Help us provide new beginnings and loving homes to neglected, homeless and disabled Collies throughout the Midwest.
Approved foster families provide a loving, safe home for Collies and begin working to assess their traits and personality, provide needed medical care and begin preparing them to find their forever homes.
Surrendered Collies are spayed/neutered and brought up-to-date on vaccinations before being placed in a forever home, in addition to having any other medical issues addressed that may be discovered during the Collie’s veterinary assessment or during their evaluation period with the foster family.
The MWCR adoption team screens potential adopters to ensure they will provide the loving, safe home each Collie deserves, and then works to match adopters with the best available Collie for their home and lifestyle.
When a Collie goes missing the MWCR team goes into action and implements a variety of resources and tools to increase the likelihood of getting the lost Collie home safe and sound.
MWCR works to find permanent foster homes for the many special needs and/or senior Collies that are surrendered.
Even after a Collie has been adopted, the MWCR team continues to provide follow up, education and support to adopters and their Collies.
Cloud, Blue & Crystal
Cloud, Blue and Crystal are "double dilute" collies, the result of a mating between 2 merle parents, either accidentally or by an irresponsible breeder. Collies with this characteristic often have severe medical issues, and responsible breeders make sure that this kind of mating does not happen. In this case, Cloud is deaf, Blue is blind and sweet Crystal is both blind & deaf. Often deaf or blind pups from these litters are destroyed but these litter mates were saved from euthanasia by a Guardian Angel and surrendered to MWCR.
