We rescue every purebred collie in our area needing help, no matter how old or how sick. All donations to Southwest Collie Rescue are tax-deductible under Sect. 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

SHASTA

Shasta, a sweet, gentle, 5 to 6 year old rough sable and white collie,  was used as breeder and then discarded once she was no longer useful. Left to starve or die in the desert near El Paso, she was found covered with ticks, filthy, terribly thin and carrying a four pound cancerous mammary tumor that was weeping and ready to rupture. 

The tumor was successfully removed a few weeks ago, and Shasta was spayed and had a dental extraction and a good teeth cleaning. She is recovering nicely and is a happy girl at her foster home in Alamogordo.

Alas, Shasta is developing another mammary tumor in  her groin area and a subsequent tumor further up the glandular chain. We may need to remove the entire mammary chain of glands so the threat of recurring cancer is minimized. She's not ready for that kind of surgery quite yet, but we hope to schedule something soon.

We would like  Shasta to have the chance to be adopted and live a healthy life. We are thankful to our many donors who make it possible for SWCR to rescue “every purebred collie in our area needing help, no matter how old or how sick.”

Can you help this wonderful collie?

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.
 

 

REMY

Sex: Female
Color: Tri
Variety: Smooth
Age: 2-3
Rescued: Hobbs NM
Fostered: Tijeras NM
Coordinator: Arlene Starkey at arlenestarkey@q.com
Preliminary Bio: Although presently fostered in Hobbs, this sweet girl will move to Tijeras, NM in a few days. She is spayed, current on her shots and micro-chipped. She ignores cats, loves humans and hasn’t made up her mind about other dogs in the household, for she wants to be the Alpha. More on this sweet collie when we have had her in foster a little longer. Yes, she has a weird shave job to the top of her coat. It will grow back given a little time.
