About Our Rescue Group:Buckeye Border Collie Rescue, Inc. is committed to helping Border Collies find appropriate, loving and responsible forever homes. We are an all-volunteer group! Please do some research on the breed. Border Collies are not for everyone! There is a wealth of information about the breed on rescue sites. They must have a job to do to challenge their minds and release that energy. They need more than "room to run". Border Collies don't take coffee breaks or go on vacation.
Come Meet our Pets:We do not have hours of operation. The BCs are fostered in our homes. Please read the adoption process. Once the application process is complete, an appointment is then made to meet our BCs. This allows us to be sure our BC is the appropriate BC for your forever home! When supplying a phone#, please provide a phone# that can be reached in the evening or on weekends. We are not able to return phone calls during the day.
Our Adoption Process:Most of the Border Collies come from shelters in Ohio and Kentucky. At any time, there may be the Border Collie just for you and it may not be on the site yet. Please read "OUR ADOPTION PROCESS" and submit your application for consideration. We will not ship Border Collies.
OUR ADOPTION PROCESS---PLEASE READ
Adopting a dog from us is a PROCESS that takes time. Please begin the process before inquiring about a particular dog.
1. You MUST FIRST fill out an ADOPTION APPLICATION. You can get to our website at www.buckeyebcrescue.org
2. A HOME VISIT is then scheduled.
3. There is an adoption contract and a donation required to help cover the cost of rescue.
4. If you have completed the application, it is best to email firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate rather than call on the telephone. We are volunteers with full-time jobs and normal responsibilities just like you have. In addition, we have the rescue fosters to tend to, vet visits to make and transports necessary to get BCs from shelters and into foster homes. Please be patient as this process may take several days or a week.
