Big boy Titan, a 9-week-old sable/white, has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. He will be sharing his new home with mom, dad, human sister and a canine big brother. It’s hard to imagine anyone being able to resist such a cute ball of fluff and, of course, his new family is already completely in love.
Ten week old pup, Dash, renamed Nick, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. He shares his new home with mom, dad, big brother collie and his very own kitty to terrorize ;-).
Handsome boy Braden, a 1-year-old sable/white, has been adopted and will be living in Iowa. Before coming to MWCR this big boy had been through a couple of homes looking for just the right spot to fit his personality. His foster mom realized that he was the perfect fit there and now he’s looking forward to mentoring other foster pups in the future. Congratulations on landing in just the right place!
People have asked me how I spend my time now that I’m no longer working full-time. My answer is that I spend my time making a difference.
All of us who support and volunteer with the Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue truly are making a difference. We make a difference in the lives of those sweet collies every time we renew our memberships, help with a transport, share information about a collie in need, volunteer at an event, buy an MWCR calendar, or make a donation. Because of all of our members and supporters, our foster collies receive needed veterinary care and find loving homes. The integrity and great work done by our volunteers have resulted in MWCR becoming a highly respected rescue. Plus, our collies and their families are wonderful ambassadors for MWCR. We are an all-volunteer organization that relies on all of you to make the organization a success. MWCR is very fortunate to have the level of support, dedication, and commitment that we have.
Thank you for giving MyLinda (Barke), and me the opportunity to continue in our roles with MWCR. Your involvement with MWCR makes our work that much easier and makes a difference in the lives of our collies. Thank you for voting, for your kind words, and for always being there for our dear collies.
Obi came into our lives this past year on Halloween. Fortunately, he was being fostered with Lori Goodsell who provided a very nurturing environment and taught him a lot in the month he lived with her. He’s been with us for about four months now and the bonds are very strong. He’s a great dog: smart, affectionate, playful, and totally handsome. He loves long hikes, games of fetch, cuddling on the couch and being with his people. We’ve struck gold twice with MWCR and greatly appreciate the important work you do.”

The 2016 Minnesota Animal Welfare Conference to be held May 26 in St. Cloud, provides new opportunities this year. Attendees will have two tracts of learning to choose from for the day. One focuses on medical issues while the other prods concepts regarding shelters and rescue groups that can help them grow and serve in a positive manner.
The medical tract will provide continuing education credits for veterinarians. Shelter director of operations, executive directors, and kennel managers are also welcomed to attend any of these presentations. Thanks to a special grant obtained through the ASPCA, fees for veterinarians attending this will be waived. This is an opportunity that truly cannot be passed over, but space is limited.
Please contact the Tri-County Humane Society for more information.
