Become a border collie angel

Many dogs arrive at the Farm and need to stay awhile in order to rebuild their trust in humans or be better socialized with other dogs and/or people.  Their issues are often not big ones but the time they need here can last anywhere from one month to six months.
Additionally, almost 99% of the dogs coming into rescue have issues with men. This always surprises people but if you think for a moment...women don't generally hit dogs...men do, so the dogs carry that fear into this situation based on their history.  It can often take months to help them trust, which is what John painstakingly tackles.  

One dog was so terrified that it took John 3 hours, just sitting in the car, before the dog would even move from the back of the truck.  He was paralyzed with fear just by John's presence.  Slowly but surely, day after day, literally hour after hour, he grew to trust John. 

Our philosophy is to give these dogs the time they need to recalibrate their behaviors and learn new associations with people.  The cost of ongoing care is high.  Just like any family dog, needs arise and we must handle them, whether it's antibiotics, blood chemistry analysis, or shots, these dogs require more from us. 

We estimate $350 a for a 6 month stay at the Farm as our cost of care for every dog entering the Farm.  Some costs are much higher, especially with these Seniors in the Farmhouse Sanctuary.  Please choose a dog that pulls at your heart and we'll happily apply your funds to their care and update  you accordingly, especially when they are adopted!

To Foster, Volunteer and/or Transport
The Rescue world is comprised of volunteers who love the breed or just want to help animals. We appreciate anyone who is interested in helping us carry out the work at Glen Highland Farm because there's no way we could ever do it alone.

TRANSPORT:

There are people near and far who help transport dogs between states, insuring that the dogs can come from pounds all over to get to us, sometimes by car, sometimes by air. No matter how they arrive, without each person doing their part in the 'dog chain', these dogs would not survive. Each person drives a distance of approximately 1-2 hours in most cases so its not a burden on any one person.

So, if you'd like to help, please consider TRANSPORT. All you need is to provide us with your phone and email and whatever distances and areas you're willing to cover and we'll contact you whenever the need arises to move a dog. If you're called and cannot help out, that's okay, maybe another time will work out.

WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF TRANSPORT HELP SINCE DOGS COME FROM NEW JERSEY, CONNECTICUT, LONG ISLAND, NYC AND OTHER NEARBY NORTHEAST AREAS.


FOSTERING:

Many people really want to help dogs directly so they FOSTER. A dog or two will live in your home for one to 9 months until a new home is found. You provide the love, the food and shelter, and help the dog in whatever ways possible. If you can teach obedience like sit, stay and come, that's very helpful to getting the dog ready for a new home. 

GHF is expanding the foster program and looking for additional homes within TWO hours of the Farm who are willing to care for a dog. (All vetting is handled by the Farm)  Foster dogs could be young or old and may require a long-term stay up to 9 months, depending on the dog. Fencing is required and children must be over the age 
of 7, no exceptions.

Please submit a foster application if you are interested. Click here

WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF FOSTER HOMES SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY DOGS NEEDING HELP.


VOLUNTEERING:

Other people really like to get involved at Glen Highland Farm as a VOLUNTEER. If you'd like to help with the dozen rescue dogs onsite, we're glad to have extra hands for feeding, walking, exercising and playing. If you love dogs, this is a great place to be. 

Other ways to volunteer are in helping with mailings, with internet research or with transport coordination. If you have a special skill, were always open to whatever youd like to do. For example, some people have graphics backgrounds and offer to design logos or brochures or the website; other people have connections for food, supplies and other dog items, so they organize items coming to us.

WE VALUE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BRING TO THE RESCUE WORK AND HOPE THAT YOU WANT TO JOIN US IN HELPING THESE GREAT DOGS!
