me, And take me in your arms
Rescue me, I want your tender charms
'Coz I'm lonely and I'm blue
I need you and your love too
on and take my heart
Take your love and conquer every part
'Coz I'm lonely and I'm blue
I need you and your love too
on and rescue me
Come on baby and rescue me
'Coz I need you, need you by my side
Can't you see that I'm lonely
These words were part of a popular song
many years ago but we think they were written for the rescue effort...they are so true,
Aussies in rescue need someone to take over their hearts and give them love, hope and
happiness and they will provide the same in return many many times over. If you have
a place in your heart that needs filling, please call one of our contacts today to find
out more about how you can go about filling that place with a loving Australian Shepherd.
This site is dedicated to the memory of
Lindsay, an amazing woman who placed 838 dogs during her days with
rescue and who got so many people interested in, and working
with rescue, all across North America. Rest in peace
my friend, I know you're looking after all the Aussie Angels
and they are looking after you. RIP Oct 26, 2011

This free e-book is a very useful resource
on adoption that might be helpful as you bring a new dog into your
This 100-page book by Misty Weaver, co-authored with an
experienced Veterinarian, shares tips and information on how potential
owners can effectively prepare their home and themselves, select the
right dog to match their lifestyle, and ease the transition from shelter
to home. It also has some really great stories from real adopters
sharing the trials and the joys of bringing a rescue dog into their
Misty wrote "We want to help potential adopters realize
how rewarding adopting a rescue dog can be and to help make adoption a
bit easier. We do agree that at times it can be challenging but the
overall experience is incredibly satisfying. I adopted my first dog from
a shelter and didn't have this resource at my disposal. WOW...life would
have been so much easier with all this information in one place to view
and answer questions."
Some of the topics that are in the book are:
* A Month Before You Adopt
* Selecting a Rescue Dog
* Preparing Your Home
* Introducing Your Dog To Your Home
* Real Tips/Stories From
I was given my 1st Aussie, a month ago. Zoey is a 2 year
old female. I was a little sceptical of getting an adult dog of
a breed I wasnít too familiar with. I can honestly say that,
taking Zoey into my life, was the best decision I could have
made. Itís hard to imagine that, I didnít have to do any
fine tuning with her to fit into our lives.
My 11 yr Australian Cattle Dog & 6 Ĺ yr old Rottweiler passed away
recently. 6 Ĺ wks apart of each other. Zoey's natural
instincts have allowed her to walk into the paw prints, of
my other two. I have a hobby farm, with a few critters. Zoey,
is perfect with ALL that is in the barn, a good alarm dog,
perfect with my Jack Russell.
I would highly recommend adopting / rescuing an
Australian Shepherd to everyone. They are such an
intelligent breed, one canít go wrong.
Also please call us if you are in need of
help rehoming an Aussie...we will do everything possible to help with the
transition to a
new loving home.

Lost & then FOUND near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta
disappeared 24 April 2014 & was returned to mark 9th May 2014!!!
My dog Micah jumped out of the truck near Gap Lake on the North Fork
Road outside Rocky Mountain House. She is a dark Australian
She is missing her left eye, and has a scar on her left cheek. She
is wearing a camo collar and is timid but friendly. It looked like
she may have been picked up by someone as there were tracks near where
the truck had stopped.
We have lost/stolen
& found Aussies listed in the following areas:
Sorrow fills a barren space;
you close your eyes and see my face
and think of times I made you laugh,
the love we shared, the bond we had,
the special way I needed you -
the friendship shared by just we two.
The day's too quiet, the world seems older,
the wind blows now a little colder.
You gaze into the empty air
and look for me, but I'm not there -
I'm in heaven and I watch you,
and I see the world around you too.
I see little souls wearing fur,
souls who bark and souls who purr
born unwanted and unloved -
I see all this and more above -
I watch them suffer, I see them cry,
I see them lost, I watch them die.
I see unwanted thousands born -
and when they die, nobody mourns.
These little souls wearing fur
(Some who bark and some who purr)
are castaways who - unlike me -
will never know love or security.
A few short months they starve and roam,
Or caged in shelters - nobody takes home.
They're special too (furballs of pleasure),
filled with love and each one, a treasure.
My pain and suffering came to an end,
so don't cry for me, my person, my friend.
But think of the living -
those souls with fur
(some who bark and some who purr) -
And though our bond can't be broken apart,
make room for another in your home and your heart.
everyone. A little poem another rescuer passed on to me.
The part about some people thinking we are crazy is so true. Some
people just don't understand how I can do it - but to know I saved a life,
or made a dog happy, does it all for me."
Taking care of rescue dogs
is something I do best.
I know because Iíve done it, and Iíve surely passed the test.
The dogs Iíve bathed, the food Iíve fed, the vacuuming Iíve done,
And all to watch a frightened soul sit dreaming in the sun.
My own dogs Iíve neglected, but I tell them everyday
That I love and cherish each of them, though a new dogís come to stay.
I know they understand this, for in their eyes I see
The love that I have given them, come smiling back at me.
Some people think Iím crazy, some others think Iím great.
But very few can understand what really is at stake.
If I can love and help a dog to find a better way,
My one life is much richer; I look forward to each day.
So now you know my secret, Itís there for all to see
The love I give, the life I save, I do it all for me.
