My name is Carson. I was in the Jasper, Texas Animal Control Facility. A new volunteer there wanted to help me find my way out so she started contacting rescues. I don’t think many animals make it out of there. So I know I am one very, VERY lucky boy. I’m told that shortly I will be ready to go to my forever home so I’m looking for my second chance at finding a real family of my own. I’m a 5 year old collie mix. House- trained and crate-trained. I do get along with the other dogs here, but don’t have a problem being your only buddy. I hear talk about cats, but I don’t even know what one is! All I want is someone of my own. I promise to be faithful companion at all times. I won’t ever be very far away. If you would like to meet me you have to fill out an adoption application. That’s how they make sure they find the right home for me. So be sure you go and fill out one.

Carson is a sweet, loving boy. He’s around 5 years old. He was a lucky boy to get out of Jasper. The volunteer that called us had just started there and told us there is not really an adoption program. So many dogs are put down. Which is just heartbreaking. So we wanted help both her and Carson out. The volunteer was trying to make a difference in his life and we wanted to do what we could. Carson will be very close to his person once he bonds which will not take very long. If you are looking for a faithful companion and have a lot of love to give please look at him.

About Texas Collie & Sheltie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Texas Collie Rescue, Inc.

Our Mission

Texas Collie Rescue is made up of individuals that love the breeds with a mission to help Collies and Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) to be placed in the best possible permanent homes. These Collies and Shelties may be found throughout the State of Texas and surrounding states as strays or in shelters, dog pounds, humane organizations, or even homes that for some reason are no longer able to provide the best circumstances for their loved pet. When received, Collies and Shelties will be evaluated and provided with any necessary veterinary care to give them the best possible quality of life. They will be spayed or neutered, checked and treated for heartworms and other internal or external parasites, vaccinated, and micro-chipped.
The Collies and Shelties will be maintained in loving foster homes to return them to health, evaluate their temperament, improve behavioral issues, and wait for that right family to provide their forever home. Potential adopters will be evaluated to determine if they have commitment to provide a loving home with proper care and concern for their new family member, as well as to determine if the family and individual Collie or Sheltie will be a good match for each other.
Texas Collie Rescue will also provide educational resources to help people learn about the proper care and special needs of Collies and Shelties.
Texas Collie Rescue relies on financial contributors, fund-raising efforts and for volunteers to provide foster homes, transportation assistance, and activities involved in support of its goals.
