Volunteering in Other Ways

Wish List (things we need)



How to Help New England Border Collie Rescue

NEBCR, Inc. is a nonprofit, all volunteer organization. We depend on our volunteers and generous donors to help as many dogs as possible. Please see the list at right and read more below for ways you can help

NEBCR's Wish List

Our most pressing immediate need is for monetary donations to cover the cost of the extensive vet care required for these dogs.

You can donate online via PayPal by clicking the button below or at left, or send your checks payable to "NEBCR" to:

c/o Kathy Chittenden
760 East Road
Stephentown, NY 12168


You can help us in a number of ways: by volunteering, by donating to our Rescue Fund, and by donating an item or items on our Wish List. We specify some items by brand only because these are found to work best for us. For example, Midwest folding crates are easily passed around from person to person where there is need, can be transported folded, and work well in both a house or a vehicle, where they can easily folded out of the way when not in use.

Most of the items we wish for are small, but you will also see some really big items here. You may think "Well, that's unrealistic!" Perhaps it is, but what good is a wish list if you cannot include everything you wish for and need? (And if you have an "in" at the North Pole, please pass our list on to you-know-who.)

And thank you! We appreciate your help.


You can make a donation by check or PayPal

Please send your checks
(payable to NEBCR) to:

c/o Kathy Chittenden, treasurer
760 East Road
Stephentown, NY 12168

If you have any questions regarding making a donation, please contact Kathy at

(Please do NOT send adoption applications to this address)

Although we charge an adoption fee, this is never enough to cover our expenses. Ordinary vet costs (vaccinations, spay or neutering, heartworm test and preventative) often exceed that amount, and we never recoup our day-to-day expenses for housing and feeding rescue dogs. When a dog comes into rescue that needs special care or surgery, these costs can sometimes become hundreds or thousands of dollars. Occasionally, we run out of room in foster care and need to board a dog for a few days or longer. This can add up as well. We need your help to be able to continue to provide the care needed for ALL our rescue dogs. Giving a donation to our organization will go towards helping to pay for our ordinary expenses, but will also help us with our extraordinary expenses.

NEBCR, Inc. is an ALL VOLUNTEER, 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and all donations made to NEBCR are tax-deductible.


If you prefer to give a donation for a specific dog, we welcome your generosity as well. All our dogs need help in one form or another, even if it is just food and care, but sometimes people like to put a face on the dog they are helping. You may sponsor a dog that needs boarding, help to pay for a dog's special needs, or just help us feed and care for a particular dog. Please read the biographies of our dogs and if you can find it in your heart to help one of them, please let us know which dog you wish to support. Your donation will then be earmarked specifically for that dog.
