Choosing to add a pet to your family is a big step. Pets add lots of laughter, fun and companionship to our lives, but they are also a big responsibility. There are many factors to consider before adopting a dog, such as your lifestyle, personality, financial situation and housing situation. If you’re considering adopting a dog, you may want to ask yourself a few questions:
If you’ve answered these questions and feel that adding one of our dogs to your family is the next step, read our adoption procedures below and fill out our adoption application. Also take a look at the dogs in our program noting their designation (e.g. under assessment, medical hold, adoptable or adoption pending). TSCR is constantly processing intakes and adoption applications, so a dog that is on our website may be adopted by the time your application is approved. Do not worry, we will continue to work with you to find your next family member.
Although collies and shelties are generally sweet-natured dogs, dispositions range from extremely gentle and laid back to playful and rambunctious. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and checked for other health problems prior to adoption. In order to continue our rescue efforts and help more dogs, we require an adoption donation ranging from $125 – $550, depending on the age and health of the individual dog.
