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.

2017 Collie Rescue Calendar Photos Needed

This sweet senior boy literally loves every living thing. Not a sour bone in his body. Always happy, and alway loving. He loves to lay close to any other animal. Small or large dogs, cats, kittens. Loves children, just the kindest soul I've ever met. Jace is around 8 to 10 years old. His exact age is not known.  Neutered and current on vaccinations. He will be getting his teeth cleaned soon. He is an excellent house dog. Potty trained and no bad habits. Calm and delightful. Would love just to sit or stand next to you with your hand on his head. He will stand next to you all day just to be petted. He is perfect when left alone in the house.  And very quiet. Loves to go on short walks and explore outside. Likes to play with humans in his own mild, gentle way.
