Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue Inc.


Meet Nanook! He is 6 1/2 years old and one of the nicest dogs! He's medium in size, super friendly well behaved and really enjoys being with people. We are told that he was housetrained and has been good with children, but cannot live with cats or chickens. Nanook is fully vetted and ready for a home of his own! Nanook's siblings have all been adopted; stop in and meet him! If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an adoption application. This avoids the disappointment of someone else has "beating you to it" because they were pre-approved. Processing an application does not take us very long but we do insist that all potential adopters are approved before placing a dog. Applying is very simple. Just log on to our website at Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue and select Adopt a Dog from the menu on the left side of the homepage. Just above the photo gallery you will see Adoption Application giving you a choice of 2 formats. Select one of these and complete the information requested, then save it as a file and e mail it to us. If you do not get a response within 24 hours of sending your application, please call us at 716/326-PAWS. And be sure to check out all the dogs and puppies eagerly awaiting homes.

Our Pet List

Our mission is to rescue and provide sanctuary for stray and abandoned dogs and puppies and do our best to secure for each of them permanent, loving responsible homes. To promote respect and compassion for all creatures through humane education. To reduce pet overpopulation by increasing public awareness of the need to spay and neuter companion animals. To build or otherwise acquire, maintain and operate a shelter for dogs and puppies. NCCR is located in Westfield, NY which is between Erie, PA and Buffalo, NY.

All puppies/dogs over 16 weeks of age will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The adoption fee is $175 (includes spaying/neutering, age appropriate vaccinations, deworming and microchip). If the puppy is too young for altering at the time of adoption, the adoption fee is $250. Adopter must sign contract agreeing to spay/neuter by specified date in the adoption contract. $125 is returned to adopter upon proof of spaying/neutering. The adoption fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, worming, and microchip (to be implanted by shelter staff when puppies are over 4 months).

Senior dogs or special needs dogs are adopted out at a reduced fee or the fee is waived if an excellent home is found.

Other Departments
We try to match each dog with its new home so that chances for a successful, lifetime placement are much higher. Each interested party is asked to fill out an application. Once the application is completed, we interview the potential adopter.

All dogs over 16 weeks old are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Strict follow-ups are made to insure puppies are spayed/neutered when they reach 16 weeks of age.

Visit weekdays between 1 & 3 p.m. or otherwise by appointment. Morning, evening and weekend appointments are available.
