Working with the people at NBS has been great. They are wonderful and caring people who want to be sure the perfect rescue dog go with the right owner. Over a period of a 2-3 years, we ended up with two of their rescues. These are the most incredible family members I could ever imagine. These two dogs want nothing more than to be loved and to give love. We owe so much of our own happiness now to the care and work of NBS. Bailey and Cole have bonded and are inseparable. They go everywhere with us.
Bailey came to us during a time of transition in the family. The people at NBS did a wonderful job of seeing the match between the personality of the dog along with the dog's need to the style and ability of the family. We are really deeply appreciative of their effort. The spent time talking to us first, spent time watching the dog interact with us and then followed through with more monitoring to be sure we had not encountered any problems. Bailey very quickly became a full member of the family and often seems to take charge because of her love. Thank you, NBS! We hope to get another wonderful dog from them in the near future. Duncan
I cannot begin to tell you how great this organization is. They really care about their animals. They are very professional and make sure that the correct pet goes to the right home. When I adopted my dog she not only was microchiped, spayed and very well groomed. He provided a leash and collar in two weeks of food. They also presented me with spayed and very well groomed. He provided a leash and collar in two weeks of food. They also presented me with a Binder with all informative information including vet records. I would highly recommend adopting from NBS animal rescue.
We adopted our dog Charlie 5 years ago from NBS. The adoption process was very thourough and friendly. Their main goal is finding a dog his forever home, they still invite us to their yearly picnic, are very interested in updates and are always ready to help and give advise.
Thank you NBS Animal Rescue, we love our doggie
NBS is a great organization. The dog that I wanted to adopt, had had already found a new home by the time my application had been approved. But within a few days, they sent me a picture of another dog, and shortly after, NBS brought this dog, Charlie, a superfriendly Cavalier King Charles, to our home and Charlie has been making our lives better ever since. They were also most helpful with giving real useful advise on house training in the weeks after the adoption. I also like it a lot that they keep in touch and do followups continously. Clearly, their priority is to place the dogs in good home forever!
Warren police calling NBS when we found JoJo 2 yrs ago was the best thing that could have happen to us. It was the luckiest day for all, JoJo found a forever home and we found the best little dog ever. I am really impressed with the great work NBS does. We will always be grateful for them and will continue to support them.

We found out about NBS about a year ago when we needed help with a dog we found wondering around the neighborhood. The police brought NBS with them and they rescue the little dog, she was in terrible shape, my husband did not think she was going to make it. We kept in touch with NBS and ended up adopting her. Her name is JoJo now and she is the best, it's amazing how much love this little dog can give in spite of what she might have gone through before we found her. I can not thank NBS enough for the work they do and their dedication. I tell my story to everyone I know in the hopes they will adopt as well.
NBS Rescue is the BEST. Such a wonderful group of people. I have had Tilly since April 2015 and she has been amazing. Such a smart little Chihuahua, a little too smart, we have to talk in code around her and sometimes do charades, which she is picking up on as well.
Every year NBS has a reunion party so the pup-parents can bring their furbabies back for a visit with their previous foster parents.
It's just wonderful, you cannot go wrong with choosing a new member of your family from NBS Rescue.

After the passing of my best friend "Molly" I immediately needed to fill the void in my heart and the emptiness in our home. I applied with ANOTHER rescue (not NBS) for a Chihuahua, drove 1-1/2 hrs, met the dog and was then told she came as a bonded pair and all the issues that came with both of them. I only have room for one other dog not 2. I was not impressed with the way this 1st rescue didn't give me any of the "issues" before I drove so far and to then try and push a 2nd Chihuahua on to me. I left pretty disgusted. I was still grieving from the loss of Molly I didn't have the time to invest in 2 dogs that would rather hide in a corner and die than to be held.
So I go back to my saved searches and Elsa and Tilly were the next 2 I was interested in meeting. I filled out the application and added an additional background of myself and home. I think it was the next day they started calling my Vet and references. I liked that. They weren't going to waste their time and they weren't into wasting my time. I ended up applying for Tilly (only because my mother comes over and takes care of my dogs while I'm at work and she was uncomfortable with trying to work with a hearing impaired dog).
During the week I borrowed my friend's dog to help us in our grieving. Aaron and I set up the home visit appointment and a few days later he came out with Tilly. The meet and greet went smooth. "Suzy" got along great with Tilly. Aaron went over the notebook chocked full of info (Yes! There is a detailed notebook!) and he felt comfortable to leave Tilly with us. I signed up for the trial period just in case Tilly was not happy here I wasn't going to force her to stay forever.
