| About North East Rottweiler Rescue & Referral, Inc.
North East Rottweiler Rescue &
Referral, Inc. was established by Dale Green Young, Denise
Muccioli and MaryAnn Grim in February 1998. Dale and Denise
had been receiving many phone calls from shelters and Rottweiler
owners who were looking to find good homes for unwanted Rottweilers.
Dale and Denise realized there were very few people in New
England willing to go into shelters to evaluate Rottweilers
for placement. The large volume of phone calls demonstrated
a tremendous need for an organized Rottweiler Rescue in the
Dale and Denise believed the integrity
of the Rottweiler breed, as well as the safety of both the
public and Rottweilers depends on responsible ownership. Seeking
avenues to educate Rottweiler owners by referral, Dale and
Denise discovered very few resources existed for educating
and training an owner who had a problem Rottweiler. Instead
of finding help they needed, many frustrated and overwhelmed
Rottweiler owners were abandoning their dogs in shelters.
Dale and Denise, with MaryAnn's help created the foundation
upon which NERR&R was built. NERR&R's foundation goal
was and continues to be filling this educational and rescue
NERR&R adheres to the following objectives:
- Educate with regard to responsible ownership including but not limited to training, husbandry,
breeding and health practices.
- Preserve the Rottweiler breed through education, rescue, placement and other services.
- Rescue and re-home Rottweilers who are not a detriment to the breed.
- Offer consults to people with Rottweilers having difficulty finding housing or insurance.
- Assist other rescue organizations in their endeavor to acheive similar goals.
North East Rottweiler Rescue and Referral
Inc. extends its services to animal shelters, veterinary hospitals
and the general public in an effort to raise public awareness
of responsible Rottweiler ownership. NERR&R rescues unwanted
and abandoned Rottweiler dogs and places them into appropriate,
permanent homes. NERR&R promotes responsible ownership by
providing free educational services. These services include
pre-purchase counseling, behavior consultations and evaluations,
as well as breeder, trainer and insurance referrals.
NERR&R values all Rottweilers but is committed, above all,
to preserving the reputation of the Rottweiler breed. NERR&R
will not knowingly place any Rottweiler that may be a danger
to the public or which may perpetuate the media stereotype of
Rottweilers. Rottweilers placed by NERR&R have been fully
temperament tested and have lived in family situations for a
minimum of two weeks. NERR&R Rottweilers have been spayed
or neutered, heartworm tested and vaccinated before placement.
Many have been treated for other serious afflictions and full
disclosure and health records will be provided to the adopter
before they enter into a contract.
NERR&R is committed to the dogs it rescues for the natural
life of the dog. We continue to follow up on adoptions annually
and offer support or return services for adoptions that may
not work out whatever the reason. NERR&R invites other organization
and breeders to step up their level of commitment to their breed
and offer similar services. We welcome the opportunity to help
other grass-roots rescues establish themselves and uphold the
same level of commitment that NERR&R does.
