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 SLR@mabcr.org

 

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..


Social Media Activity


Hey friends! We have TWO transports this weekend, one is covered - we still need the second transport covered, here are the deets:
40lb aussie needs a ride from Harrisburg (pickup @8am) to Chestertown MD OR meet in Elkton MD at @10am and transport to Chestertown MD 21620.
We do prefer that he rides in a crate, and without other dogs in the vehicle since he's coming out of a shelter.
Please PM me asap if you can assist.

We LOVE great updates on our alum. We received a good update recently, and we HAD to share this list:
🐾
She got the remaining shots she required right away so we have started taking her places. Some activities she does include:
- Daily foundation training and fitness skills in my agility room in the basement.
- Going to my agility classes so she can observe and socialize with different people.
- Going to the vet just to be weighed and be around people.
- Going to agility trials as an observer.
- Hiking with me and my other dogs (they are off leash, she is still on leash). She seems very keen to start swimming with the others. We will start that at home soon.
- Playing ball outside with my other dogs.
🐾
Structured activity is SO important for a working dog -- even if they aren't 'working'!!
What types of structured activities do you offer to your dogs?
