Giving Back


Border Collie Rescue is the Heart of Clancy’s Dream. With the sudden death of the much beloved Clancy, pack leader of the Border Collies of Dogwood Ridge, a 501 (c)3 Non-Profit Foundation — Clancy’s Dream — was founded in his honor.

The global mission of Clancy’s Dream is to bring help and hope to Border Collies in times of need by providing a safe haven for high risk and unwanted dogs. We provide rescue, medical, rehabilitation and adoption assistance.

Locally, we also help families who are unable to afford medical help to care for a sick or injured Border Collie. Via community outreach, we encourage responsible pet ownership; however, if a family decides that they must give up a beloved pet, we take pride in finding a good and safe environment for their surrendered animal.


St. Louis Scottish Terrier Rescue is dedicated to the rescuing, vetting & re-homing of purebred Scottish Terriers.

Our adoptable Scotties come from animal shelters, commercial breeders, and owner releases. We completely vet every dog to the best of our abilities.


Kathy Hersey will be at the Festival both Saturday and Sunday. She will give presentations on wildlife and the work of Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators. She will also bring animals or birds for exhibit. Every year, an increasing number of wild animals are hit by cars, collide with buildings, and are electrocuted, poisoned, caught by pet cats, and suffer all sorts of civilization-related ills.

Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators, Inc is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing medical care, educational programs, and information about living with our native wildlife. Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators is a Volunteer agency. If you would like to help by volunteering or by making a donation, contact them through their website.
