Sheltie Rescue Groups in North America

There are many Sheltie rescue groups throughout North America. Many of those rescue groups rescue only Shelties, while others may rescue other breeds (e.g., Collies, Border Collies) as well. Many of those groups have official status as public charities, designated by their national governments and tax authorities (in the United States, the IRS issues 501(c)(3) letters to signify such status). Not all Sheltie rescue groups belong to the National Sheltie Rescue Network; a few are not members because their policies and actions are incompatible with those of NSRN, while others are eligible and merely await discovery. This page lists every Sheltie rescue group that currently belongs to NSRN.
