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.


PUPDATE: 19 March - Ben is a lovely young dog who would dearly love to have his very own person who can teach him all he needs to know to be a great partner.


PUPDATE 20 February 2016: Jack continues to do well.


Sadie is currently in an assessment period and is not yet available for adoption. She is an early June puppy with little training or exposure to the world.

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 SLR@mabcr.org

Vetting and transport for intake is expensive, the average being $200. I'm sure you can imagine that puts a drain on our finances. If you would like to help with this, or any of our residents, please see our donate now button above, or click through to our website. Thank you! http://www.mabcr.org/donations.html

This litter or pups were whelped 25 June and will not be available for adoption until early September. If you are interested in being considered for a pup, please submit your complete application after 15 August. Please be sure to include all requested information when you submit your application, so that we are able to fully process it in a timely manner. Incomplete applications will not be considered. You can find our application and information on adoption here: http://www.mabcr.org/adoption_application.html

These pups are purebred puppies - applications with experience raising border collie puppies will be given priority. Pups will only be placed into homes with other solid temperament dogs, and will be placed into homes prepared to take classes and challenge their young friend.

Thank you again for your interest. We will post updates to our facebook page as often as we can, please follow their progress here.

Care for puppies is expensive. Please consider helping with a donation. If you would like to help with this girl, or any of our residents, please see our donate now button above, or click through to our website. Thank you! http://www.mabcr.org/donations.html
