Adopting a friend
Prospective adopters should review our Adoption Procedures and return it, either by e-mail or regular mail.
You can send the Adoption Application as an attachment to an email to our Adoption coordinator for Southwest Collie Rescue
or mail the application to SWCR, 52 Estrada Calabasa, Santa Fe, NM 87506.
Or you can simply send it to the volunteer you may already have contacted. If you e-mail the application please include a subject line such as 'Adoption Application for SWCR Collie' so that your e-mail won't be junked by spam filters. You will be notified of its receipt within 24 hours. If you do not receive an acknowledgement within this time period, please contact any SWCR representative and let us know that your application was not received.
All adopters will need to be visited in their homes by an SWCR volunteer. Adopters should have have a securely fenced yard, a bed indoors for the collie at night, and a lot of love and attention to give to their rescued collie.
Our adoption fees of $225 for puppies (younger than 12 months), $175 for adult collies (12 months old to under 10 years, and $125 for Seniors (10 years or older) helps cover some of the high costs of rescuing a collie who has been neglected or abandoned. All of our collies are thoroughly examined by a veterinarian; spayed or neutered, if necessary; brought up to date on vaccinations; tested for heartworm, and given a fecal exam. If many ticks are present, we also test for erlichia. Some collies may require X-rays, dental cleaning, surgery and various medications.
Due to high gas prices and volunteer limitations, adopters interested in collies being fostered in distant locations should plan on participating in the transport of their new collies to their new homes. Depending on location and distance, this may require the adopter to arrange for the entire transport of their new collie. Adopters who are unable to participate in transport should seek the advice of their local SWCR representative.
