Marvin as an adorable 18 pound male poodle/dachshund mix who came to us from one of our partner shelters in MD.


PUPDATE 22 August 2017: I won't lie - while Sam is a little odd, he is definitely one of my favourites here right now.


Sadie is an approximately 18 month old spayed female (mix?) with a very simple goal - to love, and to be loved. Sadie is bright, and biddable, and wants nothing more than to do stuff with her peeps.


9 year old spayed female purebred German shepherd . Intake date . This girl is a real sweet heart. Her family lost their home and were no longer able to care for her.

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..
