Adoption Fee Payment

Congratulations!  You’re almost ready to have your new furry family member join the family!  One of the last steps in the adoption process is the adoption fee payment.  Please ensure you speak to either Pam ( or Jennifer ( before you send your adoption payment to confirm the amount (especially if your new Collie is flying to you as there are additional costs involved).  

The general adoption fee that applies in most cases is our standard $400.00.  This amount helps to off-set the cost of all of the vetting done while each Collie is in the care of the rescue.  Every Collie will have the vaccinations and rabies brought up-to-date, will have seen a vet for a wellness exam, be one seasonal appropriate preventatives like heartworm or lyme (if required in that area and if in the appropriate season), be spayed/neutered, have been dewormed and microchipped.  They will also either have had their MDR1 status checked while in rescue or will have the test accompany them to your home (it’s a quick, easy cheek swab and all instructions are included).  Any outstanding medical conditions will have been addressed before adoption and will be explained to you and all vetting paperwork will be available to your vet as well.

Payment Options:

  1. You can pay the adoption fee by E-transfer to Please ensure you make the password Collie.
  2. You can pay the adoption fee by cheque.  Please make cheques out to “Collie Rescue Network” and mail it to Jennifer MacDonald, PO Box 75, Hornepayne, ON, P0M-1Z0 OR give it to the foster family when you pick up your Collie (please confirm with Pam or Jennifer which is the best way to send a cheque before mailing it as sometimes it’s quicker to give it to the foster family).
  3. You can pay by cash ONLY if you are picking up your Collie directly from the foster family.  If your new family member is coming by volunteer transport, paying by cash is NOT an option.
  4. You can pay by credit card below.  Note that while the link goes to PayPal, you do not need a PayPal account to use PayPal when paying by credit card.  Choose to check out as a guest if you do not have a PayPal account.
