The Custom Collie Store

Welcome to Southwest Collie Rescue’s new Custom Collie Store, featuring quality embroidered products made just for you by a longtime adopter and volunteer who does this work professionally.

Debbie B, in Phoenix, has generously offered to donate more than 50% of the retail cost of each item to SWCR to help our collies (and some shelties) throughout the year.

Here’s how it works:

First you choose the product, color, and size. Then you customize the product, from a list of possibilities, with the embroidered logo and slogan you like best.

Maybe you’d like to show off SWCR's logo and name. You’re more than welcome to do this!

Or maybe you’d like to feature a beautiful sable and white collie with the slogan, “May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.”

The choices are yours. You can start shopping now or bookmark our product page and shop when you like.

When you buy, the order form takes you to PayPal, which accepts major credit cards.

Click on the COLLIE to go to the Custom Collie Store.

Products will rotate out of the mix every so often to make room for new ones. So check the store frequently.

HONEY NEEDS YOUR HELP AND WE ARE MOST OF THE WAY THERE!

honey

Honey is a 10 year old SWCR collie mix that has been diagnosed with a cancerous soft tissue sarcoma. Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) is basically a treatment dose of very specialized and specific radiation without surgery. This radiation should shrink the tumor and return her to an active life with minimal side effects. There are very few vet locations in the US that can successfully treat Honey, but she is close to one that can help her.

WE NOW HAVE RAISED MORE THAN $9600 FOR HONEY. AND BECAUSE OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO GAVE SO GENEROUSLY, WE NOW HAVE THE NECESSARY FUNDS FOR HER TREATMENT. HONEY AND SWCR THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!

AND WE WILL BE KEEPING YOU POSTED ABOUT HONEY'S TREATMENT.

Today (4/2) Honey had her third and final cancer treatment.

Her vet tech said she “did really great, she was wagging her tail when she left.”

I also talked to Dr. Eric Boshoven, Honey’s oncologist.
How will we know whether the treatment is working? I asked him. What should we expect to see?

Already her tumor, a soft tissue sarcoma that was "broken open” when she first arrived, is “drier,” he noted. Now the tumor should start to shrink, which can take as long as three or four months. She’ll need repeat X-rays every three months.

“I’m very hopeful,” Dr. Boshoven declared.

Meet Honey Now!

 

 

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.
