ARPH is looking to rebuild bigger and stronger in the Northeast and MidAtlantic states. In order to do so, we are in need of representatives.
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. Reps MUST have some RESCUE experience.We are presently in need of Rescue Reps in Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts (eastern and central), New Hampshire, New York (western), Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.Please message us if you would like more information.www.aussierescue.org
Check out our newest fundraiser for some beautiful wreaths, centerpieces, table top trees and garlands. What a great way to help ARPH and enjoy the beauty of the holidays. These items make great gifts too.
For the entire month of October, ARPH is joining with My Metal Rescue to help raise funds for our rescue Aussies. A portion of every sale will be donated to ARPH. Perfect time to start your holiday shopping for the dog lovers on your list. Lots of breeds available.
Say hello to Laker. Get your application in now for this very handsome guy, with piercing blue eyes. Laker is looking for a home where he can be the center of the universe. He’s 10 years old, but can run and play with the youngsters. He likes nothing more than to romp, hike and then take a swim.
He does great on a leash and knows basic commands. He’s neutered and up to date on all his vaccinations, he’s a healthy guy!
Laker can be a little gruff and does better with females than with males, he would also be just fine as an only dog, as long as his owner is around to adore him. Laker will need an experienced Aussie owner capable of redirecting him when he gets cranky.
Laker is being fostered in Maryland. If you’re an approved ARPH adopter please contact Karen .
Hi Aussie Lovers – Meet Boomer, ARPH # 14275. This handsome young male, who weighs approximately 50 pounds, is looking for a home to call his own. He would love another young dog that likes to play to be his housemate. He also does well with cats, though does try to get them to run so he can have a quick game of chase.
Boomer needs a home that can commit to daily exercise. He would be a great hiking partner, though those chipmunks look awfully inviting to chase. He does have an “off switch” and is able to settle in the house once he has had his exercise.
We are looking for a home that has taken training classes and doesn’t see it as a chore, but a fun way to connect with your dog. He will be needing an obedience class or two to help polish him into the gem he can become. He may have some potential in the areas of Rally, Obedience, Agility or Barn Hunt.
Boomer was not exposed to much as a pup so is like a puppy in an adult dog’s body. He doesn’t know how to play with toys and will chase a ball, but doesn’t know what to do with it once he catches it. He will require a patient handler who will help him learn the ropes.
Boomer can be clingy and a little insecure so would do best in a home with someone home most of the day. He loves to be brushed, cuddled and loved up and tries to get as close to you as possible, He just LOVES hanging out with his people.
A traditionally fenced yard is required. Boomer has not been exposed to children in foster care so will not be placed with little ones. He is being fostered on Long Island. Anyone interested in him will be expected to travel there along with other family members – both 2 and 4 legged. If already approved for adoption contactPat.

ARPH was contacted by a local shelter about Ronnie, this handsome red merle male. Our volunteer said he is without a doubt the sweetest, most gentle soul she has ever met. He’s a true gentleman (of a certain age) that deserves to live out his golden years being pampered. Ronnie has a very sad story. He was picked up as a stray, the owner was contacted and told the shelter he thought Ronnie had wandered off to die. Ronnie’s owner then told the shelter, “you might as well kill him.” He didn’t want him back. ARPH is more than happy to have him! Ronnie MIGHT be 10, he might be older. Regardless, we want Ronnie to know what it’s like to be spoiled, so we are going to be super picky about his next home.
Ronnie still has plenty of spring in his step, the shelter had him romping in their yard the morning our volunteer picked him up. He attaches quickly to humans – he’s a BIG leaner and LOVES attention. He is a little wobbly and stairs can be a challenge. His foster mom is loading him up on good things to help him feel more spry and get ready for his forever home. Ronnie is also a little thin, so she’s going to fatten him up a bit. He also has a cataract in one eye, but it doesn’t seem to inhibit him.
Ronnie is being fostered in northern Virginia. We’ll post more about him as he gets closer to his adoption time. If you think you’re worthy of this fine gentleman, contact Karen @ email@example.com
Ranger is asking for your help. This poor pup was surrendered to rescue after breaking his rear femur by falling off a deck. His owners were unable to afford surgery and came to ARPH for assistance. We, of course, stepped up to help him, but now are asking for your help. Repairing his leg cost approximately $5,000, but this sweet, friendly pup deserves to live a pain-free life. He would be most appreciative of any donations and would be happy to send along some puppy kisses in appreciation for your support. To donate please go to http://www.aussierescue.org/donate. Please be sure to indicate the donation is for Ranger ARPH # 14274 so the donation is credited to his bill. Ranger is on medical hold so no applications are being accepted for him at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
ARPH is excited to bring you another great fundraiser. We have partnered with Treat Me Right to bring these homemade biscuits to your furry friends. From today until May 5th a portion of each sale will be donated to ARPH. Loads of treat flavors and types. You can purchase bones, pupcakes, boxed treats and especially for our fundraiser – treats in the shapes of bees and hives. The Aussies say they are delicious. Yum, Yum!
Please visit www.treatmeright.org and place your order. Don’t forget to choose ARPH as your rescue when you’re done shopping.
