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


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

Brie is now available for adoption to an appropriate home!! Brie needs a home interested in training and socialization, in widening her horizons, and in helping her become the best dog she can be. Border collie experience is a must, and while she is not high drive, she will need border collie appropriate activities in order to thrive. Do you have what it takes to become Brie’s partner? If so, see for information on adoption!

Auggie needs your help!

Our poor sensitive soul heard a rumor that we're getting puppies (mixes and purebred) soon. If you can't tell, he has no love for puppies. He's terrified they're going to steal all of his human's attention.

He's begging that you all do him a favor and put in your apps today so these puppies have appropriate homes as soon as possible! Our application process takes between 2-3 weeks normally but gets backed up when we get puppies. So, beat the rush and get them in soon so you don't miss the opportunity to add a fuzzy snuggle bug to your life.

Please see for procedures for adoption and an application.
