Come Join ARPH !! ๐Ÿถ

Become a volunteer!

We need your help.  We are in need of foster homes and general volunteers in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts and central New York.  The state of New Hampshire is in need of general volunteers.  To become a foster home or general volunteer please visit and complete an application.
We are in need of representatives in Delaware, Maine, New York (western), Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.  What does a rep do, you may ask? Reps are the center of the rescue activities in the area. They are the people who approve adoption applications, determine if a dog is suitable to enter the ARPH program, and are the ones who work with the volunteers in an area. Reps should have strong leadership skills, be a team player, and be organized. They should also have Aussie experience and understand dog behavior.  If you would like further information about becoming a rep please message us.

    Good Morning,

    I recently relocated (with my Aussie ;)) to South Floridaโ€”is there a way to change my updates from the Mid-Atlantic to the southeast region? That way if I am in a position to help, I can.

    All the best and thanks for all you do for this wonderful breed, Christine Coughlin

    Iโ€™ve been getting your emails and now it looks like you are looking for volunteers and I canโ€™t NOT step up! I am limited in that I do not use social media, so not sure I could coordinate volunteers, but I do have other skills! I am a herding breed person, have had 3 aussies (last one was a rescue with a broken leg, heart murmur, skin condition (sebaceous adenitis), need I say more? Currently have a bearded collie, 3 cats, 2 horses, and chickens. I have been a home visitor volunteer with Yankee Golden but am on hiatus because they are only doing virtual visits so I am on hold because technology and me do not play well together.

    I am located in East Greenwich, RI and am a certified professional petsitter, so I am in the network on a daily basis and have a good working relationship with local vets and veterinary specialists in RI and CT. Additionally, I have two masters degrees and am retired. When I do potential adoption home visits, you get the best of me โ€“ I try to get a good read on the people as well as assess the physical environment, plus do some educating as far as what an aussie is capable of doing! I could also be available for transport. Have dedicated van with two crates and loading ramp.
