Online resources are the best tool for locating a sheepdog rescue organization. Websites such as PetFinder.com and AdoptaPet.com provide categorized listings of dog rescue and adoption organizations across the country. Many dogs rescues specialize in sheepdogs and other large dog breeds.
Dog rescues specializing in sheepdogs are throughout the United States but are most prevalent in New England and along the West coast. Many organizations specialize in particular breeds of sheepdogs. Online searches highlight organizations such as the New England Old English Sheepdog Rescue and the Old English Sheepdog Rescue of Southern California.
If web searches don't result in any nearby rescue and adoption organizations, try contacting local dog and animal rescue organizations, such as the ASPCA, and inquire about local groups that specialize in sheepdog rescue and adoption.
Sheepdogs and other large dog breeds are some of the most difficult dog breeds for adoptive and rescue organizations to handle because of their size. As a result, the ASPCA or other large-scale rescue organizations often turn to specialized units for placement of Sheepdogs.
When looking for Sheepdog puppies or adult dogs, it is important to find an organization that specializes in caring for large dog breeds and responsibly placing them in adoptive homes.
