About Collie Rescue, Inc.


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 800 collies from shelters and owners who could no longer care for their pets.

Our Mission

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 found.
