About Our Rescue Group:

The Collie and Sheltie Rescue Association of Southeast Virginia is a 501(c)3 not for profit group dedicated to finding loving homes for collies and shelties who, through no fault of their own, have found themselves lost, homeless, abdondoned and/or neglected. All of our dogs are fostered with volunteer families as one of their own until they find their family. The Rescue sees to and pays for all medical needs of the dogs before they are adopted. The foster families also assess temperments and work with their foster dogs on any behavioral/training issues. We love and know the collie and sheltie breeds - their personalities, grooming needs and health concerns.

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.
