Cutty (Available)










3/14/17: Feeling so much better after by bath and I really got the spa treatment. The ladies that bathed me were so gentle but sad as the water ran red from all the flea poop on my skin. I feel so bad that when the bath was over I shook to get the water off and slung dead tape worms into the ladies hair. Needless to say she screamed and went home to give herself a bath. With those long toenails gone I can walk so much better but overtime they have caused my feet to splay or be flat. My blood work was good and I will be neutered in 2 weeks. Teeth are in good shape and no need for a dental. Thank goodness I do not have heartworms or any tick disease. I’m looking forward to my new home.









3/13/17: I’m a 9 year old fellow at about 70 pounds and here at the rescue because my owner passed away. My toenails are so long they curl around and I have a huge hot spot on my back from me biting at those fleas. Headed to the vet tomorrow for a medicated bath, blood work and a nail trim. It will feel so good to be able to walk normal again and have my skin clean of the flea dirt. If my blood work is good I will be neutered and have my teeth cleaned later. I’m a very sweet guy and would appreciate your prayers.

Thank you James Silverstorf  and Susan Hopkins for helping with my medical cost and caring about me.


Bonnie Blue (Available)










3/2/17: I am a 7 year old, blue, smooth collie girl at about 80 pounds. Needless to say I have been put on a diet. My folks are seniors and with dad having to have back surgery they are moving to a smaller place. Harley and I came into rescue together and he is my son. Birthing babies has taken a toll on me and cause me to be incontinent. However I am on medicine and it is controlling the leaking very well. The rescue will pay for my medicine for this the rest of my life. I have a very nice personality and a gentle lady.


Harley (Available)










3/12/17: Well this week I went to the vet and was neutered although I was already a great guy. I have the most gentle personality and not an alpha fellow at all. I am housetrained and don’t mind being in a crate either. I’m tall enough you don’t have to bend over to bet me. With my short coat there is no matting and easy to keep me brushed.









3/2/17: Hello folks, my name is Harley and I am a 3 year old, smooth collie boy. My folks are seniors and with dad having to have back surgery they are moving to a smaller place. I have two blue eyes that see just fine and weigh about 76 pounds. That’s my mom, Bonnie that came into the rescue with me. I’m very much a lover and like to be touching.


Derby (Available)










3/14/17: Met this creature today and was a little afraid of her with all that jerking and jumping around she does. My DNA says I am 50% collie (mom) and 50% American Staffordshire Terrier (dad). Since I look so much like dad you would probably think I would mostly have his nature but I don’t. You see I am afraid of men because they can be loud and scary. When I see them I tuck my tail in and try to hide or get away. I’m ok with young boys though and not afraid of them. The men that come to the rescue are working with me on this but I would really like a home with a woman that needs me. I am the most gentle fellow you will ever meet and so very smart.




1/5/17:  Here I am on the way home from being neutered.  I ride very well in the car and like to look out the window.



















12/30/16:  You are probably going “WOW” what is that fellow doing on the collie rescue page? Well actually my mom was a collie but it seems I got all of dads bulldog looks. However I got moms personality. A sweet, gentle fellow that even likes cats and chickens. I am 2 ½ years old and about 80 pounds. Pretty good on the leash, housetrained and crate trained. Ziggy and I came into the rescue together. I going this week to be neutered.

Thank you Claudia Kelley and Susan Veld for caring about the mix collies also.


Ziggy (Foster Care)


ziggy-3 ziggy-2






1/9/17:  I’m sorry to report Ziggy has advanced Dermatomyositis and he will not be getting better.  He is already having trouble eating and drinking.  This is a disease that only gets worse and he will stay with me until he is ready to cross the bridge.

12/30/16: Just arrived here yesterday and although I may look like an old fellow I am 3 ½ years old. The tips of my ears have been eaten off by flies and my body is covered with mange mites. I’m frightened and not sure what is happening to me but they have some loving hands here that pet me. It will be a while before I am healthy enough to be neutered but please check back to see my progress.

Thank you Deborah McNaughton, Lee Walters, Gerrie Oliver, Kim Moore, Doug & Lisa Weaver, Robert Blumenthal, Anita Price, Linda Plante, Stephen Fishel, Vincent Binek, Michele Hallman, Kimberly Agzigian, Kimberlee Rettberg, Valeri Rothbauer, Deborah Brown, Jeannette Poling, Gilbert Olvera, Barbara Crockett, Deena Cuda, Jane Olvera, Roberta Healy and Barbara Rosso for helping me to get better.


Wizzard (Adoption Pending)



1/29/17: I came all the way from Georgia and the great shelter folks gave me a ride half way so I could get to rescue. I was picked up as a stray and that was my lucky day as I have heartworms that will need to be treated and will also be neutered. The rescue folks are guessing me to be about 4 years old and I am 50 pounds but need to gain a few. I’m a fun loving, happy kind of guy that gets along with all the others. I like to run and play but when it is time for petting I get very serious about that.






