28th Annual Gathering at Sunnybank: A Sunnybank Jubilee

TSCR is excited to announce that we will have a booth at the 28th Sunnybank Jubilee! This year’s Annual Gathering at Sunnybank will be held from August 17-18 at 381 Terhune Drive, Wayne, NJ 07470.

Here’s what the Collie Health Foundation has to say about the Annual Gathering:

The Gathering is held the third weekend in August at the ‘mecca’ of Colliedom, Sunnybank, in Wayne, New Jersey. Sunnybank was the home of Albert Payson Terhune, renowned dog writer, Collie breeder, and owner. This magical place, Sunnybank, served as the setting for many of his famous dog stories. Unfortunately, the Sunnybank house was demolished in 1969, but nine acres of the property remain for the public to enjoy. Here you can see the graves of the Lad, Bruce, and Jean, as well as the graves of the other Collie greats like Wolf, Fair Ellen, Treve, and Gray Dawn at Champion Rock. Stop by the old puppy run, and relax as the Master and Mistress did in years gone by at the Lily Pool.

The most loved of any of the Collie Health Foundation sponsored events brings fans of the Master and Collie fanciers from all over the world. The festivities have been managed for over 20 years by our own Madam of Sunnybank, Gerrie Oliver. The first day is devoted to the Sunnybank story, Albert and Anice, and of course the Sunnybank Collies. Speakers bring the past back to life and the breeze brings us to understand the magic that is Sunnybank. Saturday afternoon may be devoted to clinics and Sunnybank centered events! The ‘Madam’ hosts a wonderful dinner for all of her friends that is part of this glorious weekend. The Madam has a special cake each year to fit the occasion – it is always beautiful, but hurry to get a picture! Then it is off to bed to be fresh for Sunday’s activities.

Sunday brings us the Virtues Match, the Lad Memorial Match, and so much more. There are silent auctions, premium items with the theme of this year’s Gathering, and promotional items from CHF, plus exciting live auctions each day. Come join us, and hear the trumpeting barks of Collies that fill the air over Sunnybank once again.

Held by and for the benefit of the Collie Health Foundation!

Seasonal Fundraisers

TSCR Calendar Fundraiser

We’ve been receiving a lot of questions about the TSCR Calendar Fundraiser. Unfortunately, calendar sales have been waning over the past few years, so last year, we made the difficult decision to discontinue the Calendar Fundraiser. We’re deeply sorry for any disappointment that this may cause, but we hope that you’ll consider supporting our rescue through our other fundraising opportunities and events.

We also have some exciting news coming soon about some official TSCR merch, which will be sold to raise funds for our rescue! Keep up with the website, our Facebook page, or our Instagram account for updates and more info. 

In addition to TSCR events, we would love to populate our Event Calendar with other local or online events that would be of interest to our volunteers, fosters, adopters, and supporters (e.g., training events, therapy certifications, vaccination or low-cost spay/neuter clinics). To request to have an event added to the TSCR Event Calendar, please submit the following information via our site’s Contact Form:
