The Collie Club of Greater Miami and ColliesFlorida Rescue
ColliesFlorida Rescue Inc.
CFR (ColliesFlorida Rescue) had its origins as a committee of the CCGM in 2000. The Club supported the efforts of the committee with fundraising and other endeavors to help save collies in need. Eventually we found additional funding which allowed CFR to become a separate 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. In addition, CFR is a member of The Collie Club of America's Rescue Foundation. We are currently considering a separate membership.
More information will follow shortly.
What is the Collie Club of Greater Miami all about?
The Collie Club of Greater Miami* is dedicated to the promotion of the Collie through social and educational programs for members of all ages.
Club members, through meetings, matches, seminars, clinics, shows and fun events endeavor to educate ourselves and the public as to the proper care and maintenance, raising, breeding, training and showing of the Collie in a climate of true sportsmanship.
The CCGM is a licensed member of the Collie Club of America and a sanctioned member of the American Kennel Club. We encourage the support of dogs laws of this state and encourage the sport of dog shows for both breed and obedience, the pleasure of being "owned" by a Collie and to conduct dog shows for the pleasure, exercise and recreation of our members. Obedience, Agility, Herding and Canine Good Citizen Trials are among the many activities planned throughout the year. Junior Handlers obtain experience at being a responsible dog owner and exhibiting good showmanship. Collie Club members assist in the rescue, rehabilitation and forever placement of Collies who for a variety of reasons were left abandoned. The Club holds fundraising events for the support of our Collie Rescue Program, Dog Shows and Educational Programs. *A State of Florida Nonprofit Corporation.

Why should you join the Collie Club of Greater Miami? ColliesFlorida Rescue? Both?
You should join the Collie Club of Greater Miami to learn more about the breed and behaviors of Collies. We have lots of fun showing our Collies in Breed, Obedience, Agility and Herding Dog Shows. And one of our important issues is the rescue of unwanted and abandoned Collies. We work together with CFR to find them happy, loving, forever homes.
CFR holds an Annual Rescue Brnch and other events to support our program. We also run an ebay site. More on that later.
