BANDIT is a beautiful 3-year-old boy whom his foster mom describes as an “easy keeper” dog, which is to say, he’s been no trouble to foster at all. While coming off a ranch as a mostly outside dog, he has made the transition to being comfortable in the house, worked his way into the canine pack at his foster home and seeks love and attention from his foster family. BANDIT does have a strong personality and is physically a larger dog at over 60 lean pounds such that an experienced dog handler is recommended.

FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! In just our first year of service, NCBCRA has taken in over 180 dogs thanks to the remarkable effort of our volunteers. Nonetheless, we are ever in need of foster homes. The extent of available foster homes defines how many dogs we can help. The number of dogs in need always exceeds the space we have available in foster homes! Please visit our Volunteer webpage and email us if you can help and become a foster home.  Thank you!

NCBCRA is celebrating its 1st Anniversary this month! Through the hard work of our dedicated volunteer rescue force, the generosity of many donors, the support of our sister rescue Border Collie Rescue of Northern California and of course all of the lucky new dog owners, we’re proud to announce we’ve placed over 170 dogs into new homes in this first year.

One such recent contributor to NCBCRA has been a talented young artist, Rachel Love, who has provided us with a gorgeous new painting for our logo and future use on promotional material. The logo size, as seen above, simply doesn’t do her work justice, but perhaps this enlargement will provide some insight into her talents.

Pollyanna adopted! Congrats to Miss P. & her new owner. Polly follows in the paw steps of Oat, our first dog to be placed into a new home after having to have a leg removed. Read more about Pollyanna.

Rachel is a border collie owner herself. Her dog Mara and her other work is featured at her website DragonsFlameMagic and at her Zazzle site where you can purchase products and gifts. The artwork above was created from just a couple of low resolution photos. If you’ve ever wanted to have nice artwork created of your border collie, please email Rae at RaeLove1986@gmail.com

The effort goes on for us and we thank all involved for making our first year of service a success. We hope to hear from everyone in our second year!
Thank you!
