We'll be putting together our 2020 calendar in just a few months. If you have a great photo of your rescued Sheltie, please send it to email@example.com. Make sure it is a high resolution photo. If it's good enough, it may be used for a full-page monthly photo. Questions? Send them to us, too.
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.
NVSR is a proud affiliate of the National Sheltie Rescue Association. Individuals can become members, too! Check it out and join to help Shelties in need anywhere in the USA and Canada.
