Dear TSSSR Family, Friends & Supporters

On February 28, 2014, Tri-State Shetland Sheepdog Rescue lost our President, founder, great friend and wonderful human being, Juliann Canzoneri.   

We are deeply saddened by her passing but are inspired by her life’s mission
to help animals in need. As the organization focuses on the dogs that remain in our care,
we are going to continue to honor Juliann’s legacy as much as possible.

Until we get a good understanding of our of our resources and options,
we are no longer taking in new dogs
,
but we are always happy to help owners connect with other area Sheltie Rescue organizations. 
Please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@tristatesheltierescue.org for more information.
As we still have several dogs in our care, donations continue to be needed
and will go fully to the care of our adoptable dogs.


Welcome to Tri-State Sheltie Rescue

MISSION STATEMENT

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 yourgenerous 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.

1.25.14 Sad Goodbye to Charlie & Teddy


TSSSR sadly said goodbye to two of our former rescues, Charlie and Teddy, this past week.  Both these dogs had wonderful homes for the last part of their life and fortunately left this world knowing they were truly loved and cherished family members.  Our heartfelt sympathies to their families and all who loved them.


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.)

7.1.13 How Can You Help? Why Not Sponsor One of Our Dogs...



Please meet Willow a 4 yr old double Merle Sheltie.
Willow is laying with a bunch of treats that her sponsor sent to her. Willow was fortunate enough to have a sponsor, Stacey, who sends her $25 a month toward her care and these goodies were an extra she sent to Willows foster mom for her!
Willow's fostermom emails her sponsor updates and photos of the dog she is helping.
