Who We Are

We are a group of collie experienced friends located in British Columbia and Alberta who work closely with the Collie Club of Canada and their rescue group and the British Columbia Collie Club. For the past several years we have devoted ourselves to the welfare of our chosen breed, taking in collies in need. Each collie is accessed by a vet, spayed or neutered. It's basic shots are brought up to date and any outstanding medical problem is dealt with. One of our members is a Vet Tech and she cares for the animals that need special health care. Another of our members is a professional obedience instructor and she cares for the collies that arrive with behavioural problems. We work with several proffessional groomers to enable each collie to its arrive in its new home with a well cared for coat.

Adopting a friend

We require each adopter to fill out a thorough Reference Application. This form will give us a good idea of your life style and if a collie with a particular personality and needs will fit into your family. When an applicant is approved and when a collie 'match' seems to be made, we will notify you and set up a time for a home visit. This is to assure us the home that the collie is going to is 'as represented' on the application. Each of our rescue dogs has had some sadness in it's back ground. We want to be sure that the home we release each dog to is the best for it's individual needs. If for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we require that you notify us and we will arrange pick up of the rescue dog and its return to us. Each of our members makes a life time commitment to helping any collie that we have accepted into our rescue programme. We will always try to be there to help you with any questions or problems that arise. We ask no set adoption fee but do request that you make a donation, that you are comfortable with, to help us with our rescue efforts and to cover our vet bills. Medical costs are our greatest concern. Our small group of friends donates all other expenses.
