The birth of Maine Sheltie Rescue came in response to the need to find good homes for Shelties that are abandoned, lost, or mistreated and that are in dire need of a new lease on life. We also help, in extreme emergencies, those who have to give up their dogs. We feel that the responsibility for caring for lost, neglected, and abused Shelties must rest with those who know and love the breed.
Maine Sheltie Rescue is made up of individuals who have many years of experience with this breed and understand the needs of the dogs. What better reward could there be than knowing that dozens of shelties, which otherwise might have been put to sleep, left out to starve, or to run loose in the streets to be crippled or killed in traffic, are instead currently in loving homes.
