NorCal Sheltie Rescue is an affiliate of the American Shetland Sheepdog Association Rescue Network and is organized and run from the Sacramento area of Northern California. The Shetland Sheepdog Companion Rescue of Northern California operates as a 501c(3) not-for-profit corporation. NorCal Sheltie Rescue is an all-volunteer group made up of a network of Sheltie experts, adopters, foster homes, trainers, breeders, and fans all around Northern California. We do not have a central facility; our geographically diverse volunteer network locates, rescues, transports, fosters, evaluates, trains, and re-homes individual shelties on case-by-case basis. No volunteer receives any salary or financial benefit of any kind from NorCal Sheltie Rescue.  Operating costs are entirely funded by donations.

What We Do
We take in and place homeless Shetland Sheepdogs in approved homes throughout Northern California, from Bakersfield north to the Oregon border and from the Pacific coast to the state border with Nevada. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Shelties who have lost their homes for a variety of reasons. Rescue Shelties are first placed in volunteer foster homes to prepare them for adoption. Foster care includes vet exams, vaccinations, any necessary treatment, regular exercise, and temperament evaluation. All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to placement. NorCal Sheltie Rescue screens and approves all applications prior to placing a rescue dog in a permanent home. Once the dog is placed, frequent follow-ups are done to insure that the match is successful for both the dog and the adopter.

Shetland Sheepdogs
Shelties are smart and sensitive, capable of performing in obedience, agility, herding, pet assisted therapy, conformation, fly-ball, tracking, and carting. They are eager learners whose only goal in life is to please their owners. They make wonderful companions for those who don't mind their dense fur, which sheds and requires regular grooming, and their tendency to vocally comment on what's going on around them.

Surrendering Your Sheltie
If you have a Sheltie that you can no longer keep for any reason, please contact us. We will bring your Sheltie into foster care until a suitable home can be found.
