“No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.”
In ABC's first year, 25 Border Collies were rescued, rehabilitated, and re-homed. In ABC's second year, 115 Border Collies were accepted into the program, most of whom found their forever homes. In our third year (2011), ABC rescued 220 Border Collies and found homes for over 170. Now, in 2014, we are on pace to adopt out our 1000th Border Collie. We have been very successful, but there are still more that could be saved. All we need is a little help. Are you interested in helping? Not sure how? Here are just a few ways you can help. It’s something you will never regret!
1. Foster a dog for us. Fosters are our greatest need!! Please consider fostering a border collie in transition. All Border Collie Rescue pays for everything except for food! If you are interested in fostering, please fill out the foster/adoption application HERE.
2. Volunteer. Volunteers are always needed for transporting, shelter evaluations, distributing posters and pamphlets, training, and working rescue events. If you have time to give, please e-mail All Border Collie Rescue.
3. Share our cause with others. Watch our End-of-Year Video 2010 HERE and 2011 HERE. They are dedicated to everyone that had any part in rescue that year, in any way!!
4. Donate. The average cost to save one dog is $400. You can help reduce our costs by making a tax-deductible donation. All money goes directly to saving another border collie. All donations will be acknowledged with a thank you and receipt. Donations can be made through Pay Pal (link below).
or mailed to:
All Border Collie Rescue

5. Matching Contributions. Ask your employer about matching donations. All Border Collie Rescue will gladly supply the paperwork needed for your business to match any money that you donate.
6. Do a Supply Drive. All Border Collie Rescue always needs items necessary to supply their foster homes with everything they need.
