Read the story of Persy aka


Daisy, is one of the great Minnesota Collie Rescue (predecessor of MWCR) stories.
Click here to read how this 27-pound weakling grew up to become a therapy dog!

Tasha, adopted through MWCR in 2001 at the age of 4, has earned the
title of Versatility Companion through the American Working Collie Association.

We lost Persy last night, June 16, 2007. Click the picture above to read the full story.

Joni Lindberg has let us know that Kellie, Joni's older, sweet foster girl, died this morning at the vet's office. Kellie had been losing weight, was very confused, and could not rest, poor girl. Joni's vet surmises that Kellie had a brain tumor, and that she has had this degenerative condition for some time. Joni was with Kellie at the vet's office and held her until the end. Kellie has always seemed older than her age would indicate, and this condition would explain why.
Joni, thank you so much for caring for Kellie and giving her love and care during her last days. We all send our sympathy in the loss of Kellie.

After undergoing successful treatment for heartworm,
Sassy was being spayed the final step before her adoption was to be finalized.
Sadly, she never woke up from the anesthesia.
Read the tribute to Sassy from those who knew and loved her.

Oliver at Rainbow Bridge August 2005

Sadly, Scottie passed away after his
second injection for heartworm treatment.
Needless to say, this is a terrible parasite and
a harsh treatment for dogs to endure.
Scottie was a very sweet and gentle soul
and much loved by his foster mom.

Scottie at Rainbow Bridge June 22, 2005

Time is too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice.
But for those who love, Time is not.

Ruby at Rainbow Bridge August 18, 2004

Ruby came into rescue approximately 4 months ago at the age of 11.  She was a healthy senior collie but stopped eating and interacting with others in the last week.  Her foster family took her to the vet where it was discovered she had a mass in her stomach that was not there 4 months ago. As difficult as this is to do, it was decided to help Ruby cross to the bridge.  Ruby was well loved and cared for in her short stay with MWCR thanks to her loving foster family.   She went with them holding her and telling her how much she was loved and will be remembered in our hearts forever.
