This form will allow you to post your family description and desired features in a rescue dog to Border Collie Rescue in northern Florida. Due to privacy concerns, we will no longer be publicly publishing listings for homes looking for a Border Collie on the web site. We will retain copies of all completed forms at our main rescue facility to facilitate the adoption process. Anyone (rescuer or individual looking to place their dog) looking for particular listings or listings by region, simply and we will provide contact information from applicable applications.

Please fill out this form as completely as possible. The more information that you can provide us, the better we can match your needs with the right dog. Please check all boxes that apply where appropriate. Also, don't forget to check the listings of dogs available to see if any of the current dogs would be an appropriate match. Filling out this form does not constitute the filing of an official adoption application for Border Collie Rescue. A signed version must be mailed in in most circumstances. In fact, you may or may not get a response to your application, depending on circumstances and particular rescuers' desires. It is up to you to pursue the adoption process. Do not expect rescuers to come knocking down your door in order to adopt a dog to you.

Please Note - These pages are not to be used to seek out a Border Collie for purchase. This is for the placement of rescued Border Collies * only *.
