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.


Jango’s care includes behavioral plans for resource guarding and touch sensitivity, plus medication for anxiety. Now available for adoption, Jango has shown significant progress.


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


Like many dogs who need behavioral support, Jake has been through several homes. He is not available for adoption, as staff is currently working through a behavior management and modification plan focusing on his reactivity to animals and resource guarding.


This big beauty is a little on the timid side, but he absolutely loves his humans once he’s comfortable. He might actually love them too much. A generalized resource guarder, Levi needs behavior management and is not available for adoption.

BB + Ricky

Available for adoption as a bonded pair, Ricky and Butterbean have made so much progress since their arrivals. Ricky’s training plan is focused on his jumpy/mouthy behaviors, and Butterbean’s plan helps him to gain confidence in what is, to him, a very scary world.
