Are you interested in adopting one of our wonderful Collies? Or do you have a collie of your own that you can no longer care for? Please consider relinquishing your collie to Southland Collie Rescue (SCR) so that we may find them a home with pre-qualified owners.
Contact the Area Coordinator (AC) listed below
for your area or county:
LA-San Gabriel Valley
We need a new Area Coordinator!
1. Please reach out to your Area Coordinator (AC) above if you are interested in starting the adoption process. Usually, you will receive a return call from the AC within 48 hours, to talk with you about your situation and to provide you with an Adoption Questionnaire, either electronically or by mail.
2. Fill out the Adoption Questionnaire and send it back to your AC.
3. Upon receiving your completed questionnaire, your AC will contact you to arrange the home visit. We require this visit of all potential adopters to ensure each home’s safety, security, and suitability for the age, physical condition and personality of whatever collie you may be considering. Whoever visits you (your AC or a delegated volunteer), will provide you with further information regarding our adoption procedures and explain what we look for concerning safety and security, and answer any questions you may have.
4. Once approved as an adopter, your AC will assist you in contacting the AC responsible for the collie you’re interested in. You can arrange to visit the collie at his/her foster home – taking your own dog(s), if any, with you if possible. Or, if none of our current collies quite match your preferences, it is recommended that you continue checking the Southland Collie Rescue website regularly until a potential match comes along.
5. Depending on how things go on the first visit to your collie of interest, you might adopt that collie, and either take her/him home right then and there, or perhaps arrange to come back within the week to pick him/her up. Generally, the signing of the adoption agreement and collection of your donation will be taken care of at the foster’s home. The collie’s AC will ensure that you receive all the needed paperwork for your new collie. If you find this is not the right collie for you, contact your Area Coordinator as soon as possible. Remember, your AC is always there to help you find a suitable Collie.
NOTE: We do NOT adopt our collies out to anyone with an unfenced pool. Unfortunately, in both our own and other rescue groups’ experience, dogs have drowned in unfenced pools. We simply cannot put one of our rescue collies at such risk.
