|OzCollieRescue .. (Collie Rough & Smooth)
|OzCollieRescue is a group of Collie Lovers from around Australia who are dedicated to helping purebred Collies (Rough & Smooth) that are in a Rescue situation. Our group includes Registered Breeders, Exhibitors, Dog Sports enthusiasts & Pet Owners. Rescue Collies that are awaiting Adoption are usually fostered in a members private home.
Pictured opposite are just some of the Collies we have managed to help & they are now in loving forever homes.
Rescue Collies are generally Collies that have been saved from Pounds once they became at risk of being put to sleep due to being homeless.
We will endeavour to list on our Collies Available page all known Rescue Collies in all States of Australia ... whether they are in our care or in a Shelter / Pound or with another Rescue group.
If you are interested in Adopting a Rescue Collie and a suitable dog is not listed here then please contact either OzCollieRescue or the State Contact as listed in the Contact Us page. We are always happy to discuss your interest & place you on our waiting list.
If you are aware of a Collie Rough or Smooth in a genuine Rescue situation then please contact us. Please note, we cannot take on/in private rehomes though (unless the situation is desperate or the Collie is at risk) and generally we are only able to consider purebred Collies.
Rescue Collies are only rehomed to approved persons.
And only desexed Collies will be available for adoption.
We rely totally on Adoption Fees, Donations & Fundraising to help cover our costs. Without this we will not be able to help the next Collie in Need.
Adoption Enquiries are Welcome ... please email us and tell us a bit about yourself. Someone will contact you soon to discuss your interest further.
Foster Carers are needed in all States. If you can help in this important role please email us & someone will contact you soon.

|I WOULD HAVE DIED THAT DAY IF NOT FOR YOU !
I would have given up on life, if not for your kind eyes.
I would have used my teeth in fear, if not for your gentle hand.
I would have left this life, believing that all humans don't care,
believing there is no such thing as fur that isn't matted, skin that isn't flea bitten
Good food and enough of it
Beds to sleep on .... Someone to love me ....
To show me I deserve love, just because I exist.
Your kind eyes ... Your loving smile ... Your gentle hands
Your big heart saved me !!!!!
You saved me from the terror of dying on the street
You have soothed away the memories of my old life
You have taught me what it means to be loved
I have seen you do the same for other dogs & cats just like me
I have heard you ask yourself in times of despair .. Why do you do it???
When there is no more money ... No more room ... No more homes
I see you open your heart a little bigger, stretch the money a little tighter
Make just a little more room, to save one more like me.
I tell you this with all the gratitude and love that shines in my eyes
It is the best way I know how
Reminding you why you go on trying
...I AM THE REASON...
...The dogs & cats before me are the reason...
...As are the ones who come after...
Our lives would've been wasted ... Our love never given
WE WOULD'VE DIED THAT DAY IF NOT FOR YOU!
