Buckeye Border Collie Rescue (BBCR) is a non-profit organization that is run by volunteers. We are committed to the welfare of Border Collies in need in the Ohio area. The Border Collies are fostered in homes throughout the state of Ohio. The main co-ordination of the rescue group is conducted in Tiffin in northwest Ohio.
BBCR rescues Border Collies from shelters and accepts owner relinquishments if space permits. When possible with owner relinquishments, BBCR volunteers counsel the owners to keep the Border Collie in their home. Border Collie mixes are accepted as space allows. At times, a Border Collie mix is more appropriate for a responsible pet home where the intensity of a Border Collie is not appropriate.
BBCR updates vaccinations, tests and treats for heartworm and spays or neuters all Border Collies prior to placement. Border Collies are fostered in our homes and evaluated for social habits and activity levels. Applications are required to adopt a Border Collie from BBCR. Once the applicant is approved, the appropriate Border Collie is matched and a visit to the foster home is arranged. Adopted Border Collies are placed with a contract for a designated adoption donation.
BBCR is not a facility open to the public. The BCs are fostered in our homes. Appointments must be made in advance and only AFTER the application and approval process. Please go to the Available Dogs page and click Adopting a BC to see the process.
BBCR operates from donations, fundraisers and adoptions to help defray the costs of rescue. The time and some of the expenses for foster care, phone calls and transports is supported through the dedication of the volunteers. Most of the BBCR volunteers work full-time jobs and maintain a balanced household. Please keep this in mind when you begin the application process. The process may take a week or so to get underway. Please be patient. email@example.com
