Is there anything special you would like to pass on that is not covered above??
Border Collie Rescuers are all volunteers, no one is paid for their work.  Most all have regular jobs, families, and active dogs of their own, and do the best they can in what can now only be described as a crisis situation.  The Border Collie population has exploded in the past few years and rescuers are struggling to cope with the influx of rescues from all over the country.  If a rescuer does not contact you shortly, please be patient, remember we are buried in an avalanche of dogs and will get to you as soon as possible.  You, the potential adopter, are our hope...  if you have not received word within one week, please contact:  bcrescue@aol.com. or info@bcrescue.net
