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 over to animal shelters through no fault of their own - 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 are always looking for great volunteers and foster homes for our pups. If you are interested, please send us an email at


We hope you love our website as much as we do.


Many thanks to Global Media Solutions for building this beautiful site 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 (and other critters) available for adoption..

From Patricia McConnell: Have you seen the article in Bark Magazine about the diet of dogs in the Bronze Age? Spoiler alert: a large percentage of their diet was from carbohydrates.
Of course, that doesn’t mean it was the ideal diet for them, but it sure makes it clear that domestic dogs have been living off of a variety of foods for thousands of years.

Looking for an eco-friendly way to use those leftover table scraps? Mixing vegetables in with your dogs food to supplement their diet can be a great addition. . . if you know what you're doing.
