NorCal Collie Rescue

NorCal Collie Rescue is a nonprofit corporation* founded by collie lovers who are dedicated to taking responsibility for collies at risk in northern California.  Collies come to rescue from many sources, including animal shelters, death of the primary caretaker, people whose health has changed, breeders, divorce and many other circumstances.

Our volunteers take in and rehome collies in California, North of the Tehachapis. If you are in southern California, please contact Southland Collie Rescue. NCR will not ship collies or place them out of state, but we do collaborate with collie rescues adjacent to our area of coverage.

Please Note - NorCal Collie Rescue does not place Border Collies.  They are a different breed from a Rough or Smooth Coat Collie.  Please contact NorCal Border Collie Rescue or Border Collie Rescue of Northern California to adopt or rehome a Border Collie.

Editor’s Note - “Blue’s News”

Greetings NorCal Collie Rescue supporters!  Allow me to introduce myself as the new editor of the NCR newsletter.  I’m a Northern California native originally from Santa Clara and now live in San Francisco.  I grew up loving the breed, admiring all the Collies I saw at 4-H obedience and junior showmanship competitions I entered with my Shetland Sheepdog during my grade school years.   My husband Jason and I got our first Collie, Wiley, in 2014 (the tri color Rough Collie pictured to the left).  He was a gorgeous Collie with the most amazing personality and we had eight wonderful years with him before he passed away of lymphoma on New Year’s Day, 2023.
