The Coronavirus pandemic has had a serious impact on our fundraising abilities.
All the events we would have attended have been cancelled.
Events where we would have had supporters being sponsored have been cancelled.
Other than voluntary donations, our income streams have dried up but we still have dogs to feed and care for and other outgoings to cover.
Times are difficult for all of us but if you are able to spare something to help us be here after the pandemic, please give a donation at
If you can help us, thank you. Either way, please be careful, follow the NHS guidelines and government instructions, look after each other and your faithful friends and stay healthy.
Border Collie Rescue is a registered specialist canine breed rescue organisation based in the UK and covering the whole country.
We are run and staffed by volunteers. It has always been a basic premise of this charity that those involved in helping the dogs should be doing so because they are driven by a love and respect of the breed rather than the expectations of payment for doing a job.
Part of our work involves assessing all the dogs we take in around sheep and other livestock to ascertain their working ability in order to be able to consider these factors before re-homing because we believe any Border Collie, but particularly a puppy, should always have a chance to work and fulfil its natural instincts.
If being a sheepdog is what it needs to do to have a happy and fulfilled life, we should find that out and facilitate it.
Knowledge of a Border Collies herding, chase and working inclinations also help us prevent a puppy or dog with these qualities ending up in homes where their instincts are frustrated, causing problems for people kind enough to offer a home to a rescue dog and causing problems for the dog in adapting to an unsuitable lifestyle.
