Border Collie Trust – here you will find some lovely girls and boys who are ready and willing to give you lots of love and loyalty. The centre which is based in Staffordshire rehomes around 400 border collies and collie crosses a year. You will find that many of the dogs they have there are there through no fault of their own for example this is the info sent out about their most recent guest -
“Mature Male – Vinnie is a 12-year-old black and white long coated border collie who has come to us from his own home. His owner is seriously ill and due to the treatment she will be under on her return home and the effect on her immune system she’s unable to keep Vinnie.”
Hope Rescue – based in Wales this rescue organisation saves dogs who would otherwise be put to sleep as they are in council pounds where they can only stay for a very limited time span. Their website states,
“Most of our work involves moving dogs from put to sleep or emergency situations. We secure rescue spaces for these dogs with reputable rescues such as the Dogs Trust, Blue Cross and RSPCA, together with a number of excellent smaller rescues and breed rescues. We will also transport them to the rescue and cover many thousands of miles every month.
The majority of the dogs we deal with are strays from Local Authority pounds which would otherwise be euthanised once they have completed their statutory 7 days”
The pups in the picture above are in one of their foster homes – info on fostering and how to help fund raise is on their website.
