Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate (if necessary) and place the homeless Collies (and any other animals in need) to permanent loving and caring homes. We provide temporary foster homes and appropriate daily & medical care for the animals who are turned into our rescue until the animals find permanent homes of their own.
We are also committed to educate public about health, temperament and appropriate care of Collies as well as promoting the benefits of spay/neuter program.
The Collie Rescue of Tampa Bay, Inc. wants our rescued animals to be adopted by the great family and receive the best care that they deserve AND to stay with the family for the rest of their lives.
