Ninety-Three Collies Found New Homes In 2022



With your help and support, we were able to find forever homes for 93 collies in 2022. From youngsters entering the world for the first time to seniors waiting for that special someone to make the rest of their life the best it can be, It certainly turned out to be a very busy year for us all.
With the gracious help of our volunteers and the support of everyone in this group, we were able to welcome The College Kids and the Illinois puppies into the world. We helped entire groups of collies such as The Cookies and the Illinois Fifteen come to the rescue from less than ideal situations. They certainly touched our lives dearly.
Our volunteers sacrificed their time over and over to transport many collies to the rescue and do whatever was needed to be done. This Facebook Group has gone above and beyond in supporting CRC with whatever was needed, whenever it was needed. You never failed us and that is so greatly appreciated.
So, I close with giving you my traditional year-end gift of a collage showing all adoptions you helped make happen in 2022.

Illinois Hoarding Situation













Thank you to everyone that helped these collies to find their forever homes.  They have all been adopted.

CRC has been given ownership of 15 of the collies from the Illinois Hoarding situation. The dogs have been at the rescue since Sept 14, but there were some legal issues that had to be cleared up and we were asked not to share any information until it was resolved. We finally got the word that it was done. All dogs will be spayed and neutered as appointments allow.

A small group of CRC volunteers drove to Mercer County IL to retrieve the collies. The drive was 15 hours up and back the very next day, on little sleep. The collies arrived at CRC around 3 am. Some of the collies required veterinary care and were taken to the vet. Most were transferred to a local kennel for some serious grooming and care. All collies came to us vaccinated, microchipped, and vetted for any medical issues prior to our receipt. There are 5 smoothies and 10 roughs, lots of tri’s and some merles. There was a single sable headed white. There are 8 girls and 7 boys. Some are immediately friendly and happy. Others are going to need some time to trust. One thing is for certain – they are in a much better place now and they will all have the chance to have the types of lives that all Collies deserve.  Just click below to watch a movie of our journey to CRC.