After a few days I emailed NBS and told them a trial period wasn't necessary, I'm keeping her! My other dog Suzy never cared for Molly, basically just tolerated her. Suzy, who is 12, never played or anything but LOVES to play with Tilly! Tilly has pretty much renewed Suzy's youth. They chase each other around the house and are respectful of each others boundries, they actually lay curled up next to each other on the back of the couch waiting to sing to the mailman when he walks across the grass.
NBS was a fantastic rescue to work with from start to finish. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in adopting a new family member. There is No Bull Sh*%. They tell you upfront if the dog has any special needs or issues so you are well aware before any time is wasted. Suzy has a few more good years in her but when it's her time NBS will be the first rescue I go to when I have an empty spot in my heart and bed needing to be filled. Tilly would need another partner in crime... can't have Thelma without Louise.
Thank you again NBS Rescue you exceeded my expectations!

My adult son adopted a dog from NBS several years ago. NBS was very thorough and organized in their adoption process, ensuring that Fia found a great home and Ethan adopted a healthy, vetted, socialized dog. Wonderful experience all around. I also have the pleasure of knowing other NBS alum adopted dogs living great lives with their new families in Ann Arbor. I would highly recommend NBS to future adopters.
My adult son adopted a small dog from NBS (Fia). The adoption process was thorough and supportive to ensure that he was a great home for little Fia, and that Fia was a good match for his household. A very positive experience all around, and Fia is doing great. I would (and do) definitely recommend NBS Rescue to prospective adopters.
I love nbs and their fosters! They are the most dedicated and hands on rescue I have ever come across and I work at an animal clinic. We adopted our Elsie from them back in September and are so thankful for this group! Elsie has brought so much joy into our lives after losing a pet. They really do go above and beyond for every little animal they rescue. It's amazing!
NBS is the best! Their policy of letting folks apply for adoption even before they have a dog in mind to adopt is so efficient.
After that, you watch their website for when your little dream critter becomes available.
We were looking for a pug and got a great one!
They also take care to make sure home & dog match--but w/o the sense of intimidation
that other rescue centers sometimes generate.
On adoption day, Rosie arrived with a notebook packed with care info, medical records, and tips from her foster family.
NBS is a very professional and very caring rescue group.
I left another rescue to dedicate my volunteering efforts 100% for NBS. Not only do they excell in rescue and placement, but they are always at the forefront for saving those dogs most needing help. No medical ailment too large, no disorder too big a challenge. No pup too old to begin a new life in a loving new home. I am so very proud to be a part of NBS. To those looking to adopt, be assured that great effort is expended in placing the best fit not only for your family but for the new life coming to join you. Sometimes the process from falling in love to that first home visit seems long - but it's worth it.
I came to know NBS Animal Rescue though my adoption of a dog I saw on Petfinder. Love at first sight. In my inexperience with legit rescues, I expected to be able to take my dog home with me upon our initial meeting and was disappointed that I could not have her until a background check and home visit was approved. This is what GOOD and CARING rescues do. They care so much about their fosters, they will not allow an adoption to go through without knowing that the dog will be placed in a home they can be assured will be the best fit for the dog. Now that I understand, though I still share that initial disappointment on first meetings that can't end in an instant new family, I am proud to not only support NBS, but have joined them as a foster parent. There is no higher standard than that of this group. I am blessed to have "discovered" them, and anyone adopting a pet should be assured that an adoption through NBS comes with all the love and support you'd ever need - beyond that of your new four legged love . . .
NBS Animal Rescue is the best. Maverick is the first dog I've ever rescued. NBS answered all my questions and was extremely friendly throughout the entire process. I couldn't imagine my life without my little buddy!
Amazing dog rescue, their volunteers go above and beyond in caring for each animal that they bring in.
NBS was wonderful to work with, they allowed us to keep Toby for a couple hours to make sure we were a good match. we have had Toby for almost two years and he's my little buddy.
He gets along with our other dog which is a plus.
We adopted 2 dogs from NBS and now can't imagine our lives without them. The house is noticeably quiet when they aren't around. NBS was wonderful to work with and found the perfect match for us .... x 2!! Both pups came to us healthy, groomed and ready to join our families. They could tell us about their personalities, what they liked and disliked which made their transition easier. Highly recommend NBS. We will keep using them in the future!
