Please Sponsor or donate and help our precious animal rescues.
Our primary mission is to rescue dogs from kill shelters that use inhumane methods of euthanasia like gas and the heart stick method. Then we keep them until a new home can be found. We need forever homes for our precious rescues and for that, we depend upon caring friends, neighbors, and people from all over the country that have rescued one of our little angels.
Don't buy a pet or breed a pet while others are waiting in shelters for you.
Your love can save a dog's life today.
We live temporarily through what we take, but
we live forever through what we give. --Douglas M.
Will Rogers said, "I consider myself a millionaire because I have a million friends and I believe every one of them would give me a dollar if I asked."
Would you give $1 to become a friend to N.A.B.S. so we can continue to save them from undeserved euthanasia in kill shelters?
Thank you so much for considering adoption first! We strive to place as many safe and healthy pets as possible into loving, forever homes.
We try to match our adoptable rescues with each family whose expectations, personalities, lifestyles and homes best fit that pet’s needs. We care about our rescues emotional well being and look for the family that can best provide for those needs. We encourage you to avail yourself of information about adoption prior to adopting and recommend: Pefinder/Before Adoption
When you come to our mobile adoption site or The Sanctuary to adopt a new
pet, make sure to ask lots of questions about the animals you are interested in. If our volunteer does not know the answer they will be happy to find the answer for you.
You will be able to spend some time with our rescue so you can see how he or she interacts with each of your family members, especially your children. If you have another dog at home, we set up a doggy “Meet and Greet” in order that the dogs can be introduced on neutral territory. This is essential to get things "off on the right paw".
Once it is mutually decided a rescue is a good fit for you and your family you can begin the adoption process by first completing our application. We have
an adoption committee meeting Wednesday of each week. Your vet reference will be checked and you will be emailed by Friday of that week whether approved or declined. Due to policy, we CAN NOT release reasons for declines.
Our adoption fees vary from pet to pet with younger, more popular animals
being set at a higher fee than mature or special needs rescues. Adoption fees help us to recover some of our costs for all our rescues. Each dog is: dewormed; administered vaccines such as Duramune Max 5, Bordatella, and rabies vaccine; heartworm tested, given heartworm and flea prevention; spayed or neutered; and microchipped. Some pets may also receive special
veterinary care if needed! Adoption fees help recirculate funds so we can continue to save more lives.
