Collie Rescue of Indiana
Our Featured Pet...
Considering a pet from rescue? Note to adopters
Lassie, Cleo, Rin Tin Tin and Toto don't show up in rescue. We don't
get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely trained,
perfectly behaved dog. We get the leftovers. Dogs that other people
have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized,
ineffectively "trained," and badly treated. Most Rescue dogs have had
it. They've been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They've
never had proper veterinary care, kind and consistent training, or
sufficient company. They've lived outside, in a crate, or in the
basement. They're scared, depressed and anxious. Some are angry. Some
are sick. Some have given up.
But we are Rescue and we don't give up. We never give up on a dog. We
know that a dog is a living being, with a spirit and a heart and
feelings. Our dogs are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are
part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and
respect as the next Westminster champion. So please, please don't
come to rescue in the hopes of getting a "bargain," or indeed
of "getting" anything. Come to Rescue to give, to love, to save a
life -- and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in
ways you never thought possible. I can promise you this -- a rescue
dog will make you a better person.
