Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Minnesota Sheltie Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to finding the best and last homes for Shelties in need.
Shelties in our program receive thorough veterinary care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test, and additional medical care as needed. We do not operate a shelter. The Shelties live with dedicated foster families who assess the needs of the dogs to determine the most suitable home. Foster families and adoptive homes are carefully screened so that the family and Sheltie can be carefully matched. We provide resources specific to Shelties on training, basic care, and veterinary care.
We offer specialized training classes for our adopters, as well as community outreach when a Sheltie is lost in the community. Volunteers are available for community programs on Shelties, caring for a dog, humane education, and adopting a rescue dog.
