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.
