Glen Highland Farm - A Camp for a Cause


Recently I was contacted by Debbie Lind, a Marketing Consultant for Glen Highland Farm - a Non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of abandoned and unwanted border collies.  She politely asked if there was any way I could help spread the news about what they are all about and I knew right away that this was a perfect fit for me. 

I hope you'll enjoy reading about this charming oasis and be inspired by their obvious passion for making a difference in this world.   I know that I am. 


Glen Highland Farm is a Camp for a Cause. It is great getaway where dog owners can experience a truly remarkable vacation with their dogs that was designed BY dogs for dogs and the people that love them. Dogs and their owners have come from all over the country and Canada to vacation here.

Glen Highland Farm, Inc is a 501c3 non-profit organization, dedicated to the rescue of abandoned & unwanted border collies & border collie mixes. Camp Border Collie for Kids, was a 12 year program that  promoted the principles of non-violence between children and their environment through work with the rescue dogs at the Farm.

The Farm is devoted year-round to the care and love of dogs and it's the only place where your vacation dollars go to a good cause - helping abandoned dogs.

Lisa - thanks for the great blog - what an amazing place - so, so special!!!

What lucky dogs AND their owners!!

Wouldn't it be great to have places like this nation wide???




Love Glen Highland Farm. I've been taking my girls there for about eight years. It's the beer place to be if you're a dog lover and nature lover. It's the best week we have each year!

It really does look like a piece of paradise and as you say, supporting border collie rescue makes it even more special.


We actually got to visit there last year and had an absolute blast! Buster was in heaven with all the off-leash space and we really enjoyed relaxing. The fact that the camping helps support the border collie rescue makes this the perfect getaway.
