Here is the cover of our 20th anniversary (!!) 2019 calendar. Three beautiful girls, different sizes. (That is Saylor in the middle with her buddies, Maria and Bailey.) The calendar is on sale now! It is full of photos of the funniest, prettiest, most engaging rescued Shelties. You will enjoy it all year. Here's the link to our Sheltie Shop for more information about purchasing yours.
Who we are ...
Northern Virginia Sheltie Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all volunteer organization established in 1999 to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome Shelties. Most of these Shelties have been relinquished to NVSR by owners unable to keep them. Others are found in shelters, because they are strays or have been abandoned. All our Shelties are fostered in NVSR volunteers' homes (we do not have a shelter), and medical needs are addressed promptly and fully, including spay or neuter. They are then eligible to be adopted to carefully chosen homes, where they will be loved, well cared for, and protected. For the remainder of the adopted dogs' lives, NVSR stays in touch with the adoptive families.
Here's a wonderful video that helps to explain our mission.
