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 visit our About NCR page to learn more about our Organization.

Rescued Collie Arrives from South Korea, Goes All "Lassie", Saves Owner
What better way to celebrate National Dog Day than with a story about Lassie? How about a story in which Lassie is actually Alice where Alice is a Collie rescued from a high kill shelter in South Korea who finds her way to California where she saves her new owner from harm? Because that is what happened. And between dogs from Spain becoming therapy dogs and helping start prison programs and Korean Collies saving lives...I just might have to start an "Immigrants are Making Our Canine Nation Great" category.

Alice's story begins in a shelter in South Korea where she had arrived as a stray. She was being held for a ten day period to allow any surfacing owners to find her. After the hold expired, she would be euthanized if left unclaimed. Team Inch volunteer Wendy Lee Williams was alerted to her presence by a collie-enthusiast friend and immediately went to work to provide rescue for her if needed. Team Inch, named for "Inch", a rescued greyhound, works to rescue sight hounds and larger breed dogs, partnering with rescues in Canada and the U.S. as finding safe forever homes in South Korea for larger dogs can be difficult to achieve.

Little Missy is a 7 year old  Pure Bred , spayed female collie. She is up to date on vaccines, and will be getting her teeth cleaned soon.  She is a tiny thing, less than 50 lbs. and very beautiful as you can see. Tipped ears and a lovely coat.  She has a delightfully cute personality. She is sweet, friendly and calm for the most part. She is not extremely active. So several walks, on leash,  per week would be enough for her.

Missy was de-barked at some point in her life but it was botched (didn't work). So she does have a bark, but it is not as loud, and sort of raspy sounding.

But Missy does have some things that need to be addressed.  She is living with 4 other dogs right now in her foster home, and 99% of the time, gets along fine with them, but she can be a bit bossy with them on occasion. She doesn't fight, she is just bossy and tries to be dominant.  So she should be an only dog or go to a home that can deal with, and help her with this issue.

She is not good with cats. She has not been evaluated with children, so will not be placed in a home with kids.
She is good with my mini horse and goat. Doesn't attempt to chase or bother them at all.
