About Our Rescue Group:

Collie Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Our mission is to place stray, abandoned and surrendered collies into loving and permanent homes, educate the public about the collie breed, and promote responsible pet care. Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy haven for all dogs placed in our care until loving, adoptive homes can be found.

Our Adoption Process:

It is Collie Rescue, Incís responsibility to place the animals that we rescue into an environment compatible with their needs and to ensure their adoption is in the best interest of both the animal and the adopter. Following are a few guidelines to help you understand the adoption process:

All rescued animals receive the following:

- Spay/Neuter

- DHPP & Rabies Vaccines

- Heartworm Test

- Monthly Heartworm Preventative (Interceptor) while in our care

- Fecal Exam

- Deworming, if needed

- Microchip Implant

- Bath, Groom, Frontline while in our care

Collie Rescue, Inc. will contact your veterinarian for a reference.

Collie Rescue, Inc., or an approved third party, will perform a home visit before the rescued animal is placed with the adopter. The home visit is performed to assure us that the prospective rescue will be a good match for your household. If necessary, areas of concern and helpful suggestions will be discussed either during or after the home visit.

There is a $300 adoption fee. The adoption fee pays for the veterinary expenses of the rescued animals.

The adopter must sign a legally binding adoption contract.

The adopter must return the animal to Collie Rescue, Inc. in the event they can no longer keep it.

The adopter represents that all members of the household have never been charged with cruelty to animals.

If the adopter moves, they must notify Collie Rescue, Inc. of their new address and phone numbers. (Collie Rescue, Inc. registers the microchip and therefore needs to keep adoption records current should the rescue animal become lost.)

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.
