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.
Please join us in welcoming Troubadour, a 7-year-old Tri-color rough coated neutered male collie. This collie is the sweetest most gentle soul, and is ready to go to his forever home. If you are interested in adopting this handsome boy, please complete an adoption application, available for download on this website or by calling us at 800-296-3265.
Charlie is a 2 1/2-year-old Tri-color rough coated neutered male collie currently under evaluation in a foster home. So far we know he likes cats but will do best in a home with no other dogs. Charlie can be timid in new situations. He is learning basic commands and would blossom in a home that can continue to work with him to gain confidence and social skills.
Jack and Autumn
Jack (R) and Autumn (L) are young (approximately 1-2 years old) collies who are on the small side. Jack is a Tri-color rough coated neutered male collie, and Autumn is a color-headed white spayed girl. They would like to be adopted together. These collies are affectionate and playful, and will make a wonderful addition to a family who can give them the opportunity to play and learn.
