Border Collie Rescue (NEBCR)
New England Border Collie Rescue, Inc. is an ALL VOLUNTEER, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Since 2000, our network of volunteers has been working together to find homes for stray, abandoned or unwanted
Border Collies. Our coverage area extends to the New England states of Massachusetts,
Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, as well as Eastern New
York State. We have no shelter. All dogs are fostered in volunteer homes for a minimum of 2 weeks before being available for adoption.
Adopting a rescued Border Collie
Please note that you MUST
FIRST fill out an adoption application AND have a home visit BEFORE being considered
for any NEBCR dog. Our rescue representatives cannot consider you to adopt ANY
dog until your application has been submitted and approved. All information
on our adoption process, including a link to our application, can be found on
our website www.NEBCR.org. Adopting
a dog from us is a process that takes time. You must have patience.
You should always choose a breed/dog that matches your CURRENT lifestyle.
Border Collies are not for everyone, and contrary to popular misconception,
most are NOT typically "great family pets" and/or "wonderful with children."
(If that were true, there would not be nearly as many in rescue!)
inquiring about adopting a dog from us, we recommend you do a little research
to find out if a Border Collie really is right for your family. For this
information, and details on our adoption process, please see our web site
goal is to find the best possible match for each dog so that they never have
to come into rescue again.
