*Foster Homes* -- We especially enjoy hearing from folks who might be willing to be temporary foster families for Aussies awaiting adoption. Our Fosters are our saviors. We depend on them heavily to give us more information about the Aussie for whom they are caring. These volunteers care for ARPH dogs in their own homes. They are often called upon to have dogs vetted, do some training and socializing of the dogs, and speak to potential adopters. They work hand in hand with the reps, as they are the ones who get to know the dogs the best. Their evaluation of a dog's personality and temperament helps the rep place the dog in the most appropriate home. Some experience with training is very useful, but not required. Veterinary expenses are reimbursed; foster homes supply food and most importantly LOVE to homeless Aussies.

*General Volunteers* -- ARPH has a multitude of jobs that are performed by our General Volunteers. They may do home visits, help with transporting a dog, fundraise, maintain webpages, help at rescue booths, etc. This is a great way to begin in rescue and acquaint yourself with how it works.
