Moose is an 8 yr. old Newfoundland mix who has had a bad run of luck. He ended up in a crowded shelter and was scheduled to be euthanized.  Moose was underweight, his fur was matted, his toenails were over grown and he had tapeworms… but he also had a sparkle in his eyes and a friendly smile!  Unfortunately, he also tested positive for heartworms when we took him for an exam, microchipping and vaccination update.  His eyes are perfectly clear and look like the eyes of a puppy and not the senior he is. We’re about to start his treatments and are hopeful that he will come through it well. We’re still working on putting some weight on him, because at 65 lbs., he is on the thin side. He is house-trained and crate trained and gets along with other dogs his size. He hasn’t been around small dogs or cats since we’ve had him, but he can be tested.  He is neutered, likes children and isn’t protective of his food or toys.  He stays off of the furniture and has a gentle soul. He isn’t high energy, but he does like to play if it isn’t too hot outside.  He walks okay on a leash and enjoys a nice stroll where he can wander and sniff. This boy needs a home who will take care of him after he recovers from his heartworm treatment. He would love a fenced yard and a family who will be as loyal to him as he will be to them.

Suggested adoption donation is $150.00.

 

About Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue (NNKCR) was formed by five people who had a dream that one day all adoptable dogs in Lancaster County would find loving homes.

To accomplish this, we do three things:
Rescue dogs
Rehabilitate dogs
Re-home dogs

NNKCR is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dog rescue group. We provide emergency foster care for homeless dogs, veterinary care for dogs in our care and find forever homes for homeless dogs. NNKCR is an all-volunteer organization, and 100% of all funds donated go toward our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We take advantage of local events sponsored by businesses such as PetSmart, PetCo, Subaru, Verizon and Tractor Supply Company, as well as local fund raisers put on by rescue groups. We are also happy to arrange meet and greets with people who would like to see a dog they saw on our website or at an adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

All prospective adopters contact the group via our website and are required to fill out an adoption form. Volunteers check references and do a home visit. A "meet and greet" is arranged if other family members or pets are involved.
Adoption fees are generally $250.00 for dogs 6 months to 7 years; $150.00 for dogs over 7 years. If a puppy is adopted, the adoption fee is $450.00, but $200 of that is refunded once we have documentation that the animal has been altered. All adult dogs are altered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and tested for heartworm. If the adoption does not work out, NNCKR requires that the dog be returned to us.
