If you found this page, you are interested in
adopting a Border Collie from Rescue. Before beginning, please
take the time to be sure this breed is the right dog for you.
All dogs take time and require a purpose or they will use
their boundless energy in destructive ways. We have found
that when this happens they often end up abandoned to rescue
or a local shelter, sometimes to a terrible fate. The volunteers
with Blue Ridge Border Collie Rescue have established a sturdy
adoption process that we hope, will ensure that the dogs we
place have a home where they will be loved, understood and
given the chance to be the dog that they were bred to be.
Our goal is to help these dogs find their forever home with
the family that they truely belong with.
If you are prepared, owning a dog can be very
rewarding. Please fill out the following application. One
of our volunteers from will contact you and schedule a visit
to your home to meet with you and your family. We do this
to help you understand Border Collies and to ensure that you
are prepared to give them a wonderful home. After determining
that you are prepared for a Border Collie, our volunteer will
assist you in locating the dog that will best fit your situation.
An applicant will only be considered as "approved"
when they have completed the following application, that application
has been reviewed and accepted by our volunteers, and the
Home Visit has been completed and reviewed. There is a standard
donation required of $250 to pay for medical costs associated
with our dogs. This may vary if a dog has a specific medical
situation while in foster care.
Some of our dogs have special needs requirements from a home.
Our goal is to find the very best home that we can for each
of our dogs. This may not be the first home to come along.
