Due to limited resources, we are unable to accept owner surrender dogs into rescue at this time. We encourage anyone looking to re-home their dog to review the detailed information on re-homing at badrap.org

Who We Are

By Tyler Fetterman


Donations are tax deductible!


This pretty girl is SIDNEY, a 1-1/2 year old BC mix. SIDNEY'S favorite thing is her person. She is a dedicated and loyal companion who will follow you around the house or lay quietly at your feet. SIDNEY is very sweet and affectionate, she loves attention and is eager to please. She quickly bonds with her people and wants to be with them. Since she is so closely bonded with her human, she needs to be in a home where she is not left alone for more than a few hours at a time. SIDNEY gets along well with other dogs, and cats too. She is curious and playful and will engage other dogs in play. Click/tap to see and read more about Sidney.

Meet LUCY! LUCY is a soft, rather sensitive girl that is looking for a very special home. We are looking for a more rural lifestyle for LUCY, with active owners that have a big yard to play in. She will be more suited to outdoorsy people that like to hike and camp, versus a city environment that would likely cause her anxiety. A handler with calm, confident energy is going to be the best situation for LUCY, one that is  already experienced with the more sensitive type border collies. Your efforts will be greatly rewarded, as she has proved to be a total sweetheart once she is accustomed to her new home.

LUCY is 3 years old, so she doesn't come with a lot of the puppy behaviors that can sometimes pose a challenge. She loves toys, chew things, and balls.  An absolute delight to foster, LUCY is a big time cuddler, made even sweeter by her small stature. Click/tap to see and read more about Lucy!!
