The animals in our care have been spayed/neutered, are up to date on vaccinations heartworm tested (if a dog older than 6 months) and on heartworm preventative. Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue is made up of volunteers who give their time, abilities and homes to help place animals where they will receive loving care. The animals in rescue came into rescue for many reasons and with varied backgrounds. We will provide potential adopters as much information as we have on any animal adopted. Sometimes we will have information provided by the owner that released the animal. In the case of a stray we will only have information on their behavior and personality for the time the animal has been in our care. The following points are minimum requirements for adoption of a rescue animal from Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue.

  • The animal will receive the medical care and attention necessary to ensure his/her health and well being.
  • The animal will not be abused in any manner and will be a companion living primarily indoors.No animal will be placed in a home where they will be outdoors at all times.
  • The adopter will provide an adequately fenced yard for the animal to exercise in, unless it is determined that the adopter can provide the animal with adequate exercise under humane control. Chaining a dog is not considered adequate exercise or humane.
  • The dog should have appropriate identification and contact information on at all times.


If at any time Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue determines that the terms and conditions of this agreement have not been met or that the animal is not receiving proper, humane care, Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue may choose to take custody of the animal. Under no circumstances should the animal be abandoned, taken to a shelter, sold, given away, or used for experimentation or guarding purposes. If the animal cannot be kept at any time or for any reason, Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue is to be contacted at bcrescue@mokanbcrescue.org
