Aussie Rescue

In 1992, three individuals doing private rescue were brought together by a common vision of rescuing purebred Australian Shepherds. They hoped to gain the support of the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA), which would enable them to create a network of volunteers who would be able to save their beloved Aussies on a much larger scale. These dedicated volunteers researched other rescue groups and developed a set of rules, as well as the initial paperwork procedures required — such as contracts, volunteer applications, expenses and reimbursement guidelines. These three rescuers laid a foundation that to this day has helped Aussie Rescue and Placement Helpline, (ARPH) maintain its goals and its strength.
