|I would love your input regarding a question about what can we non-rescuers do for Border Collie Rescue. Should we grab every Border Collie we see in the pound or tell them to call us *if* no one wants the Border Collies and their time is up?|
Assuming it is a Border Collie, some of us with lighter loads (i.e. under 20 dogs at a time) tend to pull them out right away. I do so because I have the connections and I carefully screen the homes. I'd rather pull it out now than wait for it to get adopted by someone who has no clue what a Border Collie is all about (and the shelter doesn't warn them) and then have it returned a month later. It ends up being quicker and easier if I get it from the get-go.
Others with a full plate already don't have that luxury and normally wait until the dog needs a call from the governor before they go get them out.
