In addition to dogs being fostered by NCBCRA, we also feature dogs being re-homed directly by their owners and available for adoption from shelters & other rescues. Please visit our Dogs Available From Owners and Dogs Available from Regional Shelters and Rescue web pages.

Due to limited resources, we are unable to accept owner surrender dogs into rescue at this time. We encourage anyone looking to re-home their dog to review the detailed information on re-homing at badrap.org

Click/tap here or on the scene above to visit our Holiday Spirit Donation Tree where you can drag and drop ornaments & presents to make a donation. Thanks to all who have adopted dogs, our rescue volunteers and friends, NCBCRA has placed nearly 600 dogs into loving homes since our inception in 2014. As we conclude our fourth year of service, we ask you to consider making a donation to assist in next year’s efforts to bring as many dogs as we can into rescue and help find them forever homes. If you have any questions on using the Donation Tree, do not hesitate to email us.  Thank You.

This year’s Holiday Spirit Donation Tree is dedicated to the relief efforts of the Butte County Camp Fire. All donations will benefit the North Valley Animal Disaster Group to assist their tireless effort to shelter, treat and unite animals & owners.

COPPER is a stunning 8-year-old border collie that is both active, yet content to spend time following his foster dad around the farm while he does chores, or stretch out in the sun when his foster mom & dad read the paper on the back patio. He loves to ride along in the car for errands to town, meeting people in the shops and offices he visits. Everyone comments on what a lovely boy he is!  Click/tap to see and read more about Copper.

Hiya Copper!!

Say hello to RANGER, a 1 year old BC mix. He is on the smaller side weight 35 pounds and has a cropped tail. His foster mom thinks he might have some corgi mix because of his rounded ears and long body. RANGER is a very sweet boy who loves all dogs and people he has met. He was afraid of the cats at first but has quickly gotten used to them. He can be shy at times and will do best in a home where he gets lots of patience and a gentle hand. RANGER loves to cuddle and will jump in your lap or lay at your feet. At 1 year he still acts very puppy-ish and is working on his potty training. He likes to play with plush toys and will chase a ball. He is a medium energy boy who loves to play but also settles down well in the house. Click/tap to see and read more about Ranger.
