Okanagan Collie Rescue is a registered non-profit society which operates primarily in British Columbia and Alberta. Our main purpose is to improve the quality of life for castaway purebred and mixed-breed collies - by providing rescue, foster home, and placement care services.
We are dedicated to the re-homing of our dogs into loving, adoptive, "forever" homes, each of which are carefully evaluated and screened prior to placement. We are committed to working with collie breeders to ensure the humane placement of former breeding stock.
We cooperate with humane societies and the SPCA to lessen their burden by taking responsibility for collies coming into care. Wherever possible, we work with other rescue groups to ensure that resources are shared.
About OKANAGAN COLLIE RESCUE SOCIETY
Okanagan Collie Rescue is a registered non-profit society which operates primarily in British Columbia and Alberta. Because the historical roots of the society are in the Okanagan, we have retained the name. OCR is dedicated to providing shelter and care to purebred and mixed-breed collies who have been abandoned or place into shelters.
Our goal is to match these ‘castaway’ collies with families who will provide a safe, loving and permanent home. We have successfully placed collies of all ages - from young adults to seniors requiring a safe haven for their golden years. OCR fosters its rescued collies in private homes throughout British Columbia and Alberta, and assists with transportation and placement of collies from other areas of Canada and the United States.
