Facts about Tinker

  • Sex: Unknown
  • ID#: 11440490

Tinker is a 7 year old, spayed Miniature Pinscher who needs a home because her owner went into hospice care. She is very overweight and weighs about 20 lbs.  She is a friendly, somewhat shy, dog who gets along with adults, other dogs and cats, but may not do well with younger children.  Tinker (as in Tinker Bell) is looking for a home where both she and her best friend Mickey (also a Miniature Pinscher) can live together.  They currently enjoy sharing a crate together and they’ve been keeping each other company for many years.  Tinker is up to date on her vaccinations and will be getting her microchip and heartworm test on May 1st.  She is a lower energy dog who enjoys going for walks and snuggling with her human once she is comfortable with them. She is also house-trained and not protective of her food or toys. Tinker would enjoy a fenced yard , but it isn’t a requirement. She would be happy to get her exercise with regular walks. Tinker will be getting groomed and photographed soon, so watch for her photos.  If you are willing to open your home and heart to a couple of seniors in need of a good loving home, please consider Tinker and Mickey.

Suggested adoption donation for the pair: $250.00

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.
