Who We Are|
Border Collies in Need, Inc. was founded in 2007 by a group of non-paid volunteers who have come together to rescue and foster Border Collies (BCs). BCIN is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing Border Collies who are abandoned, neglected, or abused, and placing them into permanent, loving homes. Our dogs come to us from a variety of different sources such as City and County Shelters and strays. We also accept dogs from private individuals, or offer assistance to those needing help to re-home their family pets, who for whatever reason must relinquish their Border Collie(s).
Our ultimate purpose is to match homeless or potentially homeless BCs with loving permanent families, specifically interested in the breed. We will accomplish this by providing temporary foster care, necessary and reasonable veterinary treatment, temperament evaluations of the dogs, and interviewing suitability of potential adopters which includes a “home-check.” Each dog is provided with all necessary and reasonable veterinary treatment, vaccinations, sterilization, and micro-chipping.|
BCIN recognizes the need to expand its horizons beyond the basic rescue duties, and network closely with regional Border Collie clubs which includes herding, agility, and flyball activities for sport and competition. BCIN recognizes that many regional BC clubs do not have funds to support rescue even though they are the ones who are looked upon as the caretakers of the breed. It is through the mutual admiration and respect of this breed that will encourage awareness to their plight by breed education, by promoting rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption.
Adopting a friend|
The dogs in our program are fully tested and evaluated for temperament, sterilized, micro chipped, and all required vaccinations have been administered prior to adoption.
In order to adopt a dog from Border Collies In Need, Inc., you must first submit an Adoption Application. You will be contacted by one of our volunteers to discuss your application and the BC traits you desire for your companion. Once your application has been approved, you will be eligible to adopt. To submit your application, you may apply online. The more information that you can give us on your application helps us to determine if the dog is the right match for you. Additionally, we may recommend others for your consideration that would fit into your lifestyle. We strive to mutually match our dogs into forever homes with adopters. You will be notified by email or telephone when your application has been approved. We schedule adoptions by appointment only or you can visit us at local adoption events which are listed on our Events Page. If you have another dog, you will need to bring it with you to see if they are compatible with one another. We will do a home check, however, pictures of your home, yard, fencing, gates, and where the dog will sleep are encouraged. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for considering rescue first and opening your heart and home to a border collie in need.
