Established in 1998, we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the welfare of the Border Collie. We are active in rescuing Border Collies from shelters and assisting owners who wish to place their dogs into new homes. 

We rescue dogs from as far north as Stockton, south to San Luis Obispo, and from the North Bay and South Bay Areas.  We do however, adopt dogs to homes in all areas of California as well as neighboring states. 

We are a foster based organization where our rescue dogs enjoy staying with one of our foster volunteers until they are adopted.  We depend on donations, adoption fees and the sale of merchandise to take care of the dogs in foster care.  Medical bills run very high and donations are always welcome.

Border Collie Rescue of Northern California focuses on one of the more active, brainy, challenging—and, as their many fans will attest, rewarding—breeds around. And, like many rescues these days, they're seeing a lot of dogs whose owners fall on hard times and can't keep their completely lovely companions. The star of one such sad story is Ben here, who was actually adopted from the rescue as a young dog seven years ago by a very nice family; they recently fell victim to the economy and had to give him back. Ben, a border collie mix, has adjusted well to the dogs and people in his foster home, has great house manners, and has shown a happy, mellow attitude to all. In short, he's a find, and whoever adopts him will be pretty lucky. ben A big round of applause to 9-year-old local girl Kimber, who asked family and friends for dog food instead of presents for herself on her recent birthday, and then brought it all to the rescue. Seems they have a border collie mix themselves, so they understand... Photo: Ben—Border Collie Rescue of Northern California  more »
Border CollieLegendary for their brains, energy and work ethic, Border Collies are fabulous companions for those who understand them, and often come to grief with those who don't. That's why the dedicated volunteers of Border Collie Rescue—breeders, exhibitors and fans—work together to provide a safety net for these dogs and get them into good homes. As they put it, “We feel that the responsibility for caring for lost, neglected and abused Border Collies must rest with those who know and love the breed.”  more »
