TSCR understands circumstances arise where owners can no longer care for their dogs, a breeder or show dog may be retiring and in need of a home or a death may have occurred leaving a dog in need. The decision to give your collie, sheltie, or mix thereof a second chance at a happy life is applauded and respected! As a safe and reassuring alternative to internet listings, newspaper advertisements, or shelter abandonment, TSCR has successfully placed over 2,000 Collies, shelties, and mixes since its inception in 1984.
All TSCR adopters are carefully screened and matched according to the individual needs of each dog. Having every dog’s best interest in mind is at the heart of our cause, which also means we never release any of our dogs to shelters. You can feel confident that TSCR will find the best possible home for your family member.
Upon entry into our program, a TSCR dog receives a thorough examination from our veterinarians, including MDR1 swab, vaccinations, treatment, medication, and any necessary surgeries before going to a foster home. We supply monthly heartworm and flea preventative for every dog in our care. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization; if at all possible, please consider making a (tax-deductible) donation before turning your dog over to us. This will help defray some of the expenses and enable us to continue saving collies, shelties and mixes thereof in our ever expanding service area.
TSCR has never refused a dog when the owner could not afford a donation, pay for veterinary care or provide proof of vaccinations, but please remember that it is the generosity of our donors that allows us to rescue, provide care and find happy homes for these dogs. If you cannot make a donation at the time of surrender, perhaps you will remember us in the future.
It is important for TSCR to have as much knowledge as possible regarding the needs of your pet. Any information or documentation pertaining to your dog’s health and behavior will allow for a smoother transition into our program.
NOTE: None of this information is released to anyone outside of TSCR. It is used solely for the purpose of placing the dog in the best foster home and determining any medical needs. You may always contact TSCR for an update on your surrendered pet but we do not release adopter information either.
