Our Mission Statement
Rescuing, rehabilitating, fostering and finding homes for unwanted, abandoned and abused Northern breed dogs: Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and mixes of these breeds in Northern California.
Northern California Sled Dog Rescue (NorSled) covers many Northern California counties. We try to help shelters as far south as Bakersfield and as far north as Reno Nevada. The territory covered by NorSled is approximately 70,702 square miles with a population of about 12,839,947. This area is larger and more populated than some States and even some Countries!
NorSled works directly with shelters in Northern California and Western Nevada. In some circumstances NorSled may take owner surrenders, but usually we work through the shelter system. We work closely with other Nordic breed rescues in other areas, and can refer owners in crisis to the rescue nearest them. As we cover a vast area, our ability to help rescue dogs is very dependent on having sufficient foster homes.
