Bruno was bored in his back yard & kept escaping. His owner grew weary of picking Bruno up from Animal Control
so he surrendered Bruno to NCWR. Now Bruno has a playmate, Maya, rescued from NCWR in 2009. Bruno & Maya
will be busy running with Mom & Dad in Santa Rosa. Mom says Bruno is a fine addition to their family!
Sam & his BFF, Border Collie, Maggie were taken to the shelter by their owner who claimed he could no longer care
for them. Sam & Maggie had been together since they were young & the shelter staff felt that Sam & Maggie were a
bonded pair that needed to stay together. That meant that NCWR needed a very special adopter & then he
appeared! Sam & Maggie's new Dad was looking for a running partner & a buddy for Petey, the 10 pound
Patterdale Terrier. He got more than he bargained for when he adopted Maggie in the package deal! Maggie is
sweet as can be & Sam & Petey are happy to let her be Queen! NCWR is so happy to have Sam & Maggie start their
new life in Woodland!
Boomer came into rescue when his owner had to have surgery & couldn't care for him, so he was surrendered to a
shelter. This was unfortunate for this sweet boy as he had a history of seizures, but Boomer was surrendered with
no medication! NCWR placed him, but he was returned after 3 years because he grew tired of traveling in the RV
with his Dad. Fast forward to today & Boomer has a Furever Family in Bakersfield, complete with Lily, a beautiful
blue Weimaraner girl! Boomer is a super sweet boy who loves to give out kisses & play fetch. Boomer is very
talented & used to perform tricks at a nursing home!

is now a pampered pet with his stay-at-home mom & new family! Kona Blue's new home in Auburn is surrounded
by green belts, with canyon trails nearby & a lot of open space for exploratory journeys! Kona Blue will be a happy
dog hunting & retrieving pheasants with Dad & attending obedience classes with Mom!
Faline's adoption is a real Cinderella story! Faline's owner bought her from a backyard breeder to rescue her from
the deplorable conditions she found her in. Unfortunately, the damage of a poorly socialized upbringing had
already taken it's toll & Faline could not adapt to family life. But Faline has fallen into the lap of luxury in her new
posh, stylish home in St. Helena with one of NCWR's most valuable past adopters & foster who enjoys cooking for
her! Mom says Faline is blossoming more & more every day. Faline will enjoy accompanying Mom on her 3-7 mile
power walks several times a week.

from the beach in San Francisco.

Puppy, Finn (AKA Otis), was surrendered to the shelter with 2 broken bones in his left rear leg that had been
untreated for 3 weeks! This poor baby was terribly frightened & in great pain. Thankfully, NCWR was able to
rescue him & place him in an amazing Foster Home while he recuperated from a successful surgery. Dozens of
NCWR supporters donated from $10 to $500 to pay for his expensive surgery. Finn's new Mom, who is a friend of
Finn's Foster Mom, has been instrumental in Finn's recovery & socialization. Having recently lost her Weimaraner
girl Annie, at almost 16 years old, she has a lot of love to give Finn. Finn's new Mom works from home, so Finn &

Thora & brother Popeye are very unique puppies, as they have “Hoppers”, a non- progressive, non-painful disorder
which causes them to hop when they run. That doesn't slow Thora down at all & she is as fast as can be! Thora is a
true Snow Bunny now that her home is in Kirkwood! Dad says she loved her first adventure in the snow, diving into
it & eating it! She has already had her 1st chairlift ride! This outdoorsy puppy is a natural swimmer, too & she will
