Collies that arrive into rescue are often no different than collies from a reputable breeder. More often than not, they are surrendered to the Collie Rescue League of New England because their owners are experiencing a major life event like divorce, relocation, or financial changes to a household. Generally, they are healthy and were raised in home environments where they were loved and cared for.
In some cases, they have not had the benefit of a good start in life. In these situations, our foster homes may work longer to get them settled and prepare them for their new forever homes. Because of their gentle nature and intelligence the collie breed is great at adapting to changes in their lives and will thrive when given a second chance!
Collie Rescue League of New England collects adoption fees for collies they release from their care. This money goes directly towards CRLNE to help cover all of the expenses accrued during a collie’s stay with us. All of our collies are groomed, vetted, and neutered or spayed before adoption so they are healthy and ready to go to their new home when the right match is found. All information we learn about the collie’s medical status and temperament while they are in their CRLNE foster home is shared with the adopter.
Our fees are broken down by age for puppies, adults, and seniors:
Less than 3 years old: $325
3 to 8 years old: $275
9 years and up: $225
Please note that not all our available collies are posted online. Below are a few of the collies currently in foster care.
Mia is an 11-year-old spayed female rough-coated sable and white collie who is currently being evaluated by her foster parents. She loves all people, other dogs, and cats. She likes going for car rides and enjoys being groomed. She would like a quiet home with owners who would be able to spend lots of time with her. Mia knows several commands such as sit, stay, down, come, and paw. We were told Mia is just a perfect collie and we agree!
