Attention Shoppers! There’s now two ways your day-to-day shopping can benefit NCBCRA, all at no extra cost to you. One way is through shopping at AmazonSmile.com (see below) and the newest way is by using a S.H.A.R.E.S. swipe card at Save Mart, Food Maxx or Lucky grocery stores.

Send us an email at info@norcalbcrescue.org and we’ll mail you the swipe card allowing NCBCRA to receive up to 3% of your purchase cost as a donation.  Please include your postal mailing address!

NCBCRA is now a registered charity with AmazonSmile. Please select us as your charity so we may receive from the AmazonSmile Foundation a donation of 0.5% of each purchase. This is provided by the foundation to us at no extra cost to you. Click here to select us as your charity.

There’s no difference in shopping at AmazonSmile vs. Amazon.com. Simply shop at smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, that’s it! All of your Amazon account info, preferences, etc remain the same. If you’re not familiar with AmazonSmile, click here to learn more. Thank you!

TEX is a 7-8 year old 55-pound boy with a sweet personality and BC smarts. He has a medium coat with classic BC markings, loves balls and squeaky toys, walks well on a leash, and is just a kind and gentle spirit. TEX loves his early morning walks with his foster family, calmly waiting for his harness to be put on and patiently waiting his turn to go out the door. Be sure to check out his YouTube video!

TEX shows typical BC herding instincts when he plays with his foster pack mates, and there isn’t a ball that he doesn’t like, although he will give up the catch to the other ball-obsessed BCs in his foster home. He has plenty of energy and likes to run and romp with the group. He has also been a wonderful playmate for a 6-month-old exuberant BC foster puppy, enjoying a friendly wrestle or game of keep away.

When TEX is happy, he does a little talking – more like a ‘bay’! You’ll hear a ‘woo-ooo!’ before breakfast and dinner is served and when he knows it is walk time. TEX likes his soft warm bed but will welcome a cuddle and petting session anytime. Click here to see more photos and read more about TEX.
