About Collie Rescue Network

Our mission is to find homes for all Collies who find themselves, for whatever reason, homeless and in need of assistance.  We take Collies into our rescue program from shelters all over Canada as well as from owners who can no longer care for their beloved dogs.

Collie Rescue Network has NO kennel facilities and instead relies on the foster care system. Collies in our care stay with a foster family, living indoors as part of the family, until their furever adoptive families are found.

All “staff” at CRN are volunteers. All money raised by CRN goes directly into the rescue fund which in turn helps to pay the bills incurred by the Collies while in the care of the rescue.  Currently, the adoption fee for any dog adopted through Collie Rescue Network is $500, while our average cost per dog while in our care is over $700. The adoption fee helps to off-set some of the costs incurred but we also reply heavily on funds donated by the general public, as well as funds raised at various fundraisers held throughout the year.

All dogs adopted through Collie Rescue Network will have, at minimum, the following vetting done prior to being adopted by your family and all vet records will be provided to you at the time of adoption:

Our Mission Statement:

Collie Rescue Network is a national not-for-profit organization established to provide for the rescue and care of Rough and Smooth Collies in Canada that have been abandoned, surrendered, lost, neglected or abused. Our goal is to place each and every Collie that enters our rescue program into a carefully screened, approved home where they will be loved and cherished as a member of the family for the rescue of their lives.

We cannot do this without YOU!
