Marissa's Story...
Marissa is a 10 months, border collie mix. She has a pretty black and white coat. Marissa needs time to understand interactions with people, if someone gives her time and attention she will make a great pet. She may be very nervous around small children. Marissa seems like she wants attention from people but gets submissive if the person is too eager when they approach her. Adoption fees include spaying or neutering, vaccinations (excluding Rabies), ID microchip, collar, a dog training DVD, de-worming treatments, flea/ ear mite treatments, and temperament testing. There will be an addition to the adoption price, if you reside in our county, and you want to obtain a current dog license from us.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marissa, a Chambersburg 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 Chambersburg, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Chambersburg.

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