Resident Dogs


Sometimes, dogs need a little extra help before they can find their forever families. Here at MCR, we offer housing, medical, and behavioral support to our dogs for as long as they need it.

Please consider sponsoring the ongoing care of our current residents. Some of these dogs are already available for adoption — but are having a hard time finding the right home — and some are not quite ready to leave MCR yet.



Kip lives at MCR as our current Office Dog. His behavioral modification plan is focused on minimizing his reactivity toward other animals and increasing his number of human friends.


Russell has been available for adoption for several months. He’s a special needs dog (deaf and partially blind) who needs time to decompress in a new home and to make dog friends.


Our longest resident, Gracie is currently unavailable for adoption. She lives with foster parents who support her medical (canine megaesophagus) and behavioral needs.


When Jango first arrived, we needed to develop behavioral plans for his touch sensitivity and resource guarding. We also worked with our veterinarian to medically manage his anxiety. He is now available for adoption by appointment only.


Luna, Shoshone, and Veda were surrendered to MCR from our partners at the reservation. Luna lost 7 babies from her litter before we could get to her, but the remaining 2 girls are healthy and growing up well. All three are in foster care.

Where your money goes


Donations are used to offset the general costs associated with our facility and our Dog Care and Foster Programs.


Dogs receive routine wellness exams, spays, neuters, vaccinations, deworming, flea and tick treatments, and any specialty care recommended by our veterinarians.
