Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
NEBTR’s single priority in Rescue is to serve the needs of the individual dog in our care. While many loving homes, individuals & families apply to adopt rescue dogs, our placement process is intended to supply the Dog with a home €suitable to meets its individual needs. Rescue volunteers also receive the same screening procedures as do our adopters.
NEBTR does not buy OR sell dogs.
There IS an Adoption fee for a dog and it USUALLY depends upon age & health/vet care requirements of Rescued dogs. Adoption fees are in place to defer the veterinary costs for all of the dogs in our care. All Veterinary records known to NEBTR will accompany each dog upon completed Adoption Agreement, along with a record for services rendered while in our care. Our adoption fee schedule is as follows:
TBD Puppies up to 6 months
$600 Puppies 6 months – 2 years
$500 2 yrs – 4 yrs
$450 5 yrs – 7 yrs
TBD Over 8 years based on health & behavior
$650 2 dogs placed together (depending on age and health)
Our FIRST & PRIMARY goal is to provide the best home possible for each dog so they will never have to come into rescue or a shelter again. Placement is made based upon the needs of each dog & the opportunity offered by an applicant's home.
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.
