Collies Available for Adoption

Please read important information for prospective adopters at the bottom of this page!

Not all NorCal collies are listed on this page. We often work from a waiting list. If you are interested in adopting a collie, please send in an application[Click Here].  It often takes time to match each collie with just the right forever home.  Thank you for your patience.
This beautiful, bonded pair will be a blessing to whoever brings them into their home.

Emily is 8 years old, spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.  Emily LOVES people.  She traveled a lot with her family as a young pup and was exposed to a lot of people in various situations.  As with most collies, she was usually the center of attention, wherever she went and ate it up.  While she was never certified in therapy, she spent many weekends serving in that role at local nursing homes where her loving and mellow personality would bring comfort and joy to the residents.

Emily experiences seizures when given flea and heartworm medications.  She must be treated holistically, if needed, for prevention of fleas due to her severe drug sensitivity.  Emily is starting to show signs of arthritis in her right front leg. A low dose of anti- inflammatory works wonders for her.   She recently had blood work done and it came back wonderful.

Katie is 5 years old, spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.  Katie is high energy and would likely do well in agility if her new family wanted to pursue that activity with her. She is loyal, sensitive and affectionate, but doesn't seek people out like Emily.

Katie has flea allergies.  Fortunately, she does not have Emilyís drug sensitivity and is doing well on an oral flea preventative with no side effects.  Katie also has severe food allergies and must be kept on a strict diet to prevent GI issues.  They are currently being fed Natureís Recipe Venison and Rice but Blue Buffalo is another brand they do well with, the lamb and rice.

Both girls are well mannered and know basic obedience commands.  They donít beg as they were never given people food.  Nor are they barkers indoors although, when excited, Katie loves to express herself in a way only collies can.  She will, however, immediately quiet down if asked.  They have been raised in an apartment and are indoor dogs. They are housebroken - to the point where Emily will vomit before going in the house..  They get along well with other dogs and cats.  They love people and are good with kids. 

While we would consider adopting them out separately to the right homes. We would prefer to adopt them out together.

If you live in Northern California, have a love of collies, are willing to adopt them as a pair, understand collie allergies and drug sensitivity issues or are willing to learn -- Please complete our online adoption application.  If you have additional questions, and would like to discuss Emily and Katie further prior to completing an application, please email laurie@calcollierescue.org

These girls are currently being fostered in Davis, CA.  You must be willing to drive to Davis to meet them for adoption.
