North Carolina Rottweiler Rescue is the only non-profit
Rottweiler Rescue Organization based out of Raleigh, NC
that has been rescuing Rottweiler dogs since 1998. NCRR is
all-volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives
of homeless Rottweilers and placing them in qualified
homes. Note: We often have other breeds available so,
even if you’re not interested in a Rottie, please check
out our Adopt Me page and our special site
for small dogs.
NCRR does not have a shelter and depends on the
generosity of the people who offer to foster dogs in their
homes. NCRR volunteers do not receive pay for their help
and all money raised by fund-raisers, donations and
adoptions goes directly to benefit NCRR rescue companion

NCRR is doing what we can to help save these dogs.
However, it is critical that we find foster homes asap. If

week, NCRR turns away shelter dogs due to lack of space.
These dogs died at the shelter where they were waiting for
their angel to come and “save” them. Please remember, NCRR
can only save the amount of dogs we have foster space for.
NCRR has no open foster homes and depends on the
generosity of Rottie/animal lovers to open their homes and
hearts to a dog to foster until a furever home is found.
Please take a look at the following “deathrow” and look
into your heart to see if you can save a life that would
otherwise become a sad statistic.
NCRR does NOT kill dogs! We are a RESCUE organization.
We are trying to find people to foster or adopt the dogs
before the shelters kill them. Won’t you please help? To

You do not have to live in North Carolina to become a
foster home or adopt from NCRR.
Help Wanted: Temporary foster homes in Raleigh area for
short overnight or 1-6 day stays until the dog can be
moved to a more permanent foster home. It would be helpful
if the temporary foster home has capability to help with
transport of the dog. Please
apply if you think you can fill this very critical
role for our rescue. Your help, although short-term, is
need you! Our current
fosters rock! But we still need more
foster homes in order to save the never
ending numbers of homeless and abused
dogs. Do you love animals and have some
dog training experience? Can't afford to
adopt a dog but would like the
companionship? We have several
beautiful, big Rottweilers in boarding
that need a patient, guided hand to
teach them manners and to make them more
adoptable. NCRR has a large support

training experts that can provide any
assistance you may need to rehabilitate

Schatzi urgently needs a foster
Schatzi is a medium aged girl that came
to us very stressed out. She had lost her
owners (both passed away over the past
year) along with losing some older dog
siblings and a cat sibling. She was very
upset, had lost some weight and had some
hair loss/scratching on her butt region.
As soon as we brought her home, we gave
her a nice bath with a flea and tick
shampoo (in case that was the cause) and
sprayed her coat with some nice
conditioning spray (it was very very dry).
We took her to the vet and she is
Heartworm negative and she is flea free!
That was indeed what caused the hair loss
and scratching but our shampoo killed them
all and she is fine. Her coat is growing
back and feels much softer compared to
when we she first got here. She is very
friendly with people and would cry a
little when we would leave the room and
leave her behind (ie: when my husband
would leave for work at 5am) She's been
getting better at understanding we'll be
coming back. She gets very attached to her
people. Her first couple of days, she
didn't even want to go outside unless I
waited in the door for her so she could
see me. She is now more comfortable with
going out more often and investigating
even when I am still inside. She is slowly
learning some independence and trust in
her people returning to her.

We need your help
The dogs above are either in a kill
shelter or are NCRR foster dogs urgently
needing new homes for various reasons.
There are so many. These are only a few of
the dogs we have been contacted about. We
turn away many, many more that will die.
The dogs with KILL DATES will not live
another day past their kill date without
your help! They are either GASSED IN THE
GAS BOX OR KILLED BY INJECTION. NCRR does
not have any room to bring them into
foster care and safety unless someone
offers to foster or adopt them thru NCRR.
Please email email@example.com if
you would like to help by fostering one of
the companion pets in need. They are
counting on you!
Unfortunately NO ONE has inquired or
offered to help any of the dogs above.
Isn't there even JUST ONE animal lover in
the entire Southeast or anywhere that
could help these poor creatures? I know
all of them won't be saved, but we have to

The Rottweiler Breed
It is hard to get the public to send in
donations because most of the public is
not educated regarding the Rottweiler
breed. Because so many people do not like
the Rottweiler Breed, NCRR tries to
educate the public in an effort to remove
the stigma that the public has regarding
the Rottweiler. The majority of people in
our society do not know a thing about
Rottweilers and don't believe their lives
should be saved. Most of the people who
send in donations are people who have or
had Rottweilers in the past and know what
great companions they are. We also get a
few other animal lovers try to help but
not nearly enough to keep this rescue
saving lives. Won't you think about making
a donation to make a difference in a
rescue dog's life? You can make a donation
thru paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are just a small sampling of dogs
who were put to death in various shelters
because we were unable to find foster
homes. Please help us so this doesn’t
happen to the Death Row dogs above!
