Who We Are

The Collie and Sheltie Rescue is a volunteer-staff, non-profit organization, 501(c)(3) [Tax ID #541812331], that rescues and places for adoption collies and shelties who can no longer be cared for by well-meaning owners, as well as unwanted, abused, neglected, or abandoned collies and shelties. We are very similiar to your local SPCA but do not have a fixed facility, and we specialize in collies and shelties. The "orphans" we receive are given personalized attention through our foster care network.
Please check us out on Facebook, and if you like what you see let us know.
