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.

The long awaited CD by Rick Aeschliman, "The Road Home" is done and will be ready to ship in a few days. When you order Rick's wonderful CD, he will donate a generous portion of profit to our "Angel Fund".
The Angel fund was set up by Cathy Toft and Rick 10 years ago to help rescue collies that are elderly and others also in need of special medical care. Because there are reasonable limits on what we can ask regarding adoption fees for older and medically challenged collies, the adoption fee usually does not cover their medical expenses. To help cover expenses of collies regardless of age and medical condition, we have set up a special called “The Angel Fund” and is named for Angel, one of our elderly rescue collies who crossed over the rainbow bridge in 2007.
Rick dedicated this Album to the memory of Cathy Toft, one of the founders of NorCal Collie Rescue, who died in December of 2011. When the Angel Fund was set up Rick donated profits from prints of a painting he did called "The Road Home". It was a limited edition of 250 prints. Rick and Cathy held back 50 prints to be offered at a later date. Rick has decided to release the remaining 50 prints and give one free CD with every print sold.
GREAT NEWS FOR CELIA AND OTHER ELDERLY NCR COLLIES!

This is a wonderful opportunity to own a CD or fine art print (free CD with print purchase) by Rick and help our elderly collies!
The CD blends the hauntingly beautiful sound of the Native American Flute with Rick's simple,
but effective acoustic guitar melodies. Great music therapy for dogs and human alike!

Pepper is a collie mix who was found up past Berry Creek near the Plumas National Forest. He came in quite underweight at 35 lbs. We believe he’s possibly a mix of one or more of the following breeds: collie/border collie/sheltie/aussie. He’s estimated to be between 2-4 years old.
11/11/14 update: Pepper has gained weight and now is at a healthy weight. He's quieted down a lot. Just needs a few basic lessons and will be a perfect family or companion dog. He is fine with all dogs. Is submissive, even to the Chihuahua. He walks well on leash, although not at a heel, but he is not a puller. He shows a lot of youngster behavior. Is probably closer to two years old. He is okay with cats, although he will show interest in chasing if one runs. He's perfectly fine with one of my cats who does not run. If adopter has cats, will need to reinforce to not chase.
