About Carol

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
West Coast Collie & Sheltie Rescue is located in Southern Oregon on nineteen beautiful, secluded and private acres. We have a very easy location to find, and we're less than seven minutes from the I-5 Interchange in Canyonville and less than ten minutes from Seven Feather's Casino.

I am set up to care for both dogs and cats at my facility. THE FEE TO BOARD A CAT IS $15 A DAY. I currently offer doggy daycare in addition to overnight boarding! I’d be happy to keep your pets entertained while you’re away for the day. I can also visit your pets at your home while you’re away. Care for livestock will have an additional fee that we can discuss. Travel costs depend upon where you live. Please see my "Services Offered" page for mileage fees. I am not able to provide overnight pet care at your home at this time.

My facility has three large fenced dog areas and four covered dog runs. I'm in the process of clearing and fencing about five acres of my property. Once that work is completed, my furry guests will have five secure park like acres to romp and play on.

Our days start with outdoor playtime in the morning, breakfast around 10 AM, followed by quiet time.

Afternoons are a combination of more outdoor playtime, baths or swimming if it's warm enough, a short training session, walks down my driveway, and ball chasing down my long hallway.

Dinner is around 8 PM followed by quiet time, grooming, and TV watching while hanging out together in my living room.

Bedtime is between midnight and 1 AM. The dogs sleep inside my home in crates in my living room, or on a dog bed in my utility room. If I'm caring for a cat, it will be housed in a large cat cage ( 6' hight by 3' wide by 2 ' deep) away from the dogs.
I run a dog rescue and a purebred dog placement company out of my home which is located in Riddle, Oregon. I have over 35 years of experience owning and rescuing dogs and cats. Pets are my life and I would love to have your pet come for a visit, or to stop by your home to check on your pets while you are away.

I offer a 5% multi pet discount for overnight boarding for three or more pets staying more than two nights and a 5% extended stay discount for an overnight boarding of ten days or longer. Drop off and pickup times (unless other arrangements have been made) are between 10 AM and 2 PM.

THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL $5 CHARGE PER DAY PER PET WHO REQUIRES SPECIAL CARE SUCH AS ELDERLY PETS, INCONTINENT PETS, PUPPIES WHO AREN'T HOUSEBROKEN, PETS NEEDING TO HAVE A SPECIALLY PREPARED DIET, OR PETS NEEDING TO HAVE MEDICATION ADMINISTERED. ALL SPECIAL NEEDS OR BEHAVIORAL ISSUES NEED TO BE DISCLOSED AND DISCUSSED PRIOR TO BOOKING THE BOARDING.

ALL PETS MUST BE IN GOOD HEALTH AND CURRENT ON THEIR VACCINATIONS AND THEY MUST BE WORMED AND ON A FLEA PREVENTATIVE PRIOR TO BEING BOARDED AT MY FACILITY. Vaccinations I require for dogs: Rabies, Bordetella (Kennel Cough), and DHLPP (Parvo, Distemper, Lepto). Vaccinations I require for cats: FeLv Vaccine, rabies. I NEED COPIES OF YOUR PET'S VACCINATION RECORDS AND RABIES CERTIFICATE PRIOR TO BOARDING. NO AGGRESSIVE PETS PLEASE.

Excellent experience in loving home!!

We were going out of town for a couple of days and needed a dog sitter for our 2.5 yr old Aussie mix (Petal). We were thrilled to find Carol, she was close to the I5 freeway and very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. Carol is very friendly with wonderful furbabies of her own, she treated Petal like family and sent me updates and pictures everyday. We will definitely be taking Petal back, and will be recommending Carol to all our friends and family.

Carol took great care of my puppy while I was away! I had an unexpected opportunity to see my family across the country, so I had to find a home for my not-quite-housetrained puppy and Carol was more than accommodating! She sent us videos and updates while we were gone and it was clear after we came back that our boy was happy and healthy. She even took the time to wash his dog bed before sending it home with us! Great host!

I was very happy with Carol. She is prompt in responding, sent lots of photos and kept in touch. Sam will definitely be back.
We dropped our dogs off with Carol and instantly knew they would be well cared for. You can tell that Carol loves your animals as if they were her own. Communication was quick and easy and she sent pictures and updates throughout the day. Would highly recommend taking your animals to Carol.

I could not be happier! I talked to Carol every day, she sent pics and updates. My babies made new friends, got to do new things and got tons of attention! I was so stressed and worried about leaving them with someone new but Carol was very reassuring. I seriously had a very stress free vacation. Carol took the time to get to know each and everyone of my dogs. She spent one on one time with them and relayed to me several times how sweet they were. I would recommend this host to anyone! Her love of animals is very obvious from the moment you meet her! Thank you Carol til next time! And, thank you doggie vacay for providing such an invaluable service!
