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!

Introducing Bandit!!!

North & South

An epic adoption tale of five Superhero border collie pups from Tehama County and seven Black & White border collie pups from Placer County, struggling to put aside their regional differences and overcome the limitations imposed by society in an all out effort to find their forever homes and be the best dogs they can be!

The two litters were born just one day apart and are now 6 weeks old. We will be taking adoption enquires starting this Saturday and the puppies will be ready to go home on the weekend of March 21!  

More photos and info on each pup and adoption procedures later this week! Be sure to submit your Adoption Application now and have it pre-approved for when the show starts!
