Other notes about our adoption process
We do not charge a fee to fill out an application. Please be mindful of volunteers’ time in processing your application. If at any part of the application process you find you are no longer interested in adopting from us, we ask that you please promptly contact us to let us know that we may stop processing your application.

Nebraska Border Collie Rescue, Inc. is an all volunteer operated organization.  We represent Border Collies and Border Collie mixes who need to find safe, permanent homes.  Please understand that while we will work as efficiently as possible to process your application we are volunteers who donate our time.
