Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions, Inc (aka NCBCRA or norcalbcresue.org) is comprised of volunteers who give of their time, energy, and resources to help place border collies into new homes where they will be well cared for and loved. Our goals are to save the lives of border collies and place them into safe and nurturing environments. We strive to prevent uncontrolled breeding via a spay and neuter adoption policy and we educate prospective border collie owners on the benefits and potential difficulties of border collie ownership.

How We Serve
NCBCRA serves dogs who have been abandoned, lost, or mistreated and dogs who have ended up in a shelter through no fault of their own. The majority of our dogs come to us through animal shelters. We feel that caring for these border collies can best met by those who know and love the breed. We do not have a central facility. We rely on volunteers to run the rescue, foster dogs in their homes and meet with prospective adopters. The individuals who comprise our rescue have many years of experience with border collies and understand their physical and mental needs. Their reward is saving the life of a dog that might have been put to sleep or left abandoned to fend for itself, and placing that dog into a loving and caring home that understands this wonderful breed.
A successful adoption usually occurs when an owner makes time for their dog and provides the dog with structure and routine. Regular activity such as taking your dog for a walk, run, hike or swim go a long way to creating that special bond that results in a happy and well mannered dog.
While our focus is placing border collies as pets, many adopters recognize the talents and devotion inherent in this breed. They work with their dogs to develop them as therapy, herding, and quite often, as agility dogs. These border collie owners look at this effort as an opportunity to participate more fully in their dog’s life.
