This place is a scam. They require a donation to consider an application then a couple days later say you can not adopt their dogs because you do not have a fence even though you put on the application that you do have a fence. They have about 300 dogs listed and at the end of summer half of the photos are of dogs standing in snow. There is no way that a private specialty shelter in Minnesota has 300 Border Collies for adoption and also refuses to place them. This is about extorting cash for the application process.
I adopted my Bruce (aka Tex) in February 2012 and he was the best little guy to ever come into my life. Ironically, he was not the dog I thought would be my first choice. BCRMN has a great adoption process and I Really feel that they put a lot of thought into what dog had the right temperment and personality for my lifestyle and did they ever get it right! Bruce has fit right in with my life from the first day I brought him home. He was about 2 when I adopted him but you would think he has been with me since a puppy. I would highly recommend this organization. The needs of the animals are always their top priority and they do all they can to ensure that the right match is made between owner and pet so that they really will have their forever home.
