Our current dogs

Collie Rescue Of Greater Illinois, Inc. (CRGI) is a local organization that mainly serves the northern portion of Illinois in the rescue and placement of both rough and smooth coated Collies. A small staff of unpaid volunteers supports CRGI in its mission. Because of the absolute need for a home visit for all potential Collie adopters and limited resources to execute this task the placement of Collies outside of our service area is handled on a case by case basis. If you are outside of our adoption area, please visit the Collie Rescue Foundation for a complete list of Collie rescue groups across the United States. Each rescued Collie has a modest adoption fee which covers most of the dog's expenses.

Adoption fees are $325 for adult dogs, $400 for puppies under one year, and $150 for dogs eight years and older.

All rescued Collies receive the following veterinary care:

  • Spaying or neutering
  • DHLPP & rabies vaccines
  • Heartworm test, (then placed on Interceptor Spectrum)
  • Fecal exam
  • Eye check (puppies)
  • Teeth cleaning (if necessary)
  • Bordatella (kennel cough vaccine)
  • Microchip implant for permanent identification
  • After veterinary care and a complete grooming, the Collie is placed in a foster home for a minimum of two weeks for socialization and evaluation of temperament, quirks, likes and dislikes until adopted.
We require anyone interested in adopting a collie to fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Shilo update - 6/8/2018:

Shilo has settled in nicely and got used to house living. He’s feeling more relaxed and enjoys the attention. Shilo will come and lean on his foster mom or dad and ask for some petting or back scratching. And when he’s feeling happy, he will give few collie nibbles. He LOVES to run and play with other dogs! Another favorite activity of his is to play a fetch with his foster mom or dad.

Rough Collie Mix

Rush in new to our program. He was surrendered by his family to the Chicago Animal Care and Control shelter. After we were contacted by the CACC we were able to pull this boy out quickly. A noisy shelter is no place for a senior dog.
We are getting to know Rush so stay tuned for updates.

Ranger (Male)

Adopted

1 Years

Smooth Tricolor

Ranger is a young and sweet boy. He loves to run and play with other dogs and is doing well with the resident cats. Ranger is quite intrigued by the guinea pig. He is bit nervous about loud noises and new people so he will require a family that will understand his behavior and teach him to be more confident.
