NCBR Fun Facts!
2018 is NCBR’s 20th year in operation!
NCBR served 132 dogs in 2017.
NCBR is committed to saving the most vulnerable dogs, including those who are ill, injured, senior or at immediate risk of shelter euthanasia.
The average cost of rehabilitating an adult dog and making it ready for adoption is about $1100 (almost three times an adult dog’s adoption fee).
The average yearly cost of each senior dog in NCBR’s care is over $2000 (over 13 times their adoption fee).
17% of the dogs NCBR impacted in 2017 were senior dogs.
Boxers are the 4th most common breed in American shelters. (This is a point that may be compelling to people who are not interested in boxers, but do understand the importance of making shelter space available for other animals.)
NCBR is operated entirely by volunteers, so donations directly support the care of our dogs.
NCBR is entirely foster-based. All of the dogs in our care live in homes like family members.
