A COMPLETED APPLICATION IS OUR FIRST STEP TOWARD ANY PLACEMENT.  YOU WILL FIND THE APP ON OUR WEBSITE AT www.colliesheltierescue.org.  WITHOUT ALL OF THAT INFORMATION, WE HAVE NO PLACE TO START A CONVERSATION.

If you close your eyes and wish for a big, magnificent, glorious Collie to be in your arms and in your heart.....this is Rowan.

Rowan is a six-year-old neutered male rough coated Collie.  He has known nothing but love and kindness since he was a puppy.  His owner has made the very difficult decision to rehome Rowan because of living circumstances.  She is putting the needs of her dogs ahead of her own.  As you will see in Rowan's photos, he is the quintessential Collie.  Handsome, trusting, loving, playful and HUGE.  At this point in time, he weighs 113# but he should trim down to 100# with some more activity.  And he needs to be super active.

We will not consider any placement where Rowan will not get the absolute best of everything.  He needs a young family, one where he takes the kids to school and runs with mom and helps with the laundry and errands and picks the kids up from school and plays until dinner time and then helps with homework.  You get the picture?!

As stated previously, a completed application is our first step toward any placement.  Please read the section on our basic requirements.  And wrap your brain around a giant Collie (or two) being your next best friends.

Please begin the process for adoption by reading our Adoption Policies and, if we sound like the right group for you, fill out our online Adoption Application. From there, our receipt of your completed application will be confirmed by email. You then will receive a follow-up phone call if we feel you are a good potential applicant for the dog. Lots of good conversation with the foster family, a reference from your veterinarian, and a home visit round out the screening process. We take dog adoption very seriously.  Please put a lot of thought into why you want to adopt a dog, and help us make a good match for your family. We appreciate your taking the time to visit with us. We will look forward to hearing from you as well.
