Saturday's Collie

COL is proud to introduce a new weekly feature available to Collie Rescue Organizations across the country, free of charge, called Saturday's Collie. Every week we will feature a collie from a 501c3 rescue with a photo or two and a bio describing the collie's story and personality. Contact us to reserve a space for your organization, and we will let you know when your rescue collie will appear. We recognize that there are hundreds of deserving collies rescued yearly by dedicated groups who restore collies to health, revive their collie character, and match them with new homes. We'd love to include as many rescues as possible and will continue to feature new collies every Saturday of the month, as long as groups keep sending them.

Meet "River" from Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue

Hi folks! My name is River and I can't figure out why no one has adopted me yet. I am a handsome, two year old sable smooth collie. I am obviously sleek and attractive with a happy, playful personality, so I guess it's because I don't see very well. That makes me sad, because even though I can't see things too clearly, I can get around just great.

I'm healthy, I'm smart, I'm friendly and affectionate. I'm also house trained. When I need to go outside, I ring a bell by the door and my "well trained" foster mom opens the door. I'm young and that means that I have lots of energy and can run and play all day long. If you like to get exercise too, we would be just perfect together. As you can see, I also love to relax on the couch. I like everybody and I get along with everyone ...well except for cats.

The one thing I know for certain is that when you call to adopt me, I will love you forever.
~ River

Many avenues are available to assist collie rescue organizations near you or nationally through the Collie Rescue Foundation. Of course, monetary donations are always needed and appreciated to help pay for spay/neuter, worming, heartworm treatment and preventative, vaccinations, surgeries, and food. There are, however, many ways to assist rescue such as donating supplies, offering to foster, helping to transport, as well as offering services and expertise.
