a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Sheltie Rescue


Western North Carolina Sheltie Rescue (WesternNCSR) serves North and South Carolina as well as upper Georgia and parts of Eastern Tennessee with seasoned sheltie volunteers.  Between our founding members, we have over 40 year of experience in loving, rescuing and adopting shelties.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, qualified to receive tax deductible donations, bequests, devises, transfers and gifts.


Is a sheltie for me?  Often mistakenly called miniature collies, the Shetland Sheepdog is a distinct breed. They can be sweet and gentle, or rumbustious and playful, they are almost always barky.  It’s what they do. They love to herd and announce to the world that something is happening.  While a great family pet, unless you get them very young and have them grow up with your young children, we would not encourage them around children under 6.  You will never be alone once you own a sheltie, and we mean never, not even in the bathroom  😊
