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 unwanted, abused, neglected, or abandoned collies and shelties. We are very similiar to your local SPCA, but we specialize in collies and shelties. The "orphans" we receive are given personalized attention through our foster care network.
