Our Mission Statement

Love of Collies & Shelties Rescue of SeVA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue of abused, endangered, neglected, unwanted, or homeless collies, collie mixes, shelties, and sheltie mixes. We provide immediate care through veterinary treatment and home fostering. The goal is to find permanent, loving, and stable homes for all of the animals that pass through our rescue.

How We Do It

Locs of SeVA provides a variety of services


We place our dogs in carefully selected homes, matching them as closely as we can to what we believe their ideal situation is.

Foster Program

Our Foster Program matches screened, eligible foster homes to our dogs, once they have been fully vetted. The foster homes evaluate the dogs in a variety of situations and report back to us regularly so that we may have the best understanding of the dog and their ideal home.


We accept Collies and Shelties, and mixes of these two breeds into our rescue. We know that sometimes life takes an unpredictable direction and we are here to support people who are unable to keep their dogs for any reason.