Bo (Adopted)


3/9/17: Starting my new life today with the Clark’s. I am loving my new home and my new little sister who is ten. She sure loves a good run around the yard but she is the boss and I respect that. I’m getting to know his house and yard really well and I sure am glad to have found this wonderful home with Tony and Becky.
















3/4/17: Here I am at the rescue because my owners were older folks. We didn’t have a fence so I was roaming the neighborhood and the neighbors didn’t like that. I am a one year old fellow that is housetrained and will be neutered next week.


Atticus (Adopted)


3/15/17: Anita came to take me home today and my new name will be Fenn. David kept me company on the long ride home and I was a good boy. Once we were home I met Ellie Pearl and Emma Rose. They will play with me and teach me the things I will need to learn growing up. We are already signed up for puppy classes and Anita is already finding out how smart I am. Yep, that was my lucky day I went to the animal shelter or I might not have found this great home.














3/7/17:  I’m the best little fellow with a sweet personality.  I sleep quietly all night and have had no accidents in my crate.  I get along great with the other collies and even that sheep.









3/2/17: Just arrived today with my brother Pacino and mom Asya. Our folks took us to the animal shelter and never came back. I am a 4 month old, tri, smooth fellow.


Sailor (Adopted)


3/11/17: I will be joining the Hitchcock family and going home with Tiffany. After getting home I met dad and we bonded right away. We have been working on the leash, and I am already learning stop and go. I’m showing Tiffany and Jarrett what a smart fellow I am and a loving guy also. I sure have hit the jackpot and thanks to everyone that helped to make this wonderful home possible for me.














2/28/17: I’m the new guy here at the rescue because my elderly owner could not care for me. I’m one year old and a slim fellow at 49 pounds although I need to gain some weight. Today the volunteers brushed out the mats but my rear had to be shaved. It sure feels good to have the air on my skin again. I learn very quickly and have a strong desire to please. Unfortunately I am blind in one eye but it doesn’t hinder me any.  I will be going for my neuter and a bath Thursday the 2nd.


Rocky (Adopted)


3/6/17: We are two happy guys and I am going home with Vincent today. He sure knows a great collie when he sees one and drove all the way from Wisconsin to meet me. We will do some bonding on the long trip home and other guy things. Vincent is exactly the person I was looking for and thanks everyone that helped to make this possible.















2/26/17:  Will you just look at me now after my grooming and bath.  I am feeling so much better and know I am beautiful.  Really am enjoying the freedom of running in the fenced yard and playing with the others here.



2/19/17: I’m here at the rescue because my owner was elderly and could no longer care for me. A very nice fellow gave me a ride to the collie rescue and my life so I can have a real home with love and care. This is where I have lived all my life, in a pen with no shelter. Yes I had a dog house but after adopting a kitten I let her have the house. Yesterday the volunteers worked on getting some of the mats out and I got a good brushing. Tuesday I will be going for a much needed bath, dental and neuter. I am a very sweet fellow that just turned 7 years old in January and 72 pounds.


Pacino (Adopted)







3/4/17: Went home with the Frankenberg’s today. I know I am in good hands because they adopted Fiona and Fritzy also from the rescue. We all romped and played outside in my new yard. What a big day I have had and settled down with the others for a nap.









3/2/17: Just arrived today with my brother Atticus and mom Asya. Our folks took us to the animal shelter and never came back. I am a 4 month old, tri, rough fellow.


Asya (Adopted)


3/5/17: What a great family I have found and going home with the DeNauro’s. I will have a collie friend to play with and the little dog is my puppy. We made it home safely and I am getting used to this wonderful life. Thanks everyone who helped me to find them.









3/4/17:  The volunteers got to know me a little better today and found out I am very well trained.  I know sit, down, heel on or off the leash and would make a wonderful therapy dog.  Needless to say they all fell in love with me.















3/2/17: I am a 7 year old, tri, smooth collie girl at about 55 pounds. Atticus and Pacino are my boys and our people took us to the animal shelter. I just arrived today and the volunteers are getting to know me but one thing is for sure that I will not be having any more babies. I’m being spay next week.


Laddie (Adopted)



2/18/17: Well I sure found the perfect folks for me when the Smith’s came to visit. I get to be the only dog with all the attention and it was love at first sight. Since arriving home I have explored the house, yard and my very own dog bed. My favorite place is to settle on a rug in front of the hearth for long naps. Bill, Kathy and I are going to do everything together and they say I am the most handsome fellow in the neighborhood.













2/5/17: I sure love to play with toys and run around the yard with them. Sometimes I will even bring them back to be thrown again. Did I tell you that I am perfectly housetrained and will bark at the door when I need to go out? I’m also crate trained and will go in when I am asked. I know sit, come and love to follow you around.


1/29/17: Just arrived Thursday because my person could no longer keep me. A small fellow at about 50 pounds and six years old. I would prefer to be the only dog but cats are ok with me.
