Ways to Help

We depend on our volunteers and donors to help as many dogs as possible. Check here for the different ways it’s possible to help us help them. 

New Website Announcement


NEBCR Has a New Website!

NEBCR is fortunate to have a new volunteer join us recently who is a front end web developer, and who offered to donate her professional services in rebuilding our nearly 20 year old website, free of charge! Those of you that may be in the website design/development industry know how much time and effort can go into a big project like this, never mind the effort of the client (in this case NEBCR) in compiling and editing so many pages and DECADES worth of content – which is why NEBCR has been sitting on the site we have for so long.

We were more than thrilled to take her up on the offer, and thanks to months of hard work by Rebeca and 3 other long time volunteers Bea, Mo and Emily, the new site is now ready for all of you to explore! The site will be mobile friendly (finally!), follow current best practices for website navigation and functionality, and feature lots more big, beautiful photos of NEBCR dogs past and present. 

And once again we want to thank Rebeca for her excellent work, and if you know anyone in the market for website development services, we would highly recommend working with her and her company www.devshop.info.
