Jersey - Border Collie!'s Info...
|Breed:||Border Collie||Color:||White - With Black||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Meet Jersey! He is a housetrained, 60 lb, 3.5 year old male Border Collie. This boy needs a job! Like most Border Collies, he is active, smart, and has a "very high" activity level. His temperament is described as a "party animal". He is young and intact and we will have him neutered before adoption to help "calm" him; hormones reduce usually within one month of surgery. He lives with and is fine with dogs and cats, has no experience with livestock, and is not that great with strangers. Jersey is nervous of unpredictable young children, so older or no children would be Jersey's best home. He is good inside with the run of the house and loves to go outside for long walks and playtime. He is reliable with an invisible fence. Though he is obedient, Jersey needs a good leader so he can feel safe enough to relax. In return, he will give you the kind of love, tricks, and attention that only a Border Collie can!
If you are interested in making Jersey a part of your family, please go to our website www.mpsiar.com and complete an application under the "Adoptions" section and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rescue Group Info...
We are a volunteer-based, donation-only service that provides non-judgemental, supportive help for people who are surrendering their companion animals. We also provide support to people who are looking for a new furry addition to their family. We: -provide free advice and suggestions to people who are experiencing issues with their pets, including but not limited to behavioural issues, training advice, surrender help, and much more -spay/neuter education, advice and referrals -put ads up on petfinder.com and kijiji and around the community -screen potential new homes over the telephone by asking many in-depth questions -do a home visit to make sure the people are "as good as they sound on the phone" -contact their vet and do a vet check to make sure they get a good reference -provide transportation from the old home to the new home -get the old owners to sign a Surrender Form -get the new owners to sign an Adoption Agreement Form This is done on a donation-basis only and circumstances may vary based on the situation. We believe in the power of community, respect and inclusion. Our volunteers have over 10 years experience in the animal rescue field, have rescued hundreds of animals, have worked in the field and have College Diplomas in Animal Care Work. We are committed to helping people find homes for their pets because we care about our community and love animals. If you are someone who is surrendering their animal we know how hard it can be and we know you would want your pet to go to the right home, not a home where your pet will be subjected to neglect, cruelty and abuse.
