The Border Collie Spot is a border collie rescue centre run by Gill White in Binfield near Wokingham, Berkshire.
Gill has been rescuing Border Collies for 8 years. It has always been her dream to rescue unwanted and neglected farm dogs and this was realised when her network expanded enough to reach right across the UK.
Gill has rescued hundreds of dogs since the rescue started and she will not turn away any dog in need of her care. She endeavours to find homes for collies of all size, shape, colour and background, no matter how tragic and damaged they are. Gill always has a number of rescue dogs for adoption, plus a few who cannot be homed and seven of her own border collies.
The expenses incurred for the care of these dogs comes from Gill’s own pocket and she is retired, so this is literally from her pension! Gill relies on the kindness of the public for funding and also has a small team of volunteers who give up their time to help the dogs and fund raise.
