Callie needs your help!

Our reps in the Mid-Atlantic region took in several dogs from a breeder that was getting out of breeding their Aussies. They did not receive veterinary care during their life in the kennel. One of these dogs is sweet Callie that is 7 years old. She had retinal detachment in her left eye when she was younger, causing her to lose vision in that eye, but was not seen by a Veterinarian for treatment. She supposedly wasn’t bred, but wasn’t spayed. Because of her age, we had a senior profile with urinalysis done to be sure she’s healthy enough to undergo surgery and we discovered she has a raging kidney infection that will take at least a month to recover from. We’re hoping it hasn’t caused permanent damage. We also discovered she has a few major teeth with pulp exposure that is surely causing pain and another source of infection, and her dental procedure(s) will be at least $1200. to $1800.

Her rep groomed and de-flead her and she was a perfect angel for the lengthy procedure. Fortunately, her heartworm and tick disease test was negative and has been started on preventatives.  She’s a sweet dog without a mean bone in her body and is very deserving of the best care we can give her so that she can feel better and live out the rest of her life in comfort.

Were asking for donations to cover the Veterinary expenses that are going to be way above what our foster dogs normally incur to bring Callie’s health and quality of life back up to where is should be for an Aussie her age.

You can make your tax deductible donation here: . Please indicate that you would like your donation applied to an ARPH dog in need, and then list Callie’s name and her ARPH number 13164.

Many thanks for your consideration and donation!

Pax needs your help!

Pax was picked up as a stray in Ohio, not in very good condition, and with heart worms. He’s now in West Virginia receiving treatment for the heart worms, which runs around $985! It would be wonderful if you could provide a donation to help defray this cost. If you click on his picture, you can read more about what a special boy he is, and can donate online. Please indicate the donation is for Pax, ARPH #13624. Many thanks!

Have you considered being a Foster Home?

wanted poster

Foster Homes work with an Aussie in their own homes for a minimum of 2 weeks before the Aussie is available for adoption. They are often called upon to have dogs vetted, do some training and socializing of the dogs, and speak to potential adopters. You’ll have access to other foster homes and ARPH reps to provide guidance, support, and to answer your questions.  Veterinary expenses are reimbursed and most importantly, you provide love to a homeless Aussie, on their way to their forever home.

If you think you might like to foster, please fill out an application here and choose the volunteer role preferred as “foster home”.

Thank you!
