Rescue a dog,  Foster a dog, Don't buy a dog from a Puppy Mill!!!
A rescue volunteer-created this wonderful video about how many dogs there are in shelters across the US, and encouraging people to foster or rescue a shelter dog to show how happy families become when these dogs find a loving new home.

NGRR encourages getting your new dog from a shelter, a breed rescue group (like NGRR) or a reputable breeder.  We ask you not to buy dogs in pet stores or from backyard brokers becasue there is a reasonable chance that they came from puppy mills, where the dogs are raised in abominal conditions at the lowest cost.   The retail pet stores and puppy brokers, then offer them to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a healthy, pure bred dog at a bargain price.   Buying from pet stores or backyard brokers only encourages the puppy mills to breed more dogs.
