EFFECTIVE AUGUST 20, 2020, WE ARE PRIORITIZING APPLICATIONS FOR THOSE ADOPTERS WHO CAN TRAVEL TO THE DALLAS/ FORT WORTH OR AUSTIN TEXAS AREAS TO ADOPT.
To all of our applicants:
Over the last several months, we have received a record number of applicants interested in adopting from BCSAVE. Our applicants have come from all across the United States. As one of the few Border Collie rescues that we are aware of that adopts outside of our home state of Texas, we are honored that so many of you have chosen us to possibly help you find your next best friend. In addition to dozens of applicants, we have seen a decrease in dogs coming into the rescue and both of these things have made it extremely challenging to rehome our pups in the best way possible. Lastly, COVID has upended our ability to coordinate out of state transports due to various restrictions and quarantine rules for crossing state lines.
As a result, our Board has met and decided that effective August 20, 2020, in order for us to best focus our limited volunteer resources and time on finding homes for as many of our pups as possible, we are prioritizing adopters who can come to either the Dallas/ Fort Worth or Austin Texas areas to meet our pups and finalize adoptions locally.
We do not want to discourage any applicants. If you are able to travel to Texas to adopt, please let us know. If you are not able to travel at this time but would like to continue with the application process and once approved, be placed on a “Pending” list, let us know that as well. Our ability to coordinate transportation to adopters outside of the North and Central Texas areas should become much easier as COVID restrictions begin to lift.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. We understand that this may not be what everyone wants to hear but at this time, it is the best way for us to be able to assist our dogs with the limited resources we have.
