delaware. I'm a Newfoundland-Aussie mix, and let me tell ya, it's the best of both worlds – I've got those adorable Aussie ears and the Newfie charm! 😁I have lived an exciting life and met lots of people! I hurt my legs and a lot of humans helped me and one time I got to go on an airplane! I’m much better now and looking for a special human or humans to call my family. 🏋️‍♂️ So, what do you enjoy doing in your free time, Kabob?Kabob: Oh, I'm all about cuddles and toys, especially tennis balls! I'm a 70-pound bundle of happy. You know what really makes my tail wag? Playtime with my canine foster brother. We have the best quirky playdates, I tell ya! I also love to share my toys with my humans, watch me throw my toy in the air! Isn’t that the highest throw you have ever seen?🌞 Rain or shine, you seem like a pup who's always up for an adventure. What's your favorite weather?Kabob: Haha, you got it! I'm an all-weather kinda guy. Rain, shine, cloudy days – you name it, I'm up for it, as long as my humans are happy! I enjoy toy time on a rainy day, outdoor romps, sleepy cozy time, walking in the water, whatever you enjoy! Hey watch me throw my toy again! You can look at my bone too. See it? It’s a great bone right? Watch me chew on it, I’m super good at chewing bones. 💪 You've been through some tough times, Kabob, but you've come out strong. How's your health now?Kabob: Thanks for asking! The verdict is in – I get to keep all four of my legs! 🎉 I'm healthy as can be and ready for a forever home.🏡 What kind of home would be the perfect fit for you, Kabob?Kabob: Well, I'd love a home with a playful dog buddy or a human who's up for some epic playtime. A fenced yard would be paw-some! As for cats, I haven't been officially tested, but I think with the right introduction, I could be friends. I would definitely like to play and chase, I hear cats don’t like that much but I’m open to learning a better way with a patient and savvy human. Just call me a quick learner! 😃❤️ You're known for your affectionate nature. Tell us about your love for people.Kabob: Oh, I'm a certified cuddler! Cozy beds and affection are my jam. I love picking out my favorite toys and having a blast with them. But what really sets my tail wagging is being part of my humans' daily activities. I'm all about that bonding time! Did that toy just move? Hang on, lemme go check. 🎾 Any special requests for your forever home?Kabob: Yes, please! A big toy box would be paw-fect. I want to have all the toys at my disposal! And if you've got kids aged 8 and older, I'm all smiles for them too. I'm just a friendly, social pup.😇 You've shown great manners at the vet, Kabob. Anything else you'd like to share with potential adopters?Kabob: You bet! I'm a smarty-pants and a fast learner. I'm well-behaved and always ready to learn new tricks. Oh, and I'm good with other dogs who want a buddy, so if you have a furry friend, that's cool with me!Kabob, it's been a pleasure chatting with you today. Your resilience, joy, and boundless enthusiasm are truly inspiring. We hope you find your forever family soon! 🐾❤️ #AdoptKabob #ResilientPup #ForeverHomeBoundApproved applicants reach out or edit your application to reflect your interest in Kabob!
