 Welcome to Aussie Rescue & Placement Helpline Minimize

We are a not-for-profit organization that is comprised of volunteers who are dedicated to the Australian Shepherd breed.

These volunteers receive no payment except the sense of accomplishment and personal satisfaction found in placing an  orphaned Aussie into a loving, caring, and permanent home.

Our Rescue Representatives, Foster Homes, and General Volunteers are accepted after a thorough background check . Each receives instruction in proper placement procedures and the care of rescue dogs. In addition to reps and foster homes who deal directly with the dogs, ARPH has other volunteers who perform many varied and necessary tasks.

The ARPH Team is comprised of people with all sorts of experiences "from breeders to pet owners" and each volunteer  brings his or her own individual expertise to the rescue effort.

Our rescue efforts are supported largely by donations from those who love the breed, including donations from the Australian Shepherd clubs, and donations received from adopting homes.

In addition to donations, we have a limited number of products approved for ARPH Fundraisers as well as several web sites who support ARPH with donations based on referral from our web pages.

Donations made to ARPH are tax deductible in accordance with the US tax code for 501(c)(3) tax deductible charitable organization.


Need fosters

ARPH is in desperate need of 
foster homes across the US and Canada. Our foster homes are our saviors. Without these selfless individuals ARPH would be unable to help the countless Aussies in need of rescue each day.
