We are a medium-sized foster-based rescue organization based in Bradenton, FL with fosters throughout the state and the Southeast. We give one-on-one attention to each dog – they are kept in our homes and treated as our own. We do not have a central location or shelter.
Dogs are evaluated when they come into rescue for any temperament or health issues. They are given basic obedience training, socialization and rehabilitation as dictated by their needs.
We specialize in herding breeds like border collies, Australian cattle dogs, Australian shepherds, corgis and others, and also help many non-herding dogs in need. These breeds are beautiful and charismatic, but also highly intelligent and in need of work and attention. Many folks want to adopt a herding dog and don’t know what they’re getting themselves into, landing too many of these wonderful dogs in kill shelters or on the street.
Our mission is to find suitable and loving forever homes for these remarkable dogs who have been discarded through no fault of their own. All of our adoptable dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, on heartworm and flea/tick preventives, and microchipped prior to adoption. We address any health issues before the dogs are available for adoption.
