Every Collie Deserves a Second Chance

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.

Hi there. It's Sadie. I hope you think I'm pretty.
I'm 10 years old but I love to go for walks, play and be with people. I'm ready to go to my forever home where I would like to be treated like a Princess as I'm told that is what I am. Being the only dog with lots of attention would be so much fun! 




Sassy is a lovely lady who is under evaluation and enjoying the activity at her foster home. She just turned 10 years old.




We welcome Molly to Collie Rescue League of New England. Molly is a lovely senior who loves to go for walks and roll in the grass. She doesn't mind laying on a deck in the sun either. We think she is gorgeous. Don't you?





We'd like to introduce you to our new boy Alex. This very handsome lad is 3 years old and is known by his foster Mom as a love bug. Plus, he thinks that he is a lap dog! He is being evaluated and is looking forward to being with his forever family. We do feel that he would do best in a home with no cats and older children. P.S. He loves his toys.




Hey Collie Lovers! We would like to introduce you to a sweet 4 year old girl named Nani. She loves squeaky toys and finding things in the yard to bring to you. (You will be requested by her to acknowledge her gift). This smooth gal is a bit overweight but her Foster Mom has been working with her on that. She gets along with other dogs and likes to ride in the car.
