Collie Rescue Needs Your Help!
As you know, most Collies who find their way to Collie Rescue, Inc (CRI) have been through a lot. With proper veterinary care, a consistent and healthy diet, and lots of love, these remarkable creatures are capable of returning to health and provide so much to those who adopt them.
Getting the Collies cleaned up, however, takes resources. The "Sponsor a Collie" section will spotlight a Collie who is need of non-routine veterinary care. In 2010, the average cost per Collie was over $450 and almost 60% were not spayed or neutered. If you look at our adoption fee, you can see that CRI could not help the Collies that we do, without your generosity in giving donations.

CRI needs to get the word out that we have LOTS of collies who need homes.
With your help, we can do it!
Our love of collies has brought us together to focus on the breed we
love the most! The rescue is comprised of many volunteers with diverse backgrounds such as collie enthusiasts, veterinarians, behaviorists, and collie club members. Our volunteers have been rescuing collies in Virginia and Maryland, as well as networking with collie rescues in nearby states since the beginning of 2005. Since its inception, Collie Rescue, Inc. has saved well over 275 collies from shelters and owners who no longer wanted their pets.
Collie Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Our mission
is to place stray, abandoned and surrendered collies into loving and
permanent homes, educate the public about the collie breed, and promote
responsible pet care. Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy haven
for all dogs placed in our care until loving, adoptive homes can be

Potential adopters complete a short adoption
online. CRI adoption coordinators evaluate the application and follow up within 10 days if they feel that CRI currently has a dog who will be a good match.
If there is a good match, you will receive a call and a more extensive interview will take place. At that time, you too can interview us about our adoptable dogs. After the interview, our coordinators check veterinary references, verify home ownership, conduct home visits and arrange a meet between you and the adoptable dog. If you already have a dog, you must bring that dog to meet ours. We feel that getting to know our adopters (and their pets) results in a better placement for both the pet and the families!
CRI provides as much information as we can on each pet’s history, disposition and health. After a placement, we follow up with each new adopter to offer assistance during the adjustment period. We want each of our animals to find the right home for them, not just any home. Likewise, we want our adopters to find the pet who best matches their lifestyle and interests. If for any reason the match is not perfect, as we had hoped, the dog must be returned to our organization.
