If using an Apple device, Safari does not support the 'upload files' option to add photos. Please use Chrome or Firefox instead.
Please check our List of Representatives to make sure your state/province is covered.
Owners wishing ARPH's assistance in placing their Australian Shepherd in a new home should complete the form below. After ARPH receives the completed form, it will be sent to the rescue representative who handles your area and who will then follow up with you.
Due to ARPH's limited foster space for dogs needing adoption, we may ask that you keep your dog until we either have foster space for the dog, or we can help you to find that perfect permanent home for your dog. Please plan ahead, as we may not be able to assist if only given a few days' notice.
ARPH is only able to accept purebred Australian Shepherds into the program. Registration papers are not a requirement.
If your dog is a Mini Aussie or Miniature American Shepherd, please contact Miniature American Shepherd Rescue.
Dogs may be evaluated for temperament before being taken into the program.
ARPH, AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY APPLICANT FOR ANY REASON OR NO REASON.
Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability. If the question is not applicable, please put either N/A or that you "don't know". The more information you provide on this questionnaire the better we will be able to assist you.
