~IN MEMORY OF CLIFF~
This week my family had a loss of a very special litle dog named Cliff, a Westie. Cliffy belonged to someone I consider my fourth brother and his wife, Jimmy and Carrie Perry. This photo gives you his personality - very cool little dog! Cliffy was a rescue and several years later when the two children came, he accepted them as his pack right away and never skipped a beat. He wore doggles before they were fashionable!!
Cliffy was 12 and died of a very rare liver ailment called hepatocutaneous syndrome. It is a very uncomfortable, painful ailment. it is actually caused by an amino acid deficiency. I had a foster dog some years back when I was with NJ named Jax who had this. My vet had only seen one other case 20 years ago.
Rest in Peace, Cliffy! I'm sure Maxi, Stormy and Isabel are all waiting for you at the bridge to welcome you and show you the ropes! We love and miss you!
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 allpriceless 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 betterquality of life for these beautiful, deserving dogs.
Tri-State Shetland Sheepdog Rescue provides services to all areas of Long Island (Nassauand 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.
TSSSR will also accept Collies into our program as there is currently no Collie Rescue in the NYC/LI area.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. All contributions are tax-deductible.

9.22.13 Our August Picnic was a Fantastic Success!
|Thank you to everyone who attended our picnic in August!
At one point we had about 80 Shelties and their families; rescue Shelties and their families, breeders with their show dogs, and people with Shelties from many different places all together celebrating our beloved breed while raising money for less fortunate Shelties. It was truly an amazing day!
For the many people who had already left prior to this photo being take next year we will take the photo much earlier!
7.18.13 Clancy Earned His Master Flyball Title! Good going, Clancy!
||TSSSR alumni, Clancy, has earned his Master Flyball title!
Clancy came to us from a shelter saying they feared we'd have to euthanize him because he was so wild. Many Thanks to his fostermom Ann O. who worked diligently for months to give this wild boy boundaries and let him see he loved to learn and his forever Mom, Margaret W. who continued his training and gave him a job, our boy is a champ! Huge congratulations to Margaret and Clancy on this wonderful achievement! We are very proud of our boy! (Clancy is the third dog running.)

11.23.13 Please keep Doris in your prayers.Earlier in the week ACC had a senior Pom in need of rescue. We contacted a long time rescue friend of TSSSR to see if we could network for the little girl and without hesitating, Liz M said she'd take her.
Doris had "possible pneumonia". Once at the vet, she was found not to have pneumonia, a mouth loaded with cancer - on her palate, going down her throat, the side of her gum and lick. Poor Doris could not really eat or open her mouth and had pus coming from her nose as her nasal passages were so infected. We asked about surgery, possible chemo - but sadly the vet said there was nothing he could do. I stayed with her while she was let go, and even with all her pain and in the arms of a stranger, she was the sweetest cuddle bug. Doris will be remembered as part of TSSSR's family forever.
And thank you to Liz for wanting to try to hard with her.
Please keep Doris in your prayers.
