Intake date 30 December 2017 12 month old spayed female - $200 sponsorship provided by Robin - Thank you!! Quinn is a young dog learning about partnership and how to be a great dog.


Introducing Sam. Sam came to us from a rural shelter. He and a buddy (Dean) had been picked up by animal control, and they are in need of some special care.


Yolo is an adult male (mix?) with a sweet disposition and laid back temperament. While Yolo does best with 'in charge' humans - he does enjoy simple walks and just hanging out.

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 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..

We are always looking for great volunteers and foster homes for our pups. If you are interested, please send us an email at

Miley went with me to walk a client's dog this afternoon.
I can not believe that Miley is still available for adoption. She is pretty close to perfect in my book. This girl loves to play ball and go for long walks with her person. She'd make a great all around dog, she could do recreational agility, rally, obedience, or just be your best friend.
What I really love about her is how she takes everything in stride. Loose dogs running at her? No worries. Kids on bikes? Doesn't bat an eye. Loud trucks? No big deal.
Adoption applications can be filled out at!

Apparently it is National Puppy Day. Here is a gratuitous snap of Mama Lisa and her pups who stayed with us in 2013 (and quickly went into their new homes ones they were weaned). Care to share a pic of your puppy here? Please do!
