Welcome to Collie & Sheltie Rescue of Middle TN

Who We Are

Established in 1999 (and formerly known as Collie Rescue of Thompsons Station, TN and Collie Rescue of Chapel Hill, TN) Collie & Sheltie Rescue of Middle TN primarily rescues unwanted, neglected, abused, or abandoned Collies and Shelties.

How We Operate

Every dog adopted out by our organziation must be intended for a housedog. Collies long to be with their companion/owner/family. They tend to get bored very quickly when cast outside to stay. We require a fenced yard. We do, on occasion, make an exception to this rule, depending on the situation, and the dog. Exceptions are at the sole discretion of our organization and primarily IF the dog is a known fence climber. We do not consider electronic fence an acceptable fence. Collies necks have to be shaved in order for a shock collar to penetrate their heavy coats and if t-storm scared, they will often run through it deliberately to run away, join (or chase) another dog, a cat or a kid on a bike, and then they can't get back in. In fact, an electronic fence gives an entirely unwarranted sense of security and cannot keep predators from entering the yard. An adoption application will be sent upon receipt of interest in learning about a particular rescue......fenced yard, vet reference and home visits are required. We will then schedule a phone interview upon receipt of the application. Adoption fee does apply to defray discounted vet costs and vary upon age....seniors are discounted to the right home. Our adoption fees helps to carry us from one dog to the next as not all rescues come in healthy, nor young. All rescues are fully vetted (treated for heartworms where applicable), placed on heartworm prevention and flea and tick control. *SORRY - we do not ship/transport dogs*
