30+ Sheltie Rescues To Adopt A Shetland Sheepdog!

Ready to adopt a Shetland Sheepdog or “Sheltie” as they are commonly called? We bet there is a sheltie rescue near you that can help you find the perfect fit for your family.

Be sure to download our checklist of questions to ask before adopting a dog to help you know what to look for when adopting.

Since we really encourage the “adopt don’t shop” attitude, we hope you will consider reaching out to these rescues to add a new Shetland Sheepdog to your family. This will help keep backyard breeders from making dogs suffer and you will give a homeless dog a great life.

Have a Sheltie you need to re-home? You can reach out to these rescues for help there too. Typically purebred dogs will find homes quicker with a breed specific rescue.

The list of Shetland Sheepdog rescues features all the rescues we could find that seemed active in rescue. There are other rescues out there that we did not list that had websites that were no longer active or Facebook pages that have not been updated. We will do our best to keep this resource updated!
