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.

How We Serve
NCBCRA serves an unending supply of abandoned, lost, & mistreated animals. The majority of dogs come to us through animal shelters, but we also help owners directly who can no longer keep their canine companions. We feel the caring for lost, neglected, and abused border collies can best met by those who know and love the breed the most. We do not have a central facility, but rely on non-
A successful adoption usually occurs when an owner makes time for their dog and provides the dog with structure and routine. We understand time may be tough to come by in any given day, but regular activity such as taking your dog jogging, to the dog park, or, when feasible, to work go along way to creating that special bond that results in calmness and desired behavior from your dog.
While our focus is on 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.
