Jennifer and Jess
In Loving Memory of our daughter, Jennifer Pauline Fisher (nee Blott) and our pet border collie, Jess.
Jennifer would be 35 on 10th Sept 2012, but sadly died in a car accident on 8th Dec 05. Jess passed away 16/6/01.
As Jennifer grew up nothing gave her greater pleasure than walking Jess. Now she walks her every day, for eternity.
We Love You Both
Love
 Mum, Dad and all your family.
This page is set up to assist American Border Collie owners and is dedicated to the memory of Jennifer and Jess who's family live in Texas

Border Collie Breed Rescue Specialists
The Border Collie Rescue links below are divided (alphabetically) into States. Many States have their own Border Collie Rescue. Some have none. Some Border Collie Rescue organisations cover many states - others are more localized. If your State is not listed look at the next nearest to see if that one is covered. The list is not definitive and will be updated if more organisations come to our attention. We encourage you to use bona fide registered non profit organisations and avoid using private enterprise individuals, but we cannot vouch that all the links below are to genuine non-profits and would appreciate feedback and comments - positive or negative.
 We have endeavored to place the email link next to the state where the listed rescue organisation has its HQ. Rescues are also listed in all the other  states we are aware they cover and work within. The entries in bold are the organisations that have been kind enough to provide us with a link from their own website.
American Border Collie Rescue groups

There are a large number of BC rescue groups in the USA. Some cover one State - some cover more. Not every State has one but some have more. We have provided links to the websites of the various organisations under the name of the State in which they have their base. Emails are provided where there is no website. If a rescue covers more than one state it is also listed in the other States it covers.

To find the closest rescue to you, first look for the name of the State you live in. If it has a rescue based in that State, use the link to contact them. If we know it is covered by a rescue from another State, it will say so. If your State is not listed then we do not know of a rescue covering it and you should try your nearest neighbouring State. We cannot guarantee that all the rescues we list are 501(c) registered non profits, however we do recommend that you check before dealing with them and only use genuine charitable groups.

Scroll or click. The list is arranged alphabetically by State/Region name  beginning -

A - C - D - F - G - H - I - K - L - M - N - O - P - R - S - T - V - W - AKC
