My story

Badger’s looking for a farm! Badger is a 49 lb., 6 year old, neutered, housebroken Border Collie and Hound mix. Badger’s habit of trying to “herd” a little girl who used to visit landed him at the shelter even though he was fine with older children in the home. Badger has the beautiful markings of a Border Collie minus the static cling and tangles because his fur is Hound dog short. Badger responds well to positive training and leadership; he could earn a place in the Guinness book of world records for “dog who can play fetch the longest.” Hound dogs do not do well in shelters and Badger is no exception. Confinement in such a small space is challenging for Badger, who loves to play and explore. If you prefer dogs to people, and if you have some land you wouldn’t mind sharing with this Border Collie/Hound country boy, please contact Tri-County Animal Rescue Center on Facebook, or call 814-918-2032, or email:

Additional adoption info

Our dog adoption fee is $125 and we require either a spay/neuter deposit of $50 or a certificate for spay/neuter at our vet may be purchased for $100 (unless already spayed/neutered which would change the adoption fee) if the option of the $50 deposit is chosen, it will be returned after proof of the surgery.
Our cat adoption fee is $75 for kittens and $35 for adult cats. The cat adoption fee includes spay or neuter costs. All cats and dogs receive a wellness check and are current on all vaccinations appropriate for their age.

The adoption process includes filling out an adoption application and providing references. Any current pets in the household must be spayed or neutered (unless not recommended by a veterinarian for health reasons) and current on vaccinations. If adopting a cat/kitten you must agree to not have it declawed.
If living in a rental property, we must obtain permission from the landlord before an adoption can be approved. The dog or cat will be placed with the potential adopter that best matches the needs of the animal.
