About Us

NWAL Herding Dog Rescue, Inc. is a non profit 501(c) all volunteer organization.  We rescue homeless and abandoned Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties), and mixes thereof and rehome them loving, responsible and approved forever homes.  Founded in 2003 in the State of Alabama, now located in West Virginia, we take in approximately 100-150 Shelties, and mixes thereof, no matter the age or problem, each year.

We are not a brick and mortar shelter facility.  We are a network of foster homes, located in AL, KY and WV, that allows us to get to know the dog's personality and character, along with any special needs they may have before adoption.  Each dog is treated accordingly, then spayed/neutered, brought current on shots, wormed, heartworm tested (and if positive, treated), started on Interceptor Heartworm Prevention, microchipped, treated for fleas and ticks and groomed.

As with any responsible rescue, we are committed to our animals for life.  If for any reason the relationship with your adopted Sheltie, or mix is not working, or if your situation changes and you are unable to keep or care for this adopted dog anymore, we have an unconditional return policy.  Do not take this rescue to a brick and mortar shelter facility, please call us to arrange to have our adopted dog transported back to any of our foster homes that is closet to you.
