DOGS AVAILABLE FROM REGIONAL SHELTERS & RESCUES - Page 1

Dear Border Collie Enthusiast:  If you know of a border collie at a shelter which you feel could be helped with a posting on this webpage, please check with the shelter to enquire if they would like us to post the dog here as well. The request however must come from the shelter. Our just being informed of a dog in need is insufficient. Please take it upon yourself to enquire with the shelter. As a 100% volunteer organization we do not have the personnel to follow-up in this manner with the abundance of dogs in shelters, nor can we simply copy a shelters listing for this webpage without their authorization.  

The following postings of dogs available for adoption supplement the postings of the listing shelter or rescue organization. If you are interested in adopting one of the these dogs, please contact the shelter or rescue directly. These dogs have not been evaluated by Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions.  We try and keep up on the availability status of these dogs, but not being of our rescue we rely on the listing organization to inform us if a dog has been adopted. If you contact the shelter/rescue and find a dog has been adopted, please let us know so we may remove the dog’s posting and keep this page as current as feasible. Thank you.

Pretty Sarah! This 1 year-old doll of a dog landed in our lap after she turned up as a stray at the shelter. She is now in a loving foster home where she is proving to be the sweetest little gal (she’s less than 40 lbs!) We think she’s a mix, maybe some Border Collie or even Whippet in there. She’s got a sweet, fun puppy energy. Sarah walks nicely on a leash and will sit for treats and food. She loves to have a bit of space to run – her foster mom says she runs like the wind! She also doesn’t mind snoozing through the night in a crate and also for a few hours at a time throughout the day. Sarah is doing well with the three other GSPs in her foster home and she is learning to avoid the cats. We can’t say enough good things about this cute girl. What we’d like to say next is that she found her forever home – is that you?

Meet Sarah!
