Rufus is a young (9 months-1.5 years) neutered male mix. He will mature at less than 20 lbs, but is not a pocket dog.


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.


PUPDATE 12 December 2014: Beau is now in foster - He is quickly learning his house manners- which weren't terrible to begin with.


UPDATE: 8 May - Mist is now in foster, and is doing really, really well. She still has shiny object syndrome, but is learning more and more every day, and really adores her foster guy..

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.
