Shelties Available as of 01/15/15   (scroll down after reading these important facts)

 

  • ALL the Shelties you see below are currently available for adoption , unless otherwise noted.     To begin the Adoption process, you will need to read this first.     Adoption Information
     

  • All dogs in our program are purebred Shelties, unless otherwise noted.

  • All Shelties listed are vet checked and healthy, temperament tested, spayed or neutered, brought current on shots, HW tested, wormed, flea protected, micro-chipped and groomed before they leave.

  • Our Senior Program is a program developed to promote the placement of senior dogs, (which are always so hard to adopt out).   Under this program,  we will help with vet bills for extraordinary or age related issues.  Ask for details.
    Read one adopters story

  • We do not recommend most Shelties with toddlers.  If you have small children, we would suggest a Lab or Golden Retriever.   These breeds are much better with small children.

  • Size-   There is NO SUCH BREED as a "Miniature Sheltie".   There are very small Shelties and there are large shelties, but they are all "Shelties" 

  • For the comfort and safety of our dogs,  we DO require a fully fenced (front or rear) yard to adopt a dog from us.   If you are "going to put up a fence"....please wait until it is up and secure before sending in your app.

 

Can't adopt, but want to help the Shelties? 
      
We are a totally volunteer organization.  All funds are used solely on vet care for our dogs.

 

PLEASE MAKE A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TO CENTRAL ILLINOIS SHELTIE RESCUE!!!   We are funded solely by your donations. We need your help!
