Volunteers needed to provide a temporary home for a collie awaiting
I Foster: The following was written
by Arizona collie and sheltie rescue volunteer Cindy Reel.
and I have been fostering for rescue for over two years now, hard
to believe! It has become such a natural part of our lives and
as if we have been doing this forever, so much so that I can't
remember what we did with all our time before! It has become part
of our existence and has given a special purpose to our life on
this earth. Just
yesterday I was called upon to check on a little girl at the pound.
She was a frightened little thing, the first attendant that opened
her kennel for me, said she wasn't sure if we could help her,
"she is going to take a lot of work," she stated.
I replied that we still wanted to help her, so she went and got their handler
to get her out and ready for me to take her home.
The handler put her in the back seat of my Blazer on a soft blanket I had
prepared and off we went, on the way home she nuzzled the back
of my arm, as if to say "thanks!" Last night she slept in our
bed and gave us kisses, we comforted her with gentle pets when
she whimpered. This morning she is happily running and playing
with my dogs and following me around the house.
This is a dog that was going to be put down yesterday, if we had not helped. This
is only one of many dogs that have needed our help in getting
a second chance.that is why we continue to foster and open our
hearts and home to a rescue in need. This is the most rewarding
work I have ever experienced, need I say more?
Adopt a collie for your very own! Provide a permanent, loving home for
a collie in need. We have a modest adoption fee of $175.00 that helps
to cover our rescuing costs such as veterinarian fees, grooming fees,
shelter bail out fees, transportation of collies, food and supplies.

TRANSPORTING A COLLLIE
As a three-state rescue group, SWCR covers a lot of ground frequently. SWCR needs collie-friendly drivers to move a rescue collie from where the collie currently resides to where the collie needs to be. Most transports take place on a weekend because most of our volunteers are tied to real jobs. We can use any college student, working person or retired person that likes to drive to fill this critical need. We particularly need transport volunteers in Texas, Arizona and New Mexico. Interested, then contact one of us.
