Oldies Club

The Oldies Club helps older dogs find forever homes. Homes and volunteers needed across the UK.

Tagged with 'Collies & Shepherds'

Please also consider our Overlooked Oldies- the dogs who have been patiently waiting for new homes longest of all. They desperately need homes of their own! You can submit an oldie for listing by our site editors here .

We also have some non-oldie dogs who need very special homes due to mental or physical problems, listed in Other Special Dogs Needing Homes. Please consider them!

You can also browse all dogs needing homes by size, type, and what sort of home might be suitable here ->
