About Our Rescue Group:

NCSR is a non profit breed rescue group. We take in shelties of all ages from shelters and owner turn-ins. We are not a shelter, all our rescues live in foster homes and are evaluated for temperament. Shelties loose their homes for many reasons; moving, new baby, owner can no longer care for it are among the most common. Our goal is to place the dog in a new home where it will be loved, cared for and will live out the rest of it's life.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our shelties can be seen by appointment at his/her foster home. Contact Linda at 410-515-7029 if you see a sheltie on our website that you would like to meet. An application and home visit are required before adopting.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is (normally) $300.00. All our dogs are vet checked, altered, up to date on shots. Some of our dogs may require a fenced yard. We do not place in homes with electronic fences. Puppies (under 12 months) are $400.00. We have a Senior to Senior Adoption program, with a discounted adoption fee for those who would like to adopt a senior sheltie.
An application, home visit and adoption contract are required for every adoption. Please visit our website at for more information.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
