Northern Virginia Sheltie Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all volunteer organization established to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome Shelties. Most of these Shelties have been relinquished to NVSR by owners unable to keep them. Others are found in shelters, because they are strays or have been abandoned. All our Shelties are fostered in NVSR volunteers' homes (we do not have a shelter), and any medical needs are addressed promptly and fully, including spay or neuter. They are then eligible to be adopted to carefully chosen homes, where they will be loved, well cared for, and protected. For the remainder of the adopted dogs' lives, NVSR stays in touch with the adoptive families. NVSR is a non-profit organization funded solely by donations.
Our Adoption Process:
Potential adopters need to complete an adoption application which is available on our website at http://www.nvsr.org or can be obtained by calling our phone number. The application is essential for NVSR to find the right Sheltie for a particular family and lifestyle. After the initial application is completed and reviewed, and a home visit is completed, NVSR will contact the potential adopter about Shelties that might be currently available which fit their profile.
