NSDR is comprised of a network of volunteers and foster homes; there is no physical shelter. While awaiting adoption, NSDR animals live in the care of trusted foster families where they receive the attention and love needed to prepare them for placement in permanent homes.
While our primary focus is dogs, we do rescue cats and kittens locally, assisting animal control, law enforcement and private citizens with removal or rescue of the animals and re-homing. This activity actually costs us money, since we will not release cats or kittens until they have been fully vetted and altered, and we cannot charge much for an adoption fee. Financial support for this work is needed and greatly appreciated.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." - Gandhi
