We rescue every purebred collie in our area needing help, no matter how old or how sick.  All donations to Southwest Collie Rescue are tax-deductible under Sect. 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

 

We're finally raising our adoption fees. Here's why.

For the past eight and a half years, SWCR's adoption fees haven't gone up a single penny. They've been $175 for dogs between ages 1 and 9; $225 for puppies under age 1, and $125 or less for senior dogs age 10 and above. But during the same period, SWCR's costs — especially veterinary costs, which are 85 percent of our total expenses — have increased relentlessly.

We're certainly not alone. Nationwide, dog owners now spend an average of $852 per dog, per year, on veterinary care alone, according to the American Pet Products Association. That's up 30% just since 2010!

Dog rescue groups can easily pay a lot more. Many of the collies and shelties we rescue haven't received vet care for years. They have injuries that were neglected and diseases that were never diagnosed. When they come to us they need a lot of care, all at once. Many also need to be spayed or neutered.

So our new adoption fees, which take effect immediately, are as follows:

Dogs between ages 1 and 9, $225.
Puppies under age 1, $275.
Senior dogs age 10 and above, $150 (negotiable depending on age and health).

In setting these fees, we also looked at those currently charged by other rescue groups in the region. We were surprised to discover minimum adoption fees of $250, rising to as much as $375 for younger dogs. So we believe our new fees now are more in line with those of our colleagues.

These collies or shelties have just arrived in SWCR. Each will be vetted and fostered until SWCR knows enough about them to write a bio. That process can take a few weeks. Then they will move to the Collies Needing Homes page. So click on this link to see if the collie you last saw on this page is now ready for adoption.
