To provide homeless collies and other family-friendly dogs a safe haven; to reduce the number of unwanted pets by altering all dogs in our rehoming program; to educate the public about the importance of altering pets; and to share that owning a pet is a lifetime commitment.
We work to ensure the success of each adoption we facilitate. This begins when a dog is rescued and immediately seen by a veterinarian. Dogs are spayed or neutered, and any medical issues are treated. Once a dog is healthy and socialized, it is placed for adoption. Each potential adopter goes through an application process that includes an interview and home visit. Following adoption, we provide adopters with ongoing support, including information about care, feeding, and grooming.

Senior to Senior
Many senior dogs are seen as unadoptable, and many senior citizens are in need of companionship but do not have the extra income to support a pet. The Senior to Senior program matches individuals over 55 and older with limited financial resources with available senior dogs. Participants must be physically able to handle a dog and offer a safe home. The senior dogs placed through this program are older and quieter, and can provide companionship. We provide all food and veterinarian care for the dog; we only ask that the senior provide love.
