We at the NCSPCA would like to bring to your attention an urgent need for adopters or fosters for six of our long-term dogs. These dogs, through no fault of their own, continue to get passed by while their friends come and go. These are not "bad" dogs. These are dogs who need someone to love, someone to trust, and someone to give them a second chance in life. Although we care for each and every animal like they are our own, we know that life at the shelter pales in comparison to life in a real home. These dogs deserve more. They deserve a real life ... in a real home ... with a real family. And they are counting on us to help them get there.
All of these dogs have been sponsored by a very generous donor who believes in them too, so, their adoption fees are waived and there is no cost to the adopter. For 4 of these dogs - Bear, Brandy, Cocoa, and Roxie - the NCSPCA will pay for professional training for them and their new owners. If you cannot adopt, please consider fostering. A short-term commitment will make a lifetime of difference for these dogs. You can see some terrific photos of these dogs on our Facebook webpage!
Our featured pet this week is Roxie, a young Labrador Retriever/Staffordshire Terrier-mix who came to us terribly undersocialized and afraid. Roxie is cautious around new people and needs some time to become comfortable with you; once she does, you will find that she has a goofy, sweet, fun-loving side that is positively endearing. Roxie would benefit from a home with experienced dog owners, who can provide the structure and leadership she needs to help her become the best companion she can be.
