The links below are provided for information purposes - the existence of a link does not imply that Border Collie Rescue recommends or approves of the information provided by the website or the organisation it links to.
Our list below is of organisations you can approach over issues relating to Border Collies. If we have not been able to locate such a rescue in a particular State, that State
is not included in our list unless it is covered by another State.
This list is not definitive and we would welcome suggestions for additions.
if you come across a case of animal cruelty, abuse, poaching or unlicensed hunting/exportation of endangered species, please report it to your local ASPCA branch. If you are concerned about these issues or other local issues of animal testing, animal welfare and animal care, you can get further information and support campaigns via the ASPCA.
