We want to thank David and Bobby for donating this huge 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline Van to Collie Rescue of the Carolinas.  Yesterday the volunteers loaded it up with collie wares and made it official by placing the CRC Rescue Magnets on the sides and backdoor.  This van will hold everything we need to take to the reunion and shows we do.  Also should we have an emergency situation it can transport many collies.

6/26/14:  We are six boys and one girl at about three months old.  Our mom was a tri color collie and papa was a rolling stone so no one knows what breed he was.  The family kept mom and had her spayed so she wouldn’t have any more puppies.  However they left all of us at the shelter so the rescue folks sprung us today.  We are going to need all vaccinations and spay or neuter.  If you would like to help us on our way to a good life with a loving family just hit that donate button.  Please check back to see how we are doing and as the rescue folks get to know each one of us.

These great folks have donated to help with my medical needs:  Susan Hopkins, Gordana Kosutic, Anne White, Mary Jane Checchi, Susan Huneycutt, Rebecca Fox, Anne Oswald, Pamela Brown, John Borman, Greta Duckett, Thomas Jeffries, Carol Lightcap, James Sain, Kimberlee Rettberg, Kathy Carroll and Laurina Emery-Jacobs
