Rocky Mountain Collie and Sheltie Rescue, Inc. (RMCSR), originally Pueblo Collie/Sheltie Rescue, is a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer-operated organization founded in 1979. We are a dog rescue organization certified with the Colorado Board of Agriculture's State Veterinarian's office.
Our mission is to promote and provide for the humane treatment of Collies and Shelties. We accomplish this by rescuing, rehabilitating and placing lost, abused and abandoned Collies, Collie-mixes, Shelties, and Sheltie-mixes into loving, responsible homes.
All of our rescue dogs live in foster homes. They remain in foster care and receive complete veterinary care until they are ready for adoption, at which point we match them to carefully screened and approved adopters. We do not adopt out dogs at public events.
To meet one of our dogs (or become a volunteer or foster), please read our Adoption Policies and fill out an Adoption Application (or Foster Application). Our application process includes a vet reference check, an initial phone conversation with our director, a follow-up call with the dog’s foster family, and a home check by a RMCSR volunteer.
Please visit our Animal Browse page and bring happiness home! If you know of a Collie or Sheltie in need, or if you have lost yours, please contact us. We help dogs not only in Colorado, but throughout the Rocky Mountain Region.
And please give us a call if you need to relinquish your Collie or Sheltie. We want to help. Contact our Executive Director, Hope, at 719-547-4008.
