Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
To provide proper emotional and physical care to Border Collies whenever possible.
To spay or neuter all rescued dogs unless precluded from doing so for health reasons.
To educate the public in regards to the nature, needs and natural tendencies of a Border Collie.
To place rescued Border Collies in appropriate homes after proper screening.
To actively raise funds to meet Border Collie needs.
To respectfully come to the aid of other Rescuers whenever possible.
To teach and support those individuals that have adopted Border Collies.
We require an application to screen potential adopters and find the best match for the dog and home. The dogs placed by BCRO are pets, so we prefer them to be primarily inside dogs, with access to a fenced yard and lots of exercise. Also, we require an adoption fee of $150 and a contract.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
