Adoption Process

Step 1: Application to Adopt

Please download the Application to Adopt form. and email the completed application to:

Step 2: Phone Interview

Once we receive your Application to Adopt, we will contact you to and schedule a phone interview (please give us 3-5 days to review). This will allow us to get a better idea of what exactly you are looking for and help us best place the right Border Collie for you.

Step 3: Home Visit

After the application and phone interview, we will schedule a home visit. This will allow us to verify the information provided and make sure each Border Collie we adopt out is going to suitable home.

Forms and Agreements

We ares working on finishing this form.  Please start with the Application to Adopt and we will email any additional forms and contracts we need to finalize an adoption.

We ask our adopters to fill in and sign a Media Waiver Agreement which allows Border Collie Save & Rescue to use all photos, videos, name, stories, likeness, and media of the an adopted dog on our web site and in our promotional materials.

We ares working on finishing this form.   In the meantime, if required, we will email this agreement to you.

Coming Soon!
It is the standard policy of Border Collie Save & Rescue to spay or neuter all dogs that come through the rescue.  Occasionally we may run into a situation where we adopt out a dog who has yet to be spayed or neutered (typically only very young puppies and some  sporting/working dogs).  In these cases, BCSAVE will require a Spay & Neuter Contract to be signed by the adopter agreeing to have the dog spayed or neutered by a specified date.

We ares working on finishing this form.   In the meantime, if required, we will email this agreement to you.


Step 4: Find your Dog

Although many people are set on the dog they want before they start the adoption process, we encourage you to not wait. This allows us to help you find a dog that will best fit your unique lifestyle, and it will speed up the entire process of getting a dog to you once the right one has been found.

Step 5 Bring You Dog Home

Once we have everything approved and the right dog selected, we will work with you to arrange getting the dog to you. Please ask of if you need any assistance or advice in bringing a new dog into your household and we will try and help in any way that we can.

Step 6: Keep In Touch!

We hope that our relationship with the adopter does not end at the adoption. We love updates, stories, braggings, tales, yarns, sagas, shenanigans, photos, and videos of all of our former fosters in their new furever homes with their new people.
