We Have the Power to Impact the Lives of these Amazing Dogs, and We’re Doing Something About It

ECHO’s mission is to rescue herding breed dogs, primarily Border Collies, Aussies, Cattle Dogs, and herding mixes, etc, from high kill shelters . Our top priority is dogs who are “in crisis” – those at risk of euthanasia.  We then look to take in other herding dogs whose need may not be as urgent, but they are equally deserving of our help. As our herding dog rescue group grows, our efforts will become more diverse.

I'm Adopted!

ECHO Rescue assists herding dogs on the east coast. We focus primarily in the tri-state area, NYC/NJ/PA, moving farther out as needed.

As we know, herding breeds are very keen and intelligent. With this intelligence however, comes quirky behaviors, such as reactivity. As such, they tend to behave poorly in the shelter environment and are difficult to properly evaluate and place.
ECHO is not a shelter. We rely upon a close network of dedicated volunteers to assist us with our mission. We arrange foster homes where these dogs can recover from illnesses or injuries. Within these homes, we address any behavioral concerns and then adopt them out to loving and responsible homes.
There are many great rescue groups here in the Northeast. However, it became increasingly apparent that a local rescue was needed specifically for these dogs, and thus the formation of this group. We network with the larger groups and are now a New Hope Partner with the NYC ACC.
Monetary donations and supplies are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. This will assist us in defraying our costs, which include vet bills, medical expenses, food and supplies.
