Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the welfare of the border collie
Serving the greater Sacramento valley and Sierra Nevada foothills


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.

If interested in Kya, please email or text 707-498-4658

Kya is a beautiful, energetic, teenage, herding dog! She is available through Buddy and Angel's Animal Rescue in Humboldt County and is currently being fostered. She was surrendered to the rescue by her owner who was unable to keep her any longer. She is loving and enjoys playing with dog friends, but can be dominant. She knows all of her basic commands (and some fancy tricks), is house broken, as well as crate trained. Kya loves to give kisses and to cuddle with her foster family. She has done really well around chickens, most other dogs and young children. Did we mention she has great recall, loves the water and also rides awesome in the car?!

If you want an active dog to add to your active lifestyle, Kya is the dog for you!  She has high drive and could possibly be a good agility companion or ranch dog with some training. If you would like to meet Kya, please contact her foster parent today at, or text at 707-498-4658 to arrange a meet and greet! An adoption application, possible home visit, and small adoption fee does apply.

Meet Kya!
