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.
Online Application

  • Adopted: The adoption contract for this dog has been finalized.
  • Medical Hold: The dog is in a foster home but is not yet ready for adoption due to ongoing medical treatment.

Shilo (Male)

Available

4 Years

Smooth Tricolor

Shilo is a handsome, happy, fun and energetic boy.  Ready to play fetch any time!

Want a dog to train with? Shilo would love that! He can show you just how smart he is! He is very food motivated and eager to please.  He likes to keep his mind and body active. In a short time at his foster home, he’s learned his name and how to “sit” on command and started working on “stay” and “come.” He needed some confidence building and training has helped him feel more comfortable in new situations.
