The Collielaw Retirement Scheme

We are regularly asked to take in and re-home older dogs.

Unfortunately not many people come to us specifically asking for an older dog and they can be difficult to re-home.

The Collielaw Retirement Scheme is simply a long term re-homing program where an older dog can be taken into a permanent home for the rest of its natural life and where Border Collie Rescue will provide some financial support to the dog in the home if there are large unexpected veterinary bills.
It fits between Fostering and Adoption as a shared responsibility.
Dogs with long term medical conditions, certain disabilities and some over 12 years old can qualify for this program.

Re-homing will be undertaken on the basis of an individual formal agreement between Border Collie Rescue and the home.
