Apply to Foster
Fostering is a big part of saving lives. By fostering, we help bring dogs out of overcrowded shelters. This creates more room in those shelters to bring in more dogs from the streets.
Become a Volunteer
NCCR is solely volunteer based. We offer many volunteer opportunities that keep our rescue running successfully. We are always looking for help in a variety of ways. Check out our list of roles you can become a part of.
WHO ARE WE
We are a all volunteer and fostered based rescue located in the greater Buffalo, NY area. We pride ourselves on being an all-breed dog rescue. We are a 50l(c)(3) organization and 100% of the money we raise goes towards the rescue and rehabilitation of the dogs in our care. We are 100% volunteer based, with no paid members or ownership.
Since the rescue started its operations in November of 2018, we have rescued over 700 dogs across eight states: Kentucky, West Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Ohio, and New York . We have no intention of slowing down. Our volunteers work tirelessly to save these dogs from the terrible fate of euthanasia due to overcrowding at shelters across the nation.
Nickel City Canine Rescue does not receive any funding from the county, city, state, or federal governments. Our rescue does not receive tax dollars of any kind . . . we’re only able to assist the people and pets in need thanks to donations from the community.
Nickel City Pet Pantry is dedicated to providing quality dog food and supplies to the Buffalo area. For every donation of dog food to Nickel City Canine Rescue, The Nickel City Pet Pantry will match the donation.
