Our mission: To end the indiscriminate breeding practices of irresponsible breeders, to educate the public about the lifetime responsibilities of caring for a pet, including the necessity of spaying and neutering, and to promote the return of undying love and devotion collies offer their owners. Too many purebred collies are found as strays, in animal shelters, or in humane societies. We hope to eliminate the euthanasia of these collies.
TSCR, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is an all-volunteer, foster-based Collie rescue based in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee and West Virginia, with volunteers also located in Illinois and Pennsylvania. Our rescue provides veterinary care and temporary homes for owner-surrendered, stray, neglected or abused dogs. We work with shelters to pull collies and shelties in need of rescue and to find permanent adoptive homes.
We are listed as a recognized rescue group with the Collie Club of America.
Adoptable Animal Types & Adoption Fees
Tristate Collie Rescue has the following adoptable animal types available and their adoption fees are as follows:
- Dogs: $200.00
All of their adoptable animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, current on all DHPP/FVRCP and Bordatella vaccines, microchipped and if age appropriate, all of their animals are rabies vaccinated.
Potential adoptees complete a comprehensive application and owner requirements (e.g. not charged with abuse, keep dog as house pet, provide exercise, sufficient food, water, shelter and veterinary care). The application asks names of all people living in the house; willingness to provide needed medical treatment; veterinarian names, clinic and phone numbers; names, ages, and types of pets owned in past 5 years and what happened to them if not currently owned; where the dog will be kept when the owner is not home; approval for a home visit; and agreement to surrender custody of the dog if TSCR determines that the conditions of the agreement or the dog is not receiving proper care.
