I do some volunteer work for the Collie Rescue of the Carolinas. Sometimes we have a collie who has had a terrible time, and needs to have a home with a family who will take good care of him and not discard him. If you live in the Carolinas or Virginia, and have been considering adopting a dog, take a look at Jamie: http://collierescue.net/available/index.html. Spread the word around. He needs a home!
