Carolina Border Collie Rescue

Durham, NC

Our Mission

Carolina Border Collie Rescue (CBCR) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 1991 by a group of dedicated volunteers to provide rescue, education, and counseling to prevent the mistreatment and neglect of border collies in the Carolinas.


Through the support of many dedicated volunteers and generous supporters, CBCR has become a successful and well-known all-volunteer, foster-home based rescue group.  We have over 50 active volunteer members and utilize their talents to place an average of 40-50 dogs annually in new, permanent and loving homes.


Many of the dogs we rescue were abandoned at a shelter, found as a stray or relinquished to us by their owners. Currently CBCR covers NC, SC, VA, and parts of GA and TN. Dogs are fostered in our volunteer foster families’ homes which are mostly located in the Carolinas.


All of CBCR’s dogs receive medical assessments and veterinary
