Cedaridge Collie Rescue operates with a small group of volunteers and and a kennel located on site. We rescue purebred collies, shelties and shihtzu's as well as other breeds when we have room and fosters.
The FIRST STEP is the adoption application. The application allows Cedaridge Collie Rescue to determine what you are looking for in a collie in order to better match your family and home with the "right dog for you". Some collies are fine with hardwood flooring, some are terrified of any slippery surfaces, some collies love to be jogging buddies, hiking pals and swim partners while some are couch potatoes and basic information like what good or bad habits a collie may have that would fit into your home and family. Please note that filling in an application form in NO WAY guarantees acceptance as an adoptive home and CRCR reserves the right to refuse any applicant at any time and for any reason. STEP TWO: The Home Visit. The home visit is a very important part of the adoption process A home visit is when a rescue volunteer comes to your home and visits with all the family members. We are not there to judge your home, your family and/or your lifestyle. The reason for the home visit is to get to know you and your family better as well as determining if it is the best match for the collie in question. This step is also an opportunity for the family to ask the volunteer questions about rescue dogs and get tips on how to help rescue dogs settle into their new environments. STEP THREE: Meeting the Collie. The next step in the adoption process is for you and your family to actually meet the collie you are interested in. This meeting gives you a chance to see if you feel this collie truly is a good match for your family and your home. It also gives the collie an opportunity to meet and get to know you a little. STEP FOUR: The Adoption Contract. The last step in the adoption process is reading and signing the adoption contract. The contract is signed by both the adopters and by the CRCR representative. The purpose of the contract is to outline and set into agreement what is expected of the adoptive family in regards to future care of their new collie.It includes a 14 day return policy to be sure all parties are happy with the adoption. It also states that if at any time, for any reason at all, the new family can no longer care for their adoptive collie, the collie comes back to Cedaridge Collie Rescue. The adoption donation of $180 is also paid at this time.
