Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
NBAR is solely supported by public donations; we are a recognized 501c3 non-profit organization. All donations made to our rescue our tax deductible and go directly to the care of our animals. We are an all-volunteer based organization.
Animals for adoption come from owner surrenders and occasionally from other shelters in need. All animals accepted are screened for health and temperament; they are given complete veterinary care including, but not limited to, vaccinations, testing, and sterilization. We are dedicated to provide high quality medical care for our animals. The animals are treated like our own.
NBAR is a community organization that seeks to provide adoption counseling and follow-up, training, education about responsible pet ownership, the importance of sterilization, and humane feral cat management. We also operate a year-round food pantry to help struggling families feed their cats and dogs.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
