Featured Dog: Beau
The featured dog of the month is the dapper Beauregard (Beau). He's a wonderful mix of Border Collie, Lab and Collie. Does it get any better than this?!?
Beau came to ARC in rough shape and definitely needed a little TLC to get him back to the dapper guy he really is. Beau is a large boy at around 80lbs, a 'gentle giant' that will make a great family dog. Just think of it as more Beau to love!
He knows his name & responds well when called. He was initially 'food anxious' but that has been corrected by a twice-daily feeding schedule. Beau has a very sweet disposition, displays no aggression whatever, plays well with other dogs & human contact. We think he's about 6 years of age.
Beau is looking for his people to find him and take him to his forever home! If you would like to add Beau to your family please fill out our adoption application.

It's time for better weather and longer days. Everything is better with a furry companion so dust off your running or hiking shoes and get outside!
If you are looking for things to do this Spring, how about:
- Adopt or Foster a Rescue
- Sports for you and your dog
- Hiking, walking, swimming, agility, etc
- And above all, put work away and spend time with your furry family!
Atlantic Region Central Border Collie Rescue is always looking for volunteers, primarily foster homes. Temporary foster homes are always welcomed also! For example, provide a short term home for a foster dog until another foster home becomes available; or if a foster family goes on vacation and needs a temporary spot for their foster dog while they are away! Temporary foster homes are mostly needed in the Richmond and Northern, VA areas.
Perhaps you aren’t sure you are ready for a high energy full bred border collie, there are also many calmer border collie mixes that may better suit your family. However, if you like those crazy BCs, we can find you one of those as well. We will help you find the right foster for your home environment, ARCBCR pays for all the vetting, and we help you through the adoption screening process.
Since we rescue dogs from many different areas in the Mid-Atlantic region, we can always use help with transporting a dog from the shelter to their foster family. This often requires just one leg of the entire journey.
Home visits are also needed, where you would visit a potential adopter in your area to ensure that the home is prepared for a new family member. We will walk you through the process for doing a home visit and this is a great opportunity to help a dog find his forever home!
If interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer form and our coordinator will be in touch with you!
