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. 


Adoptable Dogs

We have many adoptable dogs of all ages. Check them out here and fill out an application.


We also offer a Foster-to-Adopt program.


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.




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.

Since the rescue started its operations in November of 2018, we have rescued over 1,800 dogs across nine states: Kentucky, West Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Ohio, Tennessee 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.
