Collie Rescue is currently seeking foster homes. We provide all medical expenses.
Who We Are
Collie Rescue of the Carolinas is a non-profit organization dedicated to the safety and welfare of purebred rough and smooth collies. Animal shelters, humane societies, animal control, and private citizens in both North Carolina and South Carolina use our services. The typical scenario is that someone contacts a member of our group about a collie that needs a home; often these dogs are only days, even hours, away from death. We then make arrangements to pick up the collie and pay adoption and medical fees required by the surrendering organization.
If all medical work has not already been done, we take the collie to a veterinarian. Before it leaves our care, it must have been vaccinated for rabies and communicable diseases such as distemper and parvo, spayed or neutered, tested for heartworm and treated if infected, and wormed. In addition, we have set broken bones and removed bullets and shot from collies in the program. Our new charge is also brushed out or clipped if the coat is too matted, bathed and treated for fleas and ticks.
Next, each rescue collie is placed in a foster home to receive care until a suitable adoptive home comes along. The foster caregivers treat each dog as they do their own. A photograph and brief biography is placed on our web site at collie.net/~pcc so that prospective adopters know what collies we have available.
When interested adopters contact us, we go over prospects with them and answer any questions. The adopter must have an appropriate fenced area, know something about the responsibilities of dog ownership, and allow the collie to have at least some indoor privileges. When a match is made, the adopter must fill out an adoption contract and agree to a home visit when possible.
Our adoption fee is $250.00. These fees, along with profits from donations and fundraisers go into our rescue treasury to aid in paying expenses on future collies. Many of these dogs have had very difficult lives in the past but are now assured a happier, healthier future with their new families
Adopting a friend
