Border Collie Rescue of Minnesota

Contact Us

We are an all-volunteer organization - so email is the best way to contact BCRofMN. Please enter your name, email address, and contact info, along with your question or comment, and the board-member/volunteer best suited to the topic will contact you.

If you are emailing to inquire about a dog, please note that all available information is posted on each dog's page. If you'd like to meet/adopt a dog, please submit an adoption application or attend an adoption event.

All inquires are responded to within 48 hours of being received. Occasionally we have issues w/the website sending inquires and they are not received. If you do NOT receive a response within 48 hours, please re-submit your inquiry, or email us directly at

Thank you.

Just a few notes: (based on our most frequently received inquiries...) PLEASE READ BEFORE SENDING AN INQUIRY!!

1. BCRMN does adopt out of state, but we do require that new homes (once approved), come to Minnesota to meet the dog and take it home. We will not ship dogs.

2. If you are interested in adopting a dog, please complete the adoption application located on the site (located on the ADOPTION tab). PLEASE be sure you've read the dog's bio and that your family meets the list of needs that that specific dog has. We do not set up meetings w/dogs until applicants are approved to adopt (this helps us respect our foster home's volunteered time). Please do not email us to ask how to adopt a dog or if you can meet a dog w/out submitting an application; you will need to complete the adoption application; there are no exceptions.

3. We try to keep the website as updated as possible and as detailed as possible, so the information listed on each dog's profile is accurate and usually ALL of the information we have on the dog. If you have specific questions about the dog, by all means, drop us a note, otherwise, please read each dog's bio and use that information to determine if you feel the dog may be a good fit for your family.
