southland collie rescue, inc. (SCR)…

is a non-profit, all-volunteer group with corporate headquarters and central operations at our “O'Neil's Collie Haven” property in Riverside, California.



Our mission is to rescue every Southern California collie in need. We take in, care for, and find loving homes for Purebred Collies (and collie mixes when we can). The rescued collies may be in shelters, abandoned, or given up by owners who can’t or won’t care for them anymore. We ensure that every rescued collie is spayed or neutered, current on shots, and checked for health and temperament. We also provide whatever medical treatment is necessary – one of our major expenses.



We maintain our collies at Collie Haven or in a volunteer foster home, where they’re fed, groomed and loved as if they were the fosterer's own dogs. We then find the right “forever home”, interviewing and visiting all potential adopters to ensure that the collie and his-or-her new family will be happy.
