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: $300
3 to 8 years old: $250
9 years and up: $200
Please note that not all our available collies are posted online. Below are a few of the collies currently in foster care.

Here is the lovely gal MoMo. She is 9 years old and just loves cats, dogs, people, bunnies, and guinea pigs. MoMo does have eye anomaly with small eyes and is a little skiddish about shiny floors. In the past she was debarked. She loves to be with people and will follow you around and go for car rides. If MoMo might be the gal for you download an adoption application on this website, or call us at (800) 296-3265.
A big welcome to Coleman, a stately 7 yr. 9 mo-old neutered tri-color male collie! Coleman is currently under evaluation in a foster home, and so far we know he is shy and reserved, but friendly to all, including cats. He is well behaved and walks well on a leash. He will do best in a quieter home with owners who will provide a gentle touch. If Coleman sounds like your kind of guy, please fill out an adoption application available for download on this website or via mail by calling us at (800) 296-3265.
Please join us in welcoming Dunkan, a handsome 6-year-old neutered blue merle collie! Dunkan is friendly with people, other dogs, and cats and has had basic obedience training. He is up to date on all vaccinations and was a good boy at the groomer, though he wasn't a big fan of the noise from the hair dryer! He is currently under evaluation in his foster home. If you are interested in adopting Dunkan, the first step is to fill out an adoption application available for download on this website, or via mail by calling us at (800) 296-3265.
