Adoption Spotlight - Mason
Hey there ya'll, they call me Mason, and I'm one handsome dude, don'tcha think? I am a Border Collie and Springer Spaniel mix, and I am all about running, jumping and playing. I am a rough and tumble type of guy and I like to stay on the go, so I am looking for a family that can give me something to do to keep me busy. I would love to go hiking or running with you, or maybe a big fenced yard where I can run around and fetch some balls for you. I am a sweet, affectionate guy and enjoy being around people, I get along swell with other dogs but I may be a little too rough for some. While I enjoy kids I may be a little too much for small kids under 6 years old. Kitties are way too much fun to chase so they tell me that I shouldn't go to a home with them. Wouldn't you like to add an awesome active companion to your family? Well, I'm available and looking for you!
ARCBCR is in dire need of foster homes right now. With a large number of dogs in shelters, especially during the holidays, we need volunteers to open their hearts and homes to a homeless companion. We will help you find the right foster for your home environment, ARCBCR pays for all the vetting, and we help you thru the adoption screening process.

Atlantic Region Central Border Collie Rescue, Inc., (ARCBCR) located in Richmond, Virginia, is a dream come true for a passionate group of border collie lovers who had the good fortune of meeting and befriending each other through past rescue work.
The purpose of ARCBCR is to rescue border collies, border collie mixes and other herding dogs from situations that are neglectful, abusive, and endangering. We take in dogs from shelters, those found as strays, and those that can no longer be kept by their current families.
ARCBCR provides the following for each and every one of our dogs: a loving and caring foster home, all necessary veterinary care, and any rehabilitation a dog might need enabling it to acclimate into its loving, forever home.
Our adoption donation is $225.00. You can be assured that each and every penny goes back into the next dog we take in. The reality is, while you are making arrangements to take home your new family member, one of our volunteers is making arrangements to evaluate and rescue the next ARCBCR dog in need.
ARCBCR members know that it’s ALWAYS all about the dogs.
We are committed to evaluating every dog and every applicant to ensure that we adopt and place every dog into the hands of the best possible family for that dog.
All dogs are spayed or neutered, kept current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and current on heartworm and flea preventative.
We’re glad you’re here. Spend some time with us. Have fun learning about each of our dogs, and please feel free to contact us regarding adoption, volunteering, or donations. We look forward to hearing from you!
