ARPH relies on its volunteers who give selflessly of their time, talents,energy, and love. We need your help and the help of every Aussie lover to rescue as many dogs as possible. Please consider becoming a volunteer. There are a number of opportunities available.

General Volunteers - This group performs a multitude of jobs, They may do home visits, screen applications, help with transporting a dog, fundraise, maintain webpages, help at rescue booths and whatever other jobs may arise. This is a great way to begin in rescue and acquaint yourself with how it works.

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 that they are caring for. 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 Aussie

JOIN THE AUSSIE CUR (CANINE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD)

Think you might like to help Aussie rescue in some way, but can't foster? Sometimes an adopter wants to adopt an Aussies who is being fostered in another state, or a volunteer who can't foster another Aussie can spring an Aussie from a shelter, but the foster home is some distance away. If you have a car and a little time, you could help transport Aussies from shelters to foster homes or from foster homes to forever homes. The Aussies, the adopters and the foster homes would be very grateful for your help! Please consider signing up for the Aussie CUR (Canine Underground Railroad) list on Yahoo! Groups. You will only receive emails looking for transport help--no deluge of off topic chit-chat emails. Most transport legs are under 100 miles one way.

If you don't have the time to volunteer, there's still one more way to help. Our volunteers spend much of their own money on rescues.
