Kimba is still available for adoption!

Poor Kimba is homeless this holiday season after having one owner her whole life. Her owner moved and didn’t take her along. How sad is that! This girl is considered to be a senior but she has a ton of energy. If you can lob a tennis ball you will have a friend for life with this pretty girl. She gives heart melting kisses and has an adorable wiggly butt. Besides ball she loves going for hikes in the woods with her foster mom. Her foster mom has been working on clicker training with her. Kimba thinks it’s great and is loving all those yummy treats that come along with it. She knows her basic commands (sit, down, come, paw, back), but could still use a little work on leash walking. She is crate trained and housebroken. She rides beautifully in the car and she even gets to poke her nose out the back window so she can enjoy all those wonderful smells. She is being fostered with 2 cats and does well with them. She has lived her entire life as an only dog and will be placed as an only. She does not show any leash aggression towards other dogs. She is located in CT.

Nikki needs your help!

Nikki ARPH #13659 has come upon some hard times and could use the help of Aussie lovers. She was surrendered to ARPH after her owner was taken to a nursing home. If that isn’t bad enough she came into rescue in poor shape. She has skin issues which include hair loss and hot spots. Her coat is dry and wiry and very itchy. In addition she will be needing a dental as her teeth are in horrible shape.

The good news is she is sweet as can be and has landed in a wonderful foster home that is committed to getting her back to shape. All she needs now is a little help from those willing to share the holiday spirit with a girl in need.

Madeline Needs Your Help!

Madeline has had a string of bad luck, starting with being being born 4 years ago into a puppy mill.  During the last 4 years she has produced litter after litter of puppies.  Something happened, she was limping, the miller released her to a vet, who released her to Aussie Rescue and Placement Helpline.  Coming to ARPH is the best thing that could happen to Madeline!!!
Days after Madeline arrived with her foster home she was taken to the vet.  Her teeth were in horrible shape, she could barely eat.  Her limp was much more pronounced than anticipated.  The vet took x rays to determine the source of her limp, Madeline’s pelvis was fractured.  Now she would need two more surgeries beyond a spay.  First up she needed a dental so she could enjoy eating again and put on some weight.  At 37 pounds, she was under weight.
A week after arrival Madeline was scheduled for her dental.  During the pre dental exam, the vet felt a lump near her breast.  The tumor was odd enough that the vet removed it and another lump during her dental surgery.  He sent the lumps out to be biopsied.  It was a long week while we all waited to find out the type of mammary tumor.  Everyone was happy to find out the tumor was benign!!!
Next up Madeline will be spayed, no more puppies, for this sweet girl!!!!  Lastly she will need to have a femoral head and neck removal to her left hip.  She will have a long recover, but she will not be in pain anymore.
The vet said said she has as strong a will to live as any dog he’s every dealt with. He wants to get her back to normal as soon as possible.  Everyone who meets Madeline sees her sweet disposition and her drive to enjoy life.   Total expenses will be over $6000 to cover Madeline’s surgeries.  Will you please donate to help cover our costs?  Please go to our page,, click on the paypal link to donate.  Include Madeline’s name and number 14132 in your donation.
Our many thanks!
