Fancy's Story...
Hi! I'm Fancy, a very sweet collie mix whose owner has to be admitted to an assisted living facility. I'm a very good girl, about 7 years old, and good with dogs, kids, and yes, even cats! I am housebroken and very easy going, happy to be out and about with my people or content just hanging out at home. I'm very good in the car, and though I pull on the leash at first when we go out, I happily settle into a nice walk at your side. I love my treats, so I'm a bit chubby right now, but the rescue is working on slimming me down a little. I'm a new addition, so the rescue will post more info as they get to know me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fancy, a Palatine Border Collie/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Collie for sale in Palatine, or seeking a Border Collie/Collie dog from a breeder in Palatine.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Palatine already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Palatine breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie/Collie breeders who help with Border Collie/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Palatine paves the way for another one to be saved.
