Come Bye Border Collie Rescue rescues BC's and BC mixes from the Midwest, including the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee. Our adopters come from all over the U.S., but most typically from the same Midwest states. Any potential adopters should understand that they are expected to visit the dog in its foster home.  

The Location of the foster home in the dog's description should be taken into consideration if you are interested in one of the CBBCR foster dogs. We currently have foster homes in Illinois and Indiana. Our mission is to rescue and rehome Border Collies and Border Collie mixes in need throughout the Midwest. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under IRS rules.

CBBCR is run by volunteers.  No one gets a salary, so you can be assured that all donations go toward the operations of the rescue.
