We do home visits with all adoptions. This makes it difficult for us to adopt dogs outside the Illinois area. If you are from far away please visit our links page to find a rescue group nearer you. If you don't see anything, please send us an mail; we may be able to find something for you.

Adoption fees are $275 for adult dogs, $350 for puppies under one year, and $150 for dogs eight years and older.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Collie Rescue Of Greater Illinois (CRGI) is a local organization that mainly serves the northern portion of Illinois in the rescue and placement of both rough and smooth coated Collies. A small staff of unpaid volunteers supports CRGI in its mission. Because of the absolute need for a home visit for all potential Collie adopters and limited resources to execute this task the placement of Collies outside of our service area is handled on a case by case basis.
