Who We Are

NECR is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to coonhound welfare. Our mission is to educate people about the coonhound breed and the suitability of coonhounds as pets. We rescue coonhounds from high-kill shelters in the south and midwest, and provide vetting and rehoming in New England, New York and New Jersey. We also provide referrals to coonhounds available in local shelters and other rescues. Our available dogs are kept in foster homes locally and can be seen by appointment.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption process begins when we receive an email from an applicant providing the information on the Adoption Application page of our website at We work with applciants to make a good match between the dog and the new home. Home visits are customary. It is always possible to meet our dogs before committing to adoption. All of our dogs are vet-checked and healthy to the best of our knowledge.
