Rescuing an Australian Shepherd is, to us, the greatest reward we could ever ask for. We are committed to saving this wonderful breed, nurturing them back to health, teaching them to trust people again, and then finding them that perfect forever home.
Please feel free to mosey around the website, see what Aussies we currently have available for adoption and find out what other fun events we have coming up! Remember, the Australian Shepherd is the most Aussome dog that ever was
(or at least we think so!)
Australian Shepherd Rescue Midwest covers Australian Shepherd adoption in the Midwest,
including Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Missouri.

Help Us Treat Our Heartworm Positive Aussies
ASRM has always made room for the Aussies who need us, regardless of the results of their heart worm tests. We are currently treating several Aussies who came to us with heart worm and we’re happy to do so, because they deserve the chance to live a happy life, heart worm free!
Our dedicated foster homes are prepared for their long term furry guests while they finish up and recover from their treatment, and we’re so blessed to have volunteers to do this for us! But we could use some help with the costs of these treatments. Heart worm treatment for a dog the size of an Aussie can run anywhere from $300-$700 and up depending on how big some of these guys get!
We do not raise the adoption fees of these dogs, despite the high costs of their multiple vet visits, treatments, their extended stays in foster, rehab, etc. We rely solely on the donations of our supportive donors to help us break even, and to prepare us for the next Aussie who comes to us in need of treatment.
Please visit this page to contribute to our heart worm treatment fund so that we may continue to say ‘Yes!’ to these beautiful shelter dogs who may not receive the life saving treatment they need anywhere else. Be sure to include a note that it’s for our heart worm treatment fund! And THANK YOU for your continued support!
