Herd It Through The Grapevine

Herding Dog Rescue


Many of the dogs that we rescue are saved only hours or even minutes before they are due to be euthanized.

Others are sent to us because for any number of reasons, their current owners are unable to keep them.

Herding dogs make wonderful companions for those who can give them the time and the outlet for their energy. They are not “lap dogs” who will be happy sitting on a sofa all day, but their energy and loyalty can provide the right home with unending love and enjoyment.

Adoption Fee: We have an adoption fee, which is typically $250 per dog. This fee helps to reimburse our rescue for some - but not always all - of the veterinary and other costs incurred in the process of rescuing and caring for each dog.  To see how adoption fees are spent, click here.
