Providing a unique “free-range” safe haven for Border Collies in need

about us

Since 1998, Border Collie Rescue Cape Town has been devoted to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming Border Collies in need. Our mission is to offer a safe haven for Border Collies in need. Each dog in our care goes through individual assessments and, where required, tailored rehabilitation before we find them loving forever homes. We also work closely with adopters to ensure successful rehoming and provide ongoing support for the well-being of these remarkable dogs.

At Border Collie Rescue, we offer a unique “free-range” environment, promoting each Border Collie’s physical and mental well-being. Our expansive runs encourage socialization and play, while our rehabilitation programs are personalized to each dog’s unique needs. This commitment extends to comprehensive family assessments and ongoing support, ensuring that each Border Collie finds a nurturing and lasting home.
