Boy is yet another young dog with no training...he is well crate trained, and we believe house broken. He walks reasonably on leash, is learning to wait, sit, and other manners.
Pearle is a lovely girl with a wonderful way with people of all ages...sadly, she is very afraid of other dogs.
Mist is a young (1 - 1.5 years) female who came in with a litter of pups. She has a sweet, gentle nature, but is genuinely afraid of new people and takes a bit to earn trust.
Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue - Welcome!
Welcome to Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue (MABCR). We are a 501(c)3 organization run primarily by volunteers that currently serves the Mid-Atlantic region, including Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia and West Virginia as well as the District of Columbia.
Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue is a haven for Border Collies that have been discarded, neglected, abandoned or stray. Many of these dogs are turned into animal shelters through no fault of their own, but because their previous owners found themselves unable to handle the challenges border collies offer or because changes in their lives left them unable to properly care for their dogs.
Knowing and loving this breed allows Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue to rescue these dogs from an uncertain future and place them into caring, responsible homes. MABCR knows each of their dogs intimately and what each requires to be properly placed into a new home. Dogs that arrive neglected or with 'issues' receive special care and training to allow them the chance to rehabilitate. Assessment of each dog can determine if they should be placed as a pet only or an actual working dog home, involved in herding, goose removal, agility or obedience.
We hope you love our new website as much as we do.
Many thanks to Global Media Solutions for doing this for us!
We hope you use this site to learn more about our mission, to find out how wonderful rescuing a dog can be and to find out more about our cool Border Collies up for adoption..
We are always looking for great volunteers and foster homes for our pups. If you are interested, please send us an email at SLR@mabcr.org