NBS took care of "Lisa" our little white poodle/? before we adopted her. Their vetting process to place her was thorough, fair, and driven by trying to find the best possible placement for each pet. This is one fantastic, caring organization!!!
We adopted Lisa about one year ago. She had been dropped on the street a long with many brothers and sisters. She was in terrible shape when she was found and was given excellent care by an NBS foster Mom for three months. We got her when she was 9 months old. She was in excellent health then and is the sweetest little girl. NBS does thorough check on all adopters making sure the forever home is just right.They are truly fantastic.
They were great to work with from start to finish. We can't imagine our lives without Ethyl and our foster mom was awesome as was the vet they work with. They use rigor behind their screening because they genuinely care about animals.
My husband Brian and I had no thoughts of ever getting another pet. We are both retired and made our move from Michigan to South Carolina in 2013.
Our oldest daughter still lived in Michigan but was getting ready to put her house on the market after Christmas. So we made a trip last year in early December to help get the house in order. My daughter Laura had been volunteering with NBS for a few years. She had adopted a 5 pound male poodle through NBS a couple of years ago. NBS had asked Laura to foster a recent rescue. She was a mixed female dog who had recently given birth to a litter of pups. When Animal Control found her she had been wondering the streets in Macomb County. NBS had named her Sierra. When I first laid eyes on her she was so thin. But she felt safe at my daughter's home and adapted well with her two dogs Madison and Charlie. I was very protective of her. And went so far as to rename her Willow. I remember handing her over to one of the volunteers the day if her spading. I even told that person she looked like a Willow. She had 2 surgeries while she lived with my daughter and did well with both of them. So much for one little dog to undergo.
We returned to South Carolina before Christmas. But I couldn't stop thinking about this small white bundle of fur. I loved her even then. I probably fell in love with her the first time I laid eyes on her. So within a few weeks she had recovered from both surgeries and was ready for adoption. I put in an application to NBS. They had a very extensive form with a number of very specific questions regarding layout of the home, ways in which I might handle bad behavior, potty training, and outdoor activity. We also provided 3 references that were not relatives. A few days later my husband and I had been approved for Sierra.
We received her on my birthday-February 15th. Today we celebrated her 2nd year birthday. We fill blessed to have this small bundle of joy. Willow has adapted beautifully to her new home and especially this hot weather. We are extremely grateful to NBS for their dedication in helping animals who have been abused or abandoned.
Thank you for this opportunity to tell my story.
The most amazing caring rescue I have ever known. They throughly do their home work to find the best home for the dog. They follow up years later. They truely care
A year ago we lost our fur baby of almost 18 yrs old. My daughter put in an application for what is now are new fur baby. Working with NBS was a wonderful experience. They explained step by step adoption process, brought dog to meet with us...which was love at first sight. I thank NBS by making an annual donation to help them with other rescued animals. Please adopt... don't shop...looking for a rescue, contact NBS.... they're the best! Kelly family & Elroy
NBS Animal Rescue is such a professional and caring rescue. I have been fostering dogs for NBS approximately a year when they posted a little girl, Gidget, who needed a foster while waiting for her furever home. I immediately wanted to foster Gidget and once she was in my home I knew she was not ever going to leave - huge foster fail! LOVE my Gidget!
I am honored to be associated with NBS by fostering and helping these pups gain confidence, learn to trust and find the best homes!
My family always welcomes the chance to review NBS Animal Rescue. NBS is staffed by an outstanding group of caring volunteers. When we adopted our dog, Nikki, we were impressed by the professional and thorough way they handled her placement. They made sure that we were the best family for a little dog with a sad history. NBS has stayed in touch, answered our questions, and they host a wonderful reunion picnic. We are lucky we found such a great rescue group...and Nikki!
Our experience with NBS Animal Rescue was excellent. We adopted our dog Nikki from them and they made certain that we were a good match -- and we were! Nikki is the perfect dog for our family. She is a very small chihuahua and gets along great with our dog Riley. NBS was here for a meet and greet between the two dogs to make sure they would bet along and be good companions for each other. NBS was very helpful with transition tips as Nikki settled in to our home. NBS is a great organization run by kind, caring, and well-organized staff.
Thank you Shannon! We are so happy that Nikki was the perfect fit for your family! ~NBS Animal Rescue
