URGENT CALL FOR FOSTERS

Last Friday, Houston Collie Rescue took in 93 collies from a filthy, flea-ridden home in Tomball, TX.

Sound familiar? There’s a reason. In 2007 the group rescued 51 collies from the same home. Southwest Collie Rescue helped by taking 10 of them.

But the same hoarder was allowed to breed collies again. 

Now the number of collies stands at a staggering 110 and counting: A tri girl gave birth to 13 puppies over the weekend, four shy collies were found hiding in an igloo, and at least one other collie is pregnant.

Imagine what it must be like to manage this many collies, even with the help of heroic volunteers.  Every day they must be fed, given fresh water, cleaned up after, comforted, walked, given the medications they need … an overwhelming task.

These collies will need foster homes as soon as they can be released to rescue groups, which could happen very soon. A court hearing has been scheduled for later this week to determine permanent custody of the dogs. 

We are optimistic that the court will do what's best for the collies, most of whom are painfully thin and neglected, but also remarkably sweet and eager to please.

Because the need is so great, SWCR hopes to be able to take 20 of the Tomball collies, and more if we can.

We are asking our volunteers, adopters, and friends to let us know right away whether they could foster one of these collies. Then, as soon as HCR gets the legal go-ahead to release the collies to rescue groups, we'll be ready to do our part. 

If you have the time to devote to a needy collie, a fenced yard and a lot of love to give, please think about fostering. 

As always, SWCR covers any medical bills and our fosters have first dibs on adopting their collies.

If you’re interested, e-mail Lee More at leemore@mac.com, or call her at 505 989-3530.

Just Arrived!!!

These collies or shelties have just arrived in SWCR. Each will be vetted and fostered until SWCR knows enough about them to write a bio. That process can take a few weeks. Then they will move to the Collies Needing Homes page. So click on this link to see if the collie you last saw on this page is now ready for adoption.
