Fleet came to us through a rural shelter where he had been picked up as a stray and not reclaimed.


Intake date 10 February 2018 . 3 year old spayed female . Callie is a fairly driven young dog in need of a partner and a job.


Jazz came to us as a feral pup who needed socialization. It has taken a few months, but Jazz is coming around great! This girl loves other dogs and is tolerant of just about any behavior.


PUPDATE 20 February 2016: Jack continues to do well.

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..

Social Media Activity

It's that time again for $5 Friday! 🐾

We get a fair amount of inquiries on how to support the Rescue in a way that is financially accessible. To respond to that call-to-action, we created an Amazon wish list with $5 items we need around the farm. Every purchase saves us time coupon clipping, a trip to the store, and improves the quality of life for our furry friends.

I'm looking for someone who would like to work with MABCR on correspondence and outreach. Volunteer would be a few hours a week, and can be done from your home on a laptop or pc. Skills required are patience (mostly with me ;-) ), basic letter writing, and self motivation. If you would be interested, please PM me - Sarah
