 Introducing Barkley!!!

BARKLEY is a 6-year-old boy who is a true pal dog. He is quite athletic. He lives to play ball & hang out with his person, going for walks and what the heck, play some more ball! He is wonderfully affectionate with his people and has outstanding house manners. Contrary to his namesake, he really only barks when someone comes to the door. If you’re looking for a great companion, look no further! Click here to read more about Barkley.

FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! In just 10 months NCBCRA has taken in over 120 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 assist at a time. 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!

Many, many thanks to Yuba City feed and pet supply store Pawformance & their patrons for holding a Sees Candy fundraiser this past holiday season to benefit NCBCRA.

Please shop Pawformance and the many other merchants and service providers on our Friends of Rescue webpage who provide rescue with their support throughout the year. Thank you all!
