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..

The Rainbow Bridge - it's something no one wants to talk about. It represents loss, but also offers a time to reflect on the good times. What is your favorite memory of your trusted, four-legged companion? 🌈

An update on our boy Zeke!
Zeke took a trip to the big city and was amazing! This guy impresses me with every new thing he does, he simply takes everything in stride.
The downside of his trip is that he will be too much dog for the person he was being prepped to become a service dog for. While he can do the job, he's simply too much puppy - and will be such for some time, so the decision was made to look for a better suited placement for Zeke.
To that end, Zeke will be made available to a working him that will be able to carry on with his training, and can offer him service work (or similar) as he will excel at this work with the proper training and handling.
Please see our website for information on adoption.
