Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Our Border Collies live with our volunteer foster providers. We have foster providers in many cities throughout Northern California. Our general adoption area is from Monterey to Redding.
About Our Rescue Group:We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the welfare of the Border Collie. We are active in rescue from shelters and we assist owners who wish to place their dogs. We depend on donations, adoption fees and profits from the sale of merchandise to take care of the dogs in foster care. Medical bills run very high and donations are always welcome.
Our Adoption Process:The only fee involved is to cover our expenses. Any dog over six months of age, adopted from BCR will have been spayed or neutered. Rescue Border Collies are generally not suitable for breeding. Rescue Border Collies make marvelous friends, and placing them in a devoted supportive environment is the only goal we will pursue. If you would like to acquire a Border Collie with the idea of producing puppies, we would be happy to refer you to one of our list of breeders who conducts genetic screening. Breeding Border Collies is a time-consuming and expensive endeavor, and one which should not be attempted without knowledge and understanding of this breed and of the many facets of breeding and nurturing puppies.
All adopters of rescued Border Collies will be asked to sign an Adoption Agreement. This contract is legal and binding.
We recommend you follow a regular inoculation program established by your veterinarian to guarantee your dogs stays healthy. You will receive a complete medical history on your Border Collie (as best as can be determined or documented). You must also have the dog licensed in accordance with the laws where you live. Since we do not know you personally, the information from the Adoption Request Questionnaire (which is requested of anyone seeking a rescue Border Collie) will help us to match the right kind of Border Collie for your circumstances. We place Border Collies only in good, loving homes, and we screen prospective adopters thoroughly.
