Please be sure to read our Adoption Process page prior to submitting an application.
Our goal with each and every Collie that comes into the care of Collie Rescue Network
is to make that perfect match between the Collie and your family. Just like people,
each Collie is an individual with his/her own special needs, quirks, likes, dislikes
and an individual personality. Not every Collie is right for every home (some Collies
are couch potatoes, some would make great agility partners, some are quiet and laid-back
in the house and others will bark at every falling leaf that blows past the house).
Our adoption process is designed to help make that perfect match happen. If you
are unable or unwilling to complete all of the steps outlined below we will be unable
to assist you with an adoption through our rescue.

Before you adopt, make sure the Collie is the right breed for you. Many people think
“Lassie” when they think of Collies and forget that Collies are a herding breed and
come with some typical herding breed quirks. Read the Is a Collie Right For You
page before you make that final decision. Also check out the All About Collies link
for information about the breed history, health issues related to Collies and more.
If you’re not ready to adopt right now, have you thought about fostering a Collie?
Foster Homes provide the safe, loving environment to a Collie who needs a place
to wait for his/her furever home to come along. Read more about fostering here.
If you can’t foster a Collie, there are lots and lots of other ways you can help
Collie Rescue Network and make a direct impact on the lives of the rescue Collies!
Check out our Volunteer Page to see how you can help today!
Please note that there is an associated $350.00 adoption donation for all our rescue
dogs. This cost helps off-set the costs incurred by the Collie while in our care.
To date the average cost per Collie in care is just over $600.00. The adoption
donation helps cover a portion of that cost.
