  Holiday Greetings from NorCal Collie Rescue
Wishing our NCR family and friends a beautiful and peaceful holiday season.
We hope this holiday finds you and your loved ones healthy and happy.
Thank you for your support of NorCal Collie Rescue! Seeing our NCR collies placed in wonderful homes has always been our mission. We receive immense gratification seeing our NCR collies thrive in their new forever homes. This year NorCal Collie Rescue was able to help 13 collies find their forever homes.
Since 2005, we have placed several hundred collies who were abandoned, mistreated, sick, & malnourished, as well as, healthy & loved collies sadly given up because of a change in their owner’s circumstances. When this organization was first formed, we brought in several dozen collies every year. Since then, the number of collies in need has thankfully dwindled. We have had amazing financial support over the years, and we have always been able to provide any necessary medical treatment, despite the cost, to the collies that come into NCR. This has been an amazing gift to our rescue.
However, despite all the financial support, we are struggling with the lack of committed core volunteers. We have lost several key volunteers which makes the logistics of retrieving, transporting, fostering, caring, & placing the collies more difficult. Even though we have fewer collies coming into NCR, the burden has been falling to a few key folks within our current volunteer base. Our organization is struggling, not for financial reasons, but due to loss of volunteers. We need volunteers…. we need you. Instead of donating financially to NorCal Collie Rescue this year, would you consider donating your time instead?
What does that look like?
Here are some of the tasks that our volunteers do for NCR:
  • shelter pulls or shelter adoptions (if they won't release to rescue)
  • short-term foster
  • transporting to a foster home
  • fostering to placement
  • vetting
  • conducting homechecks…. just to name a few. 
On a larger scale, we need Area Coordinators. This role involves interviewing potential adopters & placing collies in the selected home, coordinating volunteers in your area, responding to rescue inquiries, and processing paperwork for each incoming or placed collie. We could use people in this role in San Mateo County, San Francisco, San Joaquin County, Stanislaus County, Yolo County and beyond.
If you would like to discuss in more detail, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are available and happy to discuss the rewarding ways you can help ensure that no collie slips through the cracks.
If you are not in a stage of life that this is an option for you and your family, please know that we are forever grateful for your support and love of collies. If you would still like to give financially to support collies in need, we ask you to donate to the Collie Rescue Foundation. This organization helps collie rescues across the country that need financial support to care for dogs with extreme medical issues, hoarding situations etc. To donate to please go to their website www.collierescuefoundation.org
Happy Colliedays!
