About Our Rescue Group:

We are a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers. We specialize in placing orphaned Border Collies matching the right dog to the right home. Our dogs come from shelters or owner turn-in situations and stay in foster homes. We are their way-station to finding their very special human.
Our President has spent a lifetime with ranch animals and has successfully placed over 300 dogs during her tenure with various rescues. This experience is the basis for accurate temperament testing and successful placement, because if you meet 20 Border Collies, you meet 20 personalities. They are each unique. We try our best to understand each Border Collie’s needs and possible issues so that we can honestly share as much as possible with potential adopters.
What does Look Back mean? Look Back is the command given to the Border Collie by the handler after already gathering sheep, to leave the hard earned flock and go look for more lost sheep. To be willing to leave the flock for more sheep requires deep trust in the handler. Together, the teamwork completes the task of bringing all of the sheep to safety.
If you adopt from a rescue, you are rescuing the next orphan and you become part of the team. We appreciate you considering Look Back Border Collie Rescue.

Come Meet our Pets:

Since our dogs live in foster homes, they are located through-out Southern California.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an on-line application on our website www.LookBackRescue.org in which the potential adopter shares information about their family, experience with dogs, and what they want in their next best friend. The foster family will contact the applicant to answer questions and set up a chance for them to meet the dog. Fees and blank adoption contract will be sent to the adopter prior to meeting.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
