Shep is a very special NEBCR foster dog. After being found tied to a telephone pole and brought to a local shelter, he was lucky enough to find his way to a wonderful NEBCR foster home. However, Shep's luck was short lived. He has been diagnosed with a number of severe medical conditions and given upwards of a year to live. For this reason, you won't ever be seeing Shep appear on our Available Dogs page. NEBCR felt that with all Shep had been through, it was best for him to live out the remainder of his life in the loving home he already has - his foster home.
Although hospice cases like Shep's are rare, NEBCR relies on donations in order to be able to meet the medical needs of these special dogs. We are proud of the fact that we do not turn away a dog in need because of a medical condition or age. If you'd like to find out how you can help dogs like Shep, check our our How To Help page.
