Listed below are collies in the TCCR Hospice Care Program. These collies are terminally ill or too ill or aged to adopt. Therefore, they will live out their days under the loving care of a TCCR hospice foster parent. They will receive abundant love and all the medical attention they need, not to mention lots of spoiling and petting.

Medical costs for these patients are very high. If you would like to sponsor one of the following hospice patients, please send an email to contact@collierescue.com. In return, you will receive pictures and updates of your sponsored collie. Thanks to everyone who has supported and continues to support TCCR. We couldn't do it without you!

Howell came to TCCR as an owner surrender. He’s a tall, tri-color, neutered collie boy, approximately 10 years old. He's up-to-date on his shots. We think he could afford to put on some weight, as he's a very slim 50 lbs.
He's pretty spry for a “senior”. He is able to jump a 31-inch doggy gate (he only did this once, as he didn’t want to be locked away from everyone else).
He’s a real lover and wants to be with his people. He is extremely loving, sweet, pretty mellow, and very affectionate. He loves to cuddle and sleep with his head on your chest, and likes it if you put your arm around him.
He seems to be more tolerant with our 9 year-old collie than he is with our 2.5 year-old collie. He would probably be better off as an only dog or with an older dog. He gets along fine with our two collies, and when our younger collie gets over rambunctious, Howell just gives him a little warning and our boy backs off.
We were told he is used to being crated and covered with a blanket although we haven't been crating him, as there has been no need to, as he’s not a problem at all when left alone. The vet confirmed that the wearing down of and the few broken teeth he has were probably from chewing on a crate.
He really hasn’t played with any stuffed or squeaky toys, but he does seem to like to chew on rawhide bones a little bit. He gets a little nervous during fireworks and thunderstorms and starts to pace and wants to be reassured.
He will bark to let you know if he needs to go outside, if he thinks it’s time to be fed, or he just wants your attention. When it comes to eating, Howell is a grazer, and sometimes has to be coaxed to eat.
He will share a water bowl (drink at the same time as our dogs), and he's not food aggressive to them or us at all.
He is a flower waiting to blossom. His wonderful personality shows through more and more each day.
