Wiccaweys Rescued Border Collies & Working Sheepdogs are a not-for-profit rescue dedicated to the welfare of Border Collies & Working Sheepdogs. We are based in the UK.
We have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed thousands of Collies, many of whom would have otherwise been put to sleep, as well as the other breed types that sneak in from time to time. At any one time, we have up to 50 dogs in our care who we will work to get to know and understand before finding their ideal forever home. We have a dedicated retirement home for our older residents, with comfy sofas, their own tv, and their own garden and patio area.
We specialise in helping the collies that other rescues often turn away. No dog is ever on a time limited, they have as much time and space as they need to discover themselves. We make sure to take the time to get to know all new arrivals and engage in some basic training. Not only does this help us assess what a dog needs in their new home, it also makes the transition to their new life that bit easier.
Our dogs enjoy lots of group socialising and playtime every day, and many are very good with other dogs. Wiccaweys dogs also get to meet cats, horses, sheep and goats. Naturally, there are always dogs who do not socialise well with other dogs, animals or children, and we make sure to get to know a dog well enough to advise on who they can share their home with.
Each year Wiccaweys receive thousands of phone calls from owners seeking help. We are always happy to provide behavioural advice free of charge to help owners understand their dogs and ensure that more dogs stay in their homes.
Wiccaweys relies solely on donations and we are always grateful of any help, whether it be volunteering, blankets, toys or food; we use tins of Butcher’s Tripe Mix and natural dog treats with no artificial additives or colours. Of course a kind financial donation to help us to continue our work is always very much welcomed.
