IS YOUR BORDER COLLIE
LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME?
We realize that sometimes
circumstances change, and you need to find a new home for your dog. We can
help in two ways. First, if it is an emergency situation and if we have a
foster home available, we can take your dog into our rescue program. We
try to only take PUREBRED BORDER COLLIES into our foster homes. The dogs
don't need papers, but they do need to look purebred.
PLEASE NOTE: We will always take a dog back into our
rescue if they were originally adopted from us, regardless of whether they are
purebred or mixed. We sometimes adopt mixed puppies to applicants as it's
difficult to tell if they're purebred when they are very young. Once a dog
has been in our rescue though, they will always be given the opportunity to
return, if necessary. Relinquished dogs must be
spayed or neutered and up to date on their vaccinations. Secondly, if this
isn't an emergency or if you have a BORDER COLLIE MIX, we will be happy to place
your dog's picture and description on the OWNER'S PAGE of our website and
prospective adopters contact you directly. This is usually the best
situation for the dog as they can stay in their familiar surroundings until a
new home has been found.
OUR FOSTER HOMES
ARE USUALLY FULL.
If you would like to be placed on a
waiting list for a foster home, please submit the following application:
WE WILL BE HAPPY TO PLACE YOUR DOG ON

TO PLACE YOUR DOG ON OUR WEBSITE, we
will need the following: A good photo of the dog, a brief description
about the likes and dislikes of the dog, the first name, phone number and email
address of a contact person. We also need proof of spay or neuter, either
a certificate from your veterinarian or your veterinarian's phone number (we
will need the last name of the person the dog is listed under at the Animal
Hospital so we can confirm the information). All of this information can
be sent by email to email@example.com or
you can snail mail it to: Border Collie Rescue P.O. Box 640
Castroville, CA 95012. SUGGESTION:
For the best photos - try to take a picture of your dog from the dogs level.
In the past, we have always offered this listing service for free. We are
now planning to build a facility to house our rescue dogs. This facility
will be for all purebred Border Collies that are in shelters or owner's dogs
that need to be re-homed. We will now be requesting a $25.00 donation to
list dogs on our website. This money will go into the building fund for
our facility. You may send a check with your dog's information to our Post
Office Box or if you are sending the information by email, you may send the
listing donation by PayPal.
If you have any questions, please email
WE HOPE THIS WILL HELP.
