Welcome to Tri-State Sheltie Rescue
Tri-State Shetland Sheepdog Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit rescue organization dedicated to helping Shetland Sheepdogs in need.
Our main goal is to provide every Sheltie in need with a permanent, loving “forever home”.
We care for Shelties that have been abused dogs and neglected and make sure they have the proper veterinary care they need.
We provide safe, loving homes for shelties who find themselves as homeless dogs, abandoned or no longer wanted. This can be in the form of strays or strays in shelter situations or owner surrenders.
We take in Shelties whose families can no longer care for them and must relinquish them due to a variety of reasons such as death or illness, current economy, loss of home or moving (owner relinquishes) or those that simply decide they no longer want their pet.
Every Sheltie in need has a place with Tri-State Sheltie Rescue regardless of their age (puppy to senior dogs) or health status; they are all priceless and deserve a loving home where theywill be respected and cherished family members! We also give extra attention to seniors dogs and those who are disabled and special needs requiring extra assistance.
Through temporary foster homes and eventually the carefully screened dog adoption process it is our goal to guide all of our rescues to a new "forever home" and finally achieve a better quality of life for these beautiful, deserving dogs.
Tri-State Shetland Sheepdog Rescue provides services to all areas of Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties), the New York Metropolitan area (NYC, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island and Manhattan), New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and parts of Delaware. We have many volunteers in NY, NJ, CT, PA and if we can get to a Sheltie or Shelties in need in any of these areas or a dog in need of being rehomed can be bought to one of our volunteers, we will assist in any way possible.
Our Rescue organization is completely run by volunteers and is funded solely by your generous donations.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. All contributions are tax-deductible.

3.15.13 Charlie Had Left Us....Christine Cared for Him Wonderfully
Last week Charlie came into rescue from Brooklyn AC&C.
We thought Charlie had kennel cough so he went into a foster home with fostermom, Christine R. who had no other dogs. Charlie was not feeling well at all - far worse then he should have with kennel cough. He had a fever, wasn't eating and was very lethargic. After spending two days at the vets office and various tests, Charlie sadly has lymphoma and from the looks of it, has liver cancer as well. Tonight Charlie is going to leave us to go the bridge with his fostermom Christine and our fostermom Lisa S. by his side. Charlie, we are so sorry we couldn't help you, but are so happy you left this world with us rather than in the shelter. A very special thank you to Christine, who is a first time fostermom and did a truly amazing job with Charlie and handled his illness and issues wonderfully. We cannot thank you enough. Charlie was lucky to have you.
