Who We Are

We are a small rescue, but growing everyday. We are located in Massachusetts, on the North Shore in Peabody. We started in 1999 as a Beagle rescue and in June, 2001 we changed to an all breed rescue for dogs and cats. We work very hard educating the public on animal issues through our Humane Education Society. It is our pleasure to serve and care for the animals who come into our rescue, as well as making a few human friends along the way.

Adopting a friend

We have many loving animals for adoption. We do ask that people looking to adopt a dog or cat own their homes, or have permission from their landlords. We also ask that they fill out our adoption questionairre, conduct a home visit, and provide us with a vet reference. Our cats are all tested for FIV and Leukemia, and both dogs and cats are brought up to date with shots, wormed, given their first heartguard and advantage flea treatments, as well as spayed or neutered prior to, or immediatly after adoption depending on age. Every animal you adopt through NBAR goes home with a care packet with lots of goodies and services to try!
