Calvin's Story...
Calvin is our little patriotic puppy. He came to CARE right around 4th of July weekend as a small puppy with a case of mange. He's received a lot of TLC since then and is finally the happy healthy puppy he should be. He has a clean bill of health from our vet and is ready to find a new home for himself! You can flip through his pictures to see how he looked when he first came to us vs. how he looks today! He is a very sweet energetic border collie mix who will be an excellent addition to a loving home. If you would like to adopt this sweetheart please fill out an application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hartford 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 Hartford 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 Hartford paves the way for another one to be saved.
