We need to get to know about you and the type of collie you are looking for. Please fill in and submit this adoption form prior to your next step of contacting the Trust for an initial visit or to discuss adoption more thoroughly.

Please make sure you answer all the questions. It is important we know the ages of children resident or visiting, the date of a holiday already booked and how long a dog may be left alone. If there is any question you cannot answer please respond with a reason.

Everyday we receive forms for rescue spaces or adoption, time and resources do not enable us to respond to each one. When you submit this form if there isĀ  a dog you interested in possibly adopting please contact us on the Trust number.

Please make sure you have provided in the further information ages of children and dates of holidays booked.

Thank you
