Border Collie Rescue always has a lot of dogs in our care and a lot of dogs waiting to come in.
We do not 'import' dogs from other countries into the UK as there are too many dogs here already that are homeless and we think the people that support us would want us to help these dogs and their owners, as a priority.

We also believe that if you import dogs from other countries it can be counter productive for those seeking to improve animal welfare laws in those countries because it makes the situation look statistically better than it really is and allows legislators and those who oppose new laws to argue that legislation is not neccesary and the situation is not as bad as claimed.

We only re-home dogs from the UK into homes in the UK.

By taking the time and trouble to properly assess each individual Border Collie we are able to pass on accurate and honest information about the dog to applicants.
By taking the time and trouble to gather information on the homes being offered we are able to  offer suitable matches to applicants, taking the 'pot luck' out of re-homing and providing a responsible service to both the dogs and the people who apply to adopt one.

If you are interested in adopting a Border Collie from us,
please phone 0845 604 4941 during office hours.
(2 pm to 5 pm weekdays)

Please do not write to us or email us about adoption - we want to speak to you before we start the process.
