We are now taking new applications to adopt dogs - but only from rural locations where there are no children under 8 years of age and where there is an adult at home most of the time to give the dog companionship.
Please see our website for details and for our COVID-19 donation appeal. Thank you.
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.
