Introducing Blaze!

Blaze is one of those wonderfully affectionate and playful dogs who coincidentally has outstanding manners. He is sociable with people and dogs alike, but also has an independent streak that makes him curious and allows him to be self entertaining. If you’re looking for a true companion, Blaze is your boy!

Thank you (with big wet kisses) from Samson & Finn!!

Meet Samson and Finn, two border collies arriving at our door step with major medical problems. Samson with an intestinal obstruction and Finn with a long term foot injury. What they had in common is that they both had positive outcomes expected if they could receive the care they needed. Thanks to generous past support, NCBCRA was able to authorize immediate surgeries for both dogs. Each is now cozy in a foster home and on the road to recovery. Click here to read more of their stories.

For NCBCRA, rescue is not just about taking in healthy dogs, but also about helping out the sick and injured. As exemplified in this video of Samson, there is no better feeling than seeing a dog wagging its tail after surgery. It is why we do what we do.

Now on to the hard part of paying the bills. Being a rescue, we may receive much appreciated reductions in veterinary fees; nonetheless the remaining surgery, follow up care and medication costs are significant. They tally tens of thousands of dollars a year (this pair alone is over $5,000). Your tax deductible donation allows us to help Samson, Finn and others like them. Without your help we could not help these dogs achieve this quality of life. Please reach into your hearts and pockets and help us to continue the effort.      

NCBCRA is now a registered charity at AmazonSmile. Please select us as your charitable organization so we may receive from the AmazonSmile Foundation a donation equal to 0.5% with each purchase. This is provided at no cost to you. Here’s how to sign up:

Copy Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions and paste us into the Charity search box at smile.amazon.com.
