We have done a lot of work compiling
information to give you the best possible picture
of what Border Collies are like as a breed,
how to determine whether a Border Collie is

rescue groups to share home visit reports (and will
do so ONLY with the applicant's permission), we feel

Any application submitted to NEBCR is kept private
to the group, and your information will not be shared
It is against our policy to provide you with specific
information on the person that fosters or adopts your
dog. You will be required to sign a relinquishment
agreement in which you give up all rights of ownership
of your dog to the care of NEBCR, Inc. You will not
have input as to who fosters or adopts your dog in
the future, and you must trust that we will make all
decisions in your dog's best interests, based on our
MANY years of experience in rescue and with Border
Collies as a breed. We can provide you with general
updates on your dog's well-being only if you contact
us in the future. IF an adopter wishes to be in contact
with you, we can pass along your information to them,
but it will be their decision.
ADOPTERS: We will
not give out your personal or contact information
to the previous owner of the dog you have adopted
without your permission.
