We are a medium-sized foster-based rescue organization based in Bradenton, FL with fosters throughout the state and the Southeast. We have been saving lives since 2011, giving one-on-one attention to each dog – they are kept in our homes and treated as our own. We do not have a central location or shelter. We specialize in herding breeds like Border Collies, Australian Cattle Dogs, Corgis and others, and also help many non-herding dogs in need. These breeds are beautiful and charismatic, but also highly intelligent and in need of work and attention. Many folks want to adopt a herding dog and don’t know what they’re getting themselves into, landing too many of these wonderful dogs in kill shelters or on the street. Dogs are evaluated when they come into rescue for any temperament or health issues. They are given basic obedience training, socialization and rehabilitation as dictated by their needs.
Your application will be reviewed as soon as possible. Normally the process takes seven to ten days. Please remember that we have busy schedules; we work full-time outside our rescue volunteer work and care for our own dogs and families in addition to our fosters. Our ultimate goal is to match you with the best dog for your lifestyle. If you are interested in a specific dog, that dog’s needs will be taken into consideration when reviewing your application and deciding whether to place him or her in your home. Keep in mind that we do not operate on a first-come, first-served basis. In everything we do, we strive to put the dog’s needs and happiness first. If you are approved to adopt a dog, an adoption contract must be completed before the dog can leave its foster home.
