Sadie



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.


Tip



Tip is a bit of a conundrum – his front end is all border collie, his back end is a mystery! Tip is an older fella, and came to us quite out of shape and overweight.


Dean



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


Matty



29 October: What more can I say about Matty. He is super sweet, and devoted, and is loving, funny, and affectionate. He does occasionally display his feral beginnings, but is easily managed.


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

18 month old, female GSD in need of sponsorship for $100

Although she isn't black and white, this girl has a lot of spunk and will make a great companion for the right partner.
She's currently in board and train with Belle Rose Kennels to get more exposure and to be socialized.

PUPDATE: Miley is a very sweet girl with a LOT of personality. She is extremely trainable and has already improved leaps and bounds with her barking and leash manners. This girl has a natural loose leash walk and a willingness to please her person. Miley is extremely loyal to her person, she doesn't wander too far away and will check in for pets often. This girl would do best with a confident handler who will continue to help her confidence grow, a person with another dog in the householdo, and someone who has an understanding of GSD behavior. As far as a rescue GSD goes, she's pretty perfect and we hope she can be placed into an appropriate home soon!

Originally posted on 9 February, we are still short on funding for the heater....can you please help? The dogs would appreciate it :)

As sometimes (ok, more than sometimes) happens here, we had appliance drama today when the heater in the kennel quit (to be fair, I think it is about 15 years old). A few weeks ago the hot water heater went - to the tune of about $500. I suspect the bill for the heater will be about the same, so if you can spare a few extra bucks, please consider helping us get the heat back on for the dogs. In the meantime, they are all snuggled up in their blankets. Information on how you can help is in the comments below.
Please share with like minded friends, we'd really appreciate it.
