Burlington's Story...

Hi my name is Burlington! I was found in a parking lot and brought to CARA several years ago. I am believed to be a collie mix around 7 to 9 years old. I am a sweet boy who has been continuously overlooked by potential adopters. Some say it's all because I am black in color but for some reason I just don't seem to get noticed. I still keep my hopes up that someone out there will give me a second look. I know I still have some good years in me to be someone's loyal companion. My adoption fee has been paid by a generous donor so please come meet me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jackson 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 Jackson 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 breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jackson paves the way for another one to be saved.
