It is that time of year again! As we hurry preparing for the upcoming holidays, lets not forget the Shelties that need our help.
“Sheltie Angel” is a collectible Christmas Ornament, designed exclusively for The American Shetland Sheepdog Association and it’s endorsed Rescue Groups.
The ornament is available in 6 colors, all of which are handcrafted in the USA by the artisans at Incolay.
The ornaments sell for $24.95 each, with 100% of profits directly benefiting Shelties currently in need. It is a great way to give back to the breed that gives us all so much joy!

Be sure to place your order no later than December 10th to insure delivery by Christmas!
Additional information about Incolay:
Incolay is a handcrafted product that is made right here in the USA. It is not mass produced by machinery in China.
All products are made by hand, from beginning to end by skilled artisans. This means that the Incolay 2-part stone formula is mixed by hand, poured by hand, de-molded by hand, finished by hand and antiqued by hand.
There is a lot of time and work that goes into each product, which accounts for the cost and collectibility factor.
To learn more, here are a few pictures from some of the artisians at the Incolay factory.
WI Sheltie Rescue invites all the Adopters and Adoptees back for a reunion every year in the county park in Chilton, WI. That is over 130 Shelties returning with their owners! There is a huge picnic lunch followed by fund raiser events: rummage sale, silent auction, sale of t-shirts, sweat shirts, dog beds made by Lisa Martin, founder of the rescue.
Hugs to each & every one of you for adopting! :0))
Henry & Harley were part of the Buxton puppy mill.Amy & Doug adopted and adore them now! :)
Three of these Shelties are from Rescue, One is Joey (remember his story? aka Joey the Pirate), one is arrow and the other Snowy, all rescued. We had a 4th of July party not just for us humans but for Shelties too!
Left to right: Joey, Frosty, Haley, Storm, Summer, Tobie, Arrow, and Snowy in the front!
Nice job getting them to pose Heidi!
Madoo is a 6 year old male, color headed white sheltie that was recently taken in by Maine Sheltie Rescue. As you can see, he is a very sweet boy!
Madoo is currently on medical hold because he came into rescue with a broken leg, but he will be up for adoption once he is all better.
Madoo had a very bad fracture to his leg that needed surgery. His former owner was visiting his wife in a nursing home, who was outside. When he went out to see her, he let go of of Madoo’s leash, and at the same time a motorcycle was going by. Madoo went after it, only to get hit by a car from behind. :(
On May 22nd he had surgery, and almost a month later he was turned over to Sheltie rescue. His leg never healed and he needed surgery again – costing over $2000.00.
If you feel so inclined to make a donation to his expenses & recovery, you can send a check made payable to:
P.O. Box 304
Palmyra, ME 04965
Madoo had his 2nd surgery on 6/23 and it went really well! He is now on the mend. (It takes 8 weeks for a bone to heal.) The rescue bank account will hopefully heal faster with help. ;)
Madoo is listed on petfinder
& his listing will be updated as he progresses.
If you are interested in adopting Madoo or another Sheltie from Maine Sheltie Rescue, you can visit their website or contact Holly Fent. (There is normally a waiting list for dogs as they become available.)
10/11/10 Madoo has been adopted!
