Border Collies In Need (BCIN) rescue dogs have been generating a lot of interest from our website and other internet communities. Our rescue volunteers work diligently to match adoption applicants with the dogs in our program, and we have fine-tuned our processes so that we are able to offer adoptions and services more quickly than you might expect.|
We recommend that you submit an application for pre-approval even if you do not see a particular Border Collie that interests you at the time of submittal, as dogs are continuously entering our program. After pre-approval, you can send us an email when that special canine catches your eye, and we will continue the adoption process. As we evaluate temperament, we give strong consideration to matching dogs with people who have previously submitted an adoption application.
Once an application has been reviewed and approved by BCIN, appointments to meet our dogs are scheduled on a first-come, first-served priority basis. A pre-approved application does not guarantee adoption. The interview process continues at a “meet & greet”. Applicants will be asked additional questions, and observed on how well they (and any other dogs they may have) interact with the BC they are considering as an addition to their family.
“Meet & Greets” are scheduled by appointment only. Based in San Pedro, our dogs are located throughout Southern California. The majority of our appointments will be conducted in the area the dog is housed in. If timing permits, BCIN, at their discretion, may schedule pre-appointments at our events prior to, or right at, the beginning of the event start time.
Our ultimate goal is to adopt our dogs into secure, forever, and loving homes in a timely manner and to give them every opportunity to be seen by all potential adopters. BCIN will not hold dogs for/at an event, or otherwise, as this would not be in their best interest.
